The Céline luggage bag, the Chanel boy bag and the Hermes Birkin… These are bags we can only dream of owning. Yet with the news market analysts think we’re about to witness a drop in the price of luxury handbags, this list isn’t all doom and gloom. And even though a Birkin can go for €200,000, you really could be making a financial investment – Birkin bags increase in value by 14.2% on average. That’s better than most stocks.
We’ve put together a lust list of the first bags we’d buy if we won the lottery along with the lucky duck celebrities who own them.
Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour, €2,350.00, BrownThomas.com
The Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour bag is owned by Angelina Jolie, Kate Moss, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz to name a few and was first created in 2013. We love the Birkin-esqe shape.
Givenchy Lucrezia Star Detail Bag Mini, €1,150.00, BrownThomas.com
Kendall is rarely seen without her Givenchy Lucrezia bag and we love the star detail Lucrezia, available from Brown Thomas.
Chanel Boy Flap Bag, prices start at approx. €3,000, available in Chanel stores.
The bag of our dreams.
Miu Miu Club Bag, €1,680, MiuMiu.com
We love the black nappa quilted Miu Miu Club bag, with a degrade metal chain shoulder strap. Check out Kylie Jenner wearing this bag last week in our gallery above.
Chloé Drew Crossbody Bag,€1,190.00, FarFetch.com
The Chloé Drew bag took over in 2015, seen on celebrities and fashionistas around the globe, and we love the range of colours and prints. See the Instagram of Emma Roberts with her Chloé Drew Bag in the gallery above.
Light Grey Falabella Shaggy Deer Small Tote, €795, StellaMcCartney.com
The Falabella‘s braided chain strap and slouched shape is “a distinctive Stella McCartney signature”. See Demi Lovato and Katy Perry with their Falabella bags at the Stella McCartney Autumn 2016 Presentation here.
Saint Laurent Monogram Shoulder Bag, €1,190.00, FarFetch.com
The Saint Laurent Monogram Shoulder Bag comes in so many colours and sizes that we’d really like any of them, but we particularly like the one above that Gigi Hadid is fond of. Check out the picture of her wearing it in the gallery above.
Céline Micro Luggage Handbag In White, €2,650, available at Brown Thomas Dublin.
The Céline Luggage Bag may be our favourite bag of all time. While we love the classic white and black Céline, we’d also like the buttery nude, and we’d wish we were cool enough to pull off the micro-bag in fluorescent yellow. Really, we love Céline in every colour and every size.
Hermes Birkin Bag, prices range from €9,000 – €200,000, sold exclusively in Hermes stores.
It turns out that a Birkin bag is a better investment than stocks – the bag has increased in value by 500% in the past 35 years, and unlike gold, has never decreased.The value of current bags in expected to double in the next decade. So really, by spending that kind of money on a bag, you could justify it to yourself that you’d be making a great investment. Ahem.
