Though Paris Fashion Week is just kicking off, Fashion Month is giving us some seriously stylish handbag trends to fawn over thus far, from New York to London and Milan. Since we just can’t help ourselves when it comes to deciphering new trends, we’re here to give you a preview of what’s to come later in 2020 for the Fall and Winter season in the world of bags.
First up? The return of a classic shape that we haven’t seen in a while, the double top-handle tote. Appearing sleek and minimal in most cases with a few heritage-inspired iterations popping up, too, this trend is our top pick for your new work bag come Fall. Another major movement? Chains! Adding an edgy touch to carryalls, crossbodies, totes, and beyond, heavy-metal links are proving to be a huge trend across the board, showing up on just about everything from shoes to clothing and jewelry. Another common theme we’re seeing for the cool-weather season is vintage-inspired fashion, particularly with a sophisticated ’60s twist (think Jacqueline Kennedy). For bags, this is translating to ladylike pocketbooks à la your grandmother, from beaded iterations to supple leather and satin.
With tons of fashion shows still ahead of us for the Fall/Winter 2020 season, many more trends are guaranteed to emerge. Until then, scroll on for the four topping our list so far, and keep checking back as we continue to bring you more runway highlights from the Paris collections.
