Think structured shapes, sleek hardware and a rainbow of hues to complement every item in your winter wardrobe and beyond. After all, you’ll need a fabulous bag for carrying around that empty wallet.
The new 'RK40' bag (named for the address of the brand's NYC atelier) boasts a lightweight design and supple French leather. The classic, roomy shape is ideal for traveling and running everyday errands. We also love that it comes in an array of bold hues.
Epitomizing Alexander Wang's aesthetic (the brand's creative director since 2013), this tote incorporates a bold industrial accent by way of a cable handle.
Small Jamie Doctor Bag in Black Croc
Tyler Ellis launched her brand with the goal of creating items that could be passed down through generations. This bag is a shining example of her design prowess, boasting a cobalt lining, hefty gold hardware and incredible crocodile skin. Our future daughters will likely borrow this one and forget to return it.
Madeline PM Bag
Belgium-based Delvaux is the oldest luxury leather house in the world (they launched in 1829), so they know a thing or two about beautiful bags. We adore the stingray panel on this crisp shoulder style.
Mini Scottie Satchel
You can see the brand's luggage heritage in most of its highly coveted silhouettes, which is exactly why we we've fallen for the softened shape and blush hue of this bag. It's a feminine take on their signature style.
Snakeskin Obsedia Clutch
This slim statement clutch comes with a cross-body strap, which means it can take you everywhere from a music festival to a black-tie dinner.
Alexander McQueen's newest style is called the Legend, a fitting moniker since it combines style and functionality like few others (read: swoon-worthy leather, barely there metal detailing, hefty shoulder strap and an extra-wide opening).
Elle Medium Clutch with Chain
We're drooling over Chloe's new collection of Elle clutches, which add a dose of luxe femininity to virtually any outfit care of skinny gold chain straps and cheery hues.
Ferragamo's Fiamma bag combines a classic bowling shape with intricate details. This warm camel shade adds classic glamour to jeans and a chunky sweater.
