Here at Cohorted, we like to think our tastes are varied when it comes to coveted ‘it’ bags and we have a few in mind we’re saving for over the next few months (and years). It’s time to put the money we’ve saved from working from home to good use after all.
Designer bags always have their moment, some of them are for now and some of them are forever. Is there a reason why Chanel increased the price of their iconic quilted leather shoulder bag? Yes. It’s because they absolutely could. They know the likes of us will be putting aside funds in a Monzo pot named ‘dream bag’ in the hopes of adorning our arms with a taste of luxury.
This may be on the masculine side and *technically* a toiletry bag but that doesn’t matter, right? It’s all about how you wear it. Louis Vuitton pouches are a more affordable way of purchasing a designer ‘bag’ on a budget. You can also get creative and add a strap if clutches aren’t your thing.
Daniel Diyepriye is an upcoming Nigerian designer focusing on luxury leather goods at an affordable price without skimping on quality. With the iconic puzzle print adorning their bags, the Ibukun will be the perfect fit to your collection.
A fashion blogger’s staple, the Gucci Marmont blends 70s hardware with modern shapes. Available in a plethora of finishes from leather to velvet and even sequins, there is one worth saving for. Best of all there are different sizes so it doesn’t ‘have’ to break the bank but we prefer the ‘small’. Perfect for roaming around the city, rooftop drinks and a special occasion, why not ‘Marmont’ the occasion.
Saint Laurent is a classic for a reason and the College bag is one of their most iconic pieces. Starting at £1,700 for the medium size, this baby isn’t at all cheap but is worth every single penny. Cohorted writer Charlotte chose this as her first designer bag at age 29 and doesn’t regret the decision – “Every time I use it, I smile”.
Designer handbags are investments. They can be dressed up or down, and bring a pop of luxury to any outfit. Saving for one that reflects you and your style is something we think every woman should do at least once in her lifetime.
