I Swear Every Cool Person at Fashion Week Was Carrying One of These 6 Handbags

In the midst of navigating where I’m heading and where I’m off to next during fashion week, I make it a point every season to scope out the cool items that everyone is wearing, specifically looking for ones that pop up again and again. On the apparel side, there were certainly a few repeats, with big-ticket items including scarf coats, distressed leather jackets, full skirts, and anything really that feels ballet-inspired. The handbag selection, however, was by far the main event. 

Throughout fashion month, show attendees have debuted a vast array of bags, from classic shapes by the likes of Celine, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel to more on-trend silhouettes and accents like bowlers, metallics, and perhaps most prominent, surrealist styles. Knowing the brevity of the handbag moments this season, I took it upon myself to narrow down the trends I spotted most outside of weeks worth of nonstop shows, presentations, and previews this week to the six that feel most relevant and buzzy. Scroll down to see which ones made the biggest impact this season.
