Carried Away: The 7 Bags on The Barneys Covet List for Spring

What greater motivation is there to stick it out through the winter than the reward of a new arm candy come spring?

We polled the Barneys New York team on the topic of the season’s best bags, and here are the ones they told us they wouldn’t be be putting down.

The Lotuff leather bridle duffel bag has my name written all over it.

This season, I’m most excited about Narcisco Rodriguez clutches and the new Saint Laurent duffel (pictured in main image).

Valextra’s new Dada bag (call 212-833-2583 to order) is on the top of my list. I’m not usually drawn to chains on bags but I loved this as soon as I saw it. It has a handcrafted chain, a new design combining Vs and Xs. It’s lightweight and beautiful.

It’s hard to pick one bag because there are so many great bags in so many different materials. However, I am quite partial to Saddlers Union and I particularly like the striped Boston duffel.  It is very simple elegant and beautifully made.

If I was a chick I would rock the Delvaux Madame PM.

I have so many casual bags—I am now craving a real briefcase, one like this Felisi that has old school charm but a high-tech interior to contain my various electronic communication gadgets.

I love the Balmain x Aurélie Bidermann suede bag for spring (call 212-833-2723 to order). It comes in the most perfect shade of cherry red. Nothing like a pop of red to bring a little happiness to your day!
