Ben’s Bag Edit: 7 Designer bags to carry this Raya

Welcome back to another edition of Ben’s Bag Edit! This time, BURO’s Fashion Writer will guide you through the bags you need to score for the upcoming Raya celebrations. Whether you’re aiming for a classic aesthetic or something more modern, rest assured, there’s a right bag that can effortlessly tie your ensemble together. From the cherry red Gucci Jackie to the soft blue Celine Triomphe, here are seven bags you need to elevate your Raya style game! 


Celine Classique Triomphe 

“While I typically gravitate towards black in both my outfits and accessories, the soft blue hue of the Celine Triomphe immediately captured my interest. You can’t deny how versatile it is, as it can complement a diverse range of colours. It looks striking when paired with darker shades, but it also harmonises beautifully with pastel shades or creamy tones. On top of having enough storage space to keep all your belongings, this bag also comes with an adjustable strap that allows you to wear it crossbody.” 



Chanel Mini Flap bag

“If you’re looking to avoid lugging around a large bag, the Mini flap bag by Chanel should be your go-to choice. Despite its petite size, it’s cleverly designed to carry essentials like a cardholder, lipstick and keys. Plus, those lustrous pearls? They add an irresistible charm that’s hard to resist.”



Gucci Jackie

“I’ve been closely following Sabato de Sarno’s journey with Gucci since his debut show, and I must say, I’m charmed with the new emblematic red that adorns both the ready-to-wear pieces and accessories, including the iconic Jackie bag. This bag is destined to be a showstopper at every open house with its horseshoe-shaped silhouette and signature piston closure that naturally draws attention from afar. And let’s not forget about versatility—having an additional strap is definitely a major bonus point.”



Louis Vuitton Side Trunk PM 

“The Side Trunk PM by Louis Vuitton stands as a contemporary classic that adds a dash of modern flair to your Raya outfits. This bag caught my eye with its structured shape and gold-coloured corners, which immediately reminded me of the House’s vintage trunks. While it exudes simplicity, I believe it holds a unique appeal for those who appreciate minimalism with a subtle twist.”



Dior Backpack 

Dior just proves that backpacks can indeed be stylish! I’m particularly fond of the Maxicannage calfskin leather, which blends elegantly with the iconic CD signature. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, this backpack stands out for its practicality as the bucket-shaped design offers a generous interior space.”



Delvaux Léonce 

“If you’ve been following this series from the start, you’re likely familiar with Delvaux, and I’m here to introduce you to another standout piece from the Belgian brand—the Léonce. Crafted from exquisite deep-grained Opera calf leather, this bag is designed to withstand the test of time, making it both practical and suitable for everyday use. Another reason I like this bag is the sleek design that allows it to nestle comfortably under your arm. At the same time, it also comes with an adjustable leather strap, offering flexibility in how you carry it.”



Longchamp Box-Trot 

“The Box-Trot crossbody bag from Longchamp has long been on my wish list and, it’s no wonder why. While it’s stunning in any hue, this rich brown shade stands out the most and can easily add an elegant touch to your Raya outfits. I also like how it is roomy and it sports a magnetic button clasp that ensures the safety of the insides.
