Ben’s Bag Edit: 7 Luxury bags you need to boost your style game this April

The Raya festivities may have eased up, but I’m always looking for a reason to celebrate. As BURO’s resident Fashion Writer, I’ve crafted this month’s Bag Edit, to reflect all the different occasions in one’s life, whether it’s for work or for special events. If you’re on the hunt for new additions, here are seven bags that will keep your wardrobe stylish and on point.


Louis Vuitton Low Key Hobo MM

“If you’re looking for an everyday bag, I can’t recommend the new Low Key Hobo MM bag by Louis Vuitton enough. Made from luxurious-grained calfskin with a suede lining, it has a relaxed, slouchy style and enough space to fit your laptop inside. The adjustable strap also ensures a customised fit. More importantly, I love the minimal branding—all that’s present is the elegantly engraved padlock on the strap and the subtle brand name at the bottom—making it a quiet luxury.”



Versace Medusa ’95 Tote bag

“Aside from being mesmerised by the presence of Cillian Murphy as well as Anne Hathaway’s curly locks and stunning corset dress, I couldn’t help but admire the handbag she held in the latest Versace Icons campaign. Its horizontal shape immediately caught my attention and the magnetic closure certainly added a touch of convenience to its elegance. The addition of the iconic Medusa ‘95 hardware gives it an heirloom quality that can be passed down through generations.”



Chanel Camera bag

“While there are plenty of camera bags on the market, I think Chanel’s rendition is one of the best because it closely resembles a real camera. It comes with a “flash” and “lens”, and when you open it, there’s a small mirror inside—perfect for quick touch-ups while you’re out and about. If you’re after a playful yet practical accessory, trust me, this is the one for you!” 



Fendi Peekaboo ISeeU Small

“Speaking of classic designer bags, I believe one that deserves to be on the list is the Fendi Peekaboo. Its clean and minimalistic design, coupled with subtle geometric touches, adds to its appeal. Additionally, I think the iconic twist lock on both sides and the hand-sewn tone-on-tone macro stitches contribute to its modern aesthetic. Function-wise, it offers ample space with an internal pocket and its detachable shoulder strap provides the freedom to carry it however you please.”



Alaïa Le Teckel

“I’ve had my eye on rectangular-shaped bags lately, and now feels like the perfect time to invest in one. There are some great options out there, like the Miu Miu Arcadie or the Coach Swing Zip bag, but let me introduce you to the Alaïa Le Teckel. I like this bag because it has an extra-long shoulder strap, making it effortless to carry over your shoulder. Its elongated shape is also a plus because that means you can fit more essentials inside. And here’s the kicker: it comes with a small removable mirror—a neat little touch that adds to its charm.”



Valentino Garavani Locò

“Consider this your sign to expand your bag collection with the Locò shoulder bag! I’m drawn to this Valentino piece for its striking metallic VLogo signature and the light ivory hue that pairs well with any ensemble. Another feature that I enjoy is the detachable sliding chain strap and removable handle, making it the perfect day-to-night bag.”



Prada Galleria  

“Besides the Buckle and Cleo bag, I’ve discovered another Prada gem that deserves a spot on your wish list: the Galleria bag. While the Italian label dazzled us with colourful versions last year, this time, they’ve opted for an edgy yet minimalist direction. The Galleria is now adorned with all-over mini studs and three-compartment styles, making it a wonderful match for monochrome outfits.”
