The Chanel 19 bag was the latest development of Karl Lagerfeld and was presented without him at the fall-winter 2019/20 collection show. Since then, Kaiser's successor, Virginie Viard, has been “dressing up” the model, whose name symbolizes the year of creation, in tweed, denim, jersey, cotton canvas and soft lamb skin. The only thing that remains unchanged is the chain, intertwined with leather and moving from silver to vintage gold, as well as the lock in the form of the historic monogram of the French house. The novelty of the spring-summer collection is Chanel 19 made of silk with a print, in which you can see the roofs of Parisian houses.

Dior Lady D-Lite
The famous Lady Dior also dressed up for spring: now the bag is presented in a plain canvas with a delicate embroidered cannage pattern. This is a traditional element of the French brand: at every show in the hall of the mansion on Avenue Montaigne, Christian Dior exhibited elegant chairs in the style of Napoleon III, the seats of which were decorated with just this weaving. To keep it on the bag today as long as possible, a special protective coating is applied on top. But this is not the only technological moment: although the debutante completely copies the Lady Dior style (the architectural form, wide handles, a removable strap, as well as metal pendants have been preserved), it serves as its lightweight version. Hence the new name of the model - Lady D-Lite. And by the way, it can be personalized at exclusive brand events.

Louis Vuitton Neonoe Escale
The Noe model appeared in 1932 in response to an order for Louis Vuitton from one of the champagne producers: he asked for a stylish and durable bag to carry five bottles of sparkling wine. Since then, Noe has wandered from season to season, changing its appearance in accordance with the style of the entire collection. For example, she received a gray-beige checkered canvas, stripes in the form of seals, palms and airplanes, or embossed leather with contrasting trim.
This spring, the design of the bag refers to the ancient Japanese technique of shibori knot dyeing. Like other flagship Louis Vuitton models Neverfull, Keepall and Speedy, the Neonoe (the neo prefix reflects the transformation from a historic tote bag into an ultramodern shopping bag) has highly artistic stains in blue and blue, combined with the brand's iconic pattern. It is important that, despite all the transformations of the bag, five bottles of sparkling wine can still be carried in it. What is not a reason to opt for buying it?

Gucci 1955 Horsebit
Alessandro Michele brought back to life one of the most famous Gucci handbags of the middle of the last century - the 1955 Horsebit. Its distinguishing feature is the vintage buckle in the shape of a horse bit, which refers to the history of the Italian fashion house, namely, to the popularity of its products among riders.
The bag returned in several variations: from the cross-body with the signature GG Supreme pattern, which appeared at the Gucci cruise collection show, to the dome-shaped model, which debuted at the spring / summer 2020 show. 'Boutique' and 'Gucci Orgazmique' lettering. This element made them the real stars of the advertising campaign, which was directed by the director of the films "Lobster", "Fang" and "Favorite" Yorgos Lanthimos for the brand.

American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour called bucket bags one of the most important accessories of this season. But it seems to us that thanks to their spaciousness, functionality and architectural minimalist design, they will be popular from now on and always - just look at the version from Prada. The 2020 debutante features a calfskin body, nappa leather lining and a woven handle at the top and a rope knot at the base. Inside it, for better preservation of the contents, another bag is hidden, which can be pulled out to put on the bottom, for example, a bouquet of flowers. This demonstration of the power of one's own vision, decisions and style over fashion has become the leitmotif of the entire ready-to-wear collection. In addition to the leather bucket bag, it includes similar forms of raffia, cotton and satin.

Miuccia Prada takes a responsible approach even to the creation of such a seemingly simple thing as a string bag. Miu Miu's craftsmen work on each piece over the course of one day, meticulously cutting the lambskin into small strips, hand-weaving them into a macrame mesh and carefully sewing on the brand's new logo, designed in collaboration with the Paris-based agency M / M. It's a pity to go with such a string bag for groceries, but to parties or meetings with partners is just right: there is an additional closed compartment inside for this, in which you can put a laptop, glasses in a case and a cosmetic bag.

Similar technology has been used to reinterpret the classic Fendi Peekaboo bag. Only braided knots are located so close to each other that the contents of the bag are still hidden from prying eyes, which means that they do not need a special closed compartment. The accessory came in three sizes, in shades from chocolate to candy pink, as well as in soft leather and eco-friendly raffia. It is a natural, strong, elastic and durable material, which corresponds to the general idea of Fendi's spring / summer women's and men's collections - gardening as the best way to while away the time (especially in quarantine).

Bottega veneta chain pouch
The dumpling, prepared by the creative director of Bottega Veneta Daniel Lee for fans of convenience, quality, monochromatic design and fancy shapes, has got a chain handle. Prior to that, owners of the most Instagram-intensive bag of 2019 wore it under their arms or holding onto a magnetic frame lock hidden under the deep upper folds. The peculiarity of the new element is that master jewelers were involved in the process of its production. They manually sculpted all the links of the chain, and later connected them together and polished. Hailey Bieber, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Karin Teigl and other influencers around the world have already appreciated the jewelery approach, demonstrating a new way to wear Bottega Veneta Pouch - on the crotch of the elbow, on the shoulder and even on the back.

Guirlande de cartier
Guirlande de Cartier bags follow the design of the French house's signature box, in which lucky women have been receiving jewelry for over a century. Each model has a similar octagonal shape, accentuated by a golden garland pattern, and is also finished in the brand's traditional black, dark green and dark red colors.
This season, for the first time in the Guirlande de Cartier collection, a bag is not rounded, but rectangular, resembling a wallet in shape, and with a detachable braided chain instead of the usual leather handle. The chain gives the bag the status of an evening bag, but at the same time retains its everyday functionality: inside there is a compartment with a zipper, three flat pockets, six compartments for credit cards and a pocket with an inscription and a branded mirror.

