Minimalist designer handbags we’re loving in 2024

We've already recounted our picks for the trending and best designer handbags this year. From Bottega Veneta's Gemelli Bag to the Dior Large Toujour bag, these have been the clear favourites of the fashion community and have already been spotted on the arms of our favourite style icons.

But what if you're looking for something a little less... bold? Sometimes it's appropriate to mix things up and choose something without the logo quilting, charms and chunky hardware. With the old money and quiet luxury aesthetics very much still having a moment, we feel poised to opt for a carry-all that does more by saying less.

Without further ado, below you'll find our edit of minimalist designer handbags. Picked from amongst the designers of the moment and our favourite minimalist fashion brands, these timeless pieces will carry you from season to season without breaking sweat.
