As the name suggests, ‘Classic Greats’ is a selection of established luxury brands that are known for their iconic designs. Designs that are sought after, with a classic shape and/or pattern that will withstand the test of time. And if you’re on the hunt for your own forever classic, know that NET-A-PORTER has a pretty wide range, including the 5 featured here.
01 – Bottega Veneta Chain Knot Watersnake-Trimmed Intrecciato Satin Clutch
The iconic Knot may have been created by Tomas Maier, but his signature creation remains a true classic at the house of Bottega Veneta. Ladies constantly find themselves returning to the Knot whenever they need a bag that’s small and chic for an evening dinner, with this exotic version rendered in a satin finish (USD2434) that’s a perfect fit for a couple of makeup essentials and several essential cards.
02 – Fendi Mon Tresor Small Embossed Leather Bucket Bag
Fendi’s Mon Tresor bucket bag took the world by storm when it launched early 2018 in a small yet simple shape that’s armed with all the necessary elements like a removable top handle and long shoulder strap that allows for multiple ways of carrying. For Spring-Summer 2019, the bag (USD1818) comes embossed with the signature ‘double F’ monogram, in a deep red leather that’s totally perfect for the season.
03 – Gucci GG Marmont Mini Quilted Velvet Shoulder Bag
Gucci’s GG Marmont Mini Quilted Shoulder Bag (USD1629) comes in a plush velvet finish that’s soft to the touch, yet retains its sturdy shape to hold all your everyday essentials within. Measuring 22 cm wide by 13 cm high, the bag opens to a contrasting teal silk-satin interior, with an internal open pocket that would fit your mobile device. Slide the chain strap long and carry it over the shoulder or loop it twice to make it a short handle bag.
04 – Loewe Gate Mini Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag & Loewe Puzzle Mini Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag
Two classic bags rendered in a mini size? Why not. The Mini Gate (USD1407) comes in a pink textured-leather and will fit your cards, keys, lipstick and the like, all secured within the knotted strap that doubles up as a closure for the front flap. The Mini Puzzle (USD1818), on the other hand, features hand-painted lines outlining the architectural panels of the iconic bag, and is one that will fit a tad bit more thanks to a roomier base.
05 – Saint Laurent Vicki Small Quilted Patent-Leather Shoulder Bag
The Vicki (USD2086) is one that comes with a glamorous, sexy appeal thanks to a quilted patent leather body that’s guaranteed to give maximum shine, perfect for carrying to your evening parties and the like. Armed with a slinky gold chain strap, the bag looks best worn over the shoulder or across the chest, keeping you hands-free on the go. Aside from a roomy interior, there’s also a slip pocket at the back that will fit handy notes and cards, or even store your receipts if you’re lazy to unfasten the front flap that comes adorned with the iconic interlocking YSL logo plaque.
