You can’t talk about handbags for Spring 2013 without mentioning Karl’s enormous hula-hoop creation that stole the show at Chanel. Clearly, that one takes the cake as the most dramatic accessories moment of the season. (And comes with an instructions on how to use it from the Kaiser himself.)
On a smaller scale there were plenty of moments that caught our eye for Spring 2013, like the lucite jewel bags at Stella McCartney, the damier checks at Louis Vuitton, and the rolled clutches at Céline. The clutch bag is having its moment on runways, possibly influenced by street style stars’ penchant for the style, but there were also plenty of bags shown that are actually large enough to hold more than just a phone and credit card. Totes came trimmed with fur keychains at Fendi, Alexander Wang’s hybrid mesh and leather bag was eyecatching if not totally practical, and Lanvin’s gold trimmed shoulder bag can’t be topped.
