While past seasons have been all about the recognizable “it” bag—think the Chloé Paddington, the Balenciaga City bag, and Louis Vuitton’s once all-to0-ubiquitous graffiti bags—for Spring 2015, the hottest styles are all about texture, color, and no blatant logos.
In an age where personal style is more revered than wearing a single designer head-to-toe, it’s fitting that spring’s most coveted everyday bags are label discreet, but still score high marks for their statement-making style points like creamy pastel shades, bold color-blocking, and sleek snakeskin.
Whether it’s Les Petits Joueurs top-handle bag that’s a street style favorite thanks to its fun Lego detailing, to Burberry Prorsum’s hand-painted leather color-block “Bee” bowling bag, these are the kind of bags that will let your personal style shine.
Here, we gave six of the coolest handbags of the season a test drive. Scroll through the gallery above to see how they look when taken out for a spin—and to shop your favorite.
