Here are our ten favorite handbag moments of last year:

1. Amal Clooney’s Namesake Bag

Amal Alamuddin-Clooney quickly became one of the biggest style icons of 2015. This stylish lady was honored by the Italian brand Ballin with a luxurious tote that was named after her.

2. Louis Vuitton Petite Malle Metallic Fur

Louis Vuitton has been stepping up its handbag game with more edgy and unique designs. One of its standout bags is the Petite Malle metallic fur purse from the Cruise 2015 collection.

The brand’s original Maison trunks inspired this new design, reinvented as smaller bags with gorgeous metallic finishing. This purse is one of the most expensive pieces in the collection, with a price tag of $34,000!

3. Reese Witherspoon’s Bally Sommet Fold Tote

Pantone has already announced that Rose Quartz and Serenity are THE colors of 2016, but last year, it was all about Marsala.

Legally Blonde actress Reese Witherspoon showed some love for Pantone’s 2015 color by carrying a Marsala-colored tote that matched her sweater.

The bag is a tri-tone Bally Sommet Fold tote priced at around $1,600.

4. Katy Perry Moschino Pump Bag

As a fan of quirky style, Katy Perry just loves to be photographed wearing interesting fashion pieces.

At last year’s Moschino spring/summer show, the pop star wore a head-to-toe Moschino ensemble to pay tribute to the brand.

We love her Moschino pump bag, which seemed the perfect thing to carry with this outfit.

5. Ralph Lauren Ricky Tote

It is understated but still elegant. Last year, the Ralph Lauren “Ricky” tote was seen in the arms of many celebrities like Emmy Rossum and Jessica Alba.

It’s pretty obvious why this tote is loved by many — it has a classic silhouette, comes in various color options, and the price tag is not as expensive as other designer bags.

She was spotted carrying a lovely mini Chanel purse during last year’s London Fashion Week — a great bag choice, especially since mini and micro purses were very big trends in 2015.

7. Christian Louboutin Lucky L Hobo

Like Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin has also been upgrading its handbag game. One of its best releases for Fall 2015 was the Lucky L Anthracite leather hobo, which features an edgy mix of studs, spikes, and fringes.

Along with the whole “Lucky L” line of handbags, this was one of the most standout statement purses of the year. Unfortunately, the collection was such a big hit that items quickly flew off the shelves.

9. Taylor Swift’s Alexander McQueen Box Bag

When Taylor Swift posted a photo of her beloved cat Olivia on Instagram, it also came with a gorgeous Alexander McQueen purse.

The photo instantly became popular, and bag aficionados (like us) quickly found the purse’s label. This McQueen “The Box” bag showcases simple color blocking and a modern box silhouette.

10. Louis Vuitton City Steamer MM Crocodile Leather

Along with efforts to upgrade its brand, Louis Vuitton has also been increasing its prices. Last year, the designer released its most expensive bag yet — a crocodile rendition of its City Steamer Tote.

The exotic bag looks like a Birkin and has a price tag of $55,000!
