Bags for special occasions

It doesn’t matter what the special occasion is and what the bag trend of the season is, there is one trusted bag style that will rock the dress or tailored suit in any decade and that’s the top handle bag.  This style of bag is definitely an investment piece.  And here to inspire you is an edit of top handle bags from a variety of designers, 10 in fact offering a range of price points. So if you’re sitting comfortably…

Elegantly understated

From Polene Paris, the Numero Un bag in nano size or from Rylan Studio, the Cognac Satchel in mini size. 

Party time

Looking for a colour pop against a little black dress? Have some fun with the Razor Clam bag from Opening Ceremony. Or go all out for some shine with the Valentino Garavani rhinestone bag!

Wedding or Christening?

Three options to inspire for those glamorous day events when a neutral colour is sought. Starting with the structured Meghan bag from Florian London for a budget option. Followed by a classic, the Peekaboo from Fendi or from the brand with royal connections in Belgium, Delvaux, the Brilliant bag, which has been around since 1958 and is the brand’s iconic bag.

For something a bit different

Top handle bags aren’t all smooth and sleek. Attract some adoring eyes with these textured beauties. Starting with the Queenie bag from Lulu Guinness adorned with Swarovski crystals! Or the lattice weave on the Cybill bag from Munich based brand, Aigner. And last but by no means least, the black and floral embroidery tote bag in nano size from Scottish brand Strathberry.

There you have it, 10 very different styles of top handle bags that will rock those special occasions from a day at the races to a friend’s wedding with glam evening event options too. A great investment bag that will be used again and again for those classic moments.
