If you’ve kept an eye on the latest runway collections, then you know that glitzy jewellery and party-ready clothing is the status quo for the new season. But when it comes to handbags, practicality is king (perhaps it’s the lingering effects of the pandemic). We’re seeing tiny going-out bags that are still as relevant as ever rub elbows with more functional styles now, like extra-large totes and chic, low-slung messenger bags (looking at you, Peter Do), and we’re not mad at it.

Of course, practical doesn’t mean basic with this new batch of power bags. Proenza Schouler proves that point with its compact, front-flap bag that’s perfectly suited for the everyday but has the power to dress up every look in your wardrobe. Risk-takers will appreciate the runways’ maximalist approach to layering, which sees its models sport not one, but two or even three bags on their person.
If handbags aren’t really your thing, well, there’s a spring trend for that too. Enter: the rise of the bag-less purse. Designers have cracked the code on how to go hands free in style with more discreet options including a pocketbook necklace and a kitschy coin purse that hitches a ride on your belt. The bottom line: There’s something here for everyone. So to get ahead of the masses, scroll on for the most notable handbag trends that are bound to be everywhere next spring.
