Quilt-y pleasures

September 9, 2022

It’s been said that hugging something soft triggers the release of oxytocin in the brain, which in turn relieves pain, boosts one’s immune system and alleviates stress.

Now add that as another function to the lady handbag and you’ve got one of the hot trends of Autumn/Winter 2022: The puffy quilted bag.

A recurring trend from past seasons, this year’s version comes with the timeless structure of the bag made famous by Chanel but enlarge the diamond patterns and puff them up with an easy going, comfy vibe. It’s stark elegance meets the pop culture sense of a Jeff Koons art work and the insouciant attitude of Harajuku street poseurs.

On a simpler note, hug the quilted bag, will you? And stride the streets, cafés, clubs and lounges holding your bag as close to the body as it could get for comfort and security.

At Bottega Veneta, a cult classic regains popularity as the padded Cassette bag is being seen again hanging on the shoulders of A-listers like Rihanna and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hailey Bieber and Victoria Beckham. Colored brightly or in neutrals, the black version is also popular among men and as a man purse.

Followers of sci-fi will love the bright silvery The Bubble Fold and Go shoulder bag, which is soft and lightweight.

Prada’s iconic triangle logo gets a reinterpretation in the brand’s tote bag with patchwork motif. Made of Re-Nylon, which is regenerated yarn, the material reflects on the sustainable efforts of the brand. It comes with a shoulder strap for a modern touch.

Always with a penchant for sexy, Moschino’s M logo quilted cross-body bag has a gold-tone hardware and sliding chain-link shoulder strap. On the other side, it’s all fun at Stand Studio with its
pastel-colored, over-sized version of the puffy leather bag with chain strap.

Almost the chilly season? Keep snug with these trending cloud-like stylish purses and totes.
