Whether it's a clutch, backpack, or tote, we don't just have preferences when it comes to handbags; we have feelings. After all, when we choose one for ourselves, we don't just think of what we'll wear with it — we think about how much it can carry, how long it will last, how comfortable it will be to hold it all day long, and what it will be like to scramble for our keys.
But, every Fashion Week, we're reminded that not only are handbags our MVP of accessories; they're also the perfect little (or not so little) works of art that truly transform and elevate our looks. Ahead, we pay homage to the 45+ designs that are totally our bag.
