‘Tis the season for giving and if you know someone who loves bags, you can’t go wrong with one of these six beautiful options; they will be coveted way past the Christmas holiday, in fact, they will be loved all the way through 2021. All of these are on my Christmas list.
These bags have been shortlisted as they can be part of a dressed down outfit or help turn up the volume. Despite the different colour ways, all will raise the profile of any outfit throughout next year. Bag a beauty today in time for December 25th.
Bold is beautiful
The brighter the better when it comes to prints next year and the Spanish brand Bimba y Lola has the answer. Checkout the fashion trends for 2021 to see that vibrant prints are on the spring and summer agenda – Versace rocked this look. This is the S padded nylon crossbody bag, priced £105.
Mlouye (pronounced meloy) has a reputation for strong structural bags but the Mini Eddy is a lovely step change to a softer bag. Don’t be deceived by the size, this bag has a couple of internal pockets. There are different colour options but this minimalist colourway will work with many outfits in 2021. Price £288.
Loewe has a reputation for interesting bags and the drawstring hammock bag has side panels that release to change its shape. This is the bag that keeps giving as you can carry it by the top handle, or use the strap for shoulder or crossbody wearing. Price £1700.
If you have a fan of old school Hollywood glamour in your Christmas gift list, head straight to Lulu Guinness. This handbag is named after the British actress, the Oscar winner Joan Fontaine; this is the Black Fontaine handbag. And this bag’s outside luxe look continues inside with a quilted velvet interior. Price £395.
Pretty in pink
Rimowa is a brand that is synonymous with quality luggage, with their dent resistant grooved suitcases on wheels. Now imagine, carrying a mini piece of luggage as a bag. The Desert in rose pink is a hard-shell crossbody bag with the detachable, adjustable leather body strap. This is a luxury bag option, priced at £910.
A couple of designers are adopting a softer side and Marc Jacobs is part of the gang. If anyone on your Christmas gift list has a Snapshot bag, this will be the bag to buy, the Colorblock Softbox bag. This is a deconstruction of the classic box bag. Can be carried by the top handle or removable crossbody strap. Price £405.
These six bag options will wow once unwrapped. This shortlist ranges from £100 to £1700, so there are options for different budgets. And, you’ve got classic black, brights and pastels bags. So save yourself sometime surfing lots of websites as in this summary, you’re bound to find a gem.
