12 Major Handbags That We’re Ready to Shop This Spring

Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut collection for Dior is finally about to drop and you can be sure that everyone will be copping a piece. From feminist t-shirts to the it-shoe of the season, the entire runway is a return to Carrie Bradshaw-level fashion, and we’re not just talking about massive ball gowns. The “J’Adore Dior” catchphrase from the early-aughts is back, splashed across a sleek new bag. Can you hear that? Street style stars worldwide are gearing up to stampede.

Loewe Hammock

Matching the backdrop from Loewe’s runway show, this new Hammock bag features a cloud print on supple leather. Dare we say the spacious design of the Hammock bag will literally be the silver lining of any outfit? Sorry we had to. Anyway, treat the playful print as a goes-with-everything neutral, and you’ll find it surprisingly easy to wear this bag on the daily.

Louis Vuitton Capucines Skyline Bag

The Louis Vuitton Capucines bag received a makeover this season, with a limited release commemorating the renovation of their SoHo store. Bespeckled in pearls and embroidered with the NYC skyline, this handmade bag will sit pretty on your shelf and in the crook of your elbow.

Saint Laurent Love Box

Anthony Vaccarello made his debut at Saint Laurent this season along some with new lust-worthy accessories: primarily the new Love Box Bag. A bag like this could easily be seen as overly saccharine, but the oblong shape and embossed croc read more Ed Gorey than Valentine’s Day.

Bottega Veneta City Knot

If Bottega Veneta’s signature woven bags aren’t for you, try their latest style instead. Structured with heavy hardware, the City Knot takes cues from the Italian house’s archives from the ’70s, including butterfly-stamped leather. And don’t worry: the intrecciato motif still makes an appearance in the form of engraved, brass hardware.

Burberry Buckle

Burberry’s iconic trench coat inspired their latest accessory, the Buckle Bag. Created in an array of colors, textures, and materials, the oversized strap and brass buckle pays homage to the coat every woman should own. And now, this is the bag every woman should own, too.

Céline Clasp

Céline knows a thing or two about creating it-handbags so it’s safe to say the Clasp is the next big thing. Picture this pared-down design on every kind of woman—we want to be the kind of person who wears the leopard-fur top handle one. The clasp bags will be available in March, so keep your eyes and wallets ready to make the leap.

Chanel Gabrielle

A Chanel 2.55 is forever, but the new Gabrielle bag is perfect for now. We suspect this one will bring on a resurgence of hobo bags, because where the hell have they been for the past decade? If you’re vying for the bag you’ll own forever (but one that isn’t seen on every street corner), look no further than this.

Fendi Kan-I

Fendi gets even more playful this season with their Kan-I bag. First presented in the brand’s Resort 2017 collection in mini form, their spring launch is slightly larger with even kookier additions. From scalloped trims to painterly stripes, the bag’s unique embellishments are a sight to see (and own).

Gucci Techpacks and The Broche

We aren’t surprised that the new Gucci techpacks are embroidered with the phrase “Modern Future”— that’s exactly what we think of Alessandro Michele’ style. Alongside their drawstring backpacks is Gucci’s new Broche bag, a step away from their classic Dionysus style. We see no end to Gucci’s aesthetic of opulent eccentricity, and to be honest, we never want to.
