Chances are, you’ve lusted after a designer bag at one point or another (okay, probably a lot more than that). And while getting Hermes’s most iconic bag may seem like a pipe dream, the most affordable designer bag may be within reach- or at the very least, a little more attainable for your budget.
It goes without saying that adding a stylish, well-made bag to your wardrobe can put a dent into your bank account – let alone one from a major brand name in the industry. However, it doesn’t have to be quite the strain on your wallet as you might expect. In fact, if you’re ready to add a small piece of luxury into your wardrobe, there are some styles that might fall within your price range.
Gucci 1955 Horsebit Mini Leather-Trimmed Printed Coated-Canvas Tote
Gucci’s tote is modelled after an archival design from 1955 and still feels modern today, which is proof that this mini version will never go out of style. Made in Italy from the house’s signature monogrammed coated-canvas, it’s outlined with smooth leather and punctuated with the house’s iconic ‘Horsebit’ hardware. The base is grounded by protective metal feet.
Fendi Moonlight Bag
Following the success of the iconic Shopper, the Fendi Sunshine welcomes a new shape in the family, the Moonlight bag, launched for the first time on the Fendi Spring/Summer 2021 catwalk. Named after its half-moon shape, this compact satchel bag with a clean top-line stays true to the Sunshine Shopper by featuring all its distinctive codes.
Medium Tina Bag in Lilac Suede
Like the muse who inspired it, model Tina Tunakey (who is the brand ambassador alongside her husband Vincent Kassel), the Tina bag knows how to be elegant and racy but also relaxed and playful. Tina by The Kooples is a sophisticated yet rock and roll leather goods line, designed by women, for women.
Saint Laurent Solferino Medium Leather Shoulder Bag
Saint Laurent’s ‘Solferino’ shoulder bag is such a chic, timeless style. It’s been crafted in Italy from supple leather in a satchel shape and topped with a gleaming ‘YSL’ logo plaque. The roomy interior is fitted with a slip pocket and holder for your most-used card.
Adidas Mini Airliner Bag
Dress for your destination, even if you’re travelling light. This adidas Mini Airliner bag has an elegant look with a synthetic leather build and “The brand with the Three Stripes” in three languages on the side. Slip your small essentials inside and enjoy hands-free ease wherever you roam.
