Handbags are not just accessories. We put together our lives inside a handbag. And the bag we carry defines our phase of life as well. And after all that, designer handbags are literally an investment as well. With the high cost attached, it makes sense to think, analyse and then buy a handbag. Here are our top choices for what we think are the perfect handbag in any woman’s life.

1. Hermes Kelly Bag: Ever since its origins in 1935, Hermes’ Kelly has remained the most coveted Hermes bag. Made-to-order with highly customizable features make it worth the investment. Plus getting through the endless waiting list ensures your status in the society when you carry this much desired handbag! The Kelly bag has a trapezium shape. Four studs on the bottom, itself made of three layers of leather, enable it to stand on the ground. Sold in eight sizes, the bag’s padlock, keys and hardware are made of white or yellow gold. Offered in hard and soft constructions, each Kelly bag requires 18 to 25 hours of handicraft, with each item being created by a single artisan. Inspired by the American-born Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco, no wonder that Kelly has been imprinted in everybody’s consciousness.

2. Chanel 2.55 Bag: Nothing says “You have arrived!” better than the Chanel 2.55. It is the most famous handbag, but few know its history. In the 1920s, Coco Chanel became tired of having to carry her handbags in her arms and decided to design a solution. Inspired by the straps found on soldiers' bags, she added thin straps and introduced the resulting design in 1929. After her successful comeback to fashion in 1954, Chanel decided to update her handbag. The resulting design was called 2.55 after the date of creation, February 1955. The quilted pattern of the bag was original at the time of the creation, so were the chain straps, making it look industrial and elegant at the same time! No wonder women scurried about for this one.

3. Fendi Baguette: Made famous by Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City, Fendi Baguette is exactly what it promises through its name: a small bag that can be tucked inside your arms – just like the eponymous French loaf of bread. Designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi in 1997, Fendi Baguette is still available with new designs and colours been released every year! It was then, and still is, the ‘It’ bag – perfectly well-suited for a party night or that quick day-time trip.

4. Lady Dior Bag: Named after the glamourous, fashionable Princess Diana, Lady Dior is one of Dior’s ultimate must-have handbags. Designed in 1995, Princess Diana received it as a gift from France’s former first lady Bernadette Chirac, and became an instant success as soon as the first magazine covers featured Lady Diana with it. Post its meteoric rise, Dior sold 200,000 models of the bag in two years, and Dior's leather goods turnover increased tenfold. Inspired by the popularity, Dior shared the name of the bag with a watch in 1999 and a makeup product by Parfums Christian Dior. Again, you are sharing history when you pick this one up!
