Our luxury handbag brands

Exceptional creations, timeless ‘it bags’, new collections and so many high-end accessories to create a unique style.
Since Daniel Lee took over as artistic director in 2018, Bottega Veneta has been on a roll. While respecting the house’s heritage and expertise, the designer has turned the Milanese label into the most popular luxury brand of recent seasons. This success is partly thanks to contemporary silhouettes with unexpected details and ultra-desirable accessories. The most iconic of them all is the nappa leather Cassette bag, which takes its inspiration from luxury cars of the 1970s. Famous for its hand-woven, quilted look, this bag is available in a range of vibrant colours, including the instantly recognisable Bottega Veneta green.
For Saint Laurent, Anthony Vacarello designs a pure wardrobe based on elegant silhouettes, in keeping with the image of the French house created in 1961 by its emblematic designer: Yves Saint Laurent. The luxury accessory lines exude modern elegance, with a rebellious touch. One of the brand’s ‘it bags’ is the Sac de Jour. With its simple, modern, timeless design, it quickly became one of the most sought-after bags in the world.
The daring and visionary house of Balenciaga never ceases to surprise with its androgynous collections designed by artistic director Demna Gvasalia. True to the house’s legacy, the designer, who has headed the brand since 2015, reinterprets the famous Classic bag that shook up the fashion world with its rock and roll design, supple leather and studded and fringed details. The Classic remains as iconic as ever, and is now reinvented in new sizes and new finishes. A must-have for handbag connoisseurs.
Prada embodies Italian luxury and refinement. The Milanese company quickly established itself as a leader with its innovative yet timeless collections. Easily recognisable among many others, thanks to its iconic silhouette crafted in Saffiano leather and metal logo, the Galleria handbag is emblematic of the house’s modern, refined spirit.
With Jonathan Anderson heading up the Madrid-based fashion house’s artistic team, Loewe fascinates with its sunny collections that draw on its heritage. Loewe uses noble materials, avant-garde cuts and colourful silhouettes to create daring, offbeat pieces. In terms of ‘it-bags’, Loewe’s Amazona needs no introduction. Designed in 1975, it is still as contemporary as ever, featuring fine leather and a timeless rectangular shape. For the past few seasons, soft leather puzzle bags with geometric lines have also been a hit with trendsetters.
Since the arrival of artistic director Alessandro Michele, Gucci has been shaking up the rules of high-end Italian fashion. The Florence-based house of Gucci brings a romantic elegance to its designs. One of the house’s iconic pieces is the Jackie bag, a tribute to Jackie Kennedy. It has been reinvented in a multitude of colours and materials since its creation. Carry this symbol of neo-bourgeois style for a one-of-a-kind look.
In 2004, the artistic director of Chloé debuted the Paddington bag. It soon became the most prized ‘it bag’ among fashionable women. The Paddington stands out from the crowd thanks to its padlock and rock and roll style, which ensure a chic yet casual look. The Paddington has since become the Aby bag; as cool and desirable as ever, it goes with all your everyday looks.
