A handbag update is the easiest way to give your look a new season refresh. For Autumn Winter 2022, look out for plenty of bohemian-inspired ‘hoho’ silhouettes, which draw inspiration from the popular crescent moon shape of the noughties. As for the season’s biggest styling hack? It’s all about doubling down on your handbag game by simultaneously styling a larger bag with a smaller, harmonious design. Not only is it perfect for those busy office-to-drinks days where you’re carrying a little extra baggage, but it makes twice the statement with minimal effort.
Read on to discover six of Lane Crawford’s favourite handbag styles of the season and find your perfect match.
1. LEMAIRE ‘CROISSANT’
The only thing better than a baked croissant? A croissant handbag. This understated Lemaire bag features top-stitched cut-outs and side knot finishings that very subtly reference the pastry. It’s ultra-versatile too – wear it as a shoulder or crossbody bag.
2. SAINT LAURENT ‘NIKI’
In all its crinkled glossed-leather glory, the Saint Laurent Niki shoulder bag is the ultimate new addition to your forever edit. With a touch of vintage allure, tonal YSL monogram, and classic flap design, it’s an everyday style you’ll be toting for decades to come.
3. ALAÏA ‘LE DEMI LUNE’
Alaïa puts a sleek, minimal twist on the hobo silhouette with this striking crescent shape creation. Crafted from smooth leather with hinged edges, it’s perfect for evenings that call for a little extra (handsfree) sophistication.
4. JACQUEMUS ‘LE CHIQUITO’
Jacquemus’ Le Chiquito shoulder bags have been the talk of the town since they were first released in 2018, and in 2022, they still receive the same fanfare. This season, it’s this super fresh mint colourway that’s set to cause the most envy.
5. BALENCIAGA ‘LE CAGOLE’
The ‘Le Cagole’ is favoured by celebrity fans such as Kim Kardashian, Bella Hadid and Dua Lipa – and it’s easy to see why. The style draws upon the roots of Balenciaga’s iconic Motorcycle bag but offers a crescent-shaped update and playful details such as a heart-shaped mirror.
6. BOTTEGA VENETA ‘CASSETTE’
Bottega Veneta’s iconic Cassette bag – the sturdy silhouette that celebrates the House’s signature intrecciato motif – is updated in a beautiful, soft pastel hue. It’s the perfect way to add a luxurious touch of structure to delicate, feminine clothing.
