“Murse”, Summer’s surprising trend
You don’t need to look feminine to sport an accessory traditionally associated with women’s fashion. The last runways showed us how the attitude toward bags in menswear is changing. If several years ago it was something like a taboo, now it has become one of the hottest trends.
Men’s bags were almost in every fashion shows this season. In Milan, Fendi collaboration with a Japanese brand PORTER presented men’s versions of the label’s signature Baguette and Peekaboo bags. At the last runways Celine, Jacquemus, Prada, ALYX, Berluti, Dior and others were presented the most diverse models of men’s bags: sleek leather purses, wearing as a clutch, netted fanny bags, where you can hold just an iPhone or an orange, silky nylon bags, variations of the label’s hit Puzzle bag by Loewe, etc.
But the most interesting variations of a man’s bags were made by Virgil Abloh — creative director in Louis Vuitton. The designer created a lot of different versions of men’s bags; iridescent, semi-transparent neon yellow, gray, and oversized black monogram-embossed in puffer material.
