Woven Wonders of Spring/Summer 2013


Woven Wonders of Spring/Summer 2013

Look at these beautiful bags! Some of the most iconic trends of this upcoming Spring 2013 season are jacquard and woven prints and textures.

The classic Fendi Peekaboo bag is reinvented in a woven style, available in orange and navy. Completely iconic, this slouchy bag is beautiful and fresh for the spring (but can definitely take you through the fall)! Definitely a head-turner in either color.


Louis Vuitton put out a bright, classy yet funky line of handbags and accessories. They revamped their Damier in a variety of bag styles--mostly smaller top-handle bags that are variations on the Speedy, some clutches, and small square luggage-style purses. The pieces in the cognac brown are my favorite; with the perfect outfit (this being my ultimate favorite), it is appears to be a delicate piece with a dose of practicality, too. It's certainly big enough for an iPad, magazines and your extra essentials.

Marc Jacobs additionally contributed to this spring trend with his Marc by Marc Jacobs Mini Marc'd & Check'd Printed Satchel. This particular style also comes in a larger size, if the Mini isn't your cup of tea. Other pieces in his SS13 collection are vaguely reminiscent of his work in his Marc Jacobs line and also in Louis Vuitton.

These are just a few examples of this skyrocketing spring trend. See any other designers invoking this trend? Post it below!
