Fall Trend: Patterned Bags

Vanessa Bruno interpreted her signature tote in a psychedelic print. Rebecca Minkoff went on safari. And BE & D looked to leopard. Print bags are making waves this season, and no pattern or texture is off limits. Wayuu Taya Foundation to JADEtribe, M Missoni to DVF, everyone’s getting in on this story. “This fall we’re seeing lots of texture, prints, and patterns in bags,” says Shopbop Fashion Director Kate Ciepluch. “Whether it’s a pony bag in a leopard print or a neo-native fabric carryall, there was a lot of novelty out there.”

But a busy pattern can be hard to dress for. Kate’s advice? “Keep your apparel minimal and monochromatic,” she says. “Updated classics in earth tones create a nice balance and make the bag really stand out.”
