The verdict is in: Spring 2018 is about to look a whole lot quirkier. As collections unfolded, the bags that hit the SS18 runways are statement making in their own right, all sprinkled with a dash of eccentricity and quirkiness.
We’ve got Loewe’s bunny-shaped bags following in the footsteps of its elephant predecessor, Gabriela Hearst’s accordion shaped bag that’s cooking up a storm in the contemporary front, and Moynat’s playful new geometric receptacles.
Check out the standout bags of the season that come in equally standout silhouettes.
Followed by the success of its previous Panda and Elephant-shaped collections, Loewe introduces the Bunny as a new addition to its arsenal of animal-centric bags. The Bunny is crafted with calf leather or shearling and folded details, completed with a fluffy shearling tail and dot-perforated eyes. Seen in pastel panels and gingham prints, the Bunny can be seen in six different designs and colourways and textiles including white, black and shearling.

For Spring 2018, Moynat is introducing new families of colours in the Houses’s iconic Mini Vanity — the cube-shaped evening bag we’ve all come to love after years of reiterations. New geometric shapes are also seen in this collection, featuring the Pyramid and Sphere clutches which stand out with equal fervour with their bright colours and fun elementary shapes. The Mini Vanity can now be found in yellow and red, while the Pyramid and Sphere are seen in shades of emerald and red respectively.

A brilliant fun spin from the typical straw wicker bags trending this season, this parrot-shaped crossbody is vibrant, whimsical, and will add a big deal of personality to your daily look. For those who enjoy sprinkling their OOTDs with a statement accessory, this bag is what you’re looking for. Style this with a pair of high waisted jeans and a bright floral top for a day at the beach.

Named after Saint Laurent’s iconic perfume of the same name, this black bag has a hard ribbed constructed outer in the shape of a barrel. Oozing of total rock-n-roll vibes and an oriental appeal that’s conjured up by the Black Opium perfume, this new unconventional silhouette also boats of oversized tassels as a statement detail.

Cool with an artistic twist, Maison Margiela’s mesh tote bag has decorative leather red polka dots and it also comes with an additional zipped coin pouch (10 points for practicality, we suppose). A prime example of the house’s knack in deconstruction and fusion of random everyday objects into works of fashion art, this avante garde bag will be a real head-turner on the streets.
