The Five Must-Have Shades This Year
As seen often on the runways and even social media, the trend of bold and bright-colored handbags isn’t going anywhere for spring/summer 2022. While black and brown hues are still a classic, the most favored bag colors this season are the ones that pop. Here’s our colorful selection of handcrafted designer bags for 2022.
An intense yet pure green, kelly green has without a doubt been one of the most popular shades in the fashion world over the past two years. We can most likely attribute its skyrocketing popularity to one Milan-based maison in particular, Bottega Veneta, and its now iconic pouch bag. Luckily we gathered some affordable Made in Italy handbag options that offer the same oomph without the bloated price tag.
The newest, hottest hue for spring/summer 2022. No longer reserved for just Barbie, hot pink can be seen just about everywhere lately. Whether for a monochrome look or multicolored ensemble, a hot pink purse is sure to dazzle. From a snakeskin clutch bag to a reversible calfskin tote bag, our hot pink picks are not only super fashionable, but also carefully crafted and made to last a lifetime.
What’s more fitting for the sunny seasons than a vibrant bright yellow top handle bag? Last year’s pastel, pale yellow trend made its way for a more radiant shade in 2022. Yellow, in fact, is the color of hope and happiness, associated often with warmth and high energy. This color’s an instant mood booster, especially when you have it—in the most literal sense—at your fingertips. Bring a little bit of sunshine everywhere you go with these Mirta classics.
This elegant tint of blue has been spotted all over the place, in street style and on the catwalk. It is said to have come from England in the early 1800s, when a dress was made in the custom color for Queen Charlotte. Too saturated for a routine blue yet too light for navy, royal blue is definitely a shade that makes a statement all year round. Take your pick between a royal blue leather top handle bag or super summery crochet mini.
Last but certainly not least is this fiery favorite. Certainly on trend, or fire if you will, bold orange accessories are a spring/summer essential. Orange might be one of those colors we tend to shy away from, especially for neutral lovers, but it’s fun to experiment and play with the different shades. Whether you’re a color minimalist or the more adventurous type, a tangerine-tinted handbag—bonus points if mixed with another neon color—will effortlessly enhance your look.
Handbags are a non-negotiable any time of year, but the right color accent can make all the difference in your look. With any of these bold shades, you’ll definitely stand out this spring/summer. Shop the rest of our women’s Made in Italy bag collection here!
