Spring 2022's Top Designer Handbag Trends
The biggest handbag trends spotted on the runways of the Spring/Summer 2022 shows were...
While we don’t exactly consider ourselves trendsetters, when we heard that Vintage Revival was trending for 2022, we got excited. Late 90s bags have been trending for some time now with the revival of logomania, the Fendi Baguette, and Prada’s Re-Nylon collection, and while top designers have reimagined and reissued many of these designs, customers are still craving the vintage versions and that’s great news for your store.
And even though it’s no surprise vintage and pre-owned luxury pieces are in high demand these days, what may please you is how much the hottest trends from yesterday and yesteryear have made a comeback on the resale market. From the slouchy silhouettes of hobo bags to the oversized bags Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were sporting in the early aughts, to bucket bags, designers like Miu Miu, Prada and Fendi took their inspiration from the past and it’s a blast.
Let’s get nostalgic and take a trip through the hottest handbag trends for SS 2022.
TOP SPRING HANDBAG TRENDS FOR 2022
As we continue to move away from COVID-19 and back into the real world, designers are responding with optimistic touches that are perfect for a post-pandemic world. From fringe to bright colors, and crochet to heavy metal embellishments, these are the trends we think you need to keep your eyes on for 2022.
CRESCENT SHAPED & SLOUCHY
Christian Dior, Fendi and Balenciaga all sent crescent-shaped bags down their SS 2022 runways, and now these slouchy, hobo-inspired bags (like Prada’s Cleo, the Bottega Jodi, and the Gucci Jackie) will be spotted on the shoulders of trend-setters everywhere. These convenient, comfortable, hands-free carryalls make the perfect summertime totes.
OVERSIZED & SPACIOUS
Ultra-roomy totes in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and materials were spotted strutting up and down the runways. As your customers prepare to go back to the office, they’ll be searching for an oversized, convenient and statement-making carryall as they start schlepping items to and from home.
Vintage throwbacks are making a comeback as customers search for some of yesterday’s best pieces today and many luxury brands are returning to their iconic roots. With Gucci relaunching the Jackie Bag, Prada’s Re-Edition Re-Nylon, and Balenciaga’s City Bag, designers are reaching back into their archives collections to bring back some of their most nostalgic pieces.
BOLD & BRILLIANT
To brighten up our lives and help us see the sunnier side of things, spring and summer bags and accessories will be bold, brilliant, and so bright, your customers might need to buy a new pair of designer shades. Colors like lime green, fluorescent pink and periwinkle will be splashed across the stores and streets of cities everywhere we go and seen on top handle bags, scarves, earrings, and more.
From London to Milan and NYC, chunky chain details and heavy metal hardware were all over the 2022 runways. Whether it’s a Chanel chain belt, a chain-link bag, or oversized metal logos, big, bold hardware was seen in a wide range of hues like gold, silver, rose gold, and gunmetal, and different weights and widths to fit everyone’s style.
While Louis Vuitton’s Noe Bucket Bag has been referred to as the original, bucket bags have gotten a stylish update for 2022, and that includes the Mansur Gavriel too. This season they’re crafted in smooth leathers with glossy finishes, contrast stitching, and eye-catching embellishments.
CROCHET, WICKER, & WOVEN
While it’s too early for crochet and raffia bags — unless you live at the beach — this crafty, artisan-inspired trend will be huge again in 2022. These breezy bags (and other accessories) will make a reappearance in a wide range of colors, details, and materials.
FEATHERS & FRINGE
The runways, like Fendi and Chloe, were aflutter with boho vibes, and the presence of fringe and feathers has us feeling kind of groovy. Fringe, which is one of the top trends for 2022, was a popular look during the roaring 20’s, but this time around the fringe pieces symbolize moving forward and feeling optimistic as we hopefully move away from the pandemic.

LePrix means “the price” and “the prize” in French, which captures the spirit of the hunt for pre-owned luxury. The thrill of the hunt sparked the launch of the world’s largest marketplace enabling access to shop over 600 designer consignment boutiques online. While working with hundreds of the world’s best consignment boutiques, we discovered that our store partners were wasting a lot of time and energy sourcing inventory to grow their businesses. They needed a convenient way to source more top-selling products like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, etc. from other trusted resale businesses. And that is how LePrix Wholesale was born.
In 2018, LePrix launched LePrix Wholesale, which is the only marketplace in the U.S. unlocking access to pre-owned, pre-authenticated luxury from the world’s most trusted suppliers at deeply discounted prices. Our team of experts carefully select suppliers, curate the most desirable inventory and inspect your orders before shipment.
