Chanel’s classic 2.55 Flap Bag is both classic and current, a key to its enduring allure. “Reinterpreted in cool colors and fabrications, worn crossbody by today’s young fashionistas, and even carried like a clutch, women of all generations gravitate to this tried and true style,” says Senior Director of Authentication, Graham Wetzbarger. “With annual price increases of more than 10%, the 2.55 is one of the few handbags to appreciate in value.”

7. Chanel Cap-Toe Flats

In the house’s recognizable monogram or Damier canvas, the Neverfull is a favorite of Louis Vuitton fans. But also, explains Skoda, “The Neverfull is popular because it’s so versatile. It’s super lightweight, and it makes a great travel bag, work bag, you name it.”

3. The Céline Mini Luggage Tote

Phoebe Philo is a master of the modern It bag, and when it comes to her first hit for Céline, the Luggage Tote, its coveted status shows no signs of waning. With its recognizable (and oft imitated) shape and absence of overt logos, it’s a staple of street style stars.

2. The Prada Saffiano Tote

It’s no surprise Prada’s signature Saffiano is at the top of the most wanted list. “Saffiano Luxe Totes are covetable not only because of their recognizable shape but because they come in many different colors and several sizes,” explains Wetzbarger. “They’re extremely durable and very functional. The clean lines and minimal hardware make their style timeless.”
