While Resort 2016 shows aren't quite over yet--resort and pre-fall, unlike fall and spring, don't have designated weeks in which the shows occur--things are definitely winding down, and almost all of the major brands have shown us what they've got. We combed through dozens of shows and lookbooks, and based on what we found, we've compiled a guide to all the bags you need to know.
The biggest missing brands here are Céline, Givenchy and Coach. Both Céline and Givenchy tend to be stingy with the bags in their pre-season press materials, so we're not waiting around for them to get started, and Coach isn't doing a resort show. As it is, we had no problem finding 30 notable bags to gawk at.
My favorite of the new season so far is Balenciaga's structured buckle tote, which looks like it's made out of bicolor belts, but Michael Kors also made an impressively minimalist showing with multicolored shoulder bags that felt thoroughly modern. Check them all out below; if anything else interesting debuts, we'll be sure to let you know.
