Party bags are back! Whether you’re heading to a black-tie Christmas party or a champagne-drenched night out, you’re going to need some arm candy around your wrist or shoulder.
Let it be the time when the items on your dream wishlist come true, like, say, that glittering micro bag you’ve been looking at all year. A handful of 2021’s most coveted silhouettes come in fabulously festive iterations, perfect for upcoming celebrations, but they’re also classics in their own right. These handbags might not be your basic tote or leather shoulder strap, but they deserve to be taken out. Take Coperni’s Swipe or Alexander McQueen’s Curve mini bags, both of which now come in a spectacular crystal layer – and we’d say a little sparkle is welcome on any occasion – well beyond the holidays. Meanwhile, YSL’s Loulou Tweed Crossbody Bag and Bottega Veneta’s Ball-Embellished Chain Cassette Bags are both wonderful ways to bring joy throughout the New Year, while also housing all the essentials. you need to get out. All of these adorable accessories (and more!) Are below and illustrated in the most magical way possible. Browse our sublime selection because it’s the season for a shiny new handbag, happy shopping!
Why pray for snow when the Coperni crystal covered Swipe bag is already a reality? Let this glam and sparkly rhinestone covered top handle be the highlight of your holiday season and the most striking handbag in the room.
Why decorate a tree when you can display a little clothing decoration? Here is the Cassette chain in pristine white braided leather from Bottega Veneta with dangling golden embellishments. Wearing it is like carrying your own set of bells, and the coveted figure is sure to be the life of the party.
The holy grail of sparkling bags is undoubtedly the 1969 model in silver sequins by Paco Rabanne, a loose cross-body handbag designed with sparkling sequins. We like to think that this beautiful silver is worth serving on a silver platter and then taken for a spin. It’s a real nightclub.
That’s right, good things come in small packages, for example this toy-sized YSL Loulou tweedy. A party-friendly crossbody bag is as soft as it gets when it comes to grand gestures, and this one is playfully sparkling with an array of colorful threads reminiscent of a string of kaleidoscopic Christmas lights.
