New York Fashion Week Spring 2015 has quickly come to a close and designers, editors and models alike all impressed on and off the runways. Instead of our usual trend round-up, this season we are talking the best of bags.  We are eyeing up the handbags on the runways and on the street. Designers showed a lot of statement handbags from kitschy clutches to bold backpacks. They didn’t disappoint and neither did all the fashionistas who attended the Spring 2015 shows. Current season or classics, we saw a lot of stand out  handbags.  See our best in bags countdown:
