Up The Ante With These 18 Top Handle Bags That You Can Take From Day To Nightby | July 15, 2019
One of the hottest trends that was generously witnessed on SS19 runways and all through fashion month street style was the revival of everything vintage, especially from the ’80s and ’90s. Whether it was in the form of silhouettes (exaggerated shoulders, relaxed tailoring), colours (neon, tone-on-tone), prints (tie-dye, vintage wallpapers) or accessories (belt bag, scrunchies, white sneakers, strappy sandals, cat eye sunnies), the fashion forward are still mulling over retro trends that seem to have cemented their presence in the sartorial world. And of this revival was born the new top handle bag. A far cry from the antiquated style from decades ago, the modern version comes in a spectrum of colours, materials, and off-kilter shapes. Think cylindrical, circular, half-moon, and orb, in addition to the structured bucket and boxy styles. This sudden rise can possibly be accredited to the emergence of contemporary accessories brands that are reinventing the handbag as we know it. Staud, Danse Lente, Cult Gaia, and Boyy are only a few of the many new labels that are upping the ante with their unique take on classic styles.
If you’ve found yourself lusting over the modern iterations of the top handle one too many times, it’s time to bag one for yourself (pun intended!) from our curated edit of the most coveted top handle bags currently doing the rounds.
