From super-sized totes, bumbags and micro-pouches to timeless classics, shop our pick of the best new season designer handbags
The latest designer handbags ticking all the SS19 trends have dropped, and there’s no better time than the present to invest in one. Now I appreciate it’s a big purchase, so to save you time and effort, I’ve rounded-up the best designer handbags from the new season that suit all tastes, styles, daily needs and budgets (yes, really).
If there is one piece worthy of investment each season, it has to be a designer handbag (and if you don’t believe me, some brands like Chanel are literally a better financial investment than gold). And while many designers are on-trend with their offering, there are also some classic styles that never go out of fashion out there too.
The best arm candy for SS19 ranges from the super-sized, with the coolest carry-alls in every colour, prints and texture imaginable – of course the basket bag is back for summer – to must-have micros, the cute bags that are tiny yet perfectly formed. Invest in these for minimal effort, with maximum impact – Fendi and Jacquemus have some great picks.
We’re obsessed with Longchamp’s newly launched monogram LGP, previewed at the AW19 Show at NYFW in February. For it, Maison Longchamp has imagined LGP, an architectural game with a very graphic version of the letters to compose its iconic name.
We’re keeping things tonal this season and investing in some pretty arm candy in pastel shades of mint and blue, with a touch of cream and butter yellow – Strathberry and Chloé have some divine vanilla options.
If your heart is set on something a little sleeker and modern, then do check out Daniel Lee’s first two designs for Bottega Veneta: the Maxi Cabat and The Pouch are part of the SS19 collection.
You also can’t go wrong with a Loewe Gate, Mulberry Hampstead or Stella McCartney Falabella (in periwinkle blue for spring) – these beautiful bags will pay for themselves when you work out the cost per wear.
Do also check out Rixo’s new venture into handbags, they are just the right side of vintage, with gorgeous prints and gold shell hardware detailing. Finally, if you’re feeling nostalgic, do go down the retro route with a Dior saddle bag or Fendi baguette. Iconic.
