Handbags - The Cure For Happiness?

Handbags. The essential accessory for the modern consumer. From the chic clutch to the bottomless Neverfull, there seems to be a handbag for everything. 

It reached the point where a wise person said this immortal quote...

"You Can't Buy Happiness But You Can Buy Handbags And That Is Kind Of The Same Thing" - Wise Person

If the cure for happiness can be found with a handbag then this article which, highlights some of our favourites for this month, will make you burst!

From Louis Vuitton and Chanel to Christian Dior and Hermès, take a look at these stunning bags!

Lot 11 - Christian Dior Saddle Bag

Experiencing a revival, the classic saddle bag has found the limelight once again after making an appearance in Dior's runway shows this year.

Released in the late noughties, it became a massive hit. Worn by a host of celebrities and even the fictional fashionista, Carrie Bradshaw, the provenance for the Dior saddle bag is certainly strong. 

It's been through many variations, since its release, such as the double saddle and it's helped to preserve the legacy of this classic 'it bag'.

This saddle bag dates back to its peak in 2002 and was made in Italy. Here is some other information:

  • Tan Hardware: Gold Material(s): Calfskin Leather Interior: Brown Textile Closure. 
  • Velcro Tab Height: 18cm Width: 29cm Depth: 6cm Strap Drop: 18cm.

You can find this bag in the Luxury Handbag Sale which ends on the 20th of November!


Lot 13 - Hermès Orange H Togo Leather Kelly 

The story behind the leather kelly is quite remarkable. When she left a building, she was swarmed by paparazzi. She used her 'Sac à dépêche' as a shield from the ensuing photos and the bag became a front page for several American magazines.

Fans entered stores asking for the 'Kelly Bag' and Hermès honoured this by naming it after her. This bag dates back to 2005 and is accompanied by a host of little things:

  • Hermes Dust Bag. 
  • Lock.
  • Togo Leather Interior.
  • Keys.
  • Clochette.
  • Shoulder Strap. 

Available until the 20th November, this bag is still available in our Luxury Handbag Sale.
