Fall is a nice time to try out some statement pieces, and fashion handbags are a great place to start. This season, we saw some really neat handbags on designer runways. Why not try adding a few of them—or a few similar, yet more affordable varieties—into your fall wardrobe rotation? After all, you can never have too many fashion handbags in your personal collection. Let’s delve into a few of our favorite highlights.
1. Bright, Unexpected Colors
Fall is typically associated with rich, warm colors like burgundy, brown, deep orange, and crimson red. However, you don’t have to stick to the typical color scheme—take this opportunity to go for something bold. Yves Saint Laurent’s collection featured some glittery hot-pink bags this year, and Dior and Diane Von Furstenberg created some interesting blue purses that are reminiscent of a beachside summer filled with romance. Both options are a perfect way to go so that you can set yourself apart from the rest. Fall may be for relaxation, but it’s your time to shine!
2. Luggage-Style Purses
The classic look of Louis Vuitton “trunk luggage” has always been popular, and at Nicolas Ghesquière’s first major show for the house, the concept was put to use on much smaller handbags. These boxy little purses are about the size of a small clutch, but they come with a strap for easy carrying. If you’re an elegant lady who is interested in the laidback comfort of fall, Louis Vuitton’s classic colors are perfect for this season.
3. Supermarket Basket Handbags
This trend is certainly new, and while its practicality is debatable, it’s undoubtedly interesting. Chanel debuted the look during the fall runway shows, and it is quickly becoming popular all around the globe. The baskets, which look like fancier versions of hand-held grocery baskets, often have a smaller purse that sits on the inside, although some are simply baskets. This doesn’t really work for a night out on the town, but they are undoubtedly great for a day at the beach.
4. Simple Bags Made From Luxurious Materials
The Balenciaga fall collection featured some patent-leather bags that looked very similar to typical shopping bags. They come in fine patent-leather, or soft calfskin, with palladium hardware and gold plating. The look is simple, but the bags are plenty roomy and work with a number of different styles.
5. Drawstring Bags
I absolutely love the new fall line from Etro, which includes some pretty drawstring bags. These purses, which are made from one-hundred percent lambskin, come in a number of different patterns and colors. My favorite is the botanical-paisley design. It’s about the size of a small backpack and has a beautiful purple fabric lining the inside.
