Travel Bags are so diverse and include Women Designer Bags. You can buy them from many outlets, stores and wholesalers. In the department of designer handbags, we have both women and men bags. However, this post will only focus on Women Designer Bags.

 


Caroline Cox (2007) has her own perception of Women designer Bags: The handbag has never been more important in fashion than it is today. Whether Prada, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, or Chanel, the bags of the season is a much-coveted designer item that indicates supreme style cachet-and for which the fashion-minded do not hesitate to spend… For women, the handbag is an intimate extension of the body, a kind of mobile home for all the items indispensable for daily life.

 


This category of designer bags for women is further split-up into sub-categories to cover women designer tote bags.Tote bags are designed small handbags that women use almost on a daily basis. The carry-all type, that women frequently carry on their shoulders. If we were to explore the range of designer women bags, I don’t think we would be able to exhaust the list. There is a wide range manufactured by many handbag companies out there.

 


Desire Smith (2005)’s comprehensive new book ‘celebrates over 550 top quality handbags by leading and unknown designers the world over, dating from 1759 to 2004.

‘For every aspiring actor in Los Angeles, there is an aspiring designer handbag in New York,’ writes Emily Blumenthal in her book entitled, Handbag Designer 101: Everything You Need to Know About Designing, Making, and Marketing Handbags.

 

 


It all goes to show how vast is the world of designer women bags. The following list is just a tip of an ice bag.

  1. Prada Tote
  2. Givenchy Tote
  3. Mansur Gavriel
  4. Louis Vuitton
  5. Chanel bags
  6. Chloé Faye
  7. Céline Bag
  8. Gucci Bag
  9. Saint Laurent
  10. Stella McCartney’s


According to the MailOnline, a specialist firm in vintage and pre-loved fashion revealed top names of designer handbags that bring in most cash when they are re-sold. These handbags include Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Dior.

 


What Is The Job Of A Designer?

It is worth paying attention to what a designer does, to put everything into context so that we are able to see the big picture of the world of designer bags.

A career in handbag design requires a combination of design skill, creativity and fashion industry knowledge. Creativity and artistic skill is a must-have.

It is the job of a fashion designer to put creative and artistic skills in designing and creating designer handbags.


In this modern day and era we live, we have designers who are dedicated to certain customers. Such calibre of designers specialises in tailor-making their services to suit the exact needs of their customers.


On the other hand, we also have designers whose collections are standardized. Meaning, their collections are not custom-made, hence, are more suitable for large production runs.


Food for thought 

I can’t imagine how lucky is the customer living in the modern day because has more room to choose from. Today’s customer is free to go for designer handbags made specifically to suit individual tastes. Others may prefer the standardized collections that are readily available.


How does it feel like to have a designer bag?

The feelings are a mixed bag. Some people feel guilty for buying designer bags because designer handbags are known for being expensive. The price range for name designer bags or top handbag designers is from £100 to over £1,000.


Yet, other people feel good and self-conscious. They know their valuable item does not go unnoticed. On the contrary, bystanders will be curious to find out how much the designer handbag will be worthy.


Are fake designer handbags cheap?

Choosing a suitable designer travel bag is not something to be done in a hurry. I say so because there is a vast world of designer handbags to choose from.

It gets more complicated to know that among the genuine designer handbags we also find fake designs.


Do fake designer Bags Exist?

Fake designer handbags are available on the bag market because luggage companies that manufacture fake purses and replicas at a cost three times less than the original designs are in operation.

No wonder why Briana Stewart (2014) wrote a book, How to spot a fake Designer HandbagStop Being Ripped off by Scammers: Learn How to Spot a Fake Designer Handbag for 1 mile away.

For your information, most of the fake designer bags look as good as the authentic ones. The only issue that will surface at a later stage is the genuine designer bag retains its high quality for a longer period, unlike the fake counterpart. The fake ones quickly fade and deteriorate within a short space of time of their purchase.

The choice is entirely yours choose between the fake product or the real one that is authentic.

Research findings, by Vestiare Collective, revealed that most valuable designer bags hold their value. So, you can sell them later  for a reasonable price. Other bags become even more sought after as styles and colours are discontinued. Tip: Its an area to explore to invest in.


The History Of Designer Bags

As far as Marnie Fogg (2009) can recall, designer bags for women have been around for over 100 years. ‘From Elsa Schiaparelli’s mesh bags for Whiting & Davis in the 1920s through the Hermes Kelly bag in the 1950s to the Fendi Baguette of the 1990s.”

Caroline Cox 92007) explores the history of designer handbags. She writes that the development of designer bags started in the nineteenth century with a reticule, greatly oversized bag popular today.

Meredith Etherington-Smith (2014), says, ‘Every major couturier from the 1920s, from Paul Poiret to Chanel to Vionnet and Schiaparelli, has created handbags to go with their outfits.’ As our society continues to evolve, so do our bags.

Stephanie Pedersen (2006) also see this change being inevitable. ‘Modern handbags are as much about function as they are about self-expression and even status.’

    Hi Zegu, this post is really helpful for my mom and sister to choose the best hand luggage for them. My sister used to hang out most of the time, shopping, so it is very useful for her to choose which one best suits her shopping needs. You have done a good job in choosing a large collection of hand bags and giving the details of each one in specific.

      That is true Chris. Shoppers need to be more careful. Nearly a third of the sales are now over the internet.

    Hello Zegu. I really like you site – it’s very bright and cheerful in addition to being well written and informative. The links almost jump out at you and say “click me!”

    I especially liked the information about travel luggage for children and your recommendation of a convertible suitcase/backpack.

    Great job!

    Hehehe
    There is fakeness everywhere we go. I personally don’t care if the design is original or a replica. Of course replica’s are not good because one is buying from a thieve in my perspective. This is regarding labels. As far as the art design goes, that image was not my taste but we all have different tastes.

      Thank you so much, Linda, for sparing your time to comment. Some people don’t mind buying fake designer bags especially if they already know and are making informed decisions.
      I agree with you that when it comes to designer bags people have different choices. The one in the picture is from Amazon. However, there many outlets with classic handbags including: Gucci, Chanel, Prada, Givenchy and many more.Thanks, one again, for stopping by. I appreciate.
