If you’re searching for a new handbag that’s both on-trend and functional to style with your Fall 2017 wardrobe, then look no further than the new It bags that sprang up on the Fall 2017 ready-to-wear runways. A great bag elevates your style, but when every influencer, celebrity, and editor is carrying the same one, you’ll want to purchase a piece with a point of difference. While the Vogue shopping list is seemingly endless, we pick three versatile styles that will transition from day to night with ease.
Saint Laurent’s new offering, the Babylone bag, is a versatile example that comes in buttersoft leather or embossed crocodile-effect leather, that makes a chic bedfellow to a pair of ripped jeans or an elegant, all-black abaya. Scrawled under the bag’s front flap is a hidden message that reads “how can an angel break my heart” — a possible reference to the ’96 song by Toni Braxton of the same name.

Meanwhile, those who want to infuse a dose of playfulness to their fall wardrobe will adore the new Fendi Kan-I, which debuted on the Italian brand’s Fall 2017 runway. Succeeding the Peekaboo and Baguette Bag, the new addition is a rectangular, boxy flap bag with a jewel fastening stud closure in the center. Offbeat prints and adjustable straps makes the bag more timeless and inventive.

The Chanel Gabrielle Bag may be the French maison’s latest addition, but it’s already on the arms of editors and street style stars the world over. Named after Coco Chanel (her real name was Gabrielle) the piece is Chanel’s first major bag launch since the Boy Bag, which launched in 2011. With its double chain strap, the bag nearly doubles as body jewelry when strapped across the body and over the shoulder simultaneously. Leave it to Karl Lagerfeld to create two of the most coveted bags of the season.
