The autumn/winter 2019/20 collections have given rise to a host of new designer ‘It’ bags. While styles such as the Louis Vuitton Speedy and the Chanel Boy bag have long had icon status, the new AW19 range has seen them redesigned, giving them a new lease of life. There are plenty of new handbag models to covet this AW19, such as the Chloé Aby bag, for which the brand looked to the 2006 Paddington bag for inspiration. Louis Vuitton has also looked through its archives, and it has created the new Louis Vuitton Mini Luggage Vertical bag, a sartorial tribute to the brand’s travel roots. Whether you are wanting to invest in a new style for the season or looking to revive an old faithful in a new colourway, be sure to seek inspiration from our guide to the best AW19 French designer handbags here.
