Forever Bags: The Brands to Invest In

Feature: Quick Read
Words by Abigail Gurney-Read

In unsettling times, investment pieces – from fine jewellery to beautifully crafted accessories – take priority on our fashion agenda. Much like a Cartier Love bangle, forever bags don't tend to be spontaneous purchases, nor the result of late night browsing and a large glass of Chablis. They’re the styles that you’ve considered and coveted, elegant and enduring – those rare few gems that will chime as much in a decade’s time as they do now. Attention must be paid.

Slouchy pouches in deliciously soft leather, contemporary silhouettes that erred on the sculptural… As per, the style set’s arm-candy roster served fashion with a capital 'F'. Neutral tones reigned supreme – running the gamut from ivory and ecru to tan, taupe, umber and black.

    Toted and touted by anyone who’s anyone, Daniel Lee’s wait-list bags are the omnipresent accessories of fashion month and beyond. Arco, Cassette, Jodie and The Pouch… With each silhouette as covetable as the last (if not more so), selecting your favourite will be practically impossible. Just ask any fashion editor.

    Loewe

    Exceptional craftsmanship is in the bag with Loewe (in every sense), inherent to its DNA since Enrique Loewe Roessberg established his team of leather artisans over 150 years ago. Now, with Jonathan Anderson at the helm, Loewe bags – from its unisex Puzzle to the cross-body Gate and its latest addition, the Balloon – have made waves as icons in their own right.

    Gucci

    To own a Gucci bag, heirloom or new season, is to be a member of a unique and global club, endorsed by celebrities and accessories aficionados alike. Alessandro Michele’s au courant creations – Ophidia, Dionysus, Sylvie – share their stage with archival motifs and insignia, from the GG Supreme (its monogrammed canvas) to that signature horsebit hardware.
