A beautiful designer handbag is comparable to a exceptional holiday ornament. Your eyes dazzle at the craftsmanship, intricate details, and fine materials that create a luxurious treasure that sparks a sense of merriment and warms your heart. Can you really put a price on that? Well, luxury retailers do — but that’s not the point. The holiday spirit is an escape from the humdrum of daily troubles that cause one to shout, “Bah, Humbug!” Consider it the perfect excuse to loosen the purse strings.
Does the sight of a bejeweled Fendi beauty make your face light up brighter than a festival of lights? Would you rather feel the buttery-soft touch of Gabriela Hearst’s Nappa leather than taste a Christmas butter cookie? Prefer to listen to the jingle of a Gucci chain strap instead of sleigh bells? Or would you gladly trade Santa’s oversized sack of gifts for a lovely little Loewe? ‘Tis the season to the secure the bag at the top of your wish list.
Indulge in the wondrous delight of these new luxury purses that are meant to be carried, displayed, and safely hung in your closet with care.
Fendi Baguette Silver Leather Bag With Crystal FF Motif
The star in the room isn’t the Christmas tree topper, it’s a Baguette. This heavenly designer shoulder bag has held its position in the upper echelon of status bags since its debut in 1997, thanks to countless iterations, several artist collaborations, and a helping hand from Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw. To sparkle this holiday season, the silver suede Fendi Baguette bag is covered in small crystals and studs in a pattern that reflects the Italian fashion house’s FF motif with every glimpse of light it catches.
Gucci Horsebit Chain Medium Shoulder Bag
Since its recent resurgence, we’ve been dreaming of Gucci’s Horsebit Chain Bag, just like the Tom Ford-era predecessor we used to know. Its green iridescent leather — evocative of warm sunlight glistening on frost-covered trees — creates greater dimension to the purse’s quilted padding, while maxi-sized, silver-toned Horsebit hardware provides the perfect finishing touch to make it look like a precious packaged gift. Its versatility — both in style and function — will be cause for great cheer this holiday season and beyond.
Loewe Flamenco Clutch in Pleated Nappa Lambskin
Like many holiday classics, Loewe’s 1970’s Flamenco design has been reworked by several notable designers over years, yet it continues to strike the ideal balance of timeless elegance and enduring modernity that continues to resonate with both old and new luxury shoppers. The latest clutch bag showcases the storied house’s masterful leather craftsmanship in a woven, hand cut-and-sewn design coated in a decadent butter colorway. Look no further for the ideal companion to dance the night away into the new year.
Alaïa Le Coeur Bag in Lux Calfskin
Show some love this holiday season while wearing your Le Coeur across your heart. A nod to Alaïa’s spring 1992 collection that featured the iconic “Mon Coeur est à Papa” jacquard-knit dresses, Pieter Mulier’s whimsical crossbody bag became the object of heart’s desire for the style set since its debut. A true admirer of Azzedine Alaïa’s legacy will fall head over party heels for this particular model, which references the late designer’s early innovative leather and grommet creations on coats, hats, and more. Give glory to “the king of cling” by donning it with your best black ensembles.
Gabriela Hearst Nina Midas Bag
Making spirits bright since 2016, the Nina bag is exemplary of Gabriela Hearst’s testament to quality materials and exquisite design that defines modern luxury today. The distinctively round bag silhouette — made of smooth, Italian Nappa leather — unfolds by a turnlock closure to reveal a surprisingly spacious pouch that’ll cradle your precious necessities for any special occasion.
In the spirit of giving, the brand has partnered with Save the Children this December so that 100 percent of net proceeds of every special online purchase will support the charity’s Children’s Emergency Response Fund. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
