More of a question than a holy grail bag, but does anyone have any ideas for an evening bag that can also double as a camera bag to fit a Leica M or Canon G7X (fyi they're like small point-shoot cameras). I want to hit two birds with one stone :luv:.

Thinking about $2 000 max, so Chanels are out of the picture, but I'm open to suggestions!

I NEED this bag in my life - the branding is a little more obvious than I'd usually like but it's soooo gorgeous... and practical.

I also really like this one for a smaller evening type bag

I'm not sure exactly on dimensions of what you're looking for, but I'd check out Louis Vuitton, you can probably find something on the smaller side for under $2K in leather (as opposed to canvas, canvas you could probably get it under $1K depending on the style). They also tend to be a bit friendlier on the size front than Chanel as to what fits in the bag.

A bit off topic, but their recent collections have also been pretty edgy and sophisticated in my opinion vs. Chanel which can't seem to decide between matronly, childishly tacky, and garish colors.

I'd stick to the bag trio (LV, Chanel, Hermes) as opposed to other high end designers due to the value, quality, and ability to resell down the road.

This may be late, but Chloe drew is right up your alley at a sub 2k price. I often see the white or black at evening events.








My current personal fav is the diorama in metallic cannage. The silver one is flashy yet quiet thanks to a visible lack of logos. It comes in an array of sizes to suit any price range. (med/small/mini/baby/WOC).

À propos, I was recently getting a new work bag so went by the Bond street Fendi where the woman who helped me was extremely keen to emphasise that "logos are cool again" :hahano: I guess that makes me rather uncool as I got the logo-less X-Lite Peekabo--which btw I highly recommend for those, like me, prone to carry their entire lives in their bags, because it fits literally everything without the massive appearance of the 40 cm Birkin.

I'm genuinely, usually, a serious anti-logo kinda girl... BUT the letters literally fell off my Miu Miu bag (it was a Miu) and so I recently purchased this 2006 Prada bag - right size, right time, right price and in immaculate condition (I was walking back from Nieman disappointed)... I still usually carry it logo side in but I do love it.

Can anyone speak for the Marni Trunk Bag? Is it practical, do you think it will go off-trend soon etc. I already own the Céline Trio and 3 Chanel flaps, which are so functionally similar that I’ve been debating whether to get this bag for over 2yrs - it’s getting ridiculous.

I’ll either get the grey croc:

Or black:

I do not believe it will go off trend. Marni is elegant and elegance never goes out off trend! ;)

Debatable.

I don't think the hype around the trunk bag will last, but it is sufficiently modest to easily slip in and out of vogue in tandem with the inevitably cyclical preferences for more or less structured shapes. The croc is definitely nicer than plain black.

Would any purse connoisseurs recognize this Burberry bag? I doubt it's very well known, but I've been struggling trying to find it ever since I saw this picture a few months back563704e295d6c4f877c07d3da765ada2.jpg
