5 classic bags to suit every occasion

Handbags are one of the most intricate and delicately crafted pieces that a person can own. There is so much beauty in those fine stitching’s that run the edge of the bag that I know that I could look at a bag forever and still not spot all those fine details that have been handcrafted with a stunning vision in mind. The ingenious minds behind classic bags are in the class of the most respected designers in the fashion industry and are truly idols of mine which I could only hope to meet one day. The artistry of a classic bag ages like a fine wine, becoming more eloquent and appreciated with age. Of course, you can never go wrong with a classic bag and are unquestionably the first pieces that I will be investing in. These famous bags suit every occasion and without even trying become the attention stealer of every outfit, so with that in mind let’s go through my comprehensive list of handbags that every fanatic should consider.

Chanel boy bag

I of course must start with a bag that quickly became an icon in the realm of handbags. Inspired by Coco Chanel’s adoration to employ masculine aesthetics, this bag has risen to the top of must-have bags. The large flap with the embellished CC logo has rested on the arm and shoulders of many, firmly solidifying itself among the best of the classics. My love for this bag runs deep and has always been a goal of mine to own one myself one day. I need not explain the versatility of this bags as I think one peep at this bag will do the trick. The exquisiteness of this handbag is so hard to relay in words but believe me when I say that I would be hard pushed to find a bag that matches the timelessness of the Chanel boy bag.

Chanel in every color, please!:

Lady Dior bag

This bag is not only iconic but has a history that is beautifully heart-warming. This gorgeous bag, created by the masterful Christian Dior was attributed to the late Princess Diana in 1996 in honour of her love for this bag and has since become a signature piece of the Dior fashion house. The femininity of the quilted exterior is so elegant and polished that it’s clear why the Lady Dior bag has become a classic piece within the fashion industry. I adore this bag for the beautiful range of colours and sizes that it comes in which is always accented with the memorable Dior hardware. Lady Dior is a bag that once in your collection will always be omnipresent piece that will be hard to ignore styling daily.

ChloƩ Drew bag

This bag has been dubbed the ‘It bag’ countless times and it’s understandable why. ChloĆ© pioneered by Clare Waight Keller has launched this brand to astronomical heights and has created a bag that has stolen my heart, the Drew bag. The Drew bag has become a quick classic, solidifying its reign in 2015 by adding a bohemian flavour to many wardrobes across the industry. There is an inexplicable romanticism to this bag that has drawn me to this bag since I first clasped eyes on it.  The Drew bag is a product of a reinvented saddle bag that comes in an array of colours and is always accented with the classic gold clasp that is timeless. The long gold chain allows this bag to be worn several ways for countless occasions making this a classic bag in my books.

Louis Vuitton Capucines

This bag like the Drew bag is a new addition to the classics. This bag pays tribute to the first Louis Vuitton Maison which resided on the iconic rue Nueve-des-Capucines in 1854 which signifies the roots and heart of where this brand began. This bag embodies luxury and exuberant class which has immediately launched it as a classic bag that has become a timeless piece in just a few years. Naturally this bag is embellished with the lux LV logo that is central to the aesthetic of this brand and is further surrounded with supple leather handcrafted to perfection. Capucines represents Louis Vuitton perfectly as a brand and establishes the timelessness and versatility of a LV handbag.

Valentino rockstud spike chain bag

This bag will inject the perfect amount of beautifully crafted punk into a wardrobe, no wonder it has become a classic handbag.  The fashion house governed by Pier Paolo Piccioli has created this lavish handbag collection that paired with their iconic heels is a pairing made in heaven. As the name suggests this bag is gilded in rock studs which is a finish that has Valentino written all over it. The long gold chain and the compact size employs this bag as a piece that can be adorned day in and day out, toughing up any look. There is not any occasion or event that this bag couldn’t be worn for and will provide the finishing touches that only a classic handbag could provide.
