Trend prediction for 2010: Duffle bags
As the weather begins to warm up, we can start to peel away all of the layers and begin to dress a little bit more glamorous, and if you want the perfect accessory to highlight your chosen outfit then you are just going to have to invest in the latest trend prediction for the new year; the duffle bag.
The duffle bag will be huge in 2010, and not just in popularity, as the bigger the bag, the more neccessities we can fill it with!
The British highstreet stores have already sunk their claws into the latest trend and some real beauties are popping up in stores and online, but we can expect a whole lot more to appear as Spring/Summer draws quietly closer.
The likes of Topshop, River Island, Asos and Dorothy Perkins are all sporting some pretty hefty looking duffle bags ready for purchasing now. For a more chic and sophisticated look, try bagging yourself a leather duffle and the more tassels and details it comes with, the better!
These two duffle bags from River Island are exactly what we are talking about. The ‘suede pouch tassel bag’ has plenty of detail but not enough that it will distract from your outfit, and at Â£64.99 it is a great price for genuine leather. The more expensive ‘oversized leather holdall’ comes in at Â£199.99 for the genuine leather and great fringing, but if there is any bag that you should invest in, it should be this one.
These two leather chained bags from Topshop have got it correct once again. These bags can be used as every day bags but they are also a stylish way to carry overnight clothes for any journey. The ‘leather chain handle bag’, Â£55, is certainly spacious and transforms anyones initial ideas of the ‘duffle’ bag. The ‘leather chain tote’, Â£90, is again, the more expensive one but it is worth paying out for 100% leather.
If our predictions are correct then you will be seeing oversized duffle bags all over the place and there are already rumours that Marc Jacobs has designed some for 2010!
