Greatness and practicality seemed to be recurring themes this season. With the oversized bags that made their runway debut earlier this year, brands such as Tom Ford and Fendi have given a whole new meaning to the prefix "maxi". For trips or days when you plan to carry your entire wardrobe in one bag, this may be the perfect solution.

Mini handles

Back in the 90s, when shoulder bags were everywhere. The only difference in 2020? No shoulder is needed. Mini top handles were a common feature of the autumn collections, upgrading many runway looks. Small enough not to compromise convenience, but bold enough to position themselves as statement bags, bags with small handles will be everywhere this fall. 

The clutch bag

Is it a purse or a pouch? Consider this model as a hybrid of both. A versatile autumn trend that continues from day to night, propelled by designers like Bottega Veneta who have made it a must-have. Chic and functional, what more could you ask for this autumn?

The micro bag

For all lovers of minimalism, the micro-bag is still there next season! The trend, which can be seen well before the autumn fashion shows, has become particularly popular among street style enthusiasts and influencers on Instagram for several seasons now. The good news is that it continues to be popular and is even available for everyday accessories: AirPods, water bottles, lipsticks... Micro-bags are reinventing themselves!

The geometric bag
