One of the best investments you can make for your wardrobe is a classic, well-made designer handbag. These are the pieces you’ll have for years, and possibly even decades, to come.
According to Art Market Research (AMR), designer handbags now outperform art, classic cars and rare whiskies in terms of investment potential. Some bags, such as Hermés, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton, have even experienced a valuation spike of an average of 83% in the last ten years.
I tend to stick to a relatively neutral palette and a classic design to ensure that the pieces I invest in are timeless and cohesive with my wardrobe, no matter the season. If you’re interested in starting (or adding to) your collection, I’ve rounded up some of the best classic handbags for you here.
