You want a bag to last a lifetime and even more than that if you take care of the bag and treat it well, you might want to pass it down to the next generation.

Today I’m going to share with you which bags in my opinion what are the best investment worthy designer handbags that would be great to add to your collection. Below are my favorite investment bags to buy in 2022.  

Hermes Birkin

The first bag on this list is the Hermes Birkin Bag. Unlike other brands, the Hermes Birkin only increased their price by their standard rate they do every year. The Hermes Birkin remains one of the best investment handbags of all time. Not only do these bags have a high resale value if you ever decide you want to resell your bag, they have a gorgeous design and are all made by hand.

Each Birkin bag is made by one Hermes artisan and takes 48 hours from start to finish to complete. If you only invest in one designer handbag, then I highly recommend the Hermes Birkin. 

Price Point for a New Hermes Birkin: Birkin 30 Togo with retourne stitching in the USA: $11,000

Price Point Preloved Hermes Birkin: Starts at $8,000

Lady Dior 

Another incredible bag that couldn’t be left off the list is the Lady Dior bag. The Lady Dior 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.

Today, the Lady Dior bag is one of the most coveted bags that Dior makes. This is a timeless bag that you will carry for years.

Chanel Flap Bag

I couldn’t make an investment worthy bags list without including the classic Chanel Flap Bag. Chanel made headlines this year, by announcing a staggering 21% price increase. Wooh I knew the Covid-19 was bad for the luxury industry, but increasing the prices by 21% is a tough sell. However, with that being said, the classic Chanel Flap Bag remains one of the most iconic bags of all time.

The Chanel Bag is considered one of the most desired and recognizable designer bags. Many stores will often carry this bag at their boutique.

Price Point New Chanel Medium Flap Bag: $8,800

Price Point for Preloved Chanel Flap Bag: $5,800

Celine Luggage Bag

Another investment worth bag is the Celine Luggage Bag! Launched in 2010, this bag didn’t gain popularity until a few years later under the creative director Phoebe Philo. Shortly after the redesign by Philo, famous celebrities were spotted wearing the bag. This timeless classic has ample amount of space inside and is a great investment piece, very practical, and you will wear it for years. The Celine Luggage Bag is definitely part of the investment worthy bags list!

Price Point for a New Micro Celine Luggage: $2,950

Price Point for Preloved Celine Luggage: $1,600

Louis Vuitton Neverfull 

I couldn’t create a list without including at least one bag from Louis Vuitton. With so many classic Louis Vuitton pieces to choose from, it was hard to determine which in my opinion is the most timeless piece. After some research and analysis, I’ve determined the LV Neverfull is the investment bag you should purchase. This bag is an incredible tote, and the quality is immaculate. I’ve had my Louis Vuitton Neverfull for almost 10 years now and it is still in great condition. This bag has a lower price point than some of the others, but nevertheless is still investment worthy.

If this is your year to splurge on a handbag then I highly recommend one of the top 5 investment worthy handbags I have listed above. When you invest in a high quality, timeless handbag, you won't be needing (maybe wanting), but definitely not needing a new handbag all the time.

In short, the best investment worth handbags include: The Hermes Birkin Bag, The Lady Dior, Classic Chanel Double Flap Bag, Celine Luggage Bag, and the Louis Vuitton Neverfull.
