The best designer handbags for the new season

From super-sized totes, bumbags and micro-pouches to timeless classics, shop our pick of the best new season designer handbags

The latest designer handbags ticking all the AW19 trends have dropped, and there’s no better time than the present to invest in one. Now I appreciate it’s a big purchase, so to save you time and effort, I’ve rounded-up the best designer handbags from the new season that suit all tastes, styles, daily needs and budgets (yes, really).

If there is one piece worthy of investment each season, it has to be a designer handbag (and if you don’t believe me, some brands like Chanel are literally a better financial investment than gold). And while many designers are on-trend with their offering, there are also some classic styles that never go out of fashion out there too.

The best arm candy for AW19 ranges from the super-sized, with the coolest carry-alls in every colour, prints and texture imaginable – to must-have micros, the cute bags that are tiny yet perfectly formed. Invest in these for minimal effort, with maximum impact – Fendi and Jacquemus have some great picks.

We’re keeping things tonal this season and investing in some pretty arm candy in earthy tones, with a touch of cream and butter yellow – Strathberry, Yuzefi and Chloé have some divine options.

If your heart is set on something a little sleeker and modern, then do check out designs by Bottega Veneta (the brand everyone’s talking about right now), LOEWE and ACNE.

You also can’t go wrong with a classic Mulberry or Stella McCartney – these beautiful bags will pay for themselves when you work out the cost per wear. For something a little more fun and retro, check out STAUD and Rixo’s bags for their fun detailing, from moc croc and PVC to shells.

Finally, if you’re feeling nostalgic, do go down the retro route with a Dior saddle bag or Fendi baguette. Iconic.
