"Cleo Bag" from Prada

The "Cleo Bag" from Prada combines the popular look of the nineties with elegant lines. The rounded shoulder bag made of brushed leather is available in different colors and costs 1,500 euros. Thanks to its clean look, it can be combined in many ways; whether with jeans and a sweater or a dress, whether over the shoulder or in the hand. The "Cleo" is a designer piece that goes with different looks for a long time!

"Jackie 1961" from Gucci

Another crescent-shaped classic that has been reissued is the "Jackie Bag" by Gucci. The "Jackie 1961" is celebrating its comeback with detachable shoulder straps and in different colors and sizes, priced between 1,600 and 2,200 euros. Blogger and fashion designer Xenia Adonts relies on candy blue, but the bag is also an elegant eye-catcher in more timeless tones such as brown, black or creamy white. The fact that Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele is giving the bag a revival speaks for itself: an investment that pays off!

"Jodie" from Bottega Veneta

Bottega Veneta is the label that has been an integral part of Instagram feeds and street style icons for a few years. After chunky boots and cool clutches, in 2021 we will love the boho-style "Jodie Bag" with a knotted handle or the soft "Shoulder Pouch", a further development of the iconic "Pouch Bag". Both are available in different colors

"Nora" by Agneel

For great designer pieces you don't necessarily have to look across the pond and only at well-known fashion houses – there are also great alternatives from Germany: One of them is the Berlin label Agneel, which was founded in 2016 by Yesim Karaman in Berlin. Agneel is committed to producing timeless, elegant luxury accessories fairly that will accompany their owners for a lifetime. Ninety percent of the team is women and all designs are named after women. So also our favorite "Nora". The round calfskin shoulder bag is available in the most amazing colors and is loved by fashionistas like Farina Opoku and Elle Macpherson.

The clean design is rounded off by hardware in silver or gold and is super practical and versatile thanks to removable straps. The bag is just one of many cool models from the Berlin label, costs 680 euros and is definitely worth the money!

Rent designer bags

A trend that is becoming increasingly popular in 2021 and is perfect for those who do not want to and cannot opt ​​for a luxury handbag is the rented it bag. Yes, you heard right! Companies like "The Beyond Club" or "Bag And Borrow" offer a lending service that is more sustainable, more cost-effective and more versatile than many a bag purchase. As part of a membership in "The Beyond Club", for example, you can have one of over 300 handbags from 40 international fashion houses delivered to your home every month. This can then be combined, executed and presented as desired, and then sent back to borrow a new model.
