The Best of Gucci & Louis Vuitton: 6 Iconic Bags Perfect for Everyday

What makes a bag iconic? Right from the fabric of the bag, to its construction - there are many things that a designer takes into consideration before designing a bag. Some bags have a harder exterior and appear very box-like, and still exude a timeless charm, while others like some Louis Vuitton classic bags and Gucci classic bags have a softer texture and finish. 

An iconic bag is one that empowers its wearer, leaves a lasting impression for all the right reasons, and stays true to its value for years to come.

Here are of the best handbag brands to invest in 2020 in the form of 10 perfect bags for your daily wear -

Right from 1896 to when Georges Vuitton first designed the famous LV logo by interlocking LVs with florals, the LV monogram motifs have become an instantly recognizable feature of LV.

When it comes to tote bags, LV remains one of the most trusted, go-to brands, both for utility reasons as well as aesthetics. Of Louis Vuitton’s classic bags, this limited-edition interpretation of the classic monogram tote is no less.

#4 - The Sylvie by Gucci - 

Of Gucci classic handbags, the Sylvie is our favorite. Seen on the likes of Hailey Baldwin, Elizabeth Olsen and many more, the Sylvie from the house of Gucci is a distinct story in itself. The Sylvie’s distinct rectangular-box shape, gold chain and tricolored ribbon running down the front half of the bag, makes it instantly recognizable. The Sylvie Gucci classic bags come with two straps - a leather shoulder strap and a grosgrain ribbon which concerts the top handle to a shoulder bag. 

This season, the Sylvie is back in an exquisite, never-seen-before bubblegum pink and hibiscus red in the top handle and petite versions of the bag.
