The 10 Best Luxury Handbags to Add to Your Wish List this Year

When it comes to splurging on yourself, what’s the first thing you think of? If you’re like me, it’s usually one of three things – a vacation, of course, jewelry, or a really good luxury handbag. It’s time to spend some of that hard-earned money we saved from not going out for a year last year – am I right?! These are some of my favorites I’ve been eye-ing this season and keep reading about as the ‘it’ bags of the year. I’ve been researching these hard so wanted to make sure I shared all my favorites with you guys! I just pulled the trigger on #7 and am SO excited about it.

1. The Point Bag – Bottega Veneta

I don’t know what it is but the Bottega Veneta brand just screams effortless luxe to me. They do such a good job at minimalist designs that aren’t flashy in the least, but are the highest of quality, and in chic, classic styles with a modern touch. The new it bag of the season is the Point Bag and I am ob.sessed.

2. Yves Saint Laurent Raffia Black Clutch

This Saint Laurent Kate Supple 99 Tassel Bag is on my wish-list for summer. I mean – how CHIC is this bag? It goes with anything, everything, and any occasion.

3. Balenciaga Cloud Crossbody Bag

Can you tell I am a sucker for anything croc? This Balenciaga crossbody / clutch is so up my alley. Teal is HOT this year – I’m seeing it everywhere, and LOVING it. It’s the prettiest jewel tone – and never ceases to remind me of the ocean.

Bottega Veneta’s signature intrecciato Nappa leather with leather lining and polished silver-tone hardware in this ADORABLE pink color has me drooling. I just love this little mini bag so much. Perfect for traveling, too! Shop it here.

If a bigger BV pouch is more your style, I also LOVE this one in ‘swimming pool blue’.

This bag is a classic – I mean just LOOK at it. The creamy color. The gold emblem. The detailed sewing. This bag goes with anything, and always looks chic af. This is a must in any closet.

8. Givenchy Cut Out Bag


Givenchy’s creative director Matthew Williams introduced this ‘Cut Out’ bag at his debut Spring ’21 presentation, and we are OBSESSED. It’s been crafted in Italy from smooth leather in a slim, structured silhouette characterized by a gorgeous V-shaped top and embellished with a beautiful chain. The detachable strap means you can carry it cross-body, over your shoulder or in-hand.
