Spring Trends: Silver and more structured bags *pics*

  1. From CHERYL LU-LIEN TAN article in the WSJ. I will post entire article in Wardrobe. Worth the read.

    [​IMG]Influential retailers from Neiman Marcus to Barneys New York say silver is the biggest color of the season. Luxury goods consultant Robert Burke predicts that looks such as Lambertson Truex's $995 silver handbag will sell well as women feel "the color goes with virtually everything."

    [​IMG]Handbag shapes are getting a makeover, too -- after years of soft and slouchy shoulder bags being popular, designers now are moving toward more structured-looking purses with top handles such as this $2,250 Gucci bag with red and purple detailing.
     
  2. Lambertson Truex's $995 silver handbag looks really fantastic! A lot of silver has been popping out all over the runways... LV, Gucci, Tod's (!!), and loads of other brands have come out with silver handbags... Really interesting come to think of it-that the regular black-brown bags are sharing their limelight with bright silver bags..
     
  3. Silver and bronze seem to be making a big impression this season which is great
     
  4. I just can't get used to all the metallic. It makes me think of the 80s.
