Whether you’re an up and coming designer searching for inspiration in the new year, or a fashion enthusiast keeping up with the world of fashion, these bag design trends will definitely come in handy. We’ve gone through hundreds of popular designs, listened to what experts had to say and created our list of the five pillars of bag design you can expect in the year to come. Let’s dive right in.
The whole concept of less being more has never been clearer. Plenty of designers nowadays go for intricate details that look best on micro bags. While they might not be as functional as their larger, roomier variants, micro bags make for exceptional fashion statements. This trend will undoubtedly carry on into the next few years giving you a chance to get into the action.
On the other end of the scale, we’ve got tote bags that really excel when it comes to functionality. They’ve become a must-have for a day at the beach or a trip to the grocery store. Part of their popularity also comes from the fact that tote bags are usually environment-friendly and offer a better option than single-use plastic bags. This will definitely be even more important in the years to come so keep an eye out for that.
Staying in the domain of eco-friendly design, another trend that is bound to become even more popular in the years to come is creating handmade bags. Artistry is always in high-demand, especially if it includes recyclable material as is the case with LiMenka’s pull tabs bags for example. The adjective handmade often promises quality and, above all, uniqueness, so it makes sense why these bags are in-demand.
Chains have been used by top designers for quite some time now and combined with bags, they make for some exciting design options. The trend of combining them with bags started a few years ago but there’s obviously a lot more room for innovations. We’ve come a long way from the simple linked chain design as we move towards more complex and interesting variations. Chains are here to stay.
The asymmetric design has always captured the eyes of modern artists so it makes sense that it would also become relevant for bag design. We will undoubtedly see even more asymmetric designs in the years to come, especially in combination with oversized bags like the popular hobo models.
Fuzzy Material Bags
Finally, we’ll end the list with a fun trend that’s sweeping the world right now - using fuzzy materials to create soft and comfortable bags. Essentially, it’s all about creating an interesting tactile sensation for the wearer that also looks exciting. Keep an eye out for this trend in the new year as well as it’s bound to give us some interesting designs.
This list is in no way conclusive or set in stone. Chances are we will see plenty of designs that combine a couple of elements from our list to create something innovative. You might see fuzzy craft bags, handmade totes, and asymmetric chains linked in a fun new way. One thing you can always be sure of is that LiMenka bags never go out of style.
