Now that it’s August, practically all the bags available for purchase online are from pre-fall or fall. With stores flush with new products and designers churning out more and more exotic bags every season, we wondered how how the highest of high-end bags compared to last season’s crop.

Here’s Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, shopping, strolling, and trying not to trip over semi-feral cats in LA, all while carrying a white Victoria Beckham Quincy Tote. Rosie has almost exclusively carried Saint Laurent and Givenchy bags this year, so a Victoria Beckham tote is a bit of a departure for her, brand-wise.

Don’t let the end of sale season get you down – we’ve scoured the Internet, including a few of our international favorites, to find the best, most tempting accessories the web has to offer.
