New York Fashion Week isn't over just yet, and London, Milan, and Paris are to come, meaning the verdict is still out on the clothing trends that will dominate next spring. But one thing's for certain: Designers are really having fun with handbags.

Did you see the clear champagne and hat purses at Brandon Maxwell's show? How about the extremely micro-mini chain bags? Some people might say they are ridiculously unpractical, or wonder why anyone would ever buy a bag like that. But hey, that's what makes fashion fun, right? Although I certainly can appreciate a handbag that can stylishly hold all of my belongings, there's nothing wrong with falling in love with a bag that's more artsy than functional.

Here, a roundup of the hottest handbags from the Spring 2019 runways.
