Back to basics-Chic, Minimal, Ladylike-The New It Bags

In Elle UK's own words, 'The IT bag is back- but more refined, without the hardware and the hype.'

Well, depending on your budget, take inspiration from these gorgeous offerings that are about for the new season from Net-A-Porter and if money were no object and I wasn't fortunate enough to have my own version of this classic style, I would go for the YSL:

Chloe Pouch, £290


Lanvin Happy Large, £1355


YSL Chyc, £1240


This seasons most coveted, the Celine Classic Box Bag

My own Chanel Classic-Vintage Chic at its minimal best and just waiting to be used for the new season!!

Will you be doing Ladylike Chic with a classic flap bag this coming season?

Hi There! Must admit that I'm not too keen. They're a bit too bland and office-y for my tastes and if I was going to splash out the equivalent of a four week holiday to India on a bag I'd want everyone to notice it.
I think yours is the best by a mile. xxx

I'm with Vintage Vixen - yours is by far the nicest.

your chanel flap is way nicer. .

as for minimal chic, i have a few bags in mind; but then again i might have itchy fingers and attach scarves or chain to them, in effectively de-minimalising them!

Your post reminds me that it probably IS time for a change of purse/bag for me :)

It's one of the last things I think about. (I DID surprise myself and carry a different one yesterday!)

I depend on you to let me know what's happening in the REAL world of style :)

Its so nice to have you back!! Yep your Chanel wins hands down I just love that elegant style. I do have a soft spot for the Celine though, such a beautiful shape. I have a Fendi bag which will be my minimal bag I guess, it is all a lovely chocolate brown and it really is one of my most treasured possesions. I think the attraction to these classic bags is that they are always going to be chic and add an ounce of class to any look.

I love your Chanel bag and I think I recognize it from a previous post! I think it's the best by far altho, that Lanvin bag, hmmm...

I have that classic Celine bag...in fact I have a few of them. Finally, I can take them out of the closet and wear them again!

Why do I always pick the most expensive option, then see the price? Loving that Lanvin!

I'll definitely be looking to see what Prada has -- but I don't go for classic black. Already got that. I want crazy prints.

Adorable bags! I do agree, classic minimalism is the way to go for my fall season.

I adore ladylike handbags! I like your Chanel vintage bag the best. I have one that looks similar from the '50s. I love it but it's a bit too small. I need a bigger black handbag.

Winnie said...

Love the Lanvin! Your Chanel is sooo timeless.

Christina @ Fashion's Most Wanted said...

I think your Chanel is the best and knowing you it was a steal. I always feel better when it's a bargain.

I do love the YSL, Celine and Lanvin too but I'd never pay those prices, I'm lucky with my job I get 50% off some of them but it's still not enough! xx
