Mar, 2017 | THE STYLELIST | 0 comments

As 2016 draws to an end and Christmas is nearly upon us, this is definitely the time to spend wisely.  With an ever growing wish list and luxury fashion retailers constantly enticing us with their wares, we’ve rounded up a guide highlighting 7 handbags which we believe are great investment pieces for the modern millennial.

THE CHANEL CLASSIC FLAP BAG – Prices starting from £3,000

This bag, having stood the test of time following its first release in 1955, is guaranteed to make you the star of the show.  Being donned by everyone from Bella Thorne to Dakota Fanning, this classic piece comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours that suits many occasions.  Plus, it holds its value really well meaning that because Chanel regularly increases its prices, you can sell it in future for a significant profit.  In other words, ditch* your ISA and invest in the Chanel Classic Flap Bag!


This Fendi Dot Com leather bag with the floral appliqué from their AW16 collection is also one of our favourites.  The delicate stitching and floral detail provides a mature but playful look making it a perfect addition to your wardrobe.

PRADA CAHIER BAG – Prices starting from £1,780

The pure sophistication of the Prada Cahier bag from their AW16 collection makes it a must-have as it embodies Prada’s stance on modern femininity. Although it’s not roomy enough to be a day bag, it’s definitely perfect for a cocktail evening or date night. It also comes in a variety of colours including black, caramel, red and white so there is something to suit each taste.


Loewe’s Puzzle Bag is where creativity meets comfort. Jonathan Anderson’s innovative design stands out from the rest of the crowd because it can be worn in 5 different ways thereby giving you a new look for each day of the working week. With approval from numerous fashion bloggers and influencers including Miroslava Duma, founder of Buro24/7, this bag is definitely worth investing in.


This is one of the first bags that comes to our mind when we think of LV. Spotted on everyone from runway models to Selena Gomez, the iconic Louis Vuitton Twist MM Bag designed by Nicholas Ghesquiere sent Instagram to a massive frenzy and we definitely still can’t get enough!


A slightly more ‘affordable’ bag, this J.W Anderson Pierce Bag is a masterpiece especially if you’re a minimalist. Team this bag with monochrome pieces for a mature and sophisticated look!

CHLOÉ DREW BAG – Prices start from £750

Last, but definitely not the least, is the Chloé Drew Bag. We have featured this bag numerous times on our Instagram account including here and here. This bag has been a hit since its release and was spotted on many fashion bloggers unsurprisingly due to its classy but convenient shape/size and a wide range of colours to choose from.
