We’re all about scarlet when it comes to the latest purses

There is something so tempting about a shiny, red object. Perhaps a hint of devilish danger? Definitely a strong statement-maker, the hue is not necessarily a go-to choice for the reticent or retiring.
This season’s most covetable bags all have the shade in common. Lipstick red, cherry rouge, hottest chili. We selected the best red purses — from Bottega Veneta’s artfully sculpted clutch to Miu Miu’s easygoing pouch, Valentino’s romantic, flowered satchel or Alexander McQueen’s slick, quilted shoulder bag — and have decided sometimes it’s good to be caught red-handed.
MIU MIU bag, $2,050.
BOTTEGA VENETA BV Whirl clutch, $1,980.
VALENTINO GARAVANI Atelier 03 Rose Edition bag, $2,900.
OSCAR DE LA RENTA Mini TRO crossbody bag, $1,790.
ALEXANDER McQUEEN The Story shoulder bag, $2,890.
TORY BURCH Lee Radziwill saddlebag, $658.
BALMAIN B-Buzz 23 bag, $1,950.
