Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a total bag hag. I mean, really, give me a good bag over clothes, shoes and jewellery any day. We all know about iconic classics that every woman should have in her arsenal (Hermès Birkin, Chanel 2.55, Gucci Jackie etc) but every few years there are new models which instantly place themselves on must-have lists.
There are 5 such bags which have been on my radar for a few years now and I can’t wait to add them my bag collection. Have a look:
The Saint Laurent Sac du Jour is a classic structured shape that is reminiscent of the Birkin, with a bit more polish. Available in 3 sizes and a variety of exotic skins, this has been my favourite bag since it was released and I want one in every colour. The Chanel Boy bag is Karl Lagarfeld’s homage to Coco Chanel’s great love Boy Capel. The bag has a more urban, modern feel than its predecessor – the iconic flap bag. The Louis Vuitton Petite Malle (Mini Trunk) is the most gorgeous of the smaller sized bags made available in the last year. Making its appearance in Nicolas Ghesquière’s debut A/W14 show for the brand, the Petite Malle is a throwback to the label’s original travel trunks. The Bulgari Serpenti bag made its debut in 2012, paying tribute to the classic Serpenti watch. This shoulder bag has an elegance unmatched by any other shoulder bag out there, I love the jeweled Serpent head closure and gold chain strap. Last but not least we have the Fendi 2Jours. This bag and I have a strong love connection. Like the Sac du Jour it is a classic, structured shape that comes in a variety of colours and exotic skins.
