When you spend a ton on a designer bag you want to make sure that you can wear it season after season and that it keeps its value for years. The it-bag has never gone out of style, that's why we provided you with a list of the ultimate it-bags of 2016.
1. Gucci Dionysus
Many people considered the Supreme Canvas outdated in the last couple of years but Alesandro Michele, the new creative director, has truly revived the iconic print. Michele designed a tiger head lock and bulky chain straps, for a modern and recognizable piece. We are especially in love with the beaded and the hand-painted version. The Dionysus has received a lot of attention from fashion bloggers and celebrities and is definitely one of the most popular bags of 2016.
2. Chloé Faye Medium Leather Shoulder Bag
you've probably started seeing this Chloé bag everywhere — and that's only going to continue into 2016. The Chloé Faye Bag is quite simple and timeless in design, but still has that quintessential Chloé vibe.
3. Louis Vuitton Petite Malle
This year the Monogram canvas is back in popular demand. One of the most adorable bags with the siganture print is the highly sought after Petite Malle bag, which is designed like a miniature version of the iconic Louis Vuitton trunk. We suspect a reinterpretation of such an important piece of the fashion house's legacy will have a lasting popularity. It comes in different sizes and materials, including glass, fiber, ultralight carbon, aluminium and copper.
4. Lady Dior Nano
Like we said before, miniature designs remain a great invest. Especially when they're a mini version of a classic, such as the Lady Dior Nano. Just like its bigger sister, we believe the Nano will retain it's value over time. So no need to further second-guess investing in one of these babies.
5. Louis Vuitton Palm Springs backpack
Backpacks have been making waves in high fashion these days. Many designer brands are introducing backpacks, including Louis Vuitton with its Palm Springs backpack which is part of the Cruise 2016 version. One of the celebrities who was spotted with the bag is Kylie Jenner. With its classic Monogram print we suspect this backpack to be just as popular as the iconic Chanel backpacks.
6. Mansur Gravriel Mini Lady Bag
You might want to add yourselves to the waitlists, because Mansur Gavriel's designers Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel's minimalistic leather handbags line are becoming very succesful worldwide. The brand still produces in limited circulation which means that a Mansur Gavriel piece will be quite hard to come by.
