Mini dresses, crop tops and metallic jackets have all made the cut, but while weíve been gawking over must-have pieces and dream-worthy designs, some of those hot little accessories have been slipping under our radar. I will confess Iím a total bag lady, and although I own more purses than I actually use, it doesnít stop me from wanting to snag a few of these right off the runway. Taking a look back, hereís a quick look at the 17 hottest handbags from Paris Fashion Week.

Akris: The look of this white leather tote is pure sophistication. Itíll hold a laptop, iPad, makeup bag, books and anything else you can think of. The best part is the two different carrying handles for wearing it over the shoulder or in your hand.

Andrew Gn: Itís so hard to pick just one Andrew Gn bag. The mini box clutches are so cute, but with a double box styling and shoulder strap, this purse is like a two-for-one. Plus the navy and black together make for some serious drama.
Chanel: The minute I saw this on the runway I had a mini freakout. This tiny ombre crossbody bag is so hot I could wear it anywhere and everywhereóand I donít even care that itís only big enough for a lipstick.

Chloť: The Baylee as a clutch. This is such a simple but brilliant way to refresh a favorite purse. Now Iíll have to go through the bags I own just to see which I can fold over into a whole new look.

Emanuel Ungaro: Tiny clutches were all over the runway, but none were as bedazzled and blinged out as this itty-bitty box. I would plan an entire trip to Vegas around this bag.

Giambattista Valli: The emerald marbling on this white trim clutch is bold enough to wear with almost anything and the color palette makes is perfect for day or night. Plus, I am loving those earthy gold bracelets.

Ground Zero: A functional clutch! With room for things and even a wrist strap! The floral patterns and bright colors on a black and white background are on-trend for spring. And everyone loves a little patent leatheróespecially in electric blue.

Hexa by Kuho: I loved the shape of this bag when I first saw it. Itís a new take on the popular side flaps and has a totally fresh shape. And then I noticed the camera slot. Iím going to need this in every coloróimmediately.

Kenzo: Pastels are probably some of the hottest shades right now. And while theyíre intended for spring, pairing them with black will allow you to give in to your pastel cravings this winter. This mint, black and white handbag offers the perfect hint of color.

Lie Sang Bong: Speaking of color, this clutch was probably one of the brightest on the runway. It totally pops and the optical illusion flowers give it a funky edge we havenít seen before.

Miu Miu: Iím pretty sure my grandmother owned a purse like this. The perfectly structured handbag that will stay a timeless classic. Aside from being fashionable for years, this purse will go with literally everything.

Olympia Le Tan: If youíre going to have a nautical themed collection, you need a blowfish clutch. Itís basically a must. Sure, I canít imagine anywhere you could wear it, but itís just so bold and funky I canít help but love it. And the color and texture? Itís all beading.

Rochas: This metallic bowling bag is bright, bold and beautifully textured, while still being large enough to carry everything. See, you donít need a clutch for every outfit. And that zipper goes all the way to the bottom so youíre not losing your chapstick in the infinite void of your purse.

Roland Mouret: While those Madonna wristcuffs are appealing to the Ď80s kid in me, itís the clutch that really has my attention. Itís big, totally functional and those colors are perfect to carry you from winter to spring and back again.

Talbot Runhof: Usually, blends of gold and silver are not my favorites, but after seeing this bag Iím totally changing my mind. This holographic leather mini purse is probably one of my favorites from Paris Fashion Week. And thatís saying a lot.

Valentino: This show was so good. So very, very good. It was intricately decorated right down to the golden griffins on this clutch. And while there are definitely a few party bags on this list nothing looks as luxurious as gilded gold.

Vanessa Bruno: This bag is so funky, itís almost bad. But the mix of clashing colors and prints, not to mention the gigantic tassels, make this little purse so fun. The rounded shape is small, but perfect for sayócarrying your breakfast grapefruit to work?
