DO YOU HAVE ONE OF OUR MOST-WANTED HANDBAGS? READ ON.......
At Siopaella, we have a 'Most Wanted' list. We can't say they're the usual suspects who regularly make cover stars on all the top FBI lists - oh, no, no, no siree BUT we can claim we want them bad. Very, very bad. Remember Meatloaf's 'I Would Do Anything for Love'? Well, we would do anything for these designer handbags and we WILL do that. And by that I mean, hand out the big bucks. Hard cash is best served cold - fact! So, check out the top ten handbags on our wish-list. These babies will have us foaming at the mouth and eating out of the palm of your hands. Did you know if you have any of the designer handbags on our wish-list, we will also raid your wardrobe and accept pieces from Topshop, Zara, Ted Baker, & Other Stories, Cos and other high-street brands, as well as your trend-led designer pieces? Ready, set, GO!!!
1. CHLOE DREW SMALL BAG IN GRAINED LEATHER
Playful and sweet, the Chloe 'Drew' bag has been spotted on all the models and bloggers du jour, including Aimee Song of Song of Style, our fave gal pal Anouska, Olivia Palermo, Leandra Medine of Man Repeller and Miroslava Duma. In fact, just recently Who What Wear described the 'Drew' bag as the it-bag of the season! We want this baby so bad!
2. BOY CHANEL FLAP BAG, PLEATED LAMBSKIN LEATHER
The Chanel 'Boy' bag is much rougher around the edges than the classic flap. Originally introduced in the fall/winter 2011 ready-to-wear collection, this bag rates very highly on our Siopaella 'Most Wanted' top designer handbag list.
3.GIVENCHY MEDIUM PANDORA BAG IN WASHED LEATHER
It's not just the Kardashian/Jenner clan that loves Givenchy, it's the go-to brand for some of the coolest style mavens - like Rick Owens or Alexander McQueen, Riccardo Tisci conjures up dark romance in everything he does - and we like it! The Pandora bag is classic with a modern twist - it's renowned for being lightweight and the perfect travel companion!
Imagine having this draped across your arm at the airport. Now imagine David Gandy draped across your arm. Just because! Louis Vuitton does the most covetable canvas bags - I feel a mini-break looming!
5. CLASSIC LARGE MONOGRAM SAINT LAURENT SATCHEL IN ROYAL BLUE GRAIN DE POUDRE TEXTURED MATELASSÉ LEATHER
This handbag is sold out on almost every e-commerce website including My Theresa, Luisaviaroma, Net-a-Porter, SSense, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Farfetch, Selfridges and Harrods which is why we are dying to get our hands on one! Saint Laurent Paris, we heart you!
6. ALEXANDER MCQUEEN HEROINE MINI TEXTURED LEATHER SHOULDER BAG
Alexander McQueen's accessories are the perfect combination of dark glamour - gorgeous finishing and practicality but rough around the edges. We love that the Alexander McQueen 'Heroine' bag because it has a cross-body strap as well as short arm straps! It's a two-for (our cool word for two-for-the-price-of-one)!
7. LOUIS VUITTON PETITE MALLE - DAMIER EBENE CANVAS
We love how Nicholas Ghesquiere has evoked the true spirit of the original Louis Vuitton brand and incorporated the heritage luggage theme into the new accessories and ready-to-wear. The Louis Vuitton Petite Malle is THE it-bag everyone wants and we are no different!
8. CHANEL CLASSIC FLAP BAG - LAMBSKIN AND GOLD METAL
The inimitable bag loved by Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Diane Kruger and Alexa Chung alike, there really is nothing more to be said about the Chanel classic flap bag. You have it - we buy it!
9. CELINE TRIO CROSSBODY BAG
Three bags for the price of one. Phoebe Philo, Joan Didion, oh Celine, there are so many reasons to love Celine. So, dearest Celine, how much do we love you? SO much! The trio is extremely hard to source and we are longing for our very own!
10. HERMES BIRKIN 35CM BLACK WITH GOLD HARDWARE
The kind of stuff that dreams are made on. Hermes dreams. Our stylists sometimes like to pretend to be Kylie Jenner and don our Hermes Kelly. The Birkin is the ultimate bag which makes it one of our 'Most Wanted.'
