The bold and the beautiful: statement bags for maximalist in you

As the days grow longer and our social calendars hit their maximum capacity, we find ourselves sifting through our wardrobes only to settle on the same safe clutch time and time again. Instead of waiting for Santa to deliver this month, treat yourself early with our curation of the best statement bags of the season.

In the garden of Gucci

The Ophidia GG Floral from Gucci is a work of art in itself, a tribute to the work of Italian illustrator, Vittorio Accornero. Featuring the iconic Flora motif layered over the house monogram, a white leather trim frames the artistic façade and is accented with the classic double G logo. The unique bag is highlighted with a gold chain shoulder strap that sits effortlessly across any outfit, be it day or night. With two lined compartments to separate your tech from your beauty products, style has never looked so effortless.

Wearable art

Loewe’s capsule collection, inspired by ceramicist William De Morgan, has brought us some of the most incredible carriers, including the small Gate floral bag. A timeless saddle-shape crafted in leather, embroidered with a textured floral motif that sits neatly in a classic Loewe knotted bow. The soft calf leather straps are easily adjustable for the perfect length and a gold suede lining ensures your possessions will travel comfortably. With tones of amber and burnt orange, we’re already imagining how this bag will look in the golden hours of summer.

The true classic

The iconic Fendi baguette is back and better than ever this season with the baguette mini cage. The chic mini carrier comes complete with a detachable leather cage that features an adjustable strap, pocket and wireless headphone holder. If you decide to go sans-cage, the bag can be carried as a clutch or worn over the shoulder with a gold chain strap.

V is for Valentino

If you’re looking for something bright and white this holiday season, the Valentino Garavani small shoulder bag is your perfect partner. Compact enough to hold all the essentials, the smooth calfskin leather is accented with antique brass-finish hardware. The matching leather shoulder strap features an adjustable gold chain for when you can’t decide on a long or short option. A magnetic V closure completes the bag, which has a luxurious red nappa leather interior to hold your essentials. All we want for Christmas.
