Whether you’re into bucket bags, oversized totes or cute clutches, there’s something for every style and occasion.
Spring/Summer 2020 collections are dropping in stores hot, which can only mean one thing: time to shop!
The bag department has been catching our attention with new designs, sizes (cue the micro bag trend) and silhouettes that command attention whether paired with everyday outfits or glam attire. Whether you’re into bucket bags, oversized totes or cute clutches, there’s something for every style and occasion.
Take a look at our top picks from the likes of Fendi, Versace and Longchamp to cop for the new season.
Louis Vuitton Vanity Monogram
It’s hard to pick just one bag from Louis Vuitton’s desirable SS20 collection (the cool new Video Cassette Clutch and versatile Blade bag being runner-ups), but this cute Vanity Monogram bag has to be our favourite new model for its chic, vanity case-inpsired design and iconic monogram canvas.
Fendi Pico Baguette
If you can’t get enough of the micro bag trend, Fendi is taking things two steps smaller with the Pico Baguette. Launching in just 4cm by 4cm, the latest addition to the Baguette family comes in a range of colours and patterns, including micro and macro beads with embroideries and/or fringe details.
Since the Fall/Winter 2019 season, the Versace Virtus bag has charmed celebrities and fashion icons alike from Priyanka Jonas to Awkwafina. This season, the iconic leather bag – defined by the central gold-tone metal Barocco letter V – is available in new colours to celebrate spring, including these pink quilted versions.
Been looking for a new clutch for your dinner parties? Chanel’s lambskin and metallic goatskin clutch makes a classy option to glam up any look.
Longchamp’s mini bags were spotted on fashion influencers the likes of Coco Rocha, Molly Chiang and Juwei Teoh at the brand’s recent NYFW show, so we can’t help but to want one for ourselves. The Roseau model is especially popular for its understated elegance, making it an ideal everyday bag.
Loewe Balloon Bag
Crafted from two kinds of leather – a round structured base of robust calfskin with soft napa calfskin on the inside – the Balloon bag is a definite must-have from Loewe this season. It is available in taupe, vintage khaki, soft white and more and comes in three different sizes: small, medium and large, with the latter two coming with a pair of straps for versatile styling.
Furla 1927 Mini Crossbody
Furla is playing up the spring vibes this season with fun colours and tassel details introduced for its iconic 1927 collection. The mini crossbody version also features a full leather strap and the brand’s new logo.
MCM Mini Patricia Mini Shoulder Bag in Visetos
Meet the new mini Patricia bag that combines MCM’s heritage in luxury with a Bauhaus-inspired design to embody the aesthetic of the brand. Completed with a sleek Laurel Lock closure, it boasts a modern appeal that is sure to stand out on the high fashion streets.
Christian Louboutin Elisa
Belt bags are still in – Christian Louboutin’s Elisa is proof. Named after the designer’s muse, multi-faceted model, actress and social entrepreneur Elisa Sednaoui, the Elisa bag draws inspiration from ancient Egypt and its hieroglyphs, as translated into the bag’s architecture and twist lock clasp.
Some bags follow trends, some bags surpass them. The Coach Hutton promises to be the latter with its timeless structural shape that comes in a variety of materials and colours, including the brand’s signature canvas, colourblock hues and sophisticated quilting. JLo approves, and we do, too.
Tod’s Monogram Handbag
Launching with the brand’s new T logo which stands for tradition, timeless, talent and obviously, Tod’s, this crossbody bag is the archetype of those values with its mixed canvas and leather materials. While celebrating the brand’s heritage of Italian craftsmanship, it also presents a unique, contemporary and functional design that’s quintessentially Tod’s.
