The forever pieces
There are certain designs that endure, year after year. This is especially true with a well-chosen handbag – one that will see you through thousands of outfit dilemmas and trend cycles. When it comes to choosing your last-forever piece, craftsmanship and materials are key, and you can afford to have a little fun with the design. These are our favourite future icons…
Timeless and durable, denim is a mainstay in our wardrobes for a reason. Now, Jimmy Choo has used it to recreate its most wearable designs in statement denim fabrics. With a backpack and tote bag to choose from, the Tafira collection features dark denim with pale topstitching. These eye-catching materials will add interest to any outfit.
When it comes to size, we think the smaller the better – a ladylike purse is always in style. And this Boxyz bag from Salvatore Ferragamo is just the thing to wear for an elegant evening out or to clash with casual box-fresh trainers during the daytime. Mini but mighty, the playful design comes in bold fuchsia and lime green for pick-me-up power that will last forever.
An intricate design comes with the territory when it comes to investment-worthy quality. Understandable then, that LOEWE’s Puzzle bag – which takes more than 500 steps to assemble – is a firm fashion industry favourite. Each one is hand sewn by artisans in Spain, a process that takes about three days. Plus, with a variety of leathers and patterns, the Puzzle bag can be folded up and worn in five different ways, from cross-body to clutch – a total keeper!
