Locò Valentino Garavani bag

The playful and retro Valentino Garavani Locò bag kicks off our Spring/Summer 2022 bag roundup. As a romantic reference to design and the idea of ​​urban movement, Locò derives from the word locomotive.

The compact double-handle bag stole our hearts with its plush lacquered leather and sleek VLogo Signature clip closure. The versatile bag can be easily transformed into a clutch by effectively detaching the handle. Plus, the electrifying hue goes with the silhouette to up the wow factor.

Hermes Sabot

Hermès has shown us that it is indeed possible to reinvent the basket bag with its new entry, the Sabot Hermès. The bag takes its distinctive shape from the horse’s hoof, a nod to the French luxury brand’s equestrian heritage. The woven wicker that wraps around it has been entirely handcrafted, as has the leather handle that comes in this iconic shade of orange. There’s nothing better to take with you on your next picnic.

Now available in Hermès boutiques.

BalenciagaHead sneakers

Ironic designs became Demna’s specialty while at the helm of Balenciaga, where he gave us everything from Crocs heels to furry handbags. The new TrainersHead bag, however, is its most playful contribution yet: while slightly resembling the Balenciaga Hourglass bag in silhouette, it’s heavily adorned with laces and layered panels straight out of Balenciaga’s best-selling sneaker line.

Celine Triomphe Leather Handbag

We’re big fans of the Triomphe de Céline pattern, which founder Céline Vipiana created after seeing the chains surrounding the Arc de Triomphe. The 1972 design has graced many monogrammed bags since Hedi Slimane took over the French fashion house, but it’s now being used in a whole new way. Join the Triomphe Leather family: each bag is boldly embossed with the Triomphe logo, and the effect is particularly stunning on this shoulder bag. It has all the ease and elegance of the Celine bags adored by Blackpink’s Kaia Gerber and Lisa, and we’ll no doubt see them both transition to this new style in the coming months.

Here is one for collectors. For Spring/Summer 2022, Fendi’s creative director, Kim Jones, was inspired by the works of Antonio Lopez. The influential fashion illustrator, whose works captured the zest of the 70s, has featured extensively in magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and She. Now, however, you can flaunt them through Fendi’s Peekaboo bag, where many of Lopez’s striking works of art have been faithfully recreated in leather.

The aptly named Chanel 22 bag is the French luxury brand’s big new accessory of the year. Designer Virginie Viard reimagined Chanel’s signature quilted leather and chain details to create a plush tote you can wear every day.

Dior Bobby East-West

When the Dior Bobby launched in 2020, it made the case for hobo bags at a time when square flap bags and pillow-like clutches were all the rage. Now, however, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri has refined the silhouette into something more timeless. The Bobby East-West adopts a baguette shape crafted in box calfskin. It’s extremely versatile, thanks to its detachable shoulder strap that lets you wear it cross-body, cross-body or as a handbag. Finally, we’re obsessed with the soft colors he offers, especially this “Rose des Vents” shade that we’ll be sure to see very soon on Dior Ambassador Jisoo.
