The satchel is a classic and iconic handbag style; but for fall 2012 there is a particular type of satchel which has taken the runway, and the street, by storm. The dome bag is huge this fall season and has proven to be a favorite of Fashionista’s on the street. This curved corner style satchel offers the roominess of a tote and the structured, vintage appeal of a classic satchel with modern intrigue.
The dome satchel or “Dome Bag” was dominant on Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Tory Burch and Alexander Wang’s runways. While many of these design houses carry dome bags as part of their classic collections, the style for fall 2012 has taken on additional seasonal colors and store buyers have filled the shelves with as many dome bags as they could get their hands on; oh yes, this is the current “classic” handbag.
Unlike regular satchels, totes and shoulder bags which are part of the fall 2012 collections, dome bags are being shown in smooth fabrications without a lot of texture or blocking. Dome bags have been released in classic shades such as black, grey, brown and ivory; but it is the seasonal colors which are hit this fall season.
The dome bag is hot this fall in shades of red, burgundy, navy, gold, orange, green and mustard. Most dome bags are medium to large in size and can easily be used in lieu of a briefcase or as a carry-on bag for traveling. Since dome bags are classic, this is a great season to invest in one which you can love for season’s to come. When shopping for a dome bag, look for colors which are long lasting such as navy, burgundy and red. Of course, you can never go wrong with shades of brown or classic black!
