Summer always is a breath of fresh air and news for the fashion world, the cheerful holiday mood stimulates the designer’s fantasy and the warm climate lends to experiment with shapes and colors: this tendency is confirmed by the first anticipations for the summer, as in the case of The Bridge, which for spring-summer 2019 plays with contrasts of similar colors, creative forms and subtle details.

For this summer red is a real must have for every style, declined in warm or cold shades, with no ifs or buts. For The Bridge the color red always has been an important protagonist in all collection, but this summer it becomes even more colorful in the different collections with women’s bags and accessories.
Within our summary of the new The Bridge collections we can’t help but start with this collection characterized by sophisticated and glamorous characteristics: the Capraia collection with women’s bags and small leather goods is distinguished by a particular texture with flower pattern printed with heat on the leather of every item. This style donates a visible effect to the items, which is also pleasant to touch and creates particular shades on the surface, fitting to every kind of style.
The design of the bags and accessories reminds us about the past seasons, but adds to the brand’s absolute must haves as cross-body bags and handbags large front flaps, whose simple but clear shapes and ample surfaces fit perfect to the creative solutions of this collection.
Also the offered color shades pick up the most popular ones from The Bridge, as the evergreen black and leather brown, but also red (of course) and cognac, which has already been a protagonist last year. Ever single of this shades contributes to lend a different aspect to the flower pattern: black and red create a strong but feminine look, brown and cognac assume a subtle and elegant style.
Of a more sober and formal style is the Santa Croce collection with bags from The Bridge, characterized by extremely simple and linear shapes and enriched by the small detail with tassels on the front of every item.
Available in brown, black and red, the Santa Croce bags perfectly fit for free time and office thanks to the capacious, comfortable and functional design: the handbag in geometrical shape is ideal for every day, when one loves to wear the right accessory for every moment or occasion; the shoulder bag instead in distinguished by its rounded shape, perfect to be worn on the shoulder during the whole day; the small backpack lends a casual look to the collection, by picking up the shapes of the iconic The Bridge backpack in combination with new and feminine details.
A good compromise between the graceful Capraia and the elegant Santa Croce is the Elba collection with bags and cross-body bags from The Bridge: this collection is available in a multicolored and a unicolored variation, even if both are really creative. The bags from The Bridge of the Elba collection indeed are equipped with interchangeable strap, one made of leather and the other one made of braided fabric in different colors, perfect to change from an elegant style to a more casual and summerly one.
With the Elba collection The Bridge offers also backpacks, which nowadays can’t be missing in every collection with women’s bags, and small leather goods, all characterized by the typical elements of this collection, thus a geometrical shape (emphasized by relief seams long the borders) and the tiny laces on the front.

The Capalbio collection is characterized by the particular bright and elegant treatment of the leather, sober but lightly rounded shapes and metal details: on the front of every item indeed there is a large closure in the design of a lock made of brown metal. This circular form is placed in the middle of every bag or backpack to attire attention. Beside of the business bags and backpacks the collection also offers wallets, key chains and belts.
The name of this collection surely is not new to the lovers of The Bridge, in fact it is the most iconic collection with professional bags and briefcases of the Tuscan brand, For the upcoming season Story Uomo presents a new style, characterized by a design able to combine innovation and a refined mood with vintage elements.
