Chanel Quilted Handbags Are Timeless

Style expert, journalist and fashion blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on the best quilted handbags including her black Chanel small classic flap bag with gold hardware.

Shopping for my first Chanel bag was tough and quite overwhelming. Owning a classic flap bag in black caviar leather with gold hardware was my dream, but I went back and forth as to whether or not I wanted that to be my first bag due to the cost. I actually waitlisted a different popular bag because it was cheaper. In my heart, I knew I wanted the classic flap and I’m glad I didn’t settle. I absolutely adore this bag! Choosing the perfect size was the least overwhelming part. I knew I wanted the small due to the fact that I’m under 5’4″. This size is perfect for me. It’s classic and in my opinion a great investment.

I updated this article in February 2023. I’ve had this bag for nearly two years and I’m still head over heels in love with it. This stunning handbag has increased in value by nearly $3,000. My only regret is not purchasing another small classic flap bag last year before the price increase. This is one of the best purchases/investments I’ve ever made! I still adore this bag and absolutely ecstatic with my purchase. I bought another classic flap bag in the color “beige Clair” in November 2022, and would love to add a white classic flap bag before the price increases again.

Fashionphile has many different Chanel classic flap bags on its website in a variety of styles, colors, conditions, and price ranges! Black caviar leather with gold hardware is hard to come by though. I found a Chanel bag with silver hardware in excellent condition that’s just as gorgeous!

If you love designer handbags or are active on Instagram, you have seen how popular the Chanel 19 handbag is, especially in the color caramel which is highly coveted and very hard to come by! At first, I wasn’t too crazy about it, but as time’s gone on, I’m quite obsessed! I dream of owning one in tweed.

The Chanel 19 was the last handbag Karl Lagerfeld designed (alongside Virginie Viard) and it’s really taken the world by storm. Fashionphile has quite a few available in a variety of colors and materials. If you’re searching for the perfect bag for spring, summer and fall, look no further than this beautiful Chanel 19 Bag in the color brown!

This gorgeous bag is quite versatile and will elevate any outfit. It will look great with white pants and a neutral sweater in the spring. This beauty will look amazing with your favorite shorts and a top in the summer; or with a blazer, sweater and straight denim jeans in the fall or winter. There are so many options!

The Chanel Mini Bag is one of the hottest bags of the year, just ask Sterling Mahomes who was recently gifted a gorgeous Chanel Mini Bag in black for her second birthday! 

The stunning Chanel Mini Rectangular Bag and Chanel Mini Square Bag are beloved by celebrities, influencers and editors. Both sizes/styles are fun, luxurious and are just two of the hottest styles of the year!

I love that the Chanel Mini Bag can be worn various ways including crossbody. It looks great with dresses, matching sets; denim shorts, tops and slides; or with wide leg pants and a chic sweater to name a few!

It is available in in leather, adorned with sequins, tweed, and more! This quilted beauty is also available in a wide array of colors. Since Barbiecore is a huge trend for 2023 (and pink being one of my favorite colors), I had to feature this fabulous Chanel Quilted Mini Square Bag in pink lambskin. This fabulous bag will be a staple in your wardrobe for years to come. It will also make a fantastic gift for the trendsetter in your life.

Trendy Bottega Veneta Quilted Handbags

It’s no secret Bottega Veneta padded slides are more popular than ever! In my opinion, their slides started the quilted movement that’s taken the world by storm! This season there are quite a few gorgeous Bottega Veneta quilted handbags to choose from. First on my list is this stunning padded cassette crossbody bag! It’s a fashion editor, influencer and celebrity favorite.

One of the many great things about this gorgeous highly coveted handbag is the adjustable shoulder strap. Having the ability to make this handbag shorter or longer is perfect women of all statures including those of us who are petite.

The interior has a one zip pocket. There is ample space for your wallet or card holder, smartphone and keys!

It is currently available in 21 bright, bold and beautiful colors. I love them all, especially in the color “chalk” for summer. It will look great paired with your favorite romper, floral print dress, or high-waisted denim jeans and a fun top, and that’s just the beginning.

If you love the padded cassette bag I featured above but would prefer one that is a bit larger you’re in luck! The stunning Nappa leather Bottega Veneta Cassette Chain Shoulder Bag is available in this slightly larger size (it measures 9″W x 6 1/2″H x 1 1/2″D) and will make a statement every time you wear it. I absolutely adore everything about it, especially the chunky chain strap, which comes in gold or in silver. This bag is perfect for the trendsetter!

I love that it can be worn as a crossbody for every day or as a top handle for date night, a holiday party or wedding guest season. The interior is ideal for a wallet, your keys, a few beauty essentials, and a smartphone.

Here we are in 2023 and the black Bottega Venetta The Chain Cassette Bag with silver hardware is still as popular as ever! This beautiful woven bag is made of luxurious soft Italian Nappa leather and will make a statement every time you carry it!

You can wear this handbag as a crossbody. It will look great with joggers, a cozy matching set; or with a blazer, straight leg denim jeans and sneakers. You can also wear it crossbody with high-waisted denim, a cardigan and flats and that’s just the beginning!

This beautiful two-in-one bag will look fabulous as a top handle handbag as well! You can wear it with a beautiful mini, midi or maxi dress. You can also wear it with one of the hottest skirts of the season – the midi skirt and strappy heel sandals or pumps. You can’t go wrong with this beautiful bag.

Saint Laurent Quilted Handbags Are A Must For Women Of All Ages

I have to agree with Bruno Mars, give me a pair of Chucks and Saint Laurent and I’m happy! Saint Laurent handbags are as popular as ever. They’re chic, come in a variety of styles, and aren’t quite as pricey as Chanel. This spring I’m obsessing over quite a few Saint Laurent quilted handbags, which are timeless, elegant and will make a statement every time you wear them.

First on my list is this black Saint Laurent Toy Loulou Quilted Crossbody Bag. I love the YSL logo/monogram on the front of the bag, the gorgeous “y-shaped matelassé stitching”, and luxurious leather. It has dual interior pockets making it ideal for your wallet, smartphone, keys, sunglasses and makeup essentials.

Another great thing about this beautiful bag is that the strap is adjustable! This is perfect for every woman – from petite to regular and tall.

With oversized bags only getting more popular, now is a great time to invest in this beautiful quilted black leather tote bag (with a YSL gold logo) which has sold out numerous times over the last few months.

This luxurious leather bag (which is beloved by style icon Hailey Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Angelina Jolie and countless other celebs) measures 14.5” L x 17”H x 4”W and has an 8.5” drop. There is ample space for your wallet, an iPad, a cozy sweater in case you get chilly, a smartphone and more!
