The beauty of street style lies within its innate uniqueness. In contrast to a runway collection where an overarching theme is envisioned by one designer, two women attending a show could style the exact same piece in wildly different ways. Ipso facto, street style is an eternal spring of inspiration, and if you live for a fresh styling trick or novel way to wear your accessories, the best street style bags spotted at fashion week are the place to start.
Fashion month this season was split between virtual presentations here, distanced runway shows over there, and even a few big names sitting out the ordeal altogether. This change in travel plans and schedule also impacted the street style outside the shows, with many editors and influencers taking things in from home. While some showgoers were still out in Milan and Paris, outfits were altered to accommodate face coverings and the usual crowd was noticeably smaller.
Still, the shrunken guest list didn't prevent attendees from breaking out the accessories they've been waiting for the moment to show off. Both classic silhouettes and trendier, fashion-forward styles made appearances, but if one thing dominated, it was the buzzy bags of Bottega Veneta. Ahead, digest the most covetable assortment of purses spotted on editors, influencers, and stylists alike and if you're still in need of some inspo, be sure to check out our Paris street style roundup.
