Hi TPFers! I am looking for a red/burgundy bag to add some pop of color! I prefer small structured bag that comes with a shoulder/crossbody strap, either with one handle or without; minimal logo/monogram, simple/timeless design; high quality - I'm fine with delicate leather but I do want the bag holds up. Budget: around $2000
Some of the candidates are:
(pictures from websites)
Celine small classic box

Cons: limited capacity due to the division; hard to find; expensive.

Loewe small Barcelona

Cons: potential quality issue of the glazing; style might be out of date soon.

Launer Lucia

Cons: can't see the bag in person; unsure about the craftsmanship/customer service

Valextra mini iside

Cons: not sure if the craftsmanship/leather quality is worth the price; maybe doesn't hold its value; hard to find?

Chanel reissue woc

Cons: not sure if it comes in red in the near season; hard to find; already have a dior woc

If you have any other styles in mind please share with me, even it is not in red! Thank you all in advance!

Thank you! I will look it up, seems that their website doesn't have the rosso color for now. I love my vara pumps, getting a matching bag might be a good idea!

Hey! Maybe you could check out Chloe drew medium $2300 (approx)

Based on your ideas, I personally like Loewe[emoji2]
Thank you! Drew bag is definitely cute, however I have heard some complaints about Chloe bag quality...my friend just got a Faye, I will check with her how that holds up then:smile:

What about any of the Chanel mini squares or rectangles? I THOUGHT [emoji848]I saw a pop of pink on their website.
Thanks, the minis are well-made and classic, I just feel that the cc lock is a little bit too obvious on a mini.

I have a medium size Python Faye. It looks nice, however it can be a bit heavy and can't not put anything bulk in it, such as Chanel sunglass case. So depends on what you want to use it for :smile:

Of the bags you have listed, I like the Chanel WOC. However, it seems like you want a bit more room for your bag given that you are concerned about the space in the Celine Box.

Have you looked at the Louis Vuitton Lockme II BB? I own this (in black) and adore the bag. The leather is wonderful and it carries all my essentials. The LV logo is a bit much but the bag is so pretty I try to ignore it. :lol:

Thank you, Lockme II BB is a pretty and versatile bag, and definitely spacious enough for my need, however I prefer gold tone hardware to go with red rather than silver:sad: LV is always my first choice, wish they have more hardware options...
