Today marks the beginning of what we call PurseBlog Summer Break, in which the team takes a few days to relax before fall kicks into high gear and we all run around like crazy people at New York Fashion Week. That means you won’t see quite as many new posts per day as you normally do, but we’ve got some fun stuff in store for you nonetheless.
Right now seems like as good a time as any to do a heat check on what’s happening with the handbag market. As you’re gearing up for fall and planning your purchases, keep the ten bags below in mind if you’re looking for something very of-the-moment. Which bag is at the top of your list?
Chloé Drew Bag
$1,650 via Net-a-Porter
Right now, the Chloé Drew has the most momentum of any bag on the premier designer market. Whether Chloé can sustain that for the immediate future with new colors and embellishments will be the real test.
Chanel Boy Bag
Fendi Peekaboo Bag
$1,550 via Nordstrom
Love it or hate it, the tiny version of the Peekaboo launched an entire genre of bags and sells briskly in a rainbow of colors.
Christian Dior Diorama Bag
The Diorama was exactly the kind of bag Dior needed in order to woo a more casual, less ladylike (and therefore broader) audience, and so far, it’s been wildly successful.
Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag
$1,195 via Barneys
Many industry watchers were curious to see whether or not Mansur Gavriel would hit a sophomore slump with their follow-up to the enormously popular Bucket Bag, but the new Lady Bag is shaping up to be just as popular (and just as impossible to find).
