Bright colors dominated the runways last spring/summer season. For 2022, however, one nuance particularly stood out: pink! The bright tone was imposed on all possible handbag designs, from sporty (Dior) to chic (Valentino), and will certainly ensure a few good mood moments in fashion this summer.

Bag trend 2022: Cylinder handbags

Quiet statement handbags will be one of our favorite fashion trends in spring/summer 2022. But how does this contrary interplay of loud and quiet actually work?

Statement minimalism at its best!
