9 Best Luxury Bags
Of course, I had to start off my luxury bags list with the famous Bottega Veneta leather bags. I’ve been seeing their bags all over Pinterest and Instagram—I’m obsessed.
They have such unique designs that I feel will look timeless with everything.
The Jodie Mini is one of the classic Bottega Veneta shoulder bags—this is the one you’ve probably seen on Instagram. It comes in so many different colors, about 12 options to be exact.
If you’re looking for some more color options, I’ve seen some available on other shop pages. I would recommend doing some research beforehand.
The bag is made in Italy with 50% lambskin and 50% calfskin. The leather is more of a soft leather that feels like butter making it super luxe.
Depending on the color you get, the hardware may be a gold or silver finish. The bag retails at $1,900, which is definitely on the pricier side.
However, I definitely think it’s worth the investment because it’s made with quality leather that will last you years and years. The Jodie also has a timeless hobo bag style design that compliments any outfit.
You can easily dress up or down an outfit as long as you add in your Jodie Mini as an accessory. The only downside to the Mini is that it can be a little small for some people and everyday use.
I would recommend if you love this style is to upgrade to the regular size, Jodie. The Jodie is way more spacious and will take up more of your arm.
The Padded Cassette is another popular option. It has an elegant and simple design that pairs perfectly with any outfit.
If you’ve been on the hunt for one of the best crossbody bags, the padded cassette is the one you’ve been looking for. You can pick between 16 different colors on the website, the white is personally my fav.
I think you can really never go wrong with a black or white bag—it’s a classic. It’s made out of 100% lambskin and has gold finishes.
The padded design almost reminds me of the classic Chanel bags but is more modern.
It’s decently sized and can fit all the essentials. The bag comes with an adjustable strap, which is the best part in my opinion since you can carry it around more easily.
You really can’t go wrong with this timeless bag, but I do recommend making a pros and cons list before buying it for yourself.
Can’t have a luxury bags round-up without LV! Louis Vuitton is known for being that fashionable and iconic designer handbag brand. They have every handbag size you can think of.
They even have other accessories like wallets, shoes, fragrances, jewelry, and so much more.
The Neverfull MM is Louis Vuitton’s signature tote bag. I’m sure you’ve seen this style for years—it’s a classic.
It comes in a few different materials, but the Damier Azur is my personal favorite. For colors, you have the option to pick out the shade for the inner lining.
If you’re someone who likes to carry around everything like your laptop and tablet this is the perfect tote bag for all the essentials. You could even opt to use this as your work bag and you’ll look chic AF doing it.
I love that this leather tote isn’t bulky and comes with side laces to adjust how loose you want the main opening to be. The handles are really slim so you can easily slide them on and off your shoulder.
The totes also come with a removable pouch that can be used as a clutch, extra pocket, wallet, or whatever you want. I love that it basically acts as an additional accessory.
The bag retails for $1,690, which I personally think is more reasonable compared to all the other designer bag options I’ve shown so far.
I think this bag is worth the investment considering you’re getting a larger leather bag and it comes with an additional pouch to compliment the bag, and you’ll be able to use it for so many different occasions.
The Neverful is a great work tote for the office, day bag when you’re running around town—I’ve even seen some friends use it as a diaper bag.
I’m sure you’ve seen the Pochette line—I always see them being styled on Pinterest and Insta. I think this Multi Pochette style is so cute and more practical than the minis.
You can shop a few different styles of this bag and it comes in a few different colors. I would personally opt for the Monogram Empreinte Leather and get either the cream or black color.
This style feels more timeless and neutral to style with any outfit. You’re also getting a 2 in 1 with this bag because it can detach from each other and come with 2 different straps.
The first strap is your traditional leather strap and the other is a gorgeous gold chain. The pouches also come in 2 different sizes.
So wear the bag normal or mix it up by detaching them and wearing them alone. You can purchase this iconic bag for $2,570.
I think the pricing is pretty worth it considering you’re getting 2 bags in 1. The quality is amazing and the bag is spacious to hold the essentials.
