Jeanne Beker on this fall’s three hottest styles in bags

Whether you’re twid­dling it be­tween your fin­gers, hang­ing it across your torso or strap­ping it to your back, a good bag can take your look to the next level. So we asked Jeanne Beker to pick her favourite bags for fall in three quin­tes­sen­tial styles — the mini bag, back­pack and cross body.

BACK­PACKBUCKET BACK­PACK Hoi Bo, 15 Trin­ity St.,$328, “A to­tally un­usual back­pack that is very el­e­gant and mod­ern. This 3D knit fab­ri­ca­tion is so in­ter­est­ing. It’s very high fash­ion, very mod­ern, very for­ward. ”

SPORTY CHIC An­drews, Bayview Vil­lage,$280, “A great nod to the ath­leisure trend, it’s not too fancy but has a pearl­ized quilted ny­lon fab­ric with a nice feel to it. It looks sporty chic and is a great lit­tle bag for travel.”

GREY DAYS Fitzy, Etsy.com,$105.63, “If I was go­ing to go danc­ing, this bag will do just the job. I love the col­oration, and there’s some­thing ar­ti­sanal about it.

MINI BAGTINY PER­FEC­TION Ela, elabyela.com,$395, “This is ir­re­sistible. You want to take a bite out of it. You would keep this in your col­lec­tion and pass it down.”

OBJET D’ART Ela, elabyela.com, $395, “It’s like an objet you want to dis­play on your man­tel with this an­tique gold metal­lic and these beau­ti­ful flow­ers that seem to be grow­ing right out of the bag.”

COM­ING IN CLUTCH Eleven Thirty, 1130 Col­lege St., $203, “I like the hair­calf and the fact that you can snap off the strap and carry this as a lit­tle clutch.”

UL­TRA LUXE Davids, 66 Bloor St. W., $1,590, “A gor­geous, lux­u­ri­ous ny­lon back­pack with beau­ti­ful stud­ding on the strap from our friend Chris­tian Louboutin.”

CIR­CLE AROUND Matt & Nat, mat­tand­nat.com, $160, “I’ve seen a lot of back­packs re­cently, but I haven’t seen one like this. It’s rem­i­nis­cent of an old-fash­ioned hat box. ”

LEOP­ARD LOVE Aldo, Prom­e­nade mall, $50, “What a cute bag! It’s got this hair­calf and a great leop­ard print, which is a big story for the sea­son.”

STUD­DED UPDavids, 66 Bloor St. W., $1,660, “I love the trade­mark Valentino studs on the strap be­cause it al­most works as a piece of jew­ellery.”

CROSS BODYGOOD BONES Opelle, 128 St. Clarens Ave.,$345, “It’s beau­ti­ful, sim­ple and chic and has these bone han­dles for dec­o­ra­tion or to carry it as an el­e­gant evening bag.”

MIN­I­MAL­IS­TIC Zane, 753 Queen St. W., $476, “There’s some­thing retro about this lit­tle clo­sure, and it gives the bag a lot of per­son­al­ity.”
