New Year, New Bag

New Year, New Bag

Here at Rhea we see bags as investment pieces that will last us a lifetime. After all, trends recycle every few decades. And seeing as it's a New Year, we've already (guiltily) added a few items to our wish list that we'd love to share with you. Instead of fancy-schmancy party looks, here are five bags that we think are not only pretty to carry, but also extremely practical and useful. 


1. Chloé - Marcie

As much as we're huge fans of the Drew, we're falling in love with the elegant lines and beautiful shape of the Marcie. This small cross-body one in cashmere grey is perfect as an everyday bag.

HK$5,740 / £475 from Lane Crawford.

2. Saint Laurent - Sac Université

This suede version in camouflage print will easily bring a cool-girl vibe to your outfit. Wear it with the camo strap, or an additional ecru canvas strap to switch things up.

HK$15,900 / £1,190 from Net-A-Porter.

3. Bottega Veneta

A classic intrecciato leather shoulder bag reworked in this baby lavender color for a sophisticated lunch or dinner date.

HK$11,500 / £870 from Net-A-Porter.

4. Givenchy - Mini Antigona

Mini bags are trending and practical (see above), and this version of the classic Antigona bag is no exception. You can fit all your necessities in this red textured leather one while still looking modern and composed. 

HK$13,899 / £1,250 from Net-A-Porter.

5. Chloé - Georgia

Perfect for festivals, traveling or a long day out, this reworked version of the Georgia is in fact a convertible leather belt bag. Crafted from smooth peach leather, this bag is both pretty and practical.

HK$2,890 / £575 from Net-A-Porter.
