（１）Dior Saddle Bag
Worn by Carrie Bradshaw and coveted by all of us, the Dior Saddle Bag was the ‘It’ bag of the 90s and 00s.
Despite its popularity, the brand eventually ceased production of the shape - causing resale demand to rise. Fast-forward to 2018 when Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri sent a re-imagined version of this classic down the runway, and the Saddle Bag 2.0 was born. The beautifully curved shape might have remained the same, but this time it’s not just about canvas and embroidery, but shiny goat leather too - all complete with the stirrup ‘D’ closure.
（２）Chanel 19 Flap Bag
The Chanel 19 bag might be named after 2019, as it was launched at the end of last year, but we've seen it flourish in 2020 and it’s set to be even more popular than ever in 2021. The quilted bag is a reimagined version of the house's classic 2.55 bag, but the 19 has a really chunky chain strap.
（３）MINI CHLOE C CROSSBODY BAG
Having quickly ascended to cult status, Natacha Ramsay-Levi's 'Chloé C' bag has been re-imagined in mini proportions. In a range of colours to choose from, each comes accented with gold-toned ‘C’ hardware.
（４）Celine Classic Box
The Celine Box bag has been a favourite since its launch in 2011. Returning in almost every collection since its debut, the bag has become an essential part of the Celine bag family and a cult piece. Defined by its box-like silhouette, it features a single flap and a long shoulder strap.
（５）Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag
Are you on the lookout for a new designer handbag for every day? Practical enough to carry all your everyday essentials, but also stylish, Mansur Gavriel’s bucket bag is a classic for a reason. Always on-trend it’s a buy now wear-forever piece.
