The Best Investment Bags of 2023

The Best Investment Bags of 2023

"While fashion trends come and go, there are a few fantastic, timeless luxury handbags that will never go out of style." 

One of the best investments you can make is a fantastic designer bag. Once you locate a staple bag to add to your collection, it will easily replace all other accessories as your go-to daily accessory. It can instantly update anything from casual denim to more formal apparel. 

A distinctive designer bag's inherent versatility means you never have to worry about how to outfit it. The fact that an investment bag is the ideal go-to accessory, regardless of your particular style, makes it all the more important to add one to your collection. A bag often needs to possess a specific combination of traits to become a "It bag": it must be instantly recognized, but in a subtle and never gaudy way; it must be adaptable but elegant; and it must not be overly accessible. It must also have a contemporary, yet timeless and refined design.


1. The Iconic Designer Bags

Classic, timeless, and iconic, the investment bag is a sought-after object that is carried by everyone from first ladies and actresses to heiresses. You can select an investment bag that appeals to you among the Hermès Birkin, Chanel 2.55, Classic Flap, and Dior Lady Bag, albeit some have far higher asking prices than others. In fact, Birkins—named for Jane Birkin, of course—can cost upwards of $200,000, while the cost of Chanel's iconic flap increases yearly. These bags are all considered to be investment-worthy works of art because of their propensity to increase in value.


2. The Retro Revivals

There seems to be a retro-style bag from everyone's go-to brand making a comeback, whether it's from the '90s or even the '00s. The Jackie purse by Gucci, which debuted in 1961, immediately became a fashion must-have for both sexes. Prior to appearing on the arms of every celebrity and influencer in recent seasons, Prada's famed nylon mini-bags were relics of a bygone era. We're just anticipating the next vintage it-bag to make a comeback.


3. The Logomania Designer Bags

Gucci's 1955 Horsebit Small Shoulder Bag, an archival rendition recreated by one of fashion's most quirky and revered labels, first emerged at the brand's Resort 2020 runway show as a nod to the House's 1950s archives. But not all bags with lots of logos draw inspiration from the history of their individual houses. One only needs to look at items like Chloé's Woody Striped Canvas tote to see that logomania is still surviving even though it may not be as overt as it once was.


4. The Clutch

Although they might not be the most useful choice, clutches are the ideal finishing touch. An excellent example is the Pouch bag by Bottega Veneta, which is also known as the fashion insider's current favorite brand. Not only was it one of Daniel Lee's first creations, but it's also one of his most sought-after items. The chic brown teen-sized handbag is made in Italy from supple calf leather and is expertly folded to produce a voluminous, rounded design that goes great with any outfit. Style it with a leather jacket for tactile play that serves two purposes.


5. The Belt Bag

The fanny pack is one of the few fashion products to have advanced so far and then crashed so hard. What was once the height of fashion quickly turned into the target of dad jokes worldwide, earning the title of "Hottest Product of the Year" in 1988 from Adweek. However, fanny packs have seen a surprising comeback under the new name of "belt bag" as a number of well-known models started sporting them in 2017. For a relaxed but elegant style, pair them with denim pants from the newest collection.
