I must confess that my biggest crush may be not my boyfriend but a Chanel bag. I have this thing with bags, expensive bags. My boyfriend finds it absolutely ridiculous, but I can’t help myself. If I could, I would probably buy every bag in the world. And I hear you thinking (together with my mom and boyfriend) why designer bags? Well, I don’t know. A friend of mine lately made a joke about it and I think she might be right. (She has this thing too) and she just said very calm: You know, we just have the Expensive Taste Syndrome. We can’t help it. Amen to that my friend.
So, I thought it would be nice to make a bag bucket list and show it to you. Hereby my top 5 designer bags.
Louis Vuitton Speedy
This bag is on my wish list for as long as I can remember. This is in my opinion the most classic and timeless bag ever. This beauty is born in 1932 and was an instant success. It was brought on the market as the smaller version of the keepall and came in the sizes 30, 35 and 40. Audrey Hepburn requested to make a smaller version, the one we know as the 25. The bag comes in several styles but the Damier Ebene is my personal favourite.
Chanel Classic Bag
Is there any woman in the world who doesn’t want a Chanel bag? Chanel is the most luxurious brand in the world and that comes unfortunately with a price. But I do see it as in investment. This bag will never go out of style and it will never lose his value. On the contrary it will only go up in value. Isn’t that nice 😉
Dior tote bag
This is my personal favourite from the list. This bag is handy, stylish, in my favourite colour and absolutely fabulous. Without doubt the most precious bag. This bag was introduced by creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri and is now a true icon for the well-known Dior style.
Dior lady Dior
Princess Diana and the Lady Dior bag. It’s just one and the same. Launched in 1994 without an official name. But one year later, France’s first lady, Bernadette Chirac, gave this bag to Princess Diana. And she loved it so much she ordered it in every possible option. And by then the name for this popular bag was born. In 1996 it was officially renamed to the ‘Lady Dior’ bag, with her blessing.
Hermes Birkin Bag
This bag is so exclusive that it probably will always be on my bucket list and never will be reality but hey, that is totally fine. For years there was a long waiting list for this bag. A few years ago, they finally let go of that list. Which makes it a bit (just a tiny little bit) easier to purchase one.
