Handbag Designs

2015 was the year of It-bag overload– hello, Loewe’s Puzzle bag, Chloé’s saddlebag, and all Gucci everything. Now, we’re not dissing these much-loved labels (in fact, they’ll always have a place in our hearts) but if Mansur Gavriel’s astronomic rise to popularity is any indication, people are looking for something more. Options that aren’t attached to a major fashion houses, but also deserve some major attention. And that’s where we come in. We’re less than six months into 2016 and have already found a new flock of accessory designers to love. From a cult-favorite fragrance line’s new leather goods to the designer behind the Mulberry Bayswater starting anew, here are eight new handbag brands keep on your radar.
