1. Ferragamo Studio Bag
An emblem of style and elegance, the ultra-versatile Ferragamo Studio Bag is destined for long lasting success. A modern and sophisticated design with iconic details tailored for the woman seeking a contemporary and minimal aesthetic. Launched in 2018 the Ferragamo Studio Bag celebrates the founder’s first studio. Made of natural-grain calfskin, this small-sized version features a front zip pocket, a large lined interior compartment and a practical removable pouch. The metal closure with Gancini buckle and the studded bottom make it unique and original.
This is a classic style of the brand that in my opinion is the perfect work bag, and a great alternative for the Birkin.
2. Prada Galleria
Few things are more classic than the Prada Galleria bag, rooted in tradition, the Galleria is more than just a bag, it’s an icon. Though the bag was originally introduced in 2007, the history of the bag dates back to Prada’s beginnings. The bag gets its name from the “Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II”, which is where Mario Prada opened his first store in Milan in 1913. A hallmark of Prada’s 21st century identity, the design was first offered in Saffiano leather. Which is a scratch and water-resistant calfskin, a material patented by Mario Prada and still a hallmark of the brand today. Reminiscent of the frame-shapes and medicine-style bags popular in the mid-century, the Galleria bag references classic styles of the past. It also exemplifies Prada’s century-old excellence in the manufacture of leathergoods.
This bag represents everything that Prada’s DNA is rooted in.
3. Delvaux Tempête
Taking its cues from the original shape first created in 1967, the Tempête offers a classic style for everyday use. Inspired by a sailboat’s trapeze, the Tempête’s graphic lines and distinctive jewel-like silver studded clasps have made it one of Delvaux’s most emblematic bags. The Tempête can be worn with or without its strap, allowing it to be worn in multiple ways. Its signature studded clasps offer refined glamour and can remain open or closed to offer two distinct attitudes and styles.
Some people say this bag served as an inspiration for the Birkin bag, so I would say this is an amazing option!
4. Mulberry Bayswater
A timeless and classic shoulder bag, the Bayswater family unites the very best of Mulberry’s craft heritage and effortless style. The original Bayswater’s understated shape and finish were designed to showcase the exceptional level of leather quality, proudly finished with Mulberry’s signature hardware: The Postman’s Lock. Its interior belts meant its size was adjustable, making a Bayswater ideal for any lifestyle. First launched in 2003, the Bayswater was an instant favorite among women of all styles, subcultures and generations. The versatility, adaptability and elegance of this style became the signatures of the Bayswater family. They are carried through each iteration of its silhouette, from deconstructed satchel to collectable mini.
With the round top handles and the lock in the front, this bag is similar to the Birkin but has a more laidback style.
5. Saint Laurent Sac de Jour
The most classic of all Saint Laurent bags the Sac De Jour was designed in 2013 by then creative director Hedi Slimane. Representative of this era the Sac De Jour or bag of the day was inspired by the Hermès Birkin. It is one of those bags that will never go out of style. This bag also does not have flashy logos, only a small Saint Laurent Paris marking near the top. This bag is elegant, chic and fashionable and with the different sizes offered they can easily go from work, to lunch, to a night out.
