V123: Top Ten

Issey Miyake to Armani, here are our top handbags for the season from V123’s print issue.

X-Ray Vision

Transparency is in, as Emporio Armani’s SS20 collection, “AIR,” attested. That breezy theme goes portable with this plexiglass bag, offered in full- transparency and red-tinted versions. With white leather trim and silver hardware, the design balances minimalism and statement-piece status.

Guitar Hero

CFDA nominee Mike Amiri merges his love for music and a keen eye for design to deliver the Guitar Bag. Available in suede, leather and embossed croc leather, the guitar-shaped backpack features an amp-jack-inspired closure.

Green Light

Allow luxury Italian fashion house Fendi to re-introduce one of this season’s most enviable accessories. For Spring 2020, Silvia Venturini Fendi revamped her Peekaboo handbag’s trademark porous construction, now offered in compact raffia, latticework leather, and open-weave “FF” toile.
