For most 20-somethings, the idea of splurging on every single new Saint Laurent release or a pair of Gucci sunglasses may just seem absolutely unnecessary — luxury tags can go ahead and sit on the back-burner while we down that second shot of tequila. But once we approach the big 3-0, saving up for a series of high-quality, classic handbags is a more logical move that you’d imagine. We’re talking about ‘investment pieces‘, the things that will supposedly see you through a lifetime of wardrobe crises and cheap, trend-obsessed fast fashion. An arsenal of timeless bags (which frankly, are meant to be earned) can really last you for life — and even serve as a valuable heirloom after.
It’s time to look and feel the part of a glamorous, polished adult; we’ve round up new releases that we predict to be decade-spanning investment pieces for time to come. From multicoloured, striped Birkins to quilted Chanel vanity bags, these new players on the block are really worth pumping your hard-earned, hard-saved money into.
