In the Bag: 5 Must-Have Satchels for Spring


Spring is the best time to show off trendy new bags—the weather is warm, the sun is shining, and there’s little worry they will get wet (though beware those April showers!). The following 5 satchels, plucked from 2014’s spring runways, are colorful, creatively designed, and the perfect arm candy to add to any warm-weather outfit.

Proenza Schouler Medium Suede Fringe Satchel Bag, $1,795

Fringe is a big trend for spring and this deep red suede satchel would make a perfect addition to any boho-chic style. The gold hardware adds a high-end, sturdy touch.

 Chloé Marcie Medium Leather Satchel, $1,950

This bolt-of-blue Chloé bag has a beautifully embossed front flap, while its lightly pebbled calfskin leather gives the satchel a sophisticated touch. It’s still a tad playful, however, with its fun, curvy flap and contrasting gold hardware.

THE ROW Grained Top-Handle Medium Satchel Bag, $2,950

This super structured, creamy white satchel is perfect for the organized woman who likes to have all her ducks in a row. The bag contains one zip pocket and two open pockets inside, in addition to a slide pocket in the back. The sturdy straps drop 11″, and the leather bar affixed across the front is a nice, clean piece of hardware that underscores the sophisticated style.

Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile Satchel Bag, $3,750 

You’ll definitely get noticed with this fire-engine red, glossy crocodile bag hanging from your arm. Pleated details on both the front and back of the bag feature magnetic top pockets; inside the satchel is lined in suede, contains two large compartments divided by a zipper, as well as two small zipper and two small open pockets. It’s just as roomy as it is elegant and eye-catching. 

Ralph Lauren Soft Ricky 27 Small Soft Calfskin Satchel Bag, $2,250 

Refined yet dramatic (thanks to its bold, bright yellow shade) this calfskin satchel will add an element of fun to any drab spring outfit. Its front silver hardware—complete with a slide-lock clasp, belted closures, and hanging covered keys—keeps the satchel playful, while its structured shape says in line with Ralph Lauren’s preppy style.
