Spring's Best New It Bags

Spring's Best New It Bags

by Aaron Ealy
While not every bag is destined to join the ranks of the ten best it-bags of all time, that doesn't mean there aren't worthy contenders each season. Here are the five bags this spring that we're most excited about.

The Marc Jacobs Super Trooper

With its combination of luxe fabrics and utilitarian form, the Marc Jacobs Super Trooper is the perfect everyday bag for the girl (or guy) on the go. One of the most practical bags of the season, this runway style looks awesome worn in the most quotidian ways -- as a schoolbag, weekend-bag or gym-bag.

Myriam Schaefer's The Byron
The Byron, seen here in crocodile, is one of our favorite bags of the moment. Part of Myriam Schaefer's main line, it's a bit "ladies-who-lunch" but with a cooler edge. With prices comparable to Hermès, Schaefer makes bags for women who want the best quality available but with a little less obvious branding. The designer has worked with many great names in the industry and is the virtuoso behind the Balenciaga City Bag, which she designed while working for Nicolas Ghesquière while he was the Creative Director of the Parisian fashion house.

Loewe Pochette
This Loewe pochette, designed under Creative Director J.W. Anderson, is one of the best hand-held bags of the season. Representative of Anderson's affinity for re-imagining classics, this bag's abstract grid is the perfect balance of simplicity and eccentricity while its size makes for a great day-to-night bag.

Prada's Sac Porté Main (Top Handle Bag)
The beauty is in the details -- particularly the topstitching (one of Miuccia Prada's favorite touches right now) and layered panels of grey and black leather that contrast nicely with the caramel brown body.

Céline Curved Clutch
The incredible part of this bag is its austerity, yet another example of Creative Director Phoebe Philo's mastery of minimalism. The unique shape and single circular adornment make for a simple, yet totally dynamic, piece.
