Season in, season out we see the latest It-bags emerge on catwalks and on the arms of style icons. This season, there's a particularly exceptional crop - and we've sorted through them to deliver the looks Buro loves and the ones your wardrobe needs.

Trend wise, luxe fabrics like exotic animal skins, textured tweeds and classic sheepskin are on point, and can be found in an array of functional shapes such as satchels, backpacks and shoppers. Gold hardware and rivets are a favourite look of the season, and they're especially eye-catching on Chloé's selection of shoulder bags.

The standout pieces? Chanel's felt satchel that resembles one of their timeless tweed jackets is a winner, as is Bottega Veneta's classic bowling bag - given a new season twist in navy suede.

But if you made us choose just one?  The tasselled python skin Gucci number is our pick - it's an instant classic!
