The Minimalist Edge Handbag

Spring 2023 Fashion Accessory Trend

Style remains at the forefront of a minimalist design aesthetic.

A form of Soulful minimalism remained an undercurrent throughout several key presentations for S/S 23, underscored by the beauty in the accessories. Clean lines, uncluttered design and minimal details spoke volumes for this stylish aesthetic and will render several items as classic collectables for the future.

Both Jil sander and Eudon Choi reimagined styles such as the barrel. Jil Sander added a flap closure and an elongated adjustable shoulder strap so the piece can be carried as a clutch, handheld, or shoulder bag. At the same time, Eudon Choi’s design doubled on elongated handles for wearing up over the shoulder. The sense of practicality prevailed in the minimal logo triangle iteration that came in the shape of an elegant bag at Prada. If one was not enough, the same bag doubled up in two pink variations. Gabriela Hearst placed a sculpted piece into her repertoire with long shoulder straps and carrying on the box theme, an oblique-edged clutch at Boss and Coperni, the coveted oval shape swipe was even more delectable in pale barely-there hues as well as the beauty box. And finally, at Louis Vuitton, Nicholas Ghesquière cleverly enlarged the cloche clés key holder and Vachetta luggage tags that accessorize many of the brand’s bags.
