Miu Miu’s Matelassé leather tote for Spring and Our Other Top Picks

on March 7th, 2012

When you think of springtime purses, you typically think of pastel or sherbet bags that beckon the floral colors of spring. We’ve searched for the top handbag trends for spring and found five handbags that express different styles that might not be in your typical spring accessories closet, but ones that will put you ahead of the rest for the new season. The first hot trend for spring is raffia. Raffia is a palm-like material that we are starting to see in tons of shoes, accessories, and now bags.

Our favorite one is the Burberry leather and raffia shoulder bag for $1,295. Its tan raffia base combined with caramel leather detailing give it an exotic yet modern feel. Because of the combinations of two neutrals, this bag goes great with almost any outfit and screams “fashion-forward.

The next handbag trend for spring is a spin on the typical evening clutch – the envelope clutch. Our choice is the Chloé color-block leather envelope clutch for $450. This clutch in particular embodies a traditional trend, color blocking, and a more contemporary trend, the envelope style. The lime green has a springy punch against two different shades of brown, creating a very vintage vibe. The soft leather elements and clean distinction in color blocking allow it to be able to have a more casual appearance than the usual purse you’d bring out with you on a Saturday night. The next change for handbags in spring is the textured tote. Whether it’s woven or embossed, spring will bring about tons of texture in oversized bags like totes.

Our pick is the Miu Miu’s Matelassé leather tote for $2,200. Its soft rose pink color acts a neutral but gives a bit more vibrancy than just a classic beige. The subtly ruffled exterior adds an element to the overly structured and tailored bags we’ve been so used to seeing in the past. The partially silver linked handles create an additional form of texture that ties everything together in a gorgeous, sophisticated bag.

The fourth spring handbag that we desperately need is the Victoria Beckham Victoria leather tote for $3,250. This beautifully crafted tote makes a statement with a bold pop or orange with black sides and handles. The geometric shape and expertly chosen hues make it not only chic and elegant, but also sultry and edgy. The last handbag look for spring is carrying a bright satchel.

Our pick is the Proenza Schouler small leather satchel for $1,225. The neon-coral color gives it a fashionable pop of color that will stand out against any outfit. The belt buckle straps and gold hardware are sleek additions to this fabulous bag. Whatever your style is, these five bags are the top choices for spring and utterly amazing.
