Today there are as many assorted designs of bags as there are women, which means that everyone can find their ideal match. So much more than a mere practical accessory in which to carry around your belongings, a bag is the finishing touch to any outfit and represents an invaluable piece for all women. The major brands understand that and put all their creativity, audacity and innovation into creating unique designs season after season. From backpacks to miniature round bags and belt bags, different designs have succeeded one another front and centre and surfed on the latest trends. Other formats like saddle bags and totes are timeless and get revisited with each new collection.
Luxury pieces which have made their mark on fashion history.
In a few decades, thanks to statement pieces from the leading luxury labels, bags have become real objects of lust. In France, fashion houses like Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Hermès, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Chloé all propose high quality designs using the most beautiful leathers on the planet. Every last detail has been taken care of and the finishes are impeccable. Leather goods is also a field in which the leading Italian brands specialise. Gucci, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana and Prada are all proof if proof were needed. Let us not forget to mention the House of Burberry, a British stalwart, and Loewe, one of the leading Spanish labels.
Every one of the long-established major fashion houses has managed to create an iconic design, which is still lusted after by women everywhere. At Dior, how can we not mention the Saddle Bag, shaped like a horse-rider's seat, which drew its inspiration directly from the equestrian world. The Timeless by Chanel is a real gem which all the world's leading celebrities are more than proud to carry. It embodies the brand's DNA thanks to the quilted leather, the use of a chain and the presence of the two letter Cs. Hermès has also made a strong statement with an iconic bag which is only available if you put your name on a waiting list. The bag in question is the Kelly bag, a truly timeless classic, named thus in homage to the Princess Grace Kelly.
