Now that the Spring 2015 fashion show season has drawn to a close, it's time to look back, evaluate and separate the notable pieces from the fluff. It seems like more brands stock their shows with handbags every season, and Spring 2015′s best bags include both handbag stalwarts and...

For a moment, I thought about pairing this gallery of Chanel Spring 2015 runway bags with only the following text: "Below, you will find a series of photos of Chanel bags that you will not like. Don't shoot the messenger." Part of me still thinks that might suffice. After several seasons of...

Nanette Lepore though, is the only one that I know of who puts so many of them on the same runway. Her spring 2015 collection at New York Fashion Week was inspired by her last few vacations. You can see the South of France as muse in the delicate tile prints in pastel colors. You can see...

Prada changes things up so much from one season to the next on its runways that I didn't have any terribly specific for predictions for what kinds of bags would grace the brand's Spring 2018 runway, and if I had tried to guess, I would have undoubtedly come up far short of what Prada...

, but for Fall 2015, they were incrementally less weird. The show featured only a handbag of bags, split mostly into two categories: colorful, minimalist hobos and wearable vest-bags. The vest-bags were the conceptual note to which we've become accustomed, although they felt more functional...

Unless you're brand new to Céline, you're well aware that the brand tends to show far more unusual and conceptual bags on its runways than the majority of what actually ends up getting stocked in stores. Instead of Luggage Totes and Trapeze Bags, Céline's Spring 2016 runway show was full of...

If you've ever wondered what a pair of retro basketball sneakers would look like if they were flayed and then restructured into a fancy designer bag (and if you have, why?), then I have, somewhat implausibly, some good news for you: that's basically the gist of Alexander Wang's Spring 2015...

It's early in the season and none of the handbag heavyweights from Milan and Paris have shown us what they've got quiet yet, but I'm here to make a bold prediction: Nothing that we see on the coming runways will be as fun as Anya Hindmarch's Spring 2015 bags, and I'd be surprised if any of...

In journalism school, my favorite professor once told me that reviewing something you love is much more difficult than reviewing something you hate, which means I've got my work cut out for me when it comes to Fendi's Spring 2015 bags. After scoping out the dozens (literally) of bags and small...

If you liked the cheeky post-modernism of Anya Hindmach's Spring 2015 runway bags but thought that the super-styled versions that the models carried were just a bit much for you, you're in luck. Many of the bags from the runway will be sold as separate components, meaning that you're free to...
