Begone, summer’s tattered unstructured sacks and splintered straw carryalls! Now that fall is afoot, opt for a statement bag that will refresh your wardrobe—one inspired by those catching the street style cameras. For an everyday, polished piece, try the elegant black Ratio et Motus top handle or Balenciaga’s Triangle purse in royal blue. Feeling bold? A sweet, candy red angular tote by Italian label Medea will hold anything from a laptop to a portfolio with cool to spare, while a cotton candy pink JW Anderson lady bag offers up some sass thanks to its pierced hardware.
And solid hues are just the beginning. Cesta Collective’s fun checkerboard piece comes in the silhouette of a cheerful lunch pail, while Boyy’s mixed media bag is a festive melange of raffia, leather, and PVC. And if you’re looking to keep those airy summer vibes alive throughout the fall, Cult Gaia’s acrylic Ark bag is a sure bet.
