This bag is elegantly finished in black leather with a top grab handle. It can also be worn with any outfit.

This bag deserves a place on our list. It’s a must-have because it has inspired so many bags. Although it is much more slouchy than the Cassette, it still uses the Veneta trademark woven structure. It’s more of an elbow bag, or grab top handle bag with an oversize knot.

9. CHANEL 2.55 BAGS
The best things in life come free. The second-best are very, very costly. This is one of our favourite Coco Chanel quotes. It’s very appropriate when we are talking about Chanel’s famous 2.55 Flap Bag. It’s the bag that sold a thousand copies and is instantly recognisable.
Gabrielle Chanel created it in February 1955. It is distinguished by its rectangular shape and signature quilting. While black leather is the most traditional, seasonal tweed and color-pop options are more fashion-forward. Although you can shop online at Chanel, for the best selection of sizes, colors and fabrications, it is better to visit one its boutiques. Prices start at $3,800 for a mini version; prices rise to more than $6,000 for the maxi version.
Chanel is a luxury brand that designs handbags. It doesn’t participate in the top designer outlets. If you are looking for a second-hand version, Chanel bags can hold their value or increase in value. You should only purchase vintage or second-hand bags from a trusted source.
10. HERMES KELLY LEATHER BAGG
Without Hermes, it’s nearly impossible to compile a list of the top designer bags. Although the Birkin may be the first bag that comes to mind when A-listers are thinking of it, Kelly is our choice for glamour. It was first created by Robert Dumas who is the son-in law of Emile Hermes and grandson of founder Thierry Shemes. Grace Kelly, a Hollywood legend, wore it. According to rumours, Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco and actress, used the bag in order to hide her pregnancy in late 1950s. The bag was then renamed in her honour.
Kelly’s simplicity is the best part of it. This bag won’t be influenced by fashion trends so you can be sure it will last for many years. It is difficult to get your hands on a Hermes bag. It is not possible to get a Hermes bag for everyone. Even if you are on the shortlist, it can still be a long wait. The resale market for Kelly bags is booming. Second-hand may be the best option. However, make sure that the bag has been authenticated and signed by an expert. Although exact prices can be difficult to find, depending on the leather, a Kelly bag purchased directly from Hermes could cost upwards of $6,000.
