Ben’s Bag Edit: 6 Designer bags that effortlessly complement any look

The festive season may have passed, but the joy of shopping remains ever-present! There’s always room for new additions, and what truly excites me about fashion is the continuous arrivals of new bag releases, ranging from sophisticated flap bags to trendy mini backpacks—truly, the options are endless. Below, discover six bags that can speak volumes about your distinctive style and individual flair. 


Tod’s T Timeless Flap bag 

“My first glimpse of the T Timeless Flap bag came from Jane Chuck’s Instagram post, in a sleek black edition. Intrigued by its slightly puffy silhouette, I decided to explore Tod’s website for a closer look and there, I found myself instantly captivated by the light blue iteration. The T Timeless turn-lock buckle further heightened the allure, seamlessly enhanced the style. Above all, I was impressed by the three practical compartments, offering generous space for daily essentials. This bag is undoubtedly perfect for everyday wear!”



Ralph Lauren RL 888 Box Calfskin Crossbody  

“I recently visited the Ralph Lauren store at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and had the chance to check out its SS24 collection, particularly the RL 888 bag series. Among the assortments, the crossbody version caught my eye and while I’ve always favoured the top-handle style, there’s something chic about this option. Its laid-back elegance renders it a versatile choice for day-to-night wear. The compartment may not boost the same spaciousness as the top-handle counterpart, but it still has enough space to keep all your essentials.”



Chanel Small backpack  

“If you’re a fan of petite backpacks, then you’re likely well-acquainted with Chanel’s reputation for crafting some of the best ones out there, and I couldn’t agree more! The iconic quilted stitching and interlocking CC insignia unmistakenly epitomize Chanel’s renowned aesthetic. I appreciate the inclusion of the front pocket as it’s accessible. On top of that, the decision to offer this backpack in camel brown is spot-on as it effortlessly complements a myriad of styles.”



Valentino VSling  

“I’ll confess—I’m a bit of a window-shopping enthusiast. Yet this led me to stumble upon a gem a few weeks back: the VSling bag by Valentino. What drew me in was its trapezoid shape, a refreshing departure from the brand’s usual styles like the Locò or VLogo Moon line. The bold red interior was a pleasant surprise, and the extendable shoulder strap is a convenient touch for those situations when I prefer to carry it over my shoulder.”



Saint Laurent Jamie 4.3 Pochon

“I’ve only discovered the Jamie 4.3 Pochon recently, I can already see why it’s poised to become the next go-to bag for celebrities. Dubbed the ‘pouch version’ of the extra-large Jamie 4.3, this Saint Laurent bag offers sufficient room for essentials and is equipped with a magnetic closure for added security. What makes it even better is that it comes with a removable zip pouch, making it an irresistible two-in-one deal.”



Delvaux Pin Pon 

“Yes, you read that right—Delvaux has a half-moon bag like the Pin Pon. There are two things I love about this bag: the buttery soft Mozart calf leather, which is aesthetically pleasing, and the rounded silhouette with a perforated leather base. Additionally, it’s available in three gorgeous pastel shades and features an adjustable handle that allows you to set the length to your preference.”
