It’s in the Bag:
7 Editors Share Their Fall Picks

Between exotic-looking textures, elegant top handles, and curveball tones, this season’s crop of handbags is, well, a lot to unpack. Luckily, goop staffers’ accessory tastes run from miniature-minded to go-big-or-go-home to every size and shape in between. Here, seven editors volunteer to do all the heavy—or in some cases, quite light—lifting.

  • “Last year, I relied heavily on a slick, structured Stella McCartney tote. This go-round, I’m taking things in a more unstructured direction with this comfortable, cappuccino suede companion. On top of the fact that it works year-round, it’s also supersize, for packing in fall weekends up the coast.”

  • “If you’re looking for a rich, enduring palette to last beyond this season, then stop right here. I picture this Lutz Morris piece—with its thick burgundy strap—draped against a minimal camel coat.”

  • “I’m a sucker for a clean, graphic look, which makes this camera bag the perfect counterpart to my tonal approach to autumn layers.”

  • “While Staud’s bucket shape stays true to my minimal taste, I love how the unusual twist of texture brings my black-and-navy uniform to life. And its easy, open-top design is such a time-saver for when I’m out and about—I can just toss things in.”

  • “I’ve spent the bulk of my bag-carrying life schlepping around oversize totes. Then I purchased my first tiny bag on a whim in Florence and have been a convert ever since. This Hunting Season bag goes from crossbody to top handle, which is the purse category I’m hoping to tackle next.”

  • “The first red bag I owned was a Céline Trio. I bought it five years ago and wore it more or less threadbare. As Céline ushers in its new creative director, Hedi Slimane, I’m still clinging to the last remnants of Phoebe Philo’s tenure—#PhoebeForever. This big bucket bag will carry me through fall with its slouchy, fits-everything silhouette. And while the color is bolder than my conservative navy or tan standbys, it complements just about everything in my closet—especially denim—which I wear almost every day in LA.”

  • “Here, the patchwork of five different tones stands out without overpowering. Better still, the accordion shape works organizational miracles when I need to file away essentials on the move.”
