I can't believe it's already the end of Milan Fashion Week! Paris is underway as we speak, but before we fully commit to a new city, we'd like to take a look at some of the best pieces and trends that came out of Italy for Fall 2013. Both fur and exotics are still going strong, and you might want to look for pieces in bright red and cyan to hit stores six months from now. It's too early to start shopping, though, so let's take a look at the best runway bags Milan Fall 2013 had to offer.
Most of Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 2013 handbags were heavily detailed, but the best pieces of the bunch were quietly elegant, like this one in red python.
This Dolce & Gabbana evening bag was much more indicative of the collection's direction, and in such a glamourous, old-world way.
The bags in Marni Fall 2013 were more minimal than they have been lately, but there were still a couple embellished pieces to be found, like this beaded clutch.
Armani is known for his spectacular red carpet wear, and this fringe-covered clutch is certainly worthy of such a moment.
Blumarine is right on top of one of the season's biggest trends - fur.
Etro makes beautiful, exceptionally detailed clothes and accessories, and I could stare at the woven pattern of this bag forever.
This Fendi 2Jours Bag is easily my favorite of the season so far - the color combination, fur and shape are all perfect.
What's Emilio Pucci without a print?
For fall, Roberto Cavalli has toned some things down to beautiful effect - why don't more brands do printed leather?
If you want neutrality, luxury and functionality, you could do much worse than this Missoni bag.
We also saw a great cage clutch at London Fashion Week - with this Roberto Cavalli version, we only need one more to make a trend.
Ferragamo is always a reliable source of luxe modernity, and this trim crocodile bag is just the latest example.
It's hard to beat lucius blue Gucci crocodile in a heritage shape.
Armani isn't known for his bags, but this red croc stunner deserves some attention.