Yves Saint Laurent
Yves Saint Laurent is another popular luxury designer that you’ll find in a lot of fashion bloggers’ closets. They’re best known for their gorgeous clothing collections and handbags.
When I think of luxury bags, I think of YSL.
The Lou Camera Bag in Quilted Leather is an adorable crossbody style bag. It comes with an adjustable leather strap and the leather tassel is removable if you don’t love it styled with an outfit.
It’s made out of 100% calfskin leather and feels so soft. There’s plenty of space to keep all your essentials for everyday use.
It also comes in a few different colors giving you plenty of options to choose from. I think the shape and style of the bag are timeless so you don’t have to worry about it going out of style.
You can dress the bag up or down‚—it’s really perfect. You can purchase the bag at $1,350, which is around the same price as the other designers.
I feel like this bag is worth the investment because of the quality leather and the size of the bag. This is the kind of style you pass down to your kids.
I’m obsessed with the LouLou Small, especially the chain strap detailing. Everything about this bag feels so luxe.
If you couldn’t already tell, I’m in love with quilted detailing. I think it really elevates the look of a bag.
The overall structure of the bag is very classy and neutral making it a great option for everyday wear. It comes in 8 different colors that style well with everything.
It’s made with 100% calfskin leather and has gorgeous metal hardware. The bag is priced at $2,090, which is slightly more than the Lou Camera Bag but I think it’s reasonable because it’s bigger.
It also comes with slightly more compartments to store any smaller items.
The iconic Gucci—of course, I had to include them on this roundup. I’m sure you’ve seen Gucci everywhere when it comes to making a fashion statement.
It’s hard not to fall in love with all their shoes, accessories, and bags.
If you’re looking for luxury bags that will make more of a statement, this is it. I’m in love with this dusty rose color.
I feel like you can never go wrong with pink. This is the perfect shade of pink that pairs well with a lot of different colors and acts like a neutral.
The chevron print makes this bag unique and adds texture. It’s fun to mix things up from the traditional smooth leather look.
The strap is so cute with chain detailing towards the bottom. I really like the gold detailing as well.
This bag is priced at $1,490, which is pretty reasonable compared to the rest of the bags on this list. It’s pretty spacious and made with a lot of attention to detail.
The Jackie 1961 Small Shoulder Bag is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Gucci recently reintroduced this bag with small enhancements like the detachable shoulder strap, buckle closure, and a second strap.
It comes in a few different colors but the white leather is my personal fav—it’s chef’s kiss so good. I’m in love with the hobo style structure it feels very on-trend right now.
The gold-toned hardware adds the perfect touch of glam and chic. You can easily style this bag with anything.
I can imagine throwing on a pair of jeans with a super cute top and then adding this bag to tie everything together.
This bag is pricey at $2,500, which is more expensive than most bags this size. I think you really can’t go wrong with investing in this bag, however, I do think you should ask yourself if you’re going to wear it enough to get your money’s worth out of it.
Last but not least, I thought I would include Stella McCartney and her luxury sustainable fashion brand.
I know when you think of luxury bags, you’re thinking leathered goods, but Stella’s company follows a cruelty-free ethos.
All of her handbags are made with vegan leather, meaning no animals are harmed in the process. If you’ve been on the hunt for a luxe vegan leather bag, Stella has some amazing options.
I had to include another Hobo-style bag—the shape is so timeless. This Medium Zip Hobo Shoulder Bag comes in 2 colors: clay and black.
I’m in love with the braided adjustable strap on the side—it gives it a more grungey look. The logo is gold embossed to make it look more luxurious.
I do think this bag is the most expensive at $1,295 for vegan leather. However, you’re paying for the aethics behind the brand, which is really important.
It’s made with 56% polyurethane and 44% polyester. Overall, I do think this bag is worth the investment because it’s gorgeous and will never go out of style.
Those were all my favorite designer handbags. I hope this helped you narrow things down or inspired you on your next shopping trip!
