The Loewe Puzzle bag has been at the top of people's wishlists for years now and continues to be one of the brands most iconic pieces. The latest evolution of the range is the roomy and versatile Puzzle Fold Tote. The Tote has been launched in two sizes and some core colours like black, tan and mustard all with the AW season in mind. The real selling point of the style though is its ability to fold completely flat because of the panels that make up the body of the bag.
Fendi always seem to wow with their accessories and the last pieces we saw launched on the Milan catwalk for the upcoming season have been hotly anticipated. The Fendi First range has expanded with the First Sight mini bag and now the Nano Bag F which both show off the abstract F hardware. If your hearts set on a mini bag this year but one that packs a statement punch, then the Nano Bag F that can be worn alone or attached to another Fendi bag is set to be huge for the brand and you.
Swiss brand Akris know how to create amazing luxury and their bags are a beautiful representation of just that. Their Ai Shoulder bag has been born with versatility in mind without compromised the chicness of the piece. The newest colourways include a smooth raffia and leather colour pop trims. Fold the tote corners inside for a classic look, outside for a layered structured look or wear open for a classic thin strap hold all tote.
It's not often that when you think of it bags Louis Vuitton haven't created a number of them every year. This season it's the simplicity of the Sac Sport Bag that's becoming an icon and it goes to show that sometimes the simple styles can be the best to invest in. With embossed brand logos across grained leather, the single adjustable strap and recognisable gold hardware, the Sac Sport feels easy to style with so many looks. The core of what an it bag should be.
And of course no talk of it bags is complete without taking a look at what the newest Bulgari style is that's capturing hearts. With the 75th anniversary of Serpenti this year, the newest member of the Serpenti family feels even more special. The newest addition is the Baia Shoulder Bag and it feels perfectly proportioned to join you on any number of occasions. The classic shoulder style feels a little retro but the chain straps that can adjust to single, double layer or long length feel modern by contrast.
