Trend Spotlight: GREEN

by Cosette on October 25, 2021

Meet fashion's unsung colour hero, armed with all the styling power of a classic neutral -
but with a twist.

Trend Spotlight Green

Kicked off by Bottega Veneta in their FW20 show, green is gaining momentum - we’ve seen plenty of designers lean into varying shades of this palette coming through summer onwards. Whilst not traditionally considered a classic shade against the neutrals of the world, we’re definitely on board with green’s versatility. Here’s how we’re styling it this season and beyond. 

If your everyday work environment calls for a power suit, you’re in luck - deeper moss and khaki greens work beautifully back with navy, beige and ecru tailoring, and are particularly boardroom-friendly in strong, structured shapes (a la Gucci’s Sylvie 1969 bag). Earthy tones jump off well against any manner of darker shades of green, so this summer’s wardrobe focus on chocolate browns and beige makes for the perfect office-friendly duo.

Look to boxy shapes that add personality whilst still maintaining a professional focus - Bottega Veneta’s classic Chain Cassette Bag in Raintree means business, and Marni’s Medium Trunk Bag is our pick for a utilitarian take (with plenty of compartments for on the go).

After dark, anything goes - the brighter, the better. What greater accompaniment to a slinky all-black evening outfit than an acid-green pouch? Bottega Veneta’s Chain Pouch in Seagrass packs the perfect punch, or colourblock their Beak style back with an equally vibrant citrus outfit.

For the classicists among us, look to elevated textures in emerald tones to stand out - Alexander McQueen’s Skull Bag fuses classic crocodile with their signature edgy touch, or Saint Laurent’s Cassandra Bag in a croc-embossed shiny leather pairs beautifully with a cocktail dress or daywear alike (may we suggest this Jacquemus dress in particular).

On the days that call for casual, we’re looking for both style and functionality -  bags that can double down and elevate a simple jeans and t-shirt (or sweats if your comfort mode is turned up to 100%), whilst still handling anything the weekend might throw your way.

Trend Spotlight: Green. Bags for the weekend
Balenciaga’s Classic City Bag is a classic for a reason - no matter the outfit or occasion, it works. Burberry’s Check Classic Beach Tote in their signature check makes for a great option if you’re out and about (roomy enough for a beach towel or road-trip essentials), or make a nod to the trend with Balenciaga’s Large Logo Pouch in white and light green - perfect and practical enough for both running errands to a long Sunday lunch.
