Shop: Bags

Fall’s best bags go way beyond basic. Texture is a huge theme this season, manifesting itself in graphic lizard skin and fluffy fur. The big silhouette to know is the box bag, seen on runways from Louis Vuitton and Chanel, and shoppable from retailers like ASOS and Topshop.


Disclaimer: This is not your practical bag, this is your fun bag. With that out of the way, enjoy mink, shearling, and faux spins on the fluffy style.

Try one of these structured styles for day. Our selects are big enough to fit the essentials (but might force you to offload some unnecessary extras) and just dressy enough to take out too.

Reptilian bags got a very modern makeover for fall. The texture, whether real or faux, appears on classics, like the crossbody below, as well as on cool, less-expected shapes (that lunch bag style!), and in wild color combinations.
