Everyone’s talking about it. A purse recently sold for $185,000 at an auction, capturing attention nationwide — and all over the globe, too. The coveted bag contains several diamonds, and it is made out of crocodile skin, but not just any crocodile skin. The skin used for the bag is so light, experts agree the animal must have been nearly albino. Although U.S. women have an average of six purses, you’re unlikely to see mockeries of the expensive Hermes Birkin bag this fall and winter. Here’s what you will see.
The Sky Is The Limit (As Long As It’s Weird)
According to top fashion magazines, handbag designs during the fall and winter seasons will focus on one thing: personality (and lots of it!). You may see all kinds of fashion handbags and handbag styles, and they’ll be anything but boring. Wholesale handbags suppliers are already receiving shipments of bags plastered with SpongeBob SquarePants, bags shaped like sushi rolls and wire grocery bins, and even one bag shaped like McDonald’s iconic Happy Meal box.
Tech Giants Release Phone-Charging Purses
Wearable technology always looks like, well, wearable technology. Apple’s smart watch, the Fitbit, and Google Glass aren’t exactly examples of high fashion. New and clever handbag designs may be doing something pretty revolutionary — providing consumers with accessories that are both fashionable and functional with several trendy bags coming with built-in iPhone and iPad chargers. There are at least a handful of these bags out there — with designs ranging from bucket-style purses and small backpacks to sleek and convenient wristlets. How do they work? Users must first charge their bag; later, they are able to use built-in USB ports or other charging docks to charge phones and tablet PCs on-the-go.
