Watch Out For This Handbag Trend At The FW24 Shows In Paris And Milan

There’s been a new style of handbag making waves at the Fashion Week shows this month. For Fall/Winter 2024, the top handle bag is set to make a return in a big way. 

One key takeaway? It means you should be able to fit a sizable amount in them, as they’re significantly more roomy than their crossbody and micro clutch predecessors. 

So far this season we’ve some exquisite examples of the top handle bag on the catwalk – from subtle silhouettes at the Khaite show to bucket bags accessorising key looks on the Ulla Johnson runway. 


The trend is only set to get more exciting over the next few weeks, as all eyes will turn to Milan and Paris for the big two fashion weeks there. 

Hermes practically created the original version of this trend with the Birkin and will no doubt be one to watch for new designs in the top-handle handbag space. 

Other houses to keep a look out for in Paris for this delightful returning trend include Dior and Louis Vuitton. Prior to that – our bets are on Miu Miu, Fendi, and Ferragamo in Milan.

Handbags at the ready, ladies and gents.
