We love the Anya Hindmarch and Moschino bags with fun characters, and we really love the Fendi monsters, but the line has been crossed. You can only take this cute-bag stuff so far. Pushing the envelope ever so much fills you with feelings of whimsical joy.

Miu Miu Madras Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag: Fly Off the Handle

I can’t handle this handle – it’s so fantastic! Reminiscent of retro satchels and briefcases, the Madras is a grown-up move for Miu Miu, and it’s a turn that is entirely welcomed. Especially as we look ahead to the fall season, which always calls for more polish and structure.

Kiss me, Prada! Their latest statement-making patterns prove that lips – and lipstick – can look shockingly hip. Irreverent? Absolutely. Exciting? Yes, indeed. Unexpected? Well, that’s almost always to be expected from Miuccia.

Chloé Georgia Mini Leather Shoulder Bag

Chloé Georgia Mini Leather Shoulder Bag: Twin Peaks

I have always loved the construction of Chloé bags, and while they’ve been on a recent roll this year, this may just be the best yet. The Georgia is an updated saddle style, a refined equestrian bag, if you will.

The Row Multi-Pouch Shoulder Bag

The Row Multi-Pouch Shoulder Bag: The Beauty of the Basic

A minimalist bag packed with function to spare! While this shoulder style from the Olsen sisters may look simple enough, it actually has a lot going on. There’s a center zip pouch, as well as pockets on both sides, one of which hides a handy little travel mirror.

Top 5 Bejeweled Basic Bags: Crown Jewels
