Whether you’re pumping up on pumpkin spice everything or road tripping to catch the beautiful changing leaves, fall has arrived around many parts of the world. Over at ATPB HQ we’re pulling our autumn jackets and wardrobe out of storage to stay warm amid the changing season, keeping our eye on the accessories as well. Everyone on Team ATPB embraces wishful thinking and today we’re definitely dreaming of fall 2020 bags. How about you, Pretty Birds?
Our Favorite Fall 2020 Bags
I am loving this LV backpack. It’s a convertible piece so that you can style it in many ways. That is always a bonus when you are investing in a luxury item.
I love the croissant shaped bag style that’s been popular for the past couple seasons. The Neous Neptune style is one of the chichest. I love the fine pleats and knot details. They are touches that make this piece so special.
This bag has been on my wishlist for ages. I love the simple minimalist design and that the bag shape is meant to look like a gift bag. Rihanna was spotted out wearing a yellow MEDEA bag and if it’s good enough for Riri – it’s good enough for me.
Vavvoune is a Black-owned handbag brand based in Brooklyn, New York. I’m a huge fan of their bag designs, the materials they use and they recently collaborated with Project Runway season 4 winner Christian Siriano.

I am not a bag lady; I am instead a shoe addict. I never have this frenzy for name brand bags or it-bags other than a classic Chanel or the Birkin of Hermès. I’m more attracted to noble materials and timeless cuts. For this season, I have selected three bags that shine with their minimalism and that I could wear just as well in fall-winter as in spring-summer.
I am looking for this bag everywhere. I have not yet made my choice between the mini olive color or the larger version. At first, I wasn’t super into it because I hate to wear the same thing as everyone else, but when I started to learn about the designer, Telfar Clemens, his aborted collaboration with Gap and the “For The Culture” impact, I fell in love with his brand. I looked for it all over Paris, not a single crumb. On the site, the stocks are not yet renewed. That’s a must-have for sure, I need it now!
I favor small brands over big ones because the prices are not excessive and mainly because I believe that small ones’ DNA remains intact. Staud has been one of my favorites for the last two years. I have several from the brand, a little black bag with glazed leather and a black purse. I like that the LA-based designer Sarah Staudinger does not try to do too much and that the beauty is hidden in the details. The green leather crocodile print bag has been in my wishlist for a while. Maybe I should make up my mind.
I may contradict myself on everything I just said earlier, but small bags are still trending. At Acne, they are compact and colorful like tangy candies. Big enough to fit a smartphone, a lipstick, and a mask, unlike Jacquemus’ Chiquito.
My fall 2020 bag of choice is the Olivia Yin Yang by Paloma Wool. I think this bag is beautiful because it represents balance and spirituality in a fashionable way. I love that it’s neutral and can be worn with anything. Most of my wardrobe consists of basics – so this bag is ideal for someone with a minimal chic style. Leather is my favorite bag material and I feel like this purse won’t go out of style. Paloma Wool has been killing it this year and she outdid herself with this design. There’s also a smaller version of this purse which is just as cute as the bucket.
I love the simplicity and vintage feel of this bag, which has a gusseted interior to give me a semblance of organization. Its versatility with a chain or leather strap, or simply as a clutch, makes it easy to transition throughout the day and evening. Plus you can’t go wrong with Italian leather.
Back to school vibes with this book clutch. I would keep this one in my clutches, as long as it’s big enough to fit a tiny copy of Le Petit Prince! Olympia Le Tan has plenty of other options from Barbar to Basquiat, all hand-embroidered silk thread. I wouldn’t mind filling a closet with these book-shaped designs!
I have wanted a Paco Rabanne Chainmail Bag forever now and I have never pulled the trigger. This new floral take adds a little femininity to the iconic bag.
Tartan lover forever and admirer of Chopova Lowena’s efforts in sustainability, wanting this as my carry-all bag for fall.
