Types of handbags
As a fashion accessory, handbags can be categorized according to the silhouette of the bag, as well as the type of handle. The current popular handbag silhouettes are (as of 2011):
Baguette: a small, narrow, rectangular shape purse, resembling a French loaf of bread (baguette)
Barrel: shaped like a barrel or closed tube, usually with shoulder-length straps
Bowling bag purse: a popular 1990s "retro" style for younger women, modelled after American bags used to carry bowling balls
Bucket bag: shaped like a bucket, medium-size or large, with shoulder straps and a drawstring closure
Clutch: a handbag without handles, rectangular in shape, often an evening bag but used during the day as well
Doctor's bag: modelled after a Victorian era doctor's bag for making housecalls
Drawstring: a purse that closes with a drawstring at the top, may have wrist- or shoulder-length straps, popular as an evening bag style
Half-moon: shaped as a half-moon
Hobo: medium-size crescent-shaped bag with a top zipper and often a slouch or dip in the centre; a modern, casual silhouette
Kiondo: a handwoven handbag made from sisal with leather trimmings. It is indigenous to Kenya
Lighted: a handbag with a lighting system which has been attempted since the 1950s without success until recently when in 2011 the first successful lighted handbag was brought to market.
Messenger bag: one long strap worn across the body, inspired by bags worn by urban messengers to deliver business mail, a modern silhouette
Minaudière: a small rectangular evening bag, usually hard-bodied, sometimes held inside a soft fabric bag that serves as a sleeve
Muff: a winter bag made of real or faux fur, wool or velvet that has zippered compartments and a slip opening for hands
Pocketbook: small purse, rectangular shape
Pouch: small bag such as a pocket, teabag, money bag, sporran, etc.
Saddle purse: shaped like a horse saddle, may have equestrian motifs and hardware to emphasize the design
Satchel: a soft-sided case usually of leather
