These Pastel Bags Are The Instant Mood Lifters You Need

This season's pretty pastel bags are more than just It-accessories – they're bonafide mood lifters too.

Spring/Summer 2020 has seen a slew of colour-injected trends. From blazing bold neons to single-hued takeovers (‘EU blue’, anyone?) the runways across New York, London, Paris and Milan posed a medley of choices. Perhaps the most pleasing of the lot though? The round-up of pretty, delicate pastels that found themselves on a range of iconic It bags. At Gucci, a Paddle Pop spired makeover of the Marmont shoulder bag – we dare you to not think of the ice-cream – and at Louis Vuitton, a Spring-appropriate play on fan-favourite Alma BB. Fashion’s edgy players tried pastels out too: Balenciaga’s edgy B. Wallet On Chain sees a version in powdery pink and Chanel’s Boy Chanel goes for a soft, canary yellow. If you haven’t already gotten into the spirit of things, here’s our curation of pastel bags to help get you going.
