Shopping in New York: Our Favourite Bag Designs

As a product design company, we’re always out and about seeing what styles, designs and textures are big on the high street. Katie and Allie from our Brands team here at Matrix, have put together their favourite bag designs from a recent trip to New York……

Trends for women’s bags ranged from handbags featuring bold brand names and words, snakeskin textures and stud work, to more understated designs featuring painted leather, neutral colours and stylish bag fasteners. Givenchy Paris, Fontana Milano and Valentino are examples of brands creating bags in-line with these trends.

For men, casual backpacks featuring amazing fabrics (textures and colours), bold, in-your-face logos and cool designs for front pockets. For professionals, smart briefcases focused on the classic bag design with modern twists, sleek flat front pockets, matt finishes and detailing on the straps. Brands in-line with these designs include Jimmy Choo and Serapian.

We’re always out and about so will be bringing you lots more content focused around the places we visit and the trends, products and brands we love.
