The 5 Must-Have Designer Bags for your wardrobe in 2021

by your girl, Ashleigh

1. Jacquemus Le Chiquito Top-Handle Bag

Jacquemus is the brand that has made micro bags a must-have. Ever since Lizzo stepped out at the AMAs in 2019 with her keychain-sized Jacquemus Le Chiquito, the bag has been a must-have. This mini size will hold your cards and a few must-have makeup products. You can carry it by the top handle or wear it crossbody with the matching strap.

2. Gucci Jackie 1961 Medium Hobo Bag

The world of designer handbags is having a throwback moment. Every fashion house is reviving at least one of their iconic designs, and Gucci is no exception. The ‘Jackie 1961’ bag takes its name from the former First Lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis. This Gucci icon features the GG canvas and green and red web stripe. 

3. Bottega Veneta The Chain Cassette

Bottega Veneta is the comeback kid of luxury fashion. For years their collections were getting little attention until they released their Nappa leather collections. Now your designer handbag collection isn’t complete without at least one Bottega Veneta bag. The Chain Cassette is a must-have as it brings together the oversized gold chain of their pouch bags with the cassette silhouette. 

4. Dior Saddle Bag Gray Dior Oblique Embroidery

The Dior Saddle is another bag having a resurgence. Creative Direction Maria Grazia Chirui gives the Dior Saddle a fresh new look with the oblique embroidery that launched with the iconic book tote. The monogram reminds us of the logo-mania pieces that Dior produced in the late ‘90s and early 2000s. You can personalise this bag with optional shoulder straps that are offered by Dior.

5. Yves Saint Laurent Uptown Pouch

Are you looking for a luxury bag on a budget? The Uptown Pouch is a must-have from Yves Saint Laurent and is a classic bag with an attainable price tag. This envelope clutch features the signature gold YSL initials and is available in five colours with different leather finishes. You can carry the Uptown Pouch as an everyday bag or use it as an organiser inside a tote bag. If you’re looking for a versatile ‘it’ bag that will never date, the Yves Saint Laurent Uptown Pouch is perfect for you.
