Best investment bags to buy 2020

Which are the best investment bags to buy 2020? Lately I have received several requests from followers who asked me which are the most classic luxury models to focus on to enrich your wardrobe in the long term with a great new piece.

 

 

Because when you decide to spend a certain amount on a beautiful bag, you want to know if it’s a good “investment”, an accessory capable not only to satisfy all the practical needs that a bag, even a designer handbag, must meet, but above all to make your outfits even more elegant and to last over the years.

I’ve been passionate about bags for a long time and, over the years, I’ve bought several handbags I still love. I bought some of my bags new, in a boutique, while for others I preferred to opt for a high quality vintage piece.

To acquire its “It bag” status, a bag usually has to be characterized by a certain mix of elements: it must be immediately recognizable, but in a subtle and never tacky way, it must be versatile but elegant and not too easily accessible. In addition, it must have a modern, but also classic and clean design.

 




So I tried to draw up a list of what I believe to be, in 2020, the absolutely best handbags to buy, the classic pieces to focus on when you decide to invest in a new handbag.

 

1 – CHANEL 2.55

What to say? It’s the classic of the classics and no, it doesn’t age you, you just have to combine it well. I own it and I absolutely recommend the Jumbo version in Caviar leather. You’ll use it a lot.

2 – LOUIS VUITTON SPEEDY BAG

For some years now the Damier version is the most wanted one, but whatever version you choose, this bag will remain a classic. Equipped with a shoulder strap, it will soon become your favorite bag on the go.

3 – FENDI PEEKABOO

Like the previous bags, this bag has been on the market for some years now and it remains a great bag, suitable for a full and dynamic life. Every year it is presented in new colors and leathers.

4 – SADDLE BAG, DIOR

Definitely the new entry among the best classic bags, the Dior Saddle Bag was already in vogue a few years ago, then it temporarily disappeared from the scene and made a great return last spring. And it seems here to stay, judging by the many bloggers and socialites who show it off right now!

5 – GIVENCHY ANTIGONA

 

I’ve always liked this bag and every now and then I think about buying one. In black, of course. It’s a fantastic bag that gives any outfit grit and personality. For this reason, it is perfect for any woman over 40, but also for the very young ones. Its most beautiful version – black and shiny – is also scratch-resistant.

6 – GUCCI DIONYSUS

In recent years, in my opinion, it has become difficult to identify the real classic pieces from this brand – the best Gucci bags to invest in. Gucci’s new style strategy has in fact produced a multiplication of models that tend to have an increasingly shorter life.

There is one item, however, that has been around for years and does not seem destined to leave the scenes: the Gucci Dionysus, with its characteristic and unmistakable lines, is here to stay.

7 – CÉLINE BELT

I include this model of Céline ex aequo in my list of the best classic investment bags because I find there are other it bags from this brand destined to last over time (such as the Mini Luggage or the Classic). In any case, buying a Céline bag is always a good idea if you want a luxurious product capable of withstanding in time without going out of fashion.

8 – HERMÈS BIRKIN

 

 

The Birkin Bag is, of course, the ultimate investment bag. I think its price is really exorbitant, but it’s also a handbag that you can use and love forever, and looks amazing with every possible style.

It’s a great classic and one of the bag dreams of many women, so it deserves a place on this list by right!

9 – CHANEL BOY

Another great classic from Chanel, which I bought myself a few years ago and which I used a lot. Definitely younger and more gritty than the 2.55, it’s quite capacious thanks to its boxy shape and I never regretted taking it!

10 – VANESSA BRUNO TOTE BAG

 

A true emblem of french chic, this bag is very resistant to the passing of time and highly appreciated even beyond national borders, for example by many Hollywood stars. It exists in many different materials and colours. A must have!

 

Buy it here.

 

 

11 – CHLOÉ FAYE

 

 

Actually, among the best women’s handbags to buy under the title of great classics, there is more than one from Chloé, but I chose the Faye because it is the one that, personally, I find the most beautiful and characteristic. Other classic models are the Drew and the Marcie bag.

12 – FALABELLA BAG, STELLA MC CARTNEY

Vegan bag designed by designer Stella McCartney, this great classic in vegan leather never fails to impress and amaze: I had it since many years and I love it, it’s comfortable and decorative and is also one of the bags that most often arouses interest (and requests about where to buy one!) when I go around.

13 – BALENCIAGA CITY

Another fantastic and practical city bag, another great classic that deserves a special place in the list of the best women’s bags to buy 2020! I have had it, or rather I have had three of them, in different colours, over the years. Fantastic to upgrade any outfit, it performs at its best in black or, for some contrast, in a vibrant color.

14 – COLLEGE BAG, YVES SAINT-LAURENT

 

 

This is one of the most recent classic bags, which is extremely popular right now, especially in some cities such as Milan, but in a few years it has managed to deserve a place in the ranking of the best luxury handbags to invest in. This bag is definitely not suitable for college, though. 😉

15 – GUCCI MARMONT BAG

This investment bag comes in many shapes, colors and sizes and has definitely become one of my absolute favorites in the designer bag universe.

And the Gucci Marmont is definitely here to stay. You can find it on the shoulder of countless celebrities, but it’s also one of the most “affordable” options between the designer handbags. I absolutely LOVE my red Gucci Marmont Small, which has the power to elevate even the most casual of my outfits.
