The Best Runway Bags fo Spring 2013

Now that the dust has settled around the various global fashion weeks and we know what to expect from the most important collections for Spring 2013, well…what can we expect? The handbag trends weren’t quite as clear for the upcoming season as they have been in the recent past, but if nothing else, you should count on things getting a little more modern. Fashion as a whole has decided to pick up and head into the future, and that means that bag design is headed there as well.

After searching all the weird textiles, textures, color combinations and a few (fewer than you’d expect) straight-up leather bags, we’ve compiled a list of the 10 Best Runway Bags of Spring 2013. For this season, you won’t find any of Louis Vuitton’s 70s-hued Damier bags on our list, but you will find the triumphant return of Dior under the leadership of modernist wunderkind Raf Simons. Check out our full list below or take a look back through all of our Fashion Week coverage.

    What a winner of a bag! The white Lanvin shoulder bag pulls off a from-another-time look and manages to be very current. Plus the quality of the construction looks impeccable.
