Investment Worthy Bags for 2024

As someone who has many handbags in their closet, I highly recommend investing in high quality handbags with great craftsmanship that retain at least 85% of their value. An investment worthy bag should last a lifetime. The best investment worthy bags include the Hermes Birkin, the Lady Dior, classic Chanel flap bag, Celine luggage bag, and the Louis Vuitton Neverfull.

The first bag on the investment worthy list is the Hermes Birkin Bag. The Hermes Birkin remains one of the best investment handbags of all time. These luxury bags have the highest resale value if you ever decide you want to sell your bag. The timeless tote design is the epitome of quiet luxury and chic.

Each Birkin bag is made by one Hermes artisan and takes 48 hours to create. If your budget allows for it, then I highly recommend the Hermes Birkin. I purchased my Birkin 5 years ago in Paris, and it's held up extremely well. If you are looking for a high quality bag, that is timeless, easy to style, and retains its value by 150% then the Hermes Birkin is for you.

Today, the Lady Dior bag is one of the most coveted bags that Dior sells making it an investment worthy bag. The lady Dior is extremely versatile, it features 2 top handles and a cross-body strap. This bag is perfect for the daytime or an evening out. The Lady Dior comes in 5 different sizes which allows you to pick which size works best for you.

This iconic bag first hit the fashion scene in 1995, when it was presented to Princess Diana. The story goes, after she received her first Lady Dior bag, which was called “Chouchou” at the time, she ordered a new one every season. After the passing of Princess Diana, Dior changed the name in order to pay tribute, calling the bag Lady Dior.

This is easily one of the most desired and recognizable designer bags ever to exist. A must for every handbag collection.

Chanel is notorious for raising their prices. I recommend if you are thinking about purchasing a Chanel bag to purchase one from the vintage market from the pre-2008 circa, which is when they stilled used 24k plated gold for their hardware.

What is the best LV Bag to buy

The most iconic Louis Vuitton bag that is worth investing in is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull. This bag is an incredible tote, with high quality straps that can hold up to 200 lbs, is instantly recognizable, and is extremely popular. If you are interested in this bag, you better move quickly because rumor has it the LV Neverfull in canvas material is only going to be sold via a waitlist in stores.

Louis Vuitton makes several timeless bags, the one I wear the most often is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull. I’ve had my Louis Vuitton Neverfull for almost 10 years now and with a little treatment every 6 months it is still in great condition. I highly recommend the Louis Vuitton Neverfull if you are looking for a daytime bag that can carry everything you need and more!
