    Bulgari

    Bulgari means luxury when it comes to bags, and this flap bag with chain handle is just that. This style is continued from a past season but is updated in a blue and black snakeskin.

    Dolce & Gabbana

    Not one to hold back, Dolce combined a fur flap with their signature gold accents. Fur was a major trend in bags this fall and this one is a decadent example.

    Fendi

    Fendi sent large top handle bags down the runway, like this number with side panels in calfhair in rich burgundy and golden orange. The large scale makes this a practical choice for the real woman.

    Ferragamo

    Astrakhan fur elevated this bag at Salvatore Ferragamo. It can be worn crossbody or as a long shoulder bag.

    Gucci

    Gucci mixed materials in a prim structured bag that continues the lady trend, but takes it in a darker direction with black velvet and leather.

    Marni

    Marni’s bags had a mod quality to them, also with top handles but smaller in scale than other designers and uber-matching to their respective looks. This one in red is a bright pop of color in a classic shape.

    Prada

    Prada’s collection of accessories is always a highpoint and this season Miuccia did not disappoint. Though I loved the baroque jewel encrusted bags, my favorites were these ones in graphic prints.

    Tod’s

    Tod’s showed a collection of bright colors and conservative designs, I love this bright fuchsia family of flap clutches.
