Givenchy-Fall-2016-Bags-4

Givenchy very rarely uses handbags on its runways, but I’m glad I checked in on its Fall 2016 runway show just in case. The brand featured just one new bag style in several different crocodile colors, and if Riccardo Tisci is willing to put it front and center on one of Givenchy’s biggest days of the year, you can be that you’re about to see this bag everywhere.

I’ve been covering the accessories industry for long enough that I don’t often look at a collection of handbags from a major brand and wonder who buys them–even if I personally hate it, I can almost always imagine who the consumer for a particular bag would be.

Chanel-Fall-2016-Bags-16

Just when you think Karl Lagerfeld is going to zig, he zags. The legendary creative director has spent half a decade showing his Chanel collections in ever-more-grandiose stage settings in the Grand Palais, ranging from an arctic tundra complete with trucked-in iceberg chunk to a Chanel-themed supermarket filled with branded items that weren’t even part of the collection.

Celeb-Designer-Bags-March-9
Celebrity Style

Celebs are over the moon for totes, and they’re carrying everything from ye olde favorites (I mean the Céline Luggage Tote, of course), to gargantuan Hermès bags that threaten to engulf their carriers, to svelte Michael Kors totes that are actually a riff on a Michael Kors style that was immensely popular circa 2014.

Dior Diorever Bag (1)

While some brands rely on churning out what seems like hundreds of different designs each season, Dior sticks to quality over quantity. Over the past seveal years, Dior has slowly but surely created some of its most sought-after bags, including the Diorama Bag, Be Dior Bag and Dune Bag.

Balenciaga is one of the many brands that’s had turnover at the top of its creative hierarchy recently, but unlike Dior and Raf Simons or Lanvin and Alber Elbaz, the brand was quick to name Alexander Wang‘s successor: Demna Gvasalia, a Louis Vuitton designer during both the Marc Jacobs and Nicolas Ghesquiere eras and one of the founders of obsessed-over Parisian indie brand Vetements.

Dior-Fall-2016-Bags
Christian Dior

Interim studio design teams, like the one leading Dior until the brand decides on a replacement following Raf Simons’ departure, are in a precarious position. They’re charged with keeping the house running and keeping customers interested, but they can’t do anything too audacious or interesting, lest costumers get irritated when a new creative director arrives and the slate is wiped clean.

Loewe-Fall-2016-Bags-15

It’s not every day that Vogue dubs a brand “the avant-garde competitor of Hermès,” but that’s exactly what the magazine said of the Loewe Fall 2016 show in Paris on Friday. Based on the collection photos and the brand’s work under Jonathan Anderson so far, there’s a compelling case that the magazine is right.

The hottest color of the week technically isn’t a color at all. Several celebs were drawn to bright white handbags this week, and a new handbag from Tod’s continues to make waves with LA celebs. (I’m sorry.
