The 70s Inspired Bags

Home/Style/The 70s Inspired Bags

Hello, ladies! Today we are going to take a trip back to the 70s. Don’t worry, you won’t need a time machine for that because we are here to help you know and discover all about seventies fashion. In fact, the 70s are the new stay ahead in fashion in our days, everyone agrees with that! From big labels to well-known fashion designers are getting inspired from seventies features in their collections and they are doing an amazing thing. 70s are retro, hippie, punk, folk, denim style (you name it!) and here are included all the items such as bags, block sandals, midi/mini skirts, flared trousers or t-shirts with different messages on them. Probably some of you are familiar with these, I still have some pictures with my dad wearing a super punk t-shirt and my mom with a small leather bag. So, today’ s lesson is all about 70′ inspired bags. Stay close, learn and enjoy!

#1 Monogram styles

Louis Vuitton SS15 Spring/Summer collection surprised us in a good way. Perfect seventies features, signature monogrammed and we need to have in mind that logo bags have disappeared. That’s a big WOW when it comes to Louis Vuitton, king of logo bags.

#2 Floral/bold prints 

Graphic bags, thunder prints, flower power all in some amazing shaped bags. Colourful, but in the same time with a smooth touch of vintage, Louis Vuitton together with Nicolas Ghesquiere rocks this time!

#3 Denim style

My favourite ones so far! Denim clothing pieces scream “seventies” and now our bags will do the same and even that you don’t die for a seventies look, who doesn’t like to wear denim?! Very good job Gucci and Louis Vuitton, and I have to admit that I’m not really a L.V. fan, but they made a fab collection for SS15. Don’t you agree with that?

#4 Leather, leather, leather…

Until now I bet that everyone owns a leather bag, even if it’s a small one, a shaped one or a vintage one, leather bags will never die. Very easy to accessorize them, so wearable and, of course, handy, we really need them, right? Above are just a few 70’s inspired bags from Nicolas Ghesquiére for Louis Vuitton.

#5 Snake leather

Louis Vuitton designed a stylish miniature box shape with a dark green snake-effect design. Finished with a polished chain strap and the signature embossed logo; indeed, effortless glamour for a diva! Available on different colours as well, see  SS15.

#6 Retro-Hippie style

If the 70s were all about freedom, electric looks and variety of colours, why not wearing a little colour in our everyday life accessories? A smile (literally) on your clutch or a rolling dice, will make a hippie outfit and also a little craziness is not a bad thing, right? A mini bucket stardust crop or a polka dotted bag and of course we have something for the rebels as well, a fur-dotted bag, a big feature for the seventies, to mix and match different styles with each other. They are so cute and chic, and definitely are going to make your outfit look boom!

#7 Fringe style

As you can see above, mixing different styles, like leopard printed ponyskin with simple black leather and colourful fringe or a small gold monogram laminated leather bag with fringe on front flap, can give you the seventies look so easy. Gorgeous bags, now we get why the seventies are back!
