Trend Watch: Handbags


It’s not often we see so many different handbags popular in one season. This Fall you have several wildly different bags to choose from when accessorizing your favorite Anne’s fashions. Here’s a roundup of some of the best styles we’ve seen so far.


1. Drawstring reticules: A reticule is a small bag, usually cloth, drawn shut by cords and held in one hand. In the 1800s they were often embroidered by the owner. Now, these purses are finished in brocade or glossy faux leather. We’ve seen them closed with chains but also tied with a topknot that makes a loop to wear it around the wrist.


2. Boxy handbags: This season’s boxy handbags are plainly cut, a departure from the adventuresome spirit of Fall clothing. The materials are beautiful, faux alligator and rich leather or the like.


3. Animal prints and faux leather: No matter what kind of bag we saw, there was at least one in faux fur or leatherette. Bottega Veneta had a stunning blue and yellow snake print handbag in their show but we love this little faux animal print clutch from Montreal. Very Trendy.



4. Day and Night clutches: Bags which wander from practical day purse to Opera quality are in. Prada and Givency both included formal clutches held with casual afternoon slacks this year. They do have a thin strap if you need to sling them somewhere. From tiny reticules to tote bags, this Fall has it all. We are loving the trend of a formal clutch with an office look. It gives it some razzle-dazzle. 

Our bags are stylish and affordable.  Our handbags and clutches range from  $85.00 to $125.00. They are perfect gift for your favourite girlfriend or partners.

So come on in and find your best handbag at Anne’s on the Avenue this holiday season.
