We’ve already been enjoying the chunky chain necklace trend revival for a while. And now, it’s time for the bourgeois trend of the ’80s to embellish your handbags too! One of the hottest fall 2020 bag trends, your autumn handbag comes adorned with bold gold or silver chains that bring a bit of edge and chicness at the same time. Chanel, as you might expect, added chunky chains to their luxurious fall bags. JW Anderson and Ulla Johnson also presented on the catwalk beautiful bags with bold chains.

This is another handbag trend that came from a major fashion trend of 2020. The artisanal and hand-made style of patchwork speaks to all those looking for sustainable fashion. We saw this bag trend at Miu Miu fall 2020 runway. Additionally, Marni and Dior are among the luxury fashion houses that created patchwork bags for this autumn.

The Italian fashion label Bottega Veneta’s woven leather handbags and sandals are already a must among fashion enthusiasts. In fall 2020, the quilted handbag trend will be everywhere. Ferragamo has them. Valentino and Miu Miu too. The fluffy texture of the quilted bags seems almost as comfy and inviting as a duvet cover; it’s a handbag trend made-to-measure for autumn.

Geometric shapes
