Coccinelle’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection is now hitting travel retail shelves worldwide.

Optimism, an explosion of color and easy appeal are the themes of the new collection. Bags have pure lines. 

Carefree, playful, fresh are the keywords for handbags and soft satchels that hark back to the glamour of the 50s and 60s. Pastels, soft yellow, baby pink and light blue are used, along with multi-colored candies and cookie bag charms. The small bag can be worn alone or adorning a larger bag.

The Gitane model is described as a little rock-and-roll and a little globetrotter in spirit. Shoulder, travel and bucket bags are made from suede, leather, honeycomb canvas and feature gipsy embroideries. The 70s-inspired saddle bag is unlined and embellished by laser cuts and golden clasps. There are two removable guitar shoulder straps: leather for the city and woven canvas for a bohemian look. 

Metropole du Monde are urban-inspired, minimalistic models, which are described as pure and simple bags to be worn every day. White prevails. The only decoration is the play of black and white, and the laser-cut technique with an optical chiaroscuro effect. 

Inspired by the sea, Marine has a clean design. Backpacks, bucket bags and satchels, also in mini versions, come in solid colors – white, blue and red. In addition, they are available in men’s necktie-inspired micro prints. 

Girly bags include calf skin in macaron color shades for the Clessidra shoulder bag, while an enamel clasp is used for the brand’s signature Arlettis model. Flower power prints pop up everywhere, even on the travel bag.

Functional minimalism is the theme of Coccinelle’s shoulder bags, satchels and shoppers. Innovative workwear can be seen on the bi-color, python-print leather, contrast linings and detailing.

Other highlights include the practical briefcase and the tote, with adjustable handles for two lengths – hand and shoulder. Shapes, stitching and metal studs are softened by the suppleness of suede, python-print and deer-print leather. Powdery pink and terracotta hues are inspired by the deserts of California. 

The collection also features scarves, jewelry and small leather goods, for a day-to-night cheerful touch, the company said.
