The next level down includes some really exciting contemporary accessory brands, from Wandler and Staud to Neous and A.P.C.—all sitting in the £200-to-£700 price point and perfect for a payday treat to yourself or a big birthday gift. But what’s really got us bag-loving folks excited over the past couple of seasons are the seriously expensive-looking styles coming out of the high street.
We’re talking supple, buttery leather styles and chic baskets that get our hearts racing almost as much as a brand-new Prada. And luckily, it’s all our favourite go-to high-street destinations that seem to have gotten the memo. COS, Arket, & Other Stories, Jigsaw and Mango have all stepped up their bag games recently to include minimalist takes on classic shapes that elevate any outfit in the same way as the most luxury designer styles—except these come in at around a tenth of the price.
So if you’ve been feeling like your wardrobe is missing a gorgeous bag of late, keep scrolling to see and shop the most expensive-looking styles on the high street right now.
