As our pre-pandemic lifestyles slowly return, many of us are taking this time to invest in high-quality pieces for our capsule wardrobe that will stand the test of time. Designer handbags are perhaps the most popular consideration, especially as our calendar of events begins to fill-up once again.

Instead of dropping your hard-earned cash on a brand-new designer handbag, why not consider purchasing a pre-owned luxury handbag instead? Of course, there are thousands of preloved designer handbags to choose from, so let us help you narrow your choices down!

Here are 5 designer handbags that will remain must-have pieces for decades to come.

1. Chanel Classic Flap

There’s a reason why these designer handbags continuously rise in price. They’re the ultimate piece in every fashionista’s collection, sporting the brand’s iconic quilted-flap style, complete with the signature CC logo and chain strap.

The Chanel Classic Flap handbag comes in a variety of colors, with black being the most popular. For one that stands the test of time in your own closet, stick to a neutral shade so it complements every outfit you own. If you’re looking for that statement pop of color, however, opt for a shade that demands attention!

2. Hermès Birkin

The Hermès Birkin is one of the most coveted and hardest bags to secure in the world. Hence, it’s no surprise that this beauty is on our list of designer handbags that will stand the test of time. 

With its Togo leather and refined gold- or silver-tone hardware, the Birkin has enough room to fit everything you could possible need – whilst making it look good, of course. 

We’ve seen the Birkin being sold for the price of a small house online. Consider putting that money to better use and supporting the environment through purchasing a pre-owned Hermès Birkin instead! 

3. Saint Laurent (YSL) Matelasse Bag

The Matelasse Bag by YSL can be likened to an architectural beauty, with its sculpted ridges and show-stopping logo. Perhaps what many like about this designer handbag is its versatility and practicality, however, as the classic envelope style lends itself perfectly to the ‘everyday’ bag. 

Trust us, running errands never looked so good!

4. Louis Vuitton Noe BB

While it can be argued that most (if not ALL) of Louis Vuitton’s styles will remain fashionable forever, we have a particular soft spot for the brand’s Noe BB, which contains a compact size and fluid form for ease. The bag can also be worn in three different ways, including across the body, on the shoulder, or by hand – depending on your chosen length of the strap.

With its signature LV print and tan leather trim, this is one pre-owned luxury handbag that will be treasured for generations to come.

5. Prada Promenade Bag

When the Promenade Bag was released by Prada, celebrities went crazy for its sophisticated curves, trapezoidal shape, and convenient handle-or-strap situation. It’s constructed out of Prada’s signature Saffiano leather and comes in four sizes, including large, medium, small, and mini.

This is another designer handbag that offers the ultimate in versatility, whether you want to wear it to the office, out to dinner, or at a wedding.
