We’ve seen a lot of new, beautiful handbags unveiled in 2014 and as we get close to the end of the year, we’ve thought it would be great to look back at the bags which impressed us the most this year. They might not the most extreme or innovative bags launched this year, but these nine bags on our luxury handbags list are the ones that we would all like to have.
1. Chanel Graffiti Backpack
The Graffiti Backpack is one of the most eye catching bags on the market right now, featuring a youthful, punk design that will surely turn a lot of heads on the streets, and of course, the stylish Chanel branding as well. It’s something that would go really well with any casual outfit.
2. Chloé Drew Bag
The new Drew Bag from Chloé has been one of the most popular bags of the year, with record number of sales for the French fashion house thanks to its elegant and luxurious design. It’s perfect for special occasions, going well with a cocktail dress for example.
3. Coach Dakotah Fringe Shoulder Bag
The Coach Dakotah Fringe has been one of my favorite bags, ever since I’ve seen the first photos with it. I’m a big fan of this style and I honestly didn’t expect to see a bag like this coming from Coach. It was actually part of the first collection launched by Stuart Vevers as the new creative director of the brand and I hope we’ll see more bags like these in the future.
4. Fendi Peekaboo Bag
I’ve seen a lot of jaw dropping bags launched by Fendi this year but this one has been my favorite, a new version of the classic Peekaboo bag, which features a slightly refreshed design and the same perfect lines and elegance of the old model. It’s one of the most expensive bags from this luxury handbags list, but it’s as close to perfection as it gets.
5. Givenchy Lucrezia Bag
Another elegant bag that was almost sold out immediately was the lovely Lucrezia bag from Givenchy. Every year the guys from Givenchy manage to get us addicted to a new bag and, after great hits like Pandora or Antigona, this beauty was a must have for any fashionista who can afford it.
6. Gucci Jackie Soft Shoulder Bag
The new line of bags unveiled by Gucci this year has been a pleasant surprise for most of us, with sophisticated and chic bags that could be perfect for women of all ages. The Jackie Soft Shoulder bag has been my favorite piece and this photo will surely convince you to like it as well.
7. Louis Vuitton Soft Lockit Bag
Every list with the most important bags of the year has to include something from Louis Vuitton, and that’s because their bags are always so beautiful that they must be mentioned everywhere. This year there was a change of ‘regime’ at the renowned fahion house and the Soft Lockit bag was the first big hit of the year. It’s the most expensive bag from this list but I’m sure it’s worth every single penny.
8. Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag
Mansur Gavriel is probably the hottest new name in the biz, taking over the world the purse market with simple, high quality products made from fine Italian leather. The company has been launched just 2 years ago and their Bucket Bag has been a major hit, especially the red lined version. It’s pretty cheap and it’s extremely chic as well.
9. Saint Laurent Monogramme Mini Shoulder Bag
Last on our luxury handbags list, Yves Saint Laurent’s sleek black leather mini shoulder bag could add some class to any outfit. The bag features a rocker glam look, decorated with a glossy gold tassel and the “YSL” logo like the one that was originally created in the 1960s.
