The New and Notable Handbags for Spring

Key pieces of the season from Prada, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Issey Miyake, and Gucci.

Transitioning into a new season calls for a wardrobe refresh and a standout, versatile accessory. Before turning to raffia and canvas bags for the summer, we looked to add a few bags that are lighter—and brighter—to the seasonal rotation. From versatile traditional hues and shrunken shapes to stunning charms and embellishments, these recently introduced styles are sure to be new classics.



Prada Galleria Leather Bag with Floral Appliqués

Meticulous craftsmanship and sophistication come together in new versions of the signature Prada Galleria handbag. Over 80 pieces are handcrafted into two unique designs: microstudded and napa-leather appliqués of geranium flowers or buds. Featuring three compartments and a detachable leather strap, this large-sized calfskin bag will turn heads.





Dior Nolita Bag

A charming, elegant edition in the latest collection from Maria Grazia Chiuri, the Nolita features smooth black lambskin in Dior’s contemporary macro-cannage look. A versatile option, this style is available in medium or large sizes and can be worn as a hand, shoulder, or crossbody bag. Charms on its rounded handles spell out D-I-O-R, paying homage to Christian Dior’s own talisman.

The Dior Nolita Bag available in Dior boutiques on April 25.





Louis Vuitton Low Key Bag Hobo MM

The Low Key collection from Louis Vuitton is luxurious without being excessive. This larger size offers enough room to hold a laptop and features grained calfskin leather and a suede leather lining, plus an adjustable strap and a padlock engraved with “LV.” The style is distinct from the Monogram bag but not distant from its signature touch: a removable monogram pocket inside the slouchy-style bag.





Gucci Shoulder Mini Shoulder Bag

In spring hues—pale blue and brown or bright pink—this bag with a leather trim and the signature GG clasp is ideal for carrying just a few essentials: a phone, a lipstick, and a few cards. Although light to carry, this small-sized shoulder bag made from canvas and linen features a hook to fasten to a large-sized bag when preferred.





Issey Miyake Pink Square Crumpled Bag

Issey Miyake’s namesake brand has presented a delicate tulle bag with a top handle wrapped in a single knot. Reflecting the designer’s innovative creations around shape and texture, this lightly padded textured slouchy bag has a slip pocket inside and embroidery throughout. In a blush tone, the Crumpled Bag is an ideal addition to a spring-coloured closet.
