At Mirta, we’re not so keen on seasonal collections and fleeting trends. We believe that something bought today needs to last for years as it is a memory, an investment to pass on to the next generations in the family, and a piece of a story to tell. Our artisans craft everything keeping this in mind. They hand make perfect memories and pieces of Italy, they don’t craft trending pieces or temporary work bags. For us, luxury is represented by the quality of the product and by the value that it brings to it. We follow our own fashion bag trends and we don’t have collections, but our products certainly do have style. A style that lasts for years despite the colors and fashion runways. With this in mind, we defined our own trends. So sit back and enjoy the read on what Mirta bags are in style for 2021.
What is trending at Mirta this year
(and any other year!)
Handbag color trends this year
To talk about what bags are in fashion now at Mirta, we first want to give you a view on our favorite colors.
We’ve seen woven bags on magazines and fashion runways these past years, but the history of “intrecciato” (a.k.a “woven”) is as old as many other Italian traditions. In Tuscany, the art of weaving dates back to 1500, but today they are still perfectly functional as work bags or shoulder bags. Our pick of woven bags: Oblo, Esmeralda, Sole.
Bamboo Handle Bags
Just like weaving, the art of making bamboo handles is from the Tuscany region as well. It then became a staple (iconic element visible on all handbags’ trend lists). To wear as top handle bags or as crossbody if they come with a strap. Our pick of bamboo handle bags: Posillipo Gaiola, Posillipo Fortuna, Lucrezia.
The new favorite fashion bags for ladies are the croc-embossed. These bags are always on style, so you can pick one that will always be on point with any outfit and at any age. The croc-embossed is the purchase of a lifetime, the one bag that will be stolen by the rest of your family. Our pick of croc-embossed bags and backpacks: Nilla, Xenia, Siria.
