Nothing says luxury quite like smell of new leather and a dust bag stamped Dior. This season has been a treat from the runway. Each designer has presented something truly unique. Everyone has an assortment of luxury handbag brands to choose from.
A bag is often the nucleus of luxury brands. They represent a quintessential piece that embodies the silhouette, leather, prints and embellishments that represent the brand for the season.
Cult brand followers are chomping at the bit for these best luxury designer bags that are trending for the season. From micro bags to clutches and crossbody bags, these are 6 essential pieces you won’t want to miss.
Treat yourself to a taste of luxury with these sumptuous selections worth investing on.
1. Christian Dior Oblique Saddle Bag
Taking over street style by storm, Christian Dior’s new saddle bag is the number 1 pick for the season. Its first classic rendition features a navy jacquard canvas printed with a Dior logo pattern. It is detailed with calfskin leather details. It’s been spotted on celebrities, runways and luxury fashion bloggers countless times since it was first released.
A large hanging “D” drops across the front of the Oblique Saddle Bag; a blatant statement of luxury that no one can deny. There are two strap options, a heavily studded crossbody strap is almost belt-like in appearance. Or, you can default to the subtle arm strap in calfskin.
The Christian Dior Oblique Saddle Bag is also available in a maroon print, as well as several full calfskin colors.
2. Botegga Veneta Pouch
Botegga Veneta delighted us with a completely innovative silhouette. Their newest handbag “The Pouch” is a clutch with a sort of deconstructed look and irresistibly touchable leathers.
The Botegga pouch is crafted with exceptionally supple calfskin, which is the focal point of the bag. A single unit folds up and meets at magnetic frame along the gathered top line. A single compartment, The Pouch is designed in cocooned luxury and reflects Bottega’s heritage with a modern attitude.
It’s now available in an assortment of colors and sizes, ranging from smooth leather to their classic woven leathers.
3. Jaquemus Le Chiquito Mini Bag
If you don’t have a lot to carry, make a deliberately unpractical statement with the Jaquemus Le Chiquito mini bag. Jaquemus turned heads across the world when they launched their smaller than life micro bag collection. Some so small they couldn’t hold more than a dime, this silhouette is for the rebel who doesn’t follow fashion norms.
Fortunately for those who prefer to at least carry credit cards, their assortment of micro bags spans from centimeters to a few inches. That at least allows room for a couple of essentials.
The Le Chiquito bag is handcrafted with rubberized leather with a mini rounded handle. It includes a leather shoulder strap for those that don’t want to carry the bag in their fingertips.
Already sold out in key colors, the Jaquemus golden logo has made a name for itself with this season’s micro luxury handbag innovation.
4. Balenciaga Ville Bag
Logomania is a noteworthy trend of the season. Balenciaga lead the look with their bold Ville handag. This medium sized handbag features the iconic Balenciaga logo hand drawn across the entire span of the bag as the focal point.
The bag itself has a simple, squarish silhouette with rounded top corners and an adjustable removable strap. The top color combos for the season are black on white or white on black.
You can also find an assortment of colors, sizes and silhouette variations available crafted in grained calfskin in nudes, pinks, blues and reds.
5. Marc Jacob’s Softshot Bag
Marc Jacobs brings us luxury at an affordable price with their Softshot Bag available for only $350. This rectangular crossbody bag is crafted in supple natural grain leather.
Inside, you’ll find two zippered sections and a lined interior with slip pockets to fit your wallet. The exterior embellishment is Marc Jacob’s signature broken ring logo as the only feature across the front of the bag.
Color assortments are endless, and with such a timeless silhouette, you might just need one for every look in your wardrobe.
6. Chloé Tess Bag
Back for another season in a big way, the Chloé Tess Bag remains an icon of luxury handbags. The design is marked by the gold ring dangling luxuriously from the magnetic clasp.
Reminiscent of old world equestrian style, it is designed in a rounded saddle bag silhouette. The assortment of colors are crafted in a mix of shiny and suede calfskin.
Fall hues you won’t want to miss include motty grey, sepia brown and autumnal brown. For those who like to live classic on the wild side, there are also croc-embossed variations. Want more equestrian? A few designs feature little horse baroque embroidery.
