The Chanel Boy handbag is probably one of the pioneers of the simple rectangular and quilted texture that we are so used to seeing now. The Chanel logo in front is more of a status symbol now, set against that rich black color.
This Gucci shoulder bag is also one of the classic quilted designs that simply never wear out. Then, of course, there is the trademark logo of the interlocked “GG” in front, which was interestingly inspired by one of the brand’s belt buckle designs launched in the 70s.
The Loewe Puzzle bag is created with interesting origami-inspired block panels in different shapes with hand-painted black edges for dimension. It is what creates the “puzzle” effect of the handbag which can be held as a clutch or hung over the shoulders with its long straps.
The Dior Saddle bag was one of the first uniquely shaped bags to become a cult favorite. As the name suggests it comes in saddle shape and is covered in blue jacquard canvas with calfskin leather details. The Dior logo alphabet beautifully hangs from the front flap.
The Balenciaga “Classic City” tote bag is a beautiful piece made of textured black leather. It was created as a prototype for the brand’s 2001 runway collection and since then, it has been loved and worn by celebrities and fashion followers alike. It is studded with gold color metal rivets and accessories, inspired by the biker culture.
The Fendi PeakabooTote Bag comes in typical triangular shape and has the smoothest monochromatic leather texture. It has two compartments with twist-lock fasteners. You can carry it by its small handle or hang it over your shoulders with the longer strap.
The Celine Classic Box bag is the epitome of sophistication. The ultra-smooth calfskin leather texture fitted with a gold metallic clasp closure speaks volumes about brand’s design competence and quality. It also comes with an adjustable and removable strap, so you can easily carry it as a clutch as well.
