Men and expensive cars, that's a combination that will probably never get old - these two simply stick together. But there's another, perhaps even more inseparable combination; one might even say love. We're talking about women and quality handbags. It's not a secret that the gentler sex is very fond of accessories, but choosing the right ones is no easy feat. Being able to factor in timelessness, elegance and making the piece match our wardrobe and our general style can be compared to navigating a minefield. A well-chosen designer piece can really last forever. Let us show you a few of those that will never be a mistake!
Chanel Classic Flap Bag
The Chanel 11.2 bag, also known as the Chanel Flap Bag, is a true classic. It was created in 1982 when Karel Lagerfeld arrived in France. Coco Chanel once said that simplicity is a central element of true elegance. The double flap made of caviar leather, diamond stitching and fastening with an inseparable iconic CC logo. Pretty simple, don't you think? But that is where the magic of this ageless gem lies. It will go with pretty much everything.
Even world-famous celebrities often opt for handbags from this legendary French brand. For example, Kate Middleton has recently complimented her stylish outfit with a burgundy piece.
Prada Cleo Bag
And now something for fans of true simplicity. If you prefer to keep both feet firmly on the ground when it comes to accessories, Prada Cleo Bag will be the ideal choice for you. Summer is around the corner, which means it's the highest time to bring back pastel colours. The model can also be bought in black, but we wanted to show you that there are more colours than one. For example, makeup mogul Kylie Jenner bought her piece in red.
Bottega Veneta Cloud handbags
This Italian brand has truly flourished in recent years. Its iconic element has become the so-called "weave" design, which we really enjoy, and it's unlikely we'll get tired of it any time soon. It will add a touch of elegance and spark to your outfit. What's more, the brand offers a wide range of colours, so it's up to you which one will catch your eye. We were instantly captivated by this pastel blue.
One of the celebrities who have fallen for these handbags is world-famous top model Hailey Bieber, who combines them with both elegant and sporty outfits. In the photo, she boasts Paco Rabanne in blue.
Saddlebags. This trend is an integral part of the French fashion house Dior and has been peaking for a couple of years already. It may not fit much, but who needs to carry around clutter. Keys, a cell phone and lipstick - that's all anybody needs, right? This handbag definitely belongs to more extravagant pieces, but you'll be incredibly stylish with it. We fell in love with it mainly because of its unique shape, detailed stitching and the iconic letter D.
"Dior's saddle bag is timeless. It can be worn by both men and women. Big or small. It's an item that's already been refreshed once and it's simply cool,"
said fashion designer Lukáš Macháček. Celebrities such as Blake Lively, Beyoncé and Iggy Azalea have all been enchanted by it.
Fun details from Yves Saint Laurenta
Last but not least, we must not forget to mention this French giant. The classic crossbody handbag made of calfskin is adorned by a chain, the iconic letters YSL and a tassel on the upper part with a magnetic clamp. Simply an accessory that will bring your outfit to a whole new level. Just like in the case of Kourtney Kardashian, who donned a mustard-coloured handbag, knowing very well that there was no need to worry about the rest of the outfit. The black top and trousers underline such an accessory perfectly well.
