It may only be the winter now and the days might be getting colder, shorter and more miserable by the day, but it is the fashion styles of the spring season that keep us going, the anticipation of wearing them out and holding onto those hilariously awesome bags or those chic clutches, the sophisticated pieces and the more animated designs. We were watching the Fashion Week runway shows with quite a bit of enchantment, our eyes trained on those handbags that came in different colors, materials and sizes. It certainly was a sight to behold. They are probably the most anticipated items to become a part of our daily ensembles from New York and Paris, Milan and London, where each major fashion city brought in a very different set of awesome creativity. For now though, all we can really do is wait until the time comes to be rocking these loveliest of spring/ summer 2016 handbag trends.

#1: Animal Buddy Bags

The most fun a woman can have without actually carrying around a pet is probably by carrying around a pet-shaped handbag this coming season. Designers have decided that animal shaped handbags are a hoot and a must-have on the runway, a rather hilarious piece that they expect many women to begin carrying about. Want to carry about a dog but do not have one? No problem! A woven Dalmatian can be seen at Kate Spade and we do not think we can go without; nor can we sit back and not enjoy those hilarious bumblebees and their intriguing hives! Thom Browne brings in the fish, though lacking in color and infinitely more wearable than the dog or bee, while we see pandas appear on Ground Zero fanny packs.

#2: Food Shaped Bags

We saw the animals, but what about the food? Honestly, it appears that cartoon characters have been the handbag design inspirations for we see everything from cherry topped strawberry frosting and sprinkled blueberry cupcake bag at Degan, to the strawberry cream and sprinkle topped cake that the ladies on stage mistake for edible sustenance at Betsey Johnson. Kate Spade has a thing for peanuts though as we see on the runway show featuring a movie sized bag.

#3: Item Shaped Handbags

There have been animals like dogs and bumblebees, and there have been food shaped bags like cupcakes and pizzas. And then there are those inanimate object shaped bags that are totally wacky sometimes, such as the Jeremy Scott old timer television set with missing antennas. Of course, flowers are a lot more doable as seen at Jeremey Scott as well, though Betsey Johnson has us wondering what is cooking with her oven shaped piece, a cherry pie left a-baking inside.

Have you seen the rose bucket bag though? Kate Spade really outdid itself with this one and made it the perfect It Girl statement accessory, something to turn heads, as it is super lovely. Want some dice? Moschino has you covered there, while Dolce & Gabbana makes sure you never leave home without a camera again, even if it is bereft of the actual technology.

#4: Human Faced Handbags

We have officially seen it all! From animals to food to even inanimate objects, we thought that there could not be another buddy style handbag, but apparently human faces are just as interesting, though slightly creepier if you ask us. Cute cartoonish faces appear on Dennis Basso clutches, and they only gain more details at Erin Fetherston with the long eyelashes and pretty little pouting lips. They all seem to be clutches in this category as well as we see yet another appear at Alice + Olivia, this time with big black sunglasses to complement those rather red lips.

#5: Fancy Fringed and Tasseled Bags

We have been seeing fringe for a while now. We have seen it throughout 2015 and it also appeared on the shoes andclothing for 2016, meaning that it was expected to be on the spring/ summer 2016 handbags as well. We see it with amusing colors though and some rather more retro meet futuristic designs, the quirky and cool twists brought about with bright colors, metallic and some rather unexpected placements.

Fringe looks gorgeous in the spring rainbow colors or the metallic versions at DVF, while it takes on a distinctively 1970s style at Tory Burch. We love the scattered fringe on suede at Christian Siriano, while it turns to futuristic clutches with metallic tassels at Badgley Mischka. Fancy flower fringes make their appearance with Monique Lhuillier, while we are full-fledged rodeo with the BCBG saddle bags.

Altuzarra makes the fringe and tassels look amazing, while it takes on a more decorative look with the chained drawstring bags at Alice + Olivia. Woven fringe looked especially good atAltuzarra though, making it a timeless classic in the ultimate shoulder bag design. Altuzarra is one of the most prominent tassel users for the spring season though, while Roberto Cavalli’s fringes are awesome!

#6: Fun Fanny Packs

A rather useful handbag design for the upcoming season really emphasizes the need for travel, as fanny packs that have been mightily revamped from the old days are spotted throughout, coming in furs and fringes, graphics or simple minimalism, the latter seen beautifully at Sandy Liang. Pandas on round packs? Ground Zero has us covered! Furry looks come into play at Georgine, while a rather hip addition of white fringe to a tan and back small pack at Baja East adds the right amount of rebellious youth.

We have the fanny packs appear on the back as well, held up by rope-like straps at Maison Margiela and looking pretty awesome, though we would have to wonder at the security of such a piece worn during travel. Kenzo has a combination of small bags actually pulled around the waist in the guise of fanny packs, together almost making up a constructor’s toolkit pouch.

#7: Structured Square Bags

One of the most common spring/ summer 2016 handbag trends seen on the runway is the structured bag, the one that is very clearly defined on all sides. Structured designs come in the guide of alligator skin rectangular pieces atZimmermann, while we see House of Holland, Hill & Friends, Sophia Webster and Mary Katrantzou all have some rather spectacularly structured bags on display for the spring and summer seasons.

