Wow, what a bold, colourful and most importantly, investment-worthy selection of handbags we have here for you today!
Don’t despair the next time you see a hot celeb carrying the “it” bag of the season, or indeed when you see it get toted down the runway at the next Fashion Week… just think of it as an investment and start saving!
We’d recommend buying one of those money-saving pots (you know, the ones you can’t get into unless you break?) and start slowly but surely filling it up for a rainy day (read: bag-buying-day), because we have a great selection of investment handbags to tempt you with:
1.– One of the babies of the Mulberry family, and we think it’s right up there with the classics. And being up there with the Alexas and the Del Reys is an achievement in itself. The best thing about this bag is the fact that you literally get two for the price of one, as you can unzip the front and use it as a clutch bag. Genius! Mulberry Willow, £1,500
2.– We all have those moments where a bold accessory is needed to jazz up an all-black outfit, and this is the aforementioned accessory. Another big name to explode onto the fashion scene – you know Alexander Wang pieces are going to be a wardrobe staple for many seasons to come. We love the sleek simplicity of his current bags though. Alexander Wang Rockie bag., £718.56
3.– Having just won the Womenswear Designer of the Year prize at the 2013 CFDAs, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are obviously doing something right for Proenza Schouler. This bag was worthy of “investment bag” status from the second it came out! Proenza Schouler PS1, £1,150
4.– The classic LV print isn’t going out of style any time soon, so it’s never a bad time to invest in a gorgeous bag covered in the iconic print. This bag is a particular favourite – just look at it! Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandoulière, £740
5.– A celeb favourite – and it’s not hard to see why! It’s perfect for all seasons, at all times of the day, for all occasions! Whether you buy it in classic black or want the intricate version above, you know you’re getting your money’s worth with the ultimate definition of an investment bag! Givenchy Nightingale, £1388.62
