We’re entering that ambiguous time of the year where a fashion season transitions to another (Spring to Fall, or Spring to Pre-Fall), while two others are being presented simultaneously (Cruise is happening and Pre-Fall lookbooks are beginning to drop). As new sartorial offerings start to trickle into stores, new bag selections are too.

But whatever season it is — Spring, Pre-Fall or Fall — the latest roster of arm candies is looking mighty fine. Whether it’s the next It-bucket bag or the anti-It bag, you may just discover your new bag obsession here.

1
Louis Vuitton New Wave bag

Like its namesake musical genre, the newcomer is a distinct offbeat addition. Furnished with rippling quilts and a zany rainbow “Vuitton” typeface silk-screened onto the top handle, the cheeky New Wave is a far cry from the maison’s stable of savoir-faire classics, but of which fans of the brand shall giddily welcome. It comes in different sizes with an adjustable, removable chain.

Available in July.

Burberry Pin clutch

Many would know of Burberry’s iconic tartan plaid, but not so much its kilt pin. They will soon, though: Pre-Fall 2018’s brand new clutch has a super-sized version of the archival Scottish fastening as its main attraction.

Available in stores now.

Jacquemus Le Sac Maracasau bucket bag

May the bucket bag live on. Regardless of season, Jacquemus’ rendition of the summer staple is on the fast track to becoming a cult item akin to its Rihanna-approved Chiquita mini bag. This one is fitted with a wooden bead-embellished macramé net which can be entirely removed, depending on the order of the day.

Available here.

Chloé Roy bucket bag

Also at Chloé, the bucket silhouette is hybridised with the label’s Roy bag: Ornamental hoops at the sides and the extra chain handle to be looped around your fingers for added oomph.

Available in stores now.

Céline Made in Italy cabas

Taking to the design codes of origami, the Made In Italy tote is a tamer follow-up to its obtrusive, see-through shopper bag. Still, this logomanic cabas screams Céline as much as its predecessor did.

Available in stores now.

Loewe Gate saddle bag

When Jonathan Anderson introduced the Gate bag on his Spring 2018 runway, never once was the strap slung over the shoulder of its wearer. It was always casually carried, as if scooped at the last minute. Practicality, inspired by the form of a saddle, sits at the core of the design. The Gate bag comes in two sizes and three types of calfskin.

Available in stores now.
