Whether you’re after something bold or understated, this season there’s a new handbag for every style, and today’s most stylish influencers are wasting no time in showing off the best and most covetable designer finds. From a vibrant woven Bottega Veneta clutch to a Prada take on the classic raffia beach tote, explore the new must-have It bags you’ll increasingly see populating your Instagram feed this season.
Follow in Camille Charriere’s chic steps and opt for understated Parisian glamour with Celine’s latest style. The Cuir Triomphe shoulder bag is cut from the softest leather, with a weighty gold chain and deliciously understated embossed logo closure in place of the traditional metal style. Fresh off the runway, new colourways will land soon, including a Spring-worthy canary yellow.
Perfect for upgrading your beachwear or for running city errands, as demonstrated by Rosie Huntington-Whitley, Prada’s logo-embossed raffia tote is a lesson in branded bags — a big trend on the SS22 runways.
Jodie Mini Intrecciato Clutch Bag
In place of a logo, Bottega Veneta’s intrecciato woven leather treatment is the brand’s signature, utilised in an array of styles that continue to appear on and off the runway. The latest iteration that’s been popping up in street style pictures and Instagrams galore is the Mini Jodie in electric green — a brilliant pop of colour for welcoming in the Springtime sun.
Bamboo 1947 Mini Top Handle Bag
Gucci’s Florentine artisans first designed the Bamboo style in 1947, when traditional materials were difficult to find post-war and the lightweight, durable bamboo was discovered to be a perfect material for the handle, forging an iconic signature. The fashion staple has been worn by a long list of celebrities in the last 75 years, including Princess Diana and Elizabeth Taylor. This season, the classic style is updated with new small and mini sizes and a new suite of colours that keeps the bag contemporary yet timeless.
Fendigraphy Small Bag
Logomania continues to be a dominant theme for SS22, and Fendi is never one to do things by half. The crescent moon shape bag can be slung across the shoulder to reveal huge, vintage gold lettering across the base. A statement piece for those who wear their brands with pride.
Miu Wander Matelassé Regenerated Nylon Hobo Bag
A cheering bag for more reasons than one. The Miu Wanderer comes in a rainbow of Spring shades, from mint green to sunny yellow, and is made from regenerated nylon produced from plastics salvaged from the ocean — the definition of style with substance.
Solferino Cross-Body Bag
With an elegantly curved silhouette and statement metal logo clasp, the Solferino is a recent addition to the French fashion house’s line-up, and comes in a range of soft hues to complement every season’s wardrobe.
British pop star Dua Lipa recently debuted the latest colourful JW Anderson bag, fresh off the runway. The bumper bag , which first made its debut in September 2021 in a campaign shot by Juergen Teller, will shortly be released in half-moon, baguette and hobo shapes, all with the signature colour-blocking with contrasting piping in bold hues.
The go-to bag of model and Celine girl, Kaia Gerber, the Ava bag is a minimalist’s dream. Cut from leather and lined in suede, this season the French fashion house has reimagined the style with a gold buckle detail on the strap. Available in olive green and soft brown, the earthy tones of the crescent moon shape make it a perfect transitional accessory.
