The Givenchy Antigona

The Antigona was the IT bag when it launched; worn by the likes of Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyoncé. 10 years later, it remains just as iconic, refreshed by Givenchy's expansion of the Antigona range and often available at H.C for a fraction of the cost!

2. On The First Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me...

The Mulberry Alexa:

The Mormont was one of the most sought after bags during lockdown; thus, solidifying its status in the league of iconic handbags. The most coveted bag of the moment is the version made of noble soft velvet, which will pair beautifully with an array of seasonal outfits.

Mulberry Zipped Bayswater

One of Mulberry's most iconic and sought-after styles; making this an investment piece to treasure! Since Johnny Coca took over at Mulberry, he breathed a new life into its heritage styles and the zipped Bayswater is one such result. Going strong since 2016 and still today, it remains one of the brand's most desirable styles!

6. On The First Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me...

The Bottega Venete Snap Bag:

Bottega Snap Bag

Of all the new Bottega Veneta bags, the BV Snap is one to make hearts sing! With its conceptual combination of leather, metal and wood, it stands out from the crowd. The combination of clean lines from the wood and metal closure with the soft leather is what dreams are made of. This beauty (with 19% off) is perfect for spring!

7. On The First Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me...

The Louis Vuitton Keepall 55 Bandouliere:

Louis Vuitton Keepall 55 Bandouliere:

Is there a travel bag more recognisable than Louis Vuitton's Keepall Bandouliere? Its iconic shape has been a signature since the 1920's and inspired the creation of the speedy: a testament to its timelessness! A win for versatility as it is both a unisex fit.

8. On The First Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me...

The Chanel Maxi Single Flap Bag:

Chanel Maxi Single Flap

The ultimate enduring classic and a timeless investment price. First introduced by Karl Lagerfeld when he first joined the house of Chanel in 1983. Keeping the same silhouette as the original 2.55, it received a modern update with the addition of the iconic interlocking CC logo. The Flap Bag has increased its average value by an impressive 140% over the last 5 years; making it a super savvy purchase as it will always hold its value!

9. On The First Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me...

The Celine Phantom Bag:

Celine Phantom in Suede

Among all the Celine bags there is one model that stands out for its large structure; the Phantom. Similar in style to the Luggage, the Phantom (also known as the Phantom Luggage) could be described as a wider version of the Celine Mini Luggage Tote; with the larger wingspans being its most noticeable characteristics! Out of all the Celine handbags, this one remains one of the most sought after in the industry.

10. On The First Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me...

The Gucci Dionysus:

Gucci Suede Dionysus

Certain cult bags are notoriously difficult to get your hands on and Gucci's Dionysus is one such example. It used to be that for a bag to acquire true icon status, it had to be relatively simplistic in design, but Gucci's Dionysus has turned that theory on its head. This beauty will hold its value for years to come!

11. On The First Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me...

The Lady Dior, by Christian Dior:

Lady Dior

One of the world's most iconic styles. The Lady Dior is currently experiencing a revival after Princess Diana's highly anticipated on-screen appearance in The Crown. Since the late Princess gave it its IT bag status in the 90s, this timeless classic has only gained momentum and will hold its value for generations to come. Snap up this immaculate vintage treasure for Christmas!

12. On The First Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me...

The Stella McCartney Falabella- Mini Tote:

Falabella Mini Tote:

Steeped in covetable classic fashion history, Stella McCartney's conscious-luxury brand is more desirable than ever in today's sustainable climate. This Falabella has stood the test of time and only gained momentum since its launch in 2009. A sense of do-gooding is all the more delicious when giving into the lure of this beauty- and all at 39% less than brand new!
