The cycle of fashion is one that’s swift. Case in point, certain items on trend today will probably be considered “last season” the next. While handbags have the ability to transcend seasons, it’s still best to be a smart consumer and buy something that will hold its value in the long run. Here, we’ve listed down our best bets for handbags to invest in for the year.

1. Burberry TB Bag

The TB bag was introduced during Riccardo Tisci's debut collection for Burberry. Though a noticeable departure from Burberry usual designs, the TB bag was made with Thomas Burberry in mind. The name takes the brand founder's initials, and it features bespoke monogram hardware that celebrates the house's heritage. The bag is available in a range of colors and different styles, but the small and medium are guaranteed to be timeless.

2. Celine Triomphe Bag

Many were skeptical about Hedi Slimane taking the helm at Celine, but it's clear, in regards to the bags and accessories, that Slimane only wants the brand's heritage to be at the forefront. The bag resurrects Celine's original logo which features the Blazon Chaine, an element inspired by the Arc de Triomphe.

3. Chloé C Bag

When the Chloé C launched in 2018, several fashion websites predicted that it would be everywhere this year. True enough, the C bag has become a favorite of the brand's fans and street style stars. The bag features brand new hardware for Chloé, a large gold 'C,' which takes a moment to get used to. Not only does the bag make a bold statement, it is practical enough to carry daily essentials while having the ability to suit both casual and dressier outfits.

Danse Lente has been on everyone's fashion radar for quite a while. The London-based brand has continually released bags that have all been hits so far. Lucky for us, the It-bag brand just recently launched in Rustan's Makati. One of the brand's most popular bags is the Mini Lorna, a leather bucket bag that features interchangeable straps and a minimalist silhouette.

5. Gucci Zumi


The latest bag to come from Alessandro Michele's mind is the Zumi. Both stylish and practical, the Zumi features a detachable shoulder strap that allows the bag to turn into a clutch or as a top-handle. The bag's most distinguishing design element is the interlocking G and horsebit hardware, a reference to a rare and vintage piece in Gucci's archives.

6. Louis Vuitton Dauphine MM


A '70s era Louis Vuitton bag served as the inspiration for the new Dauphine bag. The compact style features a new closure, hexagonal chain strap, and an adjustable leather strap that allows it to be worn two ways. What makes the Dauphine special is how it has a strong connection to the maison's heritage while having the ability to adapt to modern lifestyles.

7. Salvatore Ferragamo Gancini Flap Bag


Creative director Paul Andrew's Gancini line celebrates the iconic symbol of the house. The instantly recognizable double-hook fastening has been turned into a monogram print that is simple yet elegant. The print is available in different styles including a top handle, crossbody, and a bucket bag but the flap bag is the one to look out for.
