Stylist Rachael Wang, an outspoken champion of ethical fashion, says the year’s biggest bag trend has nothing to do with its shape or color. Instead, it focuses on advancing materials. “I think we’re going to see increased interest in alternative leather handbags that have a reduced environmental impact,” Wang said, citing Stella McCartney’s Frayme bag, which is made from mushroom leather made from mycelium which she says “will have a ripple effect.” on the industry.
