The Best: Status Bags You’ve Never Seen

November 14th, 2005

Birkin, Balenciaga, Botkier, Bulga…Anyone tired of hearing the same old status bag names over and over again?

We went on a recent handbag hunt to find a status bag that doesn’t scream "I WANT TO BE COOL" but rather a purse that would garner quiet but notable attention and give off that "I’m money but way too classy to flash it in your face" feel. These purses may cost you a pretty penny, but they’ll be worth it once everyone stops you to ask, "Whose bag are you wearing?"

    You could add the Bottega Venetta woven hobo. Absolutely gorgeous, timeless classic!

    We totally agree…and have been saving up for one, even if it takes forever. After all, a million years later, the Bottega Veneta will still remain understated and classy.

    We can’t believe you found our bag (the Lorca Flap Demi) – we’re just thrilled you think our Lorca is an attention getter… we tend to agree! All the best, Ben (& Toni)
