The Top Ten Most Popular Designer Bags

By Lori on Aug 27 2015

CHANEL 2.55

Coco Chanel was tired of having to hold her everyday bag around all the time. So she took inspiration from the straps found on soldiers’ bags. Soon after she introduced the resulting design to the market in 1929. After it's monumental success, she decided to update the design. Coco called the new version the 2.55 after the date of creation, February 1955.

The bag that will never go out of style. Soft, black, beloved leather and those interlocking C’s, this will be love at first sight that lasts a lifetime. This is the perfect hands free bag for a night out.

THE CELINE PHANTOM LUGGAGE TOTE

Even though the Celine phantom appeared on our fashion radar a few years back now, the appeal of owning one never wears. This celebrity favourite has been on the arms from The Olsens, Chiara Ferragni to Fergie. The Luggage tote's greatness is in it's simplicity in design. A generous size, practical shape and hard wearing leather. It's the perfect everyday bag, but more importantly it's the BEST carry on bag for your next trip..

LOUIS VUITTON NEVERFULL

Neverfull - Named for its size. Comes in various sizes, PM, MM and GM and multiple patterns, such as Damier Ebene, Damier Azur, Epi, Mon Monogram and Monogram Idylle.

THE BALENCIAGA CITY BAG

A bag that's popularity has powered through over a decade. Since Alexander Wang took the creative director reins from Nicolas Ghesquiere in 2012, the brand has continued to rise to the top through its innovative and eye catching designs.

The Balenciaga City is the Olsen's and Nicole Richie's original IT bag. To say this bag is an investment piece is an understatement. It's chic and easy to wear, an all seasoner.

HERMES BIRKIN

The most expensive and hard to obtain handbag in the world. If you're after the signature Birkin in Hermes orange, you could be looking at sitting on the waiting list for at least 6 months.

The handbag has a rather interesting history behind it though. It all started when English actress & singer Jane Birkin sat next to Jean-Louis Dumas (CEO of Hermes) on a plane. READ THE STORY HERE
