Between the flow of gowns on the runways and the rush of stilettos on the pavement, I’ve kept my eye focused on one thing this Fashion Week – bags! There’s a lot to be excited about (including more than a few jeweled minaudières courtesy of Mr. de la Renta), but until we can get our hands on the latest from Spring 2014, let’s celebrate with the best from our favorite designers…
1. Marc by Marc Jacobs Get A Grip Emma Bag:Marc knows how to appeal to both our girly side and our need to be on-the-go (as well as our desire to not blow all our savings on one bag!). Get a grip on the top handle for leisurely walks through the city or throw this over your shoulder when you need to pick up the pace. On Shopbop for $458.
2. Narciso Rodriguez Leather/Suede Duffel: This army green and black combo from Narciso (a.k.a. the undisputed king of colorblocking) will satisfy our lust for richer hues and fabrics as we head into the fall chill. The suede base can take a serious beating, but I have a feeling you’ll be treating it like gold. At Barneys New York for $2,495.
3. Oscar de la Renta New Goa Crystal Clutch: The name Oscar de la Renta is synonymous with class, sophistication, and ballroom ready glam, so what better than a champagne-colored, crystal-embellished clutch to toast his stunning new collection? On Farfetch for $1,990.
