Printed handbags made a shining debut on the Spring 2014 runways, emblazoned with bold optic patterns, abstract florals and even the occasional artistically rendered woman. Emporio Armani, Prada, Fendi ImaxTree Designers including Giorgio Armani for Emporio Armani , Miuccia Pradafor Prada andSilvia Venturini Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld for Fendi accessorized their runway looks with printed bags at the shows. At Emporio Armani, washed-out floral patterns lent a feminine touch to menswear-inspired clothing. Prada dabbled in both bold color and Pop Artesque profiles of women on its bags. At Fendi, fluid, eye-catching prints were among the statement bags shown. Celebrities known for pushing the fashion envelope have been quick to embrace this trend.
