There’s no doubt that the lineup of handbags for fall 2023 are made for the woman on the go. Whether they come in the form of supersized carryalls designed to hold a jam-packed day’s worth of essentials or in the form of convertible clutches that offer four-plus ways to wear them, luxury handbags have never been better at mirroring our ever-busier lives. Thankfully this season, we don’t have to sacrifice function for fashion.
Yes, shoulder bags are still the leading silhouette, but the styles on offer range from petite and structured to oversized and roomy, so there’s really something for everyone. Of course, deciding to invest in a designer bag is far from a casual affair, what with the endless parade of options in the market and the increasingly high price tags they come with. As a fashion editor, I consider it my duty to scutinze everything from size and shape to versatility and function when recommending a luxury handbag, but today I’m taking it one step further by lending the season’s top three styles my personal review.
Here, discover my shortlist of the most talked-about bags of fall 2023—the Gucci Horsebit Chain Strap Bag, Prada Triangle-Logo Handbag, and Loewe Squeeze Bag—complete with details on their fit, function, and how much really fits inside each.
