The accordion bag continues to be an extremely important silhouette. This season, we see it primarily in the smaller silhouettes with either a short shoulder or cross body strap. Mixing of materials and skins create a unique look. Incorporating metal trim and color blocking creates a preppy feel. Inspired by the classics, envelope flap and wide strap are common details. Additional details include ribbon or knotted handles, oversized hardware, patchwork guitar straps, appliques and pops of skin.See similar products from China suppliers
Saddle bag is by far the most important silhouette of the season. Its popularity only continues to grow. This season is all about finding the next update for this must-have silhouette. There are different spins from the basic shape such as incorporating a soft knotted strap, adding contrast appliques or contrast stitching. Adding details include mixing patterns and embellishments with chains and studs.See similar products from China suppliers
The bowler bag is a key silhouette, especially for the women's market. This season, we see it softening up its slouchy squared body. There is a focus on texture and more individual details like wrapped body and updated ID tag. Clean details are also popular like snap studs and color-blocked sections. Additional details include metal clip chain straps, fur body, patches and embossing.See similar products from China suppliers
The pump continues to be an important silhouette and this season the focus is on straps. Two key toe shapes are seen across all of the pump variations with the pointed toe and the softly rounded almond toe, along with the chunky heel. The ankle strap pump is perfect for open-shank designs. Silhouette is simple in the front, allowing jewel detail on the heel to make the statement. Additional elements are added as kiltie or tassels on the ankle strap, forward-facing buckles and gold-plated heel.See similar products from China suppliers
The mid-calf boot continues to be a strong boot silhouette, offering an additional shaft height. Details like a frayed edge, circular buckle, harness strap and staple studs help in making a strong statement.See similar products from China suppliers

Details include pattern play, fringe and embroidery for added embellishment.See similar products from China suppliers
