New York Fashion Week Spring 2015 has quickly come to a close and designers, editors and models alike all impressed on and off the runways. Instead of our usual trend round-up, this season we are talking the best of bags.  We are eyeing up the handbags on the runways and on the street. Designers showed a lot of statement handbags from kitschy clutches to bold backpacks. They didn’t disappoint and neither did all the fashionistas who attended the Spring 2015 shows. Current season or classics, we saw a lot of stand out  handbags.  See our best in bags countdown:

Fashion Week Report

new-york-fashion-week

The week that every fashionista waits for twice a year is upon us. If you aren’t an avid fashion follower than you may be wondering what I could possibly be referring to. Well for those of you who don’t know, Wednesday February 6 marked the start of the biannual New York Fashion Week. Twice a year designers, models, and fashion lovers alike flock to the Big Apple to preview the clothing lines from the most incredible designers around the world. Fashionistas from all over the globe dream of sitting in the coveted front row of their favorite fashion designer’s runway show. While we can’t be in NYC this week, we can dream for now and of course preview the presentations online. This week we look ahead to Fall 2013 to see what trends are going to be must haves. Fashion Week is only half way through, but here is what we have seen thus far.

Layering

Many designers are sending their models down the runway donning layer upon layer. While layering is nothing new to the Fall season, the trend seemed especially prevalent this year.  BCBG and Kimberly Ovitz were two designers that showed this trend in their presentations.

Cobalt Blue

One of the hot colors for Fall is bound to be cobalt blue. The hue is popping up on runways through out the Big Apple. If you are afraid to wear all out color, incorporate colbalt into your accessories.

Black and White

The classic color combination of black and white is making a huge statement this year on the runway. It has always been a wardrobe staple but this season it is making an edgy comeback. The color combo is hitting the runway in a graphic bold way.  Jason Wu perfected the look in his Fall 2013 show.
