Why is it the most avant-garde bag trends always seem to emerge in August?

Maybe the answer, in part, is Copenhagen Fashion Week. Taking place during the dog days of summer each year, this is the event you need to keep your eye on if you want to be ahead of the curve with the latest accessories.

This year, the breakthrough news item is an intricately beaded little gem of a bag from British-based label Shrimps. Named Antonia, the design is difficult to miss on the sidewalks thanks to the pearlescent embellishments that entirely cover the body and even the dainty handle.

Compact and beautifully textured, it’s no wonder that the fashion savvy are snatching up this piece. Expect to only see more of Antonia when the Big Four hit in under a month. — jas
