The Season's Most Wanted Bags According to BagSnob

Tina Craig of BagSnob (now Snob Essentials) knows bags. And with everyone making holiday lists and plans to get out of town, we asked her about the season's must-have bags and what you should be carrying when you head to the airport. 

Don't worry, not everything will cost you December's rent. 


Loewe V Shoulder Bag

I am having a serious Loewe moment. I’ll wear anything J.W. Anderson creates! Available on My Theresa and at Nordstrom for $2,450.


Coach Wanted Surrey Satchel

Also having a love affair with Coach, thanks to Stuart Vevers and his reinvention of the brand. The Surrey bag says it all: Wanted. At Coach for $605.

3Derek Lam’s 10 Crosby Mini Prince Bucket Bag

This swingy bag will be swinging from my arm all season long. It’s the perfect mix of bohemian ease and urban chic; the result is a piece that’s impossibly cool, much like Derek himself.


Donatienne Mimi Backpack

I’m obsessed with Nikki Erwin’s graphic backpacks! Laidback, nonchalant, and effortless: her brand Donatienne illustrates the very definition of LA style. At Donatienne for $595. 

Victoria Beckham City Victoria Canvas and Leather Tote

 Few women exude sexy sophistication as well as Victoria Beckham. I’ll wear just about anything she tells me to, just in hopes of capturing a bit of her breed of glam for myself. On NET-A-PORTER for $2,120. 


Matching Chanel Mosaic Paneled Flap Bag and Pencil Skirt

As decadent and striking as can be, Chanel’s intricate mosaic motif in a coordinating pair is a must for the season.


Elizabeth and James Croc-Embossed Cynnie Sling Backpack

Elizabeth and James is a favorite of mine. Their croc-effect Cynnie bag eerily resembles the real thing without the hefty price tag of a legit exotic. 


Snob Essentials Gisele Tote

Our Gisele tote will take you from plane to fun effortlessly! The large pockets hold everything from passports and boarding passes to the iPhone 6+. It’s super-roomy for stashing a sweater or scarf and a pair of flats, yet the size is not overwhelming. It comes with removable shoulder strap for those hands-free days when you need to balance your Frappacino while texting your BFF the latest gossip. At Snob Essentials for $128. 


Chanel Classic Flap

A bag that needs no introduction speaks for itself. There is truly no bag more timeless, aside from perhaps the enduring Hermès Birkin, than the quilted Chanel Flap, and it’s definitely the most versatile of all.
