Introduced in 2006, the Fendi B Bag became an instant classic. It is identifiable by its two rounded buckles with a repeating Fendi logo on each buckle prong. It comes in several different fabrications. Paris and Nikki Hilton are often spotted carrying a Fendi B Bag.

Bottega Veneta Hobo

Bottega Veneta hobo is elegant and stunning. The brand is known for its chic leather latticework and suede lining on the inside of all bags. But this classy hobo is their best selling product in all sizes. Both Reese Witherspoon and Suzanne Khan are spotted often with this bag.

The Chloe Paddington Bag

The Chloe Paddington Bag in tan brown is and will always remain my first love in handbags. The highlight of the bag is the huge padlock and a key attached to each side of the bag. It has been a staple of Chloe handbag line since it was introduced and is one of the most replicated bags.

Prada Medium Tessuto Ball Hobo

Prada was started in 1913 by Mario Prada and his brother Martino as a leathergoods shop – Fratelli Prada (Prada Brothers) in Milan, Italy. Mario’s granddaughter Miuccia took over the company in 1978 and sales went sky rocketing because of her creativity. She was responsible for introducing the nylon fabric handbags line in 1985 and since then it has become the trademark of the brand. These bags are still in demand in different colours and sizes. The red Medium Tessuto Ball Hobo above is from this line.

The Ferragamo Marisa Bag

The Ferragamo Marisa bag is every day semi formal bag. Over the years, it has become the hallmark of Ferragamo handbag line. The piece is distinguishable by its logo loop closure made out of nickel-plated bronze.

Marc Jacobs Patent Stam Bag

Although Marc Jacobs is a relatively younger handbag brand, its popularity is unbeatable. Marc Jacobs introduced his first line of handbags in 2000 and today he is counted in one of the top elite handbag designers. The brand’s trademark is the Patent Stam Bag recognizable by its quilted leather body and detachable gold chain.

Gucci Jackie O Bag

Created in the late Fifties, the Jackie O bag is an instantly recognizable classic with rounded edges and a signature push lock closure. It features Gucci’s signature monogram logo print and shiny hardware buckle. The style was originally named after Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis after she was spotted many times wearing the bag while working as a consulting editor at Doubleday. This Gucci classic since then became the perfect accessory for a working woman who wants convenience with class.

YSL Downtown Tote

Yves Henri Donat Mathieu Saint Laurent worked for Dior since he was 17. He later came out with his own label in 1962 and retired in 1993. The Downtown Tote from YSL was introduced recently but has become a rage. The odd shaped tote has been spotted on the arms of the biggest celebrities. The bag is distinguishable because of its unusual shape, big size and buckles.

Louis Vuitton Speedy 30

Louis Vuitton is one of the oldest name in the luxury handbags industry. The brand’s trademark monogram canvas was designed by Louis’ son Georges Vuitton in 1896, and is used on one of their most famous designs, the Speedy. Created as a reinterpretation of the Louis Vuitton keepall travel bag, the Speedy comes in different sizes, but the Speedy 30 is especially classic. Although season after season, speedy is reinvented in different colors and sizes, the basic brown Speedy 30 remains a hit.

Dior’s Lady Dior Classic

And finally, the bag that was designed by Dior for Princess Diana, the Lady Dior Classic is the tangible definition of elegance. The classic quilted bag is made of black lambskin leather and has a silver charm on one of the handles that spells Dior. This is truly an iconic, stylish and all round classic.

  6. Thank you Ashima for putting together a classic collection. Personally I loved Chloe Paddington and Diana – Dior styles….very modern, yet very chic. I’ll try to keep these styles in mind, next time I look for a nice purse.

    Most of these handbags cost upwards of $1200-$1400 and its outrageous to spend so much on a handbag. My personal budget is $100-$300 for purses……I bet one can get great designs, great styles and quality purses in that range.

    Yes, if I become overnight celebrity or win lottery, I may change my budget :specs:….

    In US, in big cities, 1 in 2 women have Coach ( so I personally hate Coach ) and 1 in 10 have LV…..

    Many can be fakes or from outlet stores or in sale ( last season discounts)……but still when you see so many Coach out there….its no longer a “hmmm nice” thing…..
