Belt bags are still in this season, sharing the spotlight with always-in-style clutches, crossbody bags and totes.
Spring/Summer 2019 collections have officially arrived in stores and the bag department, in particular, is one area that is receiving numerous updates.
Belt bags are still in this season, sharing the spotlight with always-in-style clutches, crossbody bags and totes. Logomania continues to colour some of the latest additions too, whether in the form of monogram clasps or emblazoned all over.
Check out seven of our top picks to add to your closet, as spotted on celebrities and fashion influencers below.
Chloe C mini
Chloe must be doing something right because we’re seeing the C mini on all our favourite fashion influencers, from Aimee Song to Camila Coelho. We love the understated take on the logomania trend that’s still going on, while the extra shoulder strap adds to its versatility. The bag is available in a range of colours and finishes, but this green one is a clear standout. W chloe.com
Anya Hindmarch Neeson
Ever since The Weave Project was initiated, we have been spotting the quirky, customisable Neeson collection on our fashion feeds. It features intricately hand-woven leather and a signature bow, updated from one of the brand’s most recognisable designs. Available in tote or cross-body designs, each can be personalised with woven initials or motifs online and selected stores. W anyahindmarch.com

Bottega Veneta The Pouch
This oversized clutch is one of the first two designs by Daniel Lee, the new creative director of the fashion house. And it has already got the nod of approval from Salma Hayek, among other stars. The soft folds and voluminous shape of the bag is complemented by three different finishes, including the Velvet Calf Intrecciato which incorporates the signature intrecciato weave; Butter Calf which uses smooth leather; and Coco Souple which uses soft crocodile leather.

Burberry TB bag
You can tell that Riccardo Tisci is very proud of his new monogram for Burberry judging from how often you see it defining a collection or flagship store. The TB Bag we first saw from the SS19 runway is one evidence in which the Peter Saville-designed monogram forms the metallic clasp on the flap. Just launched on the website and in stores, the collection includes belt bag, crossbody and clutch designs in a myriad of sizes and colours. W burberry.com
We called it, and celebrities and style influencers have proven us right. The Fendi Baguette is definitely an it bag of the season as stars like Gigi Hadid and Sarah Jessica Parker exemplify. Its iconic rectangular outline and distinguishable double F logo clasp set it apart from the perennial totes or crossbody bags of today. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that there’s so many colour options and fabric finishes to choose from! W fendi.com
Salvatore Ferragamo Gancini
Gancini is the keyword at Salvatore Ferragamo all spring, with the newly reinterpreted symbol brandished across the season’s ready-to-wear, accesorries, bags and shoes. Industry influencers like Diet Prada and Susie Bubble sported the collection in a special campaign shot by Bryan Boy in January (see above). In the bag category, the instantly identifiable double hook logo highlights the brand’s signature Studio collection as well as a flap bag, bucket bag and camera bag. W ferragamo.com
One of the most popular bags of 2018 (the Dior Book Tote was a close competitor) stays on the hot list for spring with new Oblique canvas, embroidery and pastel additions to add to your wardrobe. The Saddle also comes in an irresistible belt bag design this season, which can be accompanied with a detachable shoulder strap for versatility. We’re absolutely in love with the blush powder version spotted on Caroline Daur! W dior.com
