Finally, the bags seen on the Autumn/Winter 2022 runways early this year have made it to stores worldwide, and here are some of the key pieces presented by these luxury brands.

Bottega Veneta’s Mini Cabat retains all of the signature details of the iconic bag, interpreted with new dimensions.

Constructed through the hand-weaving of double-faced fettucce, it features a detachable and adjustable strap that allows for the bag to be carried across the body, on the shoulder, or by hand.

Finished with the brand’s Greca insignia, a long-held symbol of the brand that borders the Medusa head signifier, its geometric Greca hardware crafted in burnished-gold metal.

Loewe’s compact Amazona 16 Square bag was relaunched in 2021 with a refined yet contemporary aesthetic, and the line now includes an extra small version.

It exudes a casual, youthful vibe, featuring graphic squared proportions in nappa calfskin leather and a jacquard strap. It’s available in several colours.

Balmain’s new collection includes this quilted leather 1945 soft bag, in size small, with a chain and leather handle, and a clasp fastening with a “Balmain Paris 1945” exterior plaque in a burnished gold finish.

The perfect companion for a night out, it’s a no-fuss solution to carry all your essentials, and in black (it also comes in red and in medium), it matches just about anything.

The Balenciaga Crush Bag possesses the curved and pointed edges reiterating an iconic silhouette of the brand, the Hourglass.

Exceptionally pliable, it is made of supple leathers quilted diagonally, smooth, croc-embossed or shiny, and its soft form allows it to be collapsed or expanded with pressure, a deconstructed approach to the classic handbag.
