You can’t turn around on a New York City street without stumbling across one of the top names in designer handbags these days. While a few are new to the scene, most have been long established and continue to produce amazing bags every season.
The five most popular handbags of today include Prada, Fendi, Ed Hardy, Burberry, and Dolce & Gabbana. These bags are the most popular for many reasons, but we’ll take a look at each brand and discover WHY they are the most popular bags in the world-popular enough that perfectly sane women will pay the equivalent of a king’s ransom to have one of them hanging off their arm.
While Ed Hardy and Dolce & Gabbana are rather new to the designer handbag scene, the most popular brands are long established. Prada sprang into existence in 1913. Burberry was founded in 1856. They’ve been around for a while.
The quality of design and skill that go into making these handbags means that they are more than just a fashion accessory. The handbags are renowned for being made from expensive (and usually Italian) leather, which is soft and supple. The bags often have unique features such as typesets that have been particularly tailored to that brand; the bent ‘r’ in Prada is such an example. Other characteristics are often a durable yet quality inner lining, which is made from silk or satin, flawless leather and neatly tucked seams, and stitching that has been died or naturally colored to perfectly match the leather.
It is the quality and craftsmanship of these five brands that have made them a fashion staple for women all over the world. Carried by the rich and famous, these handbags have also become a fashion accessory for the unique.
Ed Hardy, well known for displaying his art on a huge and diverse selection of products (including the folders my kids take to school every day), offers expensive designer bags across a wide price range that are graphically different from your typical designer fashion-very, very different. While Ed Hardy also has an affordable line of handbags, his designer bags allow those with their own sense of style to find a high-end designer level handbag that fits their personality.
Prada and Fendi bags are so well made, featuring excellent craftsmanship and leather, that it’s still easy to identify an authentic bag from the many reasonably made fakes available. The sheer quality of these designer labels just can’t be equaled. The Burberry brand is similar to Ed Hardy, in that it has its own distinct characteristics. The Burberry brand is defined by its simple, clean lines and the supple leather that its bags are constructed from.
It doesn’t matter if your style is posh New York City, the rural American countryside, mosh pit, or soft rock. This lineup of the top five handbag designers includes a design for every style. If you’re the type of person who likes to go out of their way to make sure their purse matches their clothes (or their shoes, which are a personal fave), Ed Hardy’s designs can be seen on affordable clothing as well as high end boutiques, and his grunge and artistic styles aren’t limited to any generation or income.
Fendi and Prada are at the higher end of the designer scale. Their bags are made out of the world’s best leather, and lead the fashion stakes in terms of design. They have really become an essential for many stylish women. If you want to make your mother-in-law very envious at the next family get-together, then purchasing a Fendi or Prada bag may be the perfect solution! Dolce & Gabbana and Burberry also deserve their place in the list of must-have bags because of their distinctive style.
And all are guaranteed to add a little extra swing to your step each and every time you step out of your house. Cheers.
