I have loved handbags for as long as I can remember. Let me help you pick out your dream bag!

Celine Monogram Bags

After the departure of Phoebe Philo, Celine hired their new creative director, Hedi Slimane. Celine's aesthetics completely changed with the arrival of Hedi. No longer the sophisticated high end brand with no visible logos, Celine released many logo handbags. Just look at the popular Ava bag in Celine monogram! Lisa Blackpink, the K-pop superstar, loves this bag. Now, Celine has a whole line of monogram handbags. The practical Folco bag in monogram is a very good everyday bag that is not too big or too small. It's really the perfect size for all your items.


Louis Vuitton Sac Plat in Monogram

Are you going to buy a designer bag that resembles a shopping tote? This is the the new trend in the fashion world. Many high end designers released bags that look like a shopping bag but with their brand logo on it. Louis Vuitton's Sac Plat in monogram is really trendy and practical at the same time. That's why the Sac Plat is so popular. It is available in several sizes, from big to very small.

Christian Dior Book Tote

Are big bags coming back in fashion? Maybe! Christian Dior's Book Tote has been very successful in the fashion world. Available in mini, small, and regular size, the most popular size for the Dior Book Tote is actually the regular size. This tote bag is a very functional piece that fits everything in your life. You can customize the Book Tote at the Dior store by adding your name on it. Even though the Book Tote is not made of leather, it still looks super elegant and sophisticated at the same time.


Chanel 19

The Chanel 19 is here to stay since its initial release in 2019. Even though it's the newest addition to the house of Chanel, it has already gained a very loyal following. Priced below the Chanel classic flap bag, it is by no means cheap. With Chanel's steep price increases year after year, it is really wise to buy Chanel bags at the earliest time possible. Unlike the classic flap, the Chanel 19 is more casual. With super soft lambskin, this bag looks like fluffy clouds.


Chanel Wallet on Chain

It's no secret that Chanel is huge in high fashion. The Wallet on Chain is not yet a classic like the Chanel Flap bags. But it is still a very coveted designer handbag that most women want to have in their collection. Perfect for a date night when you don't need to carry the whole kitchen sink with you. This compact little handbag will add style to any outfit. The very small CC logo makes it more understated than regular Chanel handbags.

Bottega Veneta Cassette Bags

Do you love the look of interwoven leather? Bottega Veneta is known for its luxurious interwoven leather handbags. To continue with their legacy, Bottega Veneta released the cassette and padded cassette bags. Cassette bags are 2 dimensional while the padded cassette bags are more 3 dimensional with very puffy squares a little bit similar to the Chanel quilted lambskin. If you are more understated, opt for the regular cassette bags. But when you want a more statement bag, go for the padded cassette instead.


Celine Triomphe Bag

Celine Triomphe bag is similar to the box bag but designed with the classic triomphe clasp as the opening. Celine's new creative director, Hedi Slimane, saw the chain that is used to wrap around the Arc de Triomphe. He immediately thought that the chain logo represented the Celine brand. Nowadays, Celine Triomphe bag features this detail as the opening clasp of the bag. How clever? Hedi transformed the understated Celine box bag into something that represents France and Celine at the same time.


Gucci 1961 Jackie Bag

This Gucci 1961 Jackie bag is a re-release of the classic version loved by the then first lady, Jackie O. This is a minimalist handbag that only features one metal clasp as the opening. The Jackie 1961 is perfect bag for everyday use. Also, Gucci added lots of different colors and patterns to this line. If you want a signature Gucci handbag, go for the Gucci monogram with the red and green color strips. But for a more understated look, go for a leather Jackie 1961.


Fendi Nano Baguette Charm

Fendi's iconic Baguette bag now available in a miniature version. Do you still remember that Carrie Bradshaw's Fendi Baguette was mugged in Sex and the City? The Baguette bag is making a comeback in the fashion world. To chase the mini bag trend, Fendi released the extremely cute and small Nano Baguette Charm. This little bag comes with a delicate metal chain that can turn it into a mini crossbody bag. It also features a little clasp which you can attach to a larger handbag preferably the regular sized Baguette bag. This well made little charm bag comes in many different colors and patterns.


Chloe Woody Tote

Chloe is a brand that is known for its French and bohemian elements. With several well known and talented creative directors, Chloe had a few super hot trendy bags in the past. Lately, Chloe is again breaking the fashion news with the Woody tote bag. With a mostly canvas material and light weight, the Woody tote is perfect for a carefree day. Also, the comparatively lower price is a good selling point during pandemic times. This canvas tote is all over YouTube, Instagram, and fashion blogs!
