7 Factors to Consider When Buying a Designer Bag

Any reason is a good reason to treat yourself to a new designer handbag from London. Perhaps you’ve been offered a gift by somebody close to you, have some extra money spare to spend after getting a promotion at work or starting a new job, have sold an expensive asset, or have been saving up for a while to get the bag of your dreams and want to celebrate your achievement.

But with so many designer handbags to choose from and many with fairly expensive price tags, making sure that you pick one that you really love and will get a lot of use out of is essential. Take your time to research different types of bags to find one that you need in your life.

Brands

Many people go into buying a designer bag with just a couple of brands in mind, but this can be very restrictive. It is not a secret that Louis Vuitton bags are worth every penny because of their high-quality materials, fashion-oriented details, and resistance features. But let's be honest, there are way more options out there for you to try.

Sure, everybody has their favourite designer brands, but unless you’re certain that this is the only one that you want, it’s worth looking around at all the options available in London as you might be surprised as to what you can find. Don’t just go for a designer brand because it’s the one that’s trending right now unless you’re lucky enough to find a bag by them that meets all your needs.

Budget

Designer handbags from London come at both ends of the price scale and you could pay a couple of hundred pounds or a few thousand. Knowing how much you want to spend and being firm about it before you start will ensure that you’re looking in the right places for your dream bag and don’t end up being disappointed when you find a bag that you love, but it’s completely out of your price range.

Take it Online

Go into designer stores to have a look and feel of the bags, but don’t walk straight out with the bag that you love. You can often get great deals online, so if you’re looking to save money on one of these Loewe bags, it’s worth exploring designer outlet stores like SSENSE to see if you could save money by online shopping; you could even have enough left over to get the matching wallet as well. This store offers a range of Loewe bags plus options from a range of other designers with designs and prices to suit everybody.

Consider Usability

There’s no point in treating yourself to a designer bag from London if you’re not going to end up using it very often. No matter how much you like the look of a bag, if you’re looking for something that’s going to be your main handbag, usability should be one of your biggest priorities. Of course, you might just want a bag that you can keep aside to take to events every so often, in which case this might not be so important. But if you want a bag that you can use day-to-day, consider how suitable it’s going to be for your lifestyle before making the purchase.

Size

What do you plan to keep in your bag? If you want a bag for carrying your laptop, wallet, keys, water bottle, ID cards, and anything else that you tend to carry with you on a daily basis, the size is going to matter. The last thing that you want is to invest in a designer bag only to find out that it’s completely unsuitable to take to work because your laptop won’t fit in it fully. Be sure to look at the dimensions of the bag before you buy it and check out photos of models using it so that you can get an idea of the proportions.

Outfits

If you want an everyday designer bag, consider what you tend to wear and how well your bag is going to match with them. If you prefer dressing in plainer, monochrome colours, then you might want to go for a brighter, more interesting bag to add a pop of colour to your outfits. On the other hand, if you could be wearing anything from a range of different colours every day, pick a bag that won’t clash - neutral colours like black, brown, grey, cream, and white are ideal choices that will go with almost anything you decide to wear.

Storage

Finally, consider how you are going to store your bag when it is not in use. Make sure that you have space in your home to place your bag securely in a dry, cool place - ideally in a bag box or in the protective bag that you’ll get included. When your bag is not being used, storing it correctly will keep it in good condition and avoid any damage, allowing you to enjoy it for longer and get more for it should you decide to sell it on in the future.
