The New Birkins and Kellys? Hermès Bag Alternatives!

The New Birkins and Kellys? Hermès Bag Alternatives!

Welcome to our post about The New Birkins and Kellys!

Every luxury brand dreams of having a bag as iconic and famous as the Hermès Birkin and the Kelly, but of course, that is yet to be accomplished. Here I’ll show you bags that people claim will be the next Birkins or Kellys. Only time will tell if they will actually be this iconic, but my bet is they won’t. I’ll also include some great affordable alternatives to Hermès bags. This postwas inspired by a Cassie Thorpe YouTube video, which will also be linked bellow.

So, without further ado here are The New Birkins and Kellys:


1. The Row Margaux Bag

This is the bag people are claiming to be the next Birkin, it is extremely popular and also has a timeless style, but in my opinion it lacks the history of Hermès bags. Every detail of The Row’s ‘Margaux’ tote is carefully considered. Crafted in Italy from leather or suede, it has a structured silhouette supported by gold-tone buckles along the sides and protective feet at the base. The interior is fitted with three pockets and offers enough room for a change of clothes, beauty essentials and your laptop – everything you need for an overnight trip or long-haul flight.

This is a timeless elegant tote bag you will be loving for years, its quality is comparable to Hermès!

2. Loro Piana Pouch

With a similar style to the mini Kelly and the Kelly Pochette this might not be as iconic as Hermès but it is a great alternative. This Loro Piana Pouch will be a staple all your life! The timeless pouch bag has earned its place on the pedestal of classic accessories. Loro Piana women’ pouches are meticulously crafted in the finest materials and are an essential wardrobe staple to pair with any outfit. It is a super-versatile mini bag, styled with a shoulder strap so you can wear it by hand or crossbody.

The embodiment of quiet luxury, this pouch is elegant, practical and stylish and is an amazing alternative to the Kelly.

3. Louis Vuitton Capucines

Because of its price range and limited-edition versions I believe Louis Vuitton created this bag to compete with Hermès bags. The now-classic Capucines handbag displays a host of House signatures: leather-wrapped LV Initials, jewel-like handle mounts inspired by historic trunks, and a distinctive flap with a Monogram Flower motif. Timelessly elegant, this charming model can be carried by hand or worn cross-body on its detachable strap. First launched in 2013, the Capucines is named for the Parisian street where Louis Vuitton first opened shop, in 1854. Since its launch, this bag has become one of the most famous Louis Vuitton bags. The quality of the bag and the attention to detail is unmatched.

It’s a sophisticated style, perfect for both day and night.

4. DeMellier New York Tote

This bag won’t be the new Birkin, but it is a more affordable alternative with a similar style. This eternally chic British brand that is a favorite of the royal family is well known for its classic designs, and this tote is the epitome of quiet luxury! The tote is inspired by the amazing New York City, its energy, architecture and people. Its modern yet timeless silhouette, and subtle luxury finish such as the soft grained leather and the gold belted detail makes it the perfect day bag. The roomy cotton lined interior features a zip pocket and slip pocket and can easily hold all everyday essentials plus A4 files or a laptop. 

This is an amazing everyday bag, you can take it from work to a casual lunch and even to the airport!

5. Savette Symmetry Bag

This is a new brand that still has centuries to go before it can be compared to Hermès but the Symmetry is a great more affordable alternative to the mini Kelly. Founded by designer Amy Zurek, Savette honors traditional leather craftsmanship done in a more modern manner. Each handbag is made with longevity in mind—the intention being to pass it down from generation to generation. The Symmetry family celebrates geometry in its purest forms: parallel and perpendicular lines.

Available in pouch, shoulder and crossbody variations this is one of the most elegant and paired back bags you will ever find!

6. Bottega Veneta Andiamo Tote

Of course this bag is no near as iconic as the Birkin, but it is the big bet of the brand as the next it bag. Introduced in Matthieu Blazy’s Summer 23 collection, Andiamo is the new icon of the house! Its name, Andiamo, “Let’s go” in Italian, embodies the spirit of the bag, a tribute to going places and the concept of craft in motion. The bag features a timeless Intrecciato silhouette woven by hand. A metal knot adorns and fastens the sliding braided straps, allowing it to be adjusted over the shoulder or across the body, giving the bag a soft tapered volume.

It will fit all your everyday essentials and is the ultimate expression of quiet luxury! If Bottega has any bag that might be compared to Hermès is this one!
