If you’ve been saving up your pennies to buy a designer bag, now is the time to make your move.
The January sales are in full swing and even if you’ve been avoiding them until now, you’ll find there are some pretty amazing pieces on offer from luxury labels like Ganni, Gucci, JW Anderson and Chloé, to name a few.
There’s no hiding from the fact we’re currently in the midst of a pretty scary cost of living crisis. Perhaps investing in an expensive bag is the last thing on your mind, but we’re a nation of bargain-hunters.
In 2022, Black Friday sales hit a record high with online sales rising by 2.3% when compared to 2021. While we’re all having to cut down on spending as our energy bills rise astronomically, it looks like we’re not giving up shopping completely.
So instead of disregarding the idea of a designer bag entirely, I decided to do some digging to find some of the best bags on sale right now.
If you’ve got the same idea, let me help you. While designer brands rarely offer sales on their own websites and in-stores, there are plenty of stockists that do.
If scrolling through thousands – and yes, I really mean thousands – of bags sounds like your idea of hell, you’ll be glad to know it’s my idea of heaven, and I’ve already done it for you.
Here’s my pretty long shortlist, including arm candy from Gucci, Balenciaga, Valentino and more.
