1. Expert craftmanship
If you want a handbag that will elevate every outfit in your wardrobe, then a designer bag is exactly what you need. Made with love, care, and the highest precision to detail, the quality structure, and craftsmanship of a designer bag will be apparent for all to see.
Take Judith Leiber designer bags, for instance. Known for the bling factor, our luxury brand applies thousands of crystals and jewels to each couture creation so that you can enjoy a showstopping bag that will be the envy of everyone you know.
2. Enhanced durability
Handbags from top designers don’t come cheap, so you want to make sure that they are going to go the distance. In terms of cost-per-wear, designer purses and handbags can work out to be more cost-effective than fast fashion brands as they are designed to last.
In fact, if you invest in a classic handbag such as the Rose Romance Clutch or the Slim Slide Silver Clutch, you can expect these superior creations to last a lifetime. You may even be able to pass them down from one generation to the next!
3. Innovative designs
If you are fed up with buying a brand new handbag only to see several other fashionistas sporting the same look, you are the perfect candidate for a designer handbag.
Not only can you find some truly creative designs, but you can even create bespoke bags so that they are guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind. We love the Bespoke Baseball Clutch that can be customized with three characters or the trademark Judith Leiber signature.
Alternatively, if you are more of a music fan, then the Slim Slide Bespoke Party Mix Clutch is just what you need to get the party started.
4. Great resale value
Although you probably won’t want to part with your beautiful new bag or designer clutch, if you do need to re-sell a bag, either to make room for a new one or for worth, designer handbags have an excellent resale value. In fact, they are currently outperforming rare whiskeys when it comes to the most profitable luxury investment!
Whether you choose to list your handbags on eBay or a specialist consignment store such as TheRealReal, the more exclusive the piece, the more money you are likely to make.
Plus, don’t think that it is just the classic styles that sell well. You may be surprised at just how fast fashionistas snap up quirky designs such as the French Fries and Hot Clutch and The Big Apple purse.
Any creative director worth their salt will tell you that a high-quality designer handbag is one of the most versatile fashion items you will ever own.
It doesn’t matter if you are heading to the office, hitting the shops with the girls, or going out for a romantic meal with your beau; the right high end fashion handbag will always make you look polished.
If you are worried that a more eccentric design will be less flexible, you can find lots of classic styles that will never go out of fashion. For example, the Enchanted Clutch, which is available in black, silver, and champagne, is both stylish and sophisticated and will add a touch of class to any outfit.
6. The feel-good factor
When looking for a new handbag, most women let their heart lead their decision rather than their head, and what is wrong with that? While you don’t want to be wasting your money on a poor investment, why shouldn’t you get maximum pleasure from the items you choose to spend your money on?
Whether you want a designer bag that demands to be seen like the Carousel Merry Go Round, a purse that looks good enough to eat such as the Cherry On Top Ice Cream Scoops, or a quirky little number like the Punk Duck, there is the perfect designer handbag out there for everyone.
7. Superior quality
There is a reason why luxury brands cost more than non-designer ones, and it isn’t just because of their name. Designer brands care about their reputation and their heritage, and this is reflected in their products.
Not only do they use the highest quality materials, but they also put in the time and effort during the manufacturing process to create superior goods. Something that is apparent when you choose to invest in a designer accessory.
Plus, don’t forget that designer handbags also deliver a level of exclusivity that you just don’t get when shopping at a non-designer store.
Whether you are considering looking for a new purse, an evening clutch, or daytime handbag that will see you through every season, high end handbags cater to all styles and needs.
While most people have a favorite designer or two, it is always a good idea to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new.
The Judith Leiber couture handbags are synonymous with style, sophistication, and elegance, not to mention the fact that this luxury brand offers so much choice for the discerning shopper.
So, why not treat yourself this year and purchase one of these high end bags to show the world just how fabulous you really are!
