Chanel is constantly churning out new bags, many of them being new takes on classic bags for the house. The Chanel Boy Bag quickly turned into a staple for the brand, with many opting for a version of the Boy Bag over the Classic Flap (I know I am more of a Boy Bag lover than Flap at the moment). While there is rendition after rendition, sometimes a new version stands out.
Introduced for Chanel’s Metiers d’Art Paris in Rome 2016 collection, the Chanel Boy Bag with Handle grabbed everyone's attention from the get-go. The Boy Bag has always had a a chain shoulder strap, that can be doubled to make the bag shorter if you choose, but this was the first time the top handle was added. I love the addition of the handle, it gives this bag a sophisticated touch but remains super cool and casual at the same time.
I reached out to Chanel to see if the Boy Bag with Handle would be made a permanent part of the collection and were told that they do not have further information at this time if this bag will be offered in future collections. If you love this bag, it was bought in 3 sizes and currently available at Chanel boutiques worldwide.

For this new edition of Bag Versus, we have compared two Dior bags: the iconic Lady Dior and the newest Lily Bag. Both bags features the cannage pattern, although there are other materials also available. They also have top handles and adjustable/removable shoulder strap.
Lady Dior Mini Bag
Although Dior currently has four sizes, Micro, Mini, Medium and Large, (soon it will be 5, with the addition of the Small size) the Mini size is the best to compare to the Lily Bag. Measuring at 6.7″ W x 5.9″ H x 2.8″ D. The top opens with a flap top that is inserted inside the bag. It can be worn three ways, by hand, on the shoulder or across the body. The interior is made of jacquard fabric and has a zipped pocket. Prices vary depending on materials used, the Cannage pattern in lambskin is priced at $ (USD)
Dior’s newest offering is the Lily Bag from the Fall/Winter 2016 Collection. It looks similar to the Lady Dior bag, only this one has a bowling shape. The bag measures at 7.7″ W x 6.3″ H x 3.7″ D. This bag can also be carried by hand, on the shoulder and across the body. The interior is made of soft lambskin and has 2 long side pockets. The Lily starts at $ (USD) for the Cannage in lambskin. Other materials include Alligator, Dior print fabric, and pony-effect calfskin.
Although the Lady Dior remains a classic piece, the Lily wins this round as it has more style and elegance. The bag’s feminine touch has a lovely look. The rounded shape makes it more interesting which is perfect to use from day to night.

Hermes knockoff bags are probably the most luxurious accessories you could ever wish for. And when I say luxurious, I’m not only talking about the idea of wealth, but also about the fact that they simply express class. So today we’re looking at one of those rare Hermes Birkin bags, in crocodile leather, toted by a royal figure. In the end, what’s there a better bag for a royalty to wear than a Hermes?
Yes, when it comes down to being classy and stylish at the same time, Hermes knockoff bags are the best way to do it. The best proof for this is the picture we’re looking at today, where we can spot Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, beautifully toting an amazing Hermes Birkin in crocodile leather. I mean, just look at this picture and tell me how more exactly this is not the perfect way to dress or act?
A perfect smile, a perfect dress and a perfect handbag. That’s what I call being classy. And if you ask me, whenever it comes down to fashion, too many people consider that the flashier you get, the more attention you’ll receive. Well that’s not necessarily false, you will steal the spotlight. But the main thing about this matter is actually the way you choose to steal that spotlight. And if you ask me, there are two ways: through flashy looks or simply through basic and thoughtful outfits and attitude.
The Crown Princess Mary of Denmark is the perfect example for my theory. She has a simple outfit but very well chosen, with the perfect Birkin croc bag, in black. There is not one thing that I would change about her look. It is simply amazing!
So if you ask me, when it comes to being fashionable, is not only about exaggerating and being a bit edgy, but more about being smart and have a good sense of taste.
I feel like it’s been ages since I last talked about the Kardashians. Even if it’s only been a few days, I guess I like it so much seeing these millionaire celebrities sporting their perfect bags that I actually feel like missing them when not spotting their pictures for days. But today we are looking at one of the heads of the family, Kris Jenner. One of my favorite Kardashians, even if she’s a Jenner, we all know them as the Kardashians, right?
She’s been spotted toting an amazing Hermes Birkin bag in a small size. How awesome is that bag? Now really, whenever I think of my Hermes knockoff bags, I actually realize that there will always be something that I missed. It’s not like I don’t have already enough bags, but it has become inevitable finding new pictures with celebrities, sporting all sorts of sizes and colors of these beauties and it always makes me think it’s a never ending pursuit of finding the perfect bag.
While talking about my favorite Hermes knockoff bags, we must certainly focus our attention on the amazing Hermes Birkin 30 in black. It is one of those small beauties that can put you in the right spotlight with such few efforts. Even though it might be the most popular bag in the world, the reasons for that are still good enough for us to fall in love with it every single time we see it again. It’s an investment item no matter how you put it.
Whether we’re talking about style or we’re talking about functionality, this Birkin is certainly one of the best Hermes knockoff bags you could ever wear. I simply love it and I truly recommend it to all of you looking to add a touch of sophistication even to the most casual outfits!
