From Saint Laurent to Gucci, Burberry to Dior, these are the new-season offerings that will never go out of style
If you're thinking of splurging on a new designer handbag, then it's worth considering a style that will stand the test of time, rather than just a one-season wonder that will eventually end up gathering dust in your wardrobe. For this, the best option is either to look to the classics – some which may have had a modern makeover, but are still very much trend-free – or to snap up designs that have an endless elegance about them.
So here, we round up 25 of the best designer handbags which are unlikely to date any time soon. Many will be names you'll be familiar with; from the iconic Fendi Baguette and the Hermès Kelly to the Louis Vuitton NéoNoé and Dior's Book Bag, these are the accessories that are actually worth investing in.
