On Trend: Disco-Ready Bags

On Trend: Disco-Ready Bags

It’s been an age since we danced around our handbags until dawn but thanks to our roadmap to freedom, the dancefloor is calling once again. So, what will be accompanying us? From sequin-covered clutches to colour-pop cross-bodies and pillowy shoulder bags, these are the party-ready purses to invest in.

DISCO FEVER

Our desire for a party was playing out on the catwalks way back in 2020 as designers rebelled against our low-key lives at home. The result was fun-loving collections that would bring the mood straight to our wardrobes – if nothing else. So, whether you like your glitz in the shape of oversized sequin discs or as thousands of tiny light reflectors, Miu Miu, Paco Rabanne and Loewe have got an invention that will hit the spot.

BRIGHT LIGHTS

The SS21 collections were flooded with colour and our accessories game has matched up. From Balenciaga’s cult Hour Glass bag in baby blue (and pink, lilac and white for that matter) to Gucci’s iconic Marmont Matelasse in vivid tomato red, use them to add a low-key shot of colour to pared back outfits, mix and match with other hues for an on trend colour-block effect, or simply go all out in head-to-toe shades.

PILLOW TALK

Cloud bags. Pillow bags. Padded bags. Whatever you’re calling them, there’s no escaping that our home comforts have followed us out of the door and into our accessories. Top of our list? Valentino’s plush Spike Me clutch, Saint Laurent’s chunky Lou Lou Toy and Burberry’s slightly more subtle Lola in a beauty of a pale blue.