Alexander McQueen The Story
Sarah Burton's team is great at telling stories through the collections - about factories in West Yorkshire, about paleontologist Mary Anning or about the work of Alexander McQueen, which still excites the world. One of them is a clutch with a knuckle-duster handle in the shape of skulls, which the new creative director of the British brand is constantly reworking and modernizing. Thus, the premiere bag The Story retained the idea, but lowered the avant-garde tone: the method of wearing on the back of the hand is provided by a now minimalist curly handle attached to the lid.

In addition to the ultra-modern hobo shape, the Chloé Darryl bag has an unusual decor: it is framed by a leather chain strap along its contour. One of the links adorns the gold-tone ring, a feature found on many of Chloé's accessories today. And this is perhaps the only catchy element: creative director Natasha Ramsey-Levy has abandoned the lettering on the lid, like the bestseller of 2019 - C, and large branding, like the models Abylock, Roy and Vick. The fact that Darryl belongs to Chloé is indicated only by a small inscription at the top, which emphasizes the overall laconicism of the bag.

Etro Pegaso bag
This spring, the Etro Pegaso bag, a remake of the iconic bag from the 1980s and first shown at the Fall / Winter 2019/20 fashion show, comes in leather and bold, spirit-lifting colors. However, the main model in the “winged” line remains the one made of paisley-patterned canvas, treated with a special rubber coating and echoing the calfskin trim. The bag features a metal buckle with the Pegasus silhouette that has been a symbol of the brand since its founding in 1968. According to Gerolamo Etro, the mythical horse represents beauty, creativity and positive energy.

Dolce & gabbana devotion
The Dolce & Gabbana Devotion bag is already familiar to fans of the Italian brand for its expressive Cuore Sacro buckle, made in the shape of a heart. It is created by hand using the old jewelry casting technique: first, the heart is made of wax and a casting mold is created around it, and then molten brass is sent to this mold, displacing the wax. In one of the final stages, the heart is decorated with leaves, a bow, the brand's monogram, baroque monograms and miniature mother-of-pearls. At the same time, the bag itself remains minimalistic, made of nappa leather or alligator leather, but there are also more spectacular examples. So, this season a model with a scattering of sparkling white crystals has joined the main collection of Dolce & Gabbana Devotion.

Bvlgari serpenti cabochon
Bvlgari Serpenti Cabochon bags also have a recognizable detail, and more than one. It features a gold-plated brass snake head clasp, a nod to the house's historic jewelery, and a tilting quilted finish that resembles a signature cabochon cut. But the design, brilliant in every sense, is not the only reason to get this particular bag: Bvlgari Serpenti Cabochon has a built-in chip that opens access to information on materials, production process, release date and certificate of authenticity of the accessory. As Jean-Christophe Babin, CEO of Bvlgari, told, “in fact, it is an antenna that is activated through a smartphone,” the chip itself is not visible to an outsider's eye.

Valentino garavani supervee
The Valentino SuperVee spring / summer collection bag lives up to its name. The antique gold VLogo metal buckle on the flap of the bag is super large, super spectacular and super functional - you can hang a scarf, key chain or another smaller bag on it. This is the only exaggerated element in the design of the accessory: it itself turned out to be ascetic, with smooth lines and matte leather.

Giorgio Armani La Prima
In Moscow, the La Prima bag was presented in autumn, and on a grand scale. Kate Moss flew to the accessory's launch event, starring in all the new advertising campaigns for Giorgio Armani. However, the history of the bag is much richer: La Prima is a remake of the 1955 model, the first experiment in the synthesis of functionality, spaciousness and elegant design. The reissued model retains all these qualities, but gives the customers of the new generation a choice: the bag is available not only in embossed palmellato leather with a matte sheen, but also in durable alligator leather.

Principe di Bologna
The Principe di Bologna collections are based on high quality, external simplicity and trends of the season, which can be easily seen on the example of the new Italian brand bag. For the first, fine-grained or smooth skin is responsible, for the second - a rounded shape and the absence of unnecessary details, and for the third - acid colors: neon yellow, neon pink and scarlet. Bags in these shades automatically make the look bright and bold, while another model from the collection, nude, is a great option for every day.

Salvatore Ferragamo Trifoglio
The new accessory line of Salvatore Ferragamo creative director Paul Andrew includes several bags at once. This is a tote that is distinguished by its spaciousness and architectural design, a shopper suspended by chain handles, a cross-body with three small compartments, and finally, an envelope bag that resembles an accordion when opened (the premiere model this spring). What unites the Trifoglio series is Gancini's signature gold-tone clasp and the fact that each of the bags is the result of Italian craftsmanship. They bring the model to perfection so that it can serve for a long time not only to the customer, but also to her heirs.

Cult gaia estelle
Instagram superstar Cult Gaia has unveiled its new Estelle this season with its bamboo frame bag arch. It has a trapezoidal shape, as if it was peeped at a contemporary art exhibition, two metal handles, complemented by a removable leather strap, and glossy soft leather with crocodile embossing. Unlike previous models by American designer Jasmine Larian, this one is not only spectacular, but also spacious. You can put a smartphone, wallet and keys there, the safety of which is ensured by a frame lock, like in travel bags.
