September is fashion month, and as we eagerly await the digital fashion weeks to roll out and FW20 collections to hit the stores, why not pick up some of the latest handbags of the season before anyone else? Here are our top picks:
Chloé Daria Mini Chain Bag
First seen in a larger size on the SS20 runway, the new mini size of the Daria bag by Natacha Ramsay Levi at Chloé is expertly crafted in Italy and made with a combination of a smooth leather braided handle and textured-leather for the body. Big enough to fit all your daily essentials, the pockets can also be worn opened, which reveals a retro logo lining.
We all had our eyes on JW Anderson’s cap bag from not too long ago, and he’s set to steal our hearts once again with a cross body shaped like a punching bag. Wear it across the body over a big coat when the temperature drops, or with clean line tailoring for a stark contrast.
Alessandro Michele dives deep into the house’s archives and reintroduced the Jackie bag in a mini size this season. Making its debut on the FW20 runway on both male and female models, the bag got its name “The Jackie” as it was often photographed on the arm of Jackie Kennedy herself. The bag is refreshed with an additional shoulder strap – perfect for wearing cross-body.
We’ve all come to know and love the Lady Dior bag (also, coincidentally renamed after its famous user, the late Lady Diana). The bag was originally named the Chouchou by its creator, Gianfranco Ferre in 1994, but it became synonymous to Lady Diana’s style after it was given to her in 1995 by the then-first lady of France, Bernadette Chirac. Crafted in denim and embroidered with the iconic Cannage motif, the new D-Lite is a casual refresh of the iconic bag.
Fringes are in favour this season, and this twisted intrecciato leather clutch is a must-have. Worn with a knitted dress with equally long fringes and cowboy boots, this Bottega Veneta clutch is the ultimate statement-making handbag. Crafted from the finest Italian leathers, top off a tailored look with this as a final touch for super sartorial points.
In a time where mini bags reign, it’s refreshing to see a sensibly sized bag that exudes elegance and practicality. A combination from their classic City Steamer handbag and emblematic LV trunks, the house introduces an all-new shape for fall: the All Set. Worn under the arm or by hand, this bag is equal parts function and chic.
We’ve fallen in love with Jacquemus’ too-tiny-for-anything bags, and we’re eyeing the shape in a bigger size, which can comfortably fit a smaller phone (like the Samsung Galaxy Z flip) and a card case. This suede top handle bag with an embossed croc pattern is the perfect neutral accent to any warm-weather or wooly outfit.
