Whether you look back or forward, box bags have always been chic essentials in the fashion world. Not only good to keep our wallets, cardholders, phones and cosmetics organised, the box bag also exudes a bold yet elegant style. 

From the classics to new trendy comers, these are the ones that we’re feeling right now. 

Dior: 30 Montaigne

Inspired by the House’s birthplace in Paris, Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri created the new 30 Montaigne handbag to represent the identity of Dior. Featuring an eye-catching gold-coloured clasp with the initial “CD”, the bag comes in five colours and two monogram prints. Well-proven by fashion influencers such as Chiara Ferragni, Chriselle Lim, Natalia Vodianova, Susie Bubble and Yoyo Cao, the bag goes well with not only casual wear, but also evening dresses if you’re planning a night out.

Ever since fashion designer Ricardo Tisci has been appointed as the Chief Creative Officer of Burberry, we’ve seen mind-blowing changes of the House’s new collection and the Spring/Summer’19 campaign. In memory of the founder Thomas Burberry, his initials ‘TB’ are embellished in the monogram leather bag. Spanning from small, medium to large sizes, it comes in different colours such as black, dark brown and crimson.

Founded in 1961, Saint Laurent, never lets us down when it comes to accessories. The new leather bag ‘Le 61’ is an ode to the brand’s identity throughout the decades. What we love the most about this bag is how vintage it looks. We’re pretty confident that when you look back after years, it will still look spectacular with a white shirt and a pair of denim jeans. Colours such as black, white, midnight blue and dark green will never go wrong with your outfits. 

Celine: Triomphe

Creative Director Heidi Slimane introduced the Triomphe box bag after his appointment in 2018. Inspired by the 1973 logo, it’s pretty similar to one of the most famous monuments in Paris, the Arc de Triomphe. Whether you’re an aficionado of old Celine or not, it’s time to consider to update your bag collection now.
