11 NOV 22

The designs you know and love will be honoured in fashion in the future, but with a twist, according to the winter 2022-2023 trends(opens in new tab). The next season will softly, compassionately push you out of your comfort zone with a regard for both the known and the unfamiliar.

even when carrying your baggage! In a striking color-blocking design, your simple flap bag becomes more of a statement accessory. For days spent working in the office, the woven tote that is a star performer in your summer lineup is converted into a laptop bag. In summary, the bag trends for winter 2022-2023 inspire you to do something new, whether it's choosing a striking colour you've never worn or trying out a whole new shape.

By incorporating woven details and basket-like textures into their winter handbag offerings, designers continue the summer's positive vibe (remember all those carefree beach days with the sun on your skin and the ocean wind in your hair?).

In celebration of its intrecciato house code, Bottega Veneta created shoulder bags with thick, over-under square weaving. Additionally, Christian Dior showed their version of a whimsical basket bag, and Tod's unveiled a capacious tote made of tightly woven leather. You're used to simple flap bags, but these are not those.

Brands like Tory Burch, Roberto Cavalli, and Valentino experiment with a variety of flap designs to make the basic handbag silhouette appear modern and new. These include vibrant color-blocking, intricate hardware and decorations, geometric patterns that subvert the typical fold-over aesthetic.

The round bag trend from this past summer is still popular, and spherical shapes from Resort 2023 are helping to keep it going into the winter. While AZ Factory sent models down the catwalk with top-handle bags in short and squat circular forms, Chanel presented a checkerboard ball fit with a top clasp. Ulla Johnson also got in on the action with a circular pouch purse that epitomised the brand's distinctively gently boho style.
