There are thousands of beautifully crafted handbags that have come and gone over the years, however, very few can be called iconic.
The 5 iconic handbags to own are: The Hermès Birkin Bag, the Chanel ‘2.55,’ the Louis Vuitton Speedy bag, the Lady Dior by Dior, and the Jackie bag by Gucci.
Hermes’ Birkin Bag has been one of the most coveted bags to own by fashionable women everywhere. The infamous weekend bag can be made in various leathers and is lined with goatskin that matches the outside of the bag.
We all recognize the quilted leather outside, leather threaded chain link straps, and the double C “Mademoiselle Lock” on the Chanel 2.55 handbag, which has become lusted after for its craftsmanship and long straps that lets the wearer go hands free!
From Audrey Hepburn to Agyness Deyn, the Speedy bag by Louis Vuitton has become a signature classic. The bag comes in monogrammed canvas with leather handles and a large zipped opening.
Lady Dior by Dior became an icon when Princess Diana began to wear the simple box-like shape bag with the quilted leather exterior and the D,I,O,R charms dangling from the leather handles.
Lastly, we have the Jackie bag by Gucci, which gained its name in the 1950's when Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was spotted wearing the practical hobo style bag, and has remained a favorite ever since for the stylish and busy woman!
