Can we have them all please?
With a rise of slow fashion and move towards more sustainable shopping habits, more of us are looking to investment pieces.
A carefully selected designer bag can last a lifetime and even become a valuable piece to pass down through generations.
Putting the classics aside such as the Dior Saddle bag, Fendi Peekaboo, Prada Galleria, Hermes Birkin and Chanel’s classic flap bag, the SS19 season is packed with fantastical accessories that could become the next must-have.

Valentino Garavani VRING bags, created by Pierpaolo Piccioli and launched during the Women’s SS19 show, are representations of the classic women’s bag with a modern twist – note the new bold V logo.
Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton also looked to the archives with Anthony Vaccarello creating the Le 61 bag with the original silhouette designed by the house almost 60 years ago, while Nicolas Ghesquière presents an update on the House’s historical Cannes beauty case with a Cannes handbag that embraces a refined vintage vibe.

Givenchy’s Whip bag – named so after the heritage art of whip-making – was designed to sit close to the body and comes in a variety of finishes.
Mini bag from By Far at Level Shoes continues to fuel our fancy for the micro trend, meanwhile it’s all fun and art when you have an Azzedine Alaia Marie leather bag in hand.
Which is your favourite?
