Prada £1,500, Prada.com In the show, this applique leather bag was carried alongside all manner of clashing prints – you don't need to do this, as it makes quite the statement on its own. A bit Seventies, rather nostalgic and uniquely strange, this number has Prada written all over it. Not literally – they're flowers.
Chanel £1,830, 020 7493 5040 Chanel's Boy bag is named after Mademoiselle's great love, Boy Capel, and is a new take on the classic Chanel quilted bag. This versatile version has more of a gothic flavour, which will fit in perfectly with autumn's dark romantic trend.
Gucci £1,760, gucci.com Forget what you think you know about velvet – Gucci's Frida Giannini has reinvigorated it with a gothic equestrian feel. The gold hardware forms part of the brand's signature, while the panelling feels new and modern but isn't about to date any time soon, either.
Miu Miu £1,195, miumiu.com At Miu Miu this season, the doctor's bag is a key accessory. This tan leather version is less traditional, with its double clasps, but feels all the more special for it. The classic, warm and natural tone will go well with everything else in your wardrobe too.
Alaia £1,400, net-a-porter Make the ultimate understated statement with this perforated leather tote bag by fashion's demigod Azzedine Alaia. It's chic, classically elegant and spacious – and will only look better with age.
Louis Vuitton £2,510, louisvuitton.com We know we've been banging on about this North South tote from Louis Vuitton, but it truly is something to behold. The luxury label's classic monogram print is picked out in twinkly paillettes on felt and will add a bit of sparkle to your routine.
Dolce & Gabbana £1,810, 020 7659 9000 This season, the classic Dolce & Gabbana shape gets a baroque tapestry update – two of the biggest trends of the new season – and features one of the Italian duo's favourite things: gold. It might look like something your nana did in front of the telly, but this ladylike bag is pure luxury.
Celine £1,195, celine.com If you don't already own a floppy, over-sized clutch bag, where have you been? This fold-over version from one of Paris's most desirable labels is one of the best around, showcasing all the sleek hallmarks of designer Phoebe Philo's minimal style. And you can fit everything you need in it without too much trouble.
Marni £250, net-a-porter.com Is it a bag or is it Puffa jacket? Marni's utilitarian and sporty shopper is like carrying a lightweight sleeping bag on one arm, and if you don't want to add bulk to your body with the Puffa trend this autumn, why not try it out with accessories instead?.

Not everyone has the cash to splash, but if you’re in the market for some ultra-luxe arm candy, here’s our pick of the season
