Jacquemus

This year many in-person runways were etched in attendees minds following the extremely highly anticipated shows.

After a long break that saw many shows becoming digital, the Fall 2021 Fashion Week round was as uplifting as Jacquemus’ latest collection.

Using his creative vision to display a show that focused on the designs, the vivaciousness of bold colours and the emotion of in-person runways, Simon Porte Jacquemus’ show left many in awe.

And with an artistic flair for stepping out of the trends while remaining forever on-trend, the Jacquemus bags managed to remain transeasonal yet again.

Making the Fall 2021 collection much-sought-after even on the warm days experienced in the Southern Hemisphere.

Have a little fun this summer and add a pop of colour to your outfit with the addition of a handbag, otherwise match your monochromatic outfit with the perfect accessory.

Versace

Colour is everything this season, and thankfully Versace understands the power of bold accessories to truly complete an outfit.

Recently releasing green, pink, red and gold bags, we have confidence that Versace will have a bag for just about everyone this festive season.

Releasing high-end designs inspired by bucket bags and a vanity bag, the collection explores the new while honouring the old.

Presenting their 2022 spring and summer collection during Milan Fashion Week, the collection mixed sexy and sophisticated with playful and vibrant.

Adorning dominant shades of black, many outfits were brought to life with a touch of colour in the simple details or through the addition of a bag.

And because here at Monde we love accessorising with a bold bag, we know you’ll have just as much fun as us when picking a favourite this summer.

Gucci

When people think of luxurious international high-end brands, Gucci tends to have a pretty safe place in the top end of the list.

Always managing to captivate the curiosity of many fashion-enthused attendees at Fashion Month, this year was no different.

And with a Hollywood movie set for recent release, it’s safe to say the brand may be having a few more eyes on it soon.

As a subtle nod to the film itself, the Gucci runway made a powerfully decisive move by choosing to escape from the Fashion Capitals where designs are normally paraded, and instead, opted for Los Angeles’ iconic Hollywood Boulevard.

Displaying an array of their small rectangular clutch size bags and iconic Jackie 1961 designs, Gucci continues with their recognisable pattern and horse-bit detailing.

Endlessly honouring the unique details and patterns that make the brand what it is, the bags on offer this season are no different.

Fendi

Eager to capture the essence of celebration, following the very lock-downed season we all endured, Fendi’s latest Spring 2022 collection focused on the glamour of dressing up and going out.

Playful in their approach with many of their collections, the latest is no different.

Experimenting with colours, shapes, textures and sizes, there truly is no limit to Fendi’s designs.

Inspired by the latest runway looks, we have compiled a mix of the high-end brand’s classic bags with a touch of their more experimental designs.

For two differing bags that are made for the essentials, the Sunshine Shopper mini leather-trimmed shearling tote and the Mesh Mini Mon Tresor bucket bag are a must-have.

Because while we love a big tote, a warm summer day out shouldn’t involve lugging around a heavy bag. And in shades that are both popular on Spring/Summer runways, you can’t go wrong.

Givenchy

Having the time of their life experimenting with angular shapes and angles, Givenchy is a fast-moving couture luxury brand.

Displaying meticulous attention to detail, their bags symbolise the brand’s unique vision of streetwear and casual chic.

Seen on the Spring 2022 Ready-to-Wear runway, the Belle embossed logo shoulder bag is distinctly Givenchy.

Designed with an all-over embossed logo in a geometric shape, the bag is overtly modern and abstract.

And while Givenchy appears to find comfort in the area of grunge and dark or natural shades, the latest runway gave surface to an array of designs and colours.

Symbolic of the collaboration between Creative Director Matthew M. Williams and New York artist Josh Smith.

Confident in the power of a bold red, Givenchy’s 4G medium leather cross-body bag in crimson-red is the perfect bag to unwrap this Christmas.
