The 6 most famous women's handbags that changed the world of fashion

The history of fashion is rich in fashionable leather handbags. Worn by style icons such as Kate Moss, Princess Diana and Grace Kelly, they continue to be at the top of the popularity charts. The so-called "It-Bags" are characterized by their high price and low availability, which makes them even more desirable for fashionistas. Would you like to get to know the most iconic handbags of the last decades? Here are six models the world has mourned and still mourns.


I. The most famous handbags - Coco Chanel 2.55

The first of the most famous handbag models in the world is the Chanel 2.55. Black quilted leather, a rectangular shape, a clasp with the French brand's logo and long ears adorned with a chain are the hallmarks of this iconic handbag. Though her cut has undergone numerous changes over the years, those few features have remained the same since 1955, when Coco Chanel herself designed the first model. The Chanel 2.55 is characterized by its timeless style, its elegant character and its excellent workmanship. It is therefore not surprising that it is one of the most coveted handbags in the world. Their value ranges from 5,000 euros for smaller handbags to almost 7,000 euros for larger models.

II. The most famous handbags - the iconic Lady Dior

Another it bag is the Chouchou by Dior, now known as Lady Dior. The bag became famous before it officially hit stores, thanks to none other than Princess Diana herself. When Lady Di received the bag as a gift from French First Lady Bernadette Chirac in 1995, she wore it almost everywhere with enthusiasm. As one of the greatest personalities of the 20th century and probably the most photographed woman of her time, Lady Diana quickly made the luxury handbag popular. Today, the iconic Lady Dior handbag is available at prices between 3,000 and 8,000 euros.

III. The most famous handbags - the Louis Vuitton "Speedy

A list of the most popular women's handbags would not be complete without the "Speedy" handbag from French fashion house Louis Vuitton. The history of the iconic model dates back to 1930, when it was the first women's handbag to be offered by this luxury brand, previously known for producing suitcases and trunks. Reportedly, Audrey Hepburn was the initiator of downsizing at Louis Vuitton, who asked the designer to create a smaller version of the previous bestseller 'Keepall' for her. The actress' favorite handbag features a suitcase shape, short handles and the monogram prominently displayed on the walls of the bag.The price of the "Speedy" model is around 1,000 to 2,000 euros.

IV. The most famous handbags - the "Baguette" from Fendi

Another popular handbag that every true fashionista should know about is the "Baguette" model, designed by the granddaughter of the founder of the Italian fashion house Silvia Venturini Fendi. Of course, it owes its name to the baguette. Like a loaf of Parisian bread, the iconic baguette is designed to be carried under the arm. Despite its small size, the Fendi Baguette can accommodate everything a lady needs - purse, phone, lipstick and other small accessories. The bag from the Italian brand has joined the ranks of the most luxurious accessories in the fashion world almost overnight. Not for nothing was the character played by Sarah Jessica Parker in an episode of the cult series "Sex in the City" robbed in a hotel by a thief, whereupon she exclaimed: "But it's a baguette!". This fact has left an indelible mark on people in the fashion world. The "Baguette" is one of the most expensive handbags in the world and can be purchased for 1,000 to 8,000 euros, depending on the variant.

V. the most famous handbag - the "Jackie" from Gucci

Like the Lady Dior handbag, Gucci's iconic Jackie Kennedy handbag debuted under a completely different name - the Fifties Constance. It was the first hobo bag in fashion history, as the then First Lady of the United States took a liking to it and used it to hide her face from the paparazzi. In this simple way, the Gucci bag brought enormous glamor to the Italian fashion house and made it onto the list of the most popular handbags in the world. An original Jackie Kennedy handbag from the fashion house Gucci costs around 1,000 to 1,500 euros.

VI. the most famous handbags - the 'Vela' from Prada

The latest, but no less popular handbag to shake up the fashion world is the Prada Vela. When Miuccia Prada took over the family business in 1977, she was dissatisfied with the brand's current offering, describing it as stuffy and boring. So she decided to start a revolution and turn the fashion empire upside down. This is how the first nylon backpack "Vela" was created in 1984. Initially, he had no logo and his style was more military-sporty. Although it broke with the brand's image, it quickly won the hearts of fashionistas, especially those who preferred comfortable solutions.