The boxier the bag, the more appealing it seems to be, especially if it is nice and small and a clutch to boot. Add some mosaics as is the case with Lela Rose and you find some astonishing attraction to the tiny thing. Sophia Webster has a whole array of interesting boxy clutches as well, with pearly closures and interesting designs often matching the headwear. Dolce & Gabbana’s boxy bags are some of our favorites though!

#8: Half Moon Bags

Who does not love the half-moon trend out there? Victoria Beckham certainly is enamoured, so much so that her spring 2016 bags imitate the design with ease and gorgeous flow. This is expected to become the coming season’s new It bag that all the girls will be clamouring for, with the spacious feel and the very 1970s appeal.

#9: Metallic Handbags

Silver is big this year. Shimmering silver with a futuristic appeal has been the main look that everything from clothing to shoes has taken on. So it makes sense that we will see them on the spring/ summer 2016 handbags as well, albeit a little more toned down. We see a whole lot of the metallic articulation at DVF, while tassels come in hard at Badgley Mischka instead. We have to wonder if you can fit anything even in a chain mail metallic tiny bag that looks about fit to only carry a single tube of lipstick. The crinkled metallic silver of the 3.1 Phillip Lim fold over bag is simply too delicious to let go of.

#10: Bags With Chain Straps

Chain straps appeared as a trend during the 2015 seasons as well, so we were hoping it would carry on with a little bit of something new. That is exactly what happened as we combine the featured favorite chains with fringe for example at DVF, or with oven shaped designs as seen at Betsey Johnson. Even the Jeremy Scott flowers have chains to hold on to.

Pretty fringes added create colorful flowers at Monique Lhuillier, while we see a whole lot of chains appearing at Alexander Wang, Stella McCartney, Marni, Burberry Prorsum, and Balenciaga. Louis Vuitton is more typical, while the Calvin Klein Collection features a loop handled bag in black with golden chains that leaves us coveting more.

Denim colored suede? Chloe’s got you covered there with the gorgeous golden chain straps, though J. W. Anderson gives handbag art a whole new meaning.Spring/ Summer 2016 Handbag Trends: Bags with Chain Straps

星期四,10/11/2016 特朗普在投票日实现“逆势翻盘”,成功迈入“特朗普时代”的美国,将迎来哪些变化?专家作出以下猜测。 猜想一:“隐形支持者”助特朗普逆势翻盘? 竞选期间民调支持率一直遥遥领先的希拉里,明明在投票日以逾70票之差败给特朗普,最终却让特朗普逆势翻盘,专家认为,特朗普背后的“隐形支持者”功不可没。 外交学院教授李海东认为,与支持希拉里的精英阶层不同,特朗普的支持群体多数是中低收入群体。这一阶层的利益长期以来在美国被漠视, 特别是美国乡村选民,长期感觉被所谓“主流社会”抛弃、呼声被压制,通过对主流社会的选择说“不”来表达他们怨愤。 虽然奥巴马喊了8年口号“改变”,希拉里也呼吁美国“一起更强大”;可从今年的大选结果看出,民众不再相信精英的承诺了。这些平日并不积极参与或关心民调的“沉默的大多数”,在投票时却积极参与,最终把特朗普送进白宫。 猜想二:未来美国各党派阶层将致力弥合分歧? 经历了黑幕、丑闻、相互揭短,此次美国大选,美国价值观和基本信念因党派而产生的极化现象已成为最大的分裂因素。就连国务卿克里都称这次选举“影响美国形象”,“令人尴尬”。 在9日的胜选演讲中,特朗普极力安抚选民情绪,提出接下来将致力于弥合社会分歧,强调“团结一致”,打造出最强大的经济。总统奥巴马则在社交网站上分享视频,向选民传达“太阳照常升起”的信息,并希望选民能以更好的态度对待与自己不同党派的人。 美国媒体普遍认为,经历了一届丑闻不断的大选后,眼下特朗普最需要与竞争对手的支持者展开对话,安抚那些被极端或侮辱性言论伤害的墨西哥裔、非洲裔和女性选民。另一方面,很多希拉里的支持者并不尊重特朗普的支持者,这一局面也需要改变,希拉里同样需要向选民强调“团结”。 猜想三:贸易保护、移民和宗教问题,特朗普会不会“来真的”? 大选期间,特朗普在移民、宗教等问题上立场强硬,其多次宣扬的贸易保护等言论也让外界担忧,特朗普政府会不会采取更加激进的措施? 中国人民大学国际关系学院副院长金灿荣分析,在目前美国国内阶级矛盾凸显,白人反移民倾向严重的情况下,特朗普上台后的确有可能会推行更加严厉的移民政策,不利于拉美裔等移民。 不过,李海东则认为,候选人选举时喊的口号,往往与上任后的实际政策有差距。“特朗普本人比较务实,他会在某些方面做出改变,但不会像他自己说的那样改的特别彻底,因为美国的现状和世界的现状决定了,如果这么做的话会把美国和世界隔离开的。” …
