The top three designs with the best resale value are the Chanel Classic Flap, Hermes Birkin and Louis Vuitton Neverfull. While every brand releases different designs every season, it is best to consider which one will be a worthy long term investment.
Here are our best designer bags to invest in for 2019.
1. Chanel Classic Flap
Now is the time to invest on the Chanel Classic Flap. By November, the flaps will be increasing its prices again, going up to almost 5%. The medium size will be retailing for $5,600, which used to be $5,300.
2. Chanel Boy
Another Chanel classic design, the Boy, is also a great investment. Prices for the Boy will also be increasing this November. From $4,700, the new price for Old Medium will be $4,900.
The Gabrielle was released for Spring/Summer 2017 and has already been included in the brand's most popular designs. The bag is made available in different materials like aged calfskin, tweed and python. The medium size in calfskin retails for $4,500.
4. Louis Vuitton Neverfull
The Neverfull is Louis Vuitton's best bag to invest in as its a versatile every day bag but also will be a classic staple for years to come. Invest in limited materials and color ways that are season specific. The bag is available in three sizes, PM, MM and GM and comes in Monogram Canvas, Damier Ebene, Damier Azur and Epi. Price starts at $1,240 for the PM size.
5. Celine Luggage
Phoebe Philo era Celine pieces have gone up on resale value, following Hedi Slimane's debut.
No doubt, the most popular Celine bag is the Luggage, which comes in three sizes, Nano, Micro and Mini. The Mini Luggage is priced at $3,100 for Drummed Calfskin.
6. Hermes Birkin
With its high price, no doubt the Birkin is a perfect investment. It even holds the world record for most expensive bag sold in an auction (a Himalayan Crocodile Birkin with 240 diamonds). Price starts at $10,900 for Togo leather in size 30.
7. Dior Saddle
Ever since Maria Grazia Chiuri presented this bag in the runway, the Saddle has been everywhere and it looks like it's going to stick around as a classic staple. Retails at $2,850 for the medium Oblique Canvas. Now is the time to get this bag, while prices are still reasonable.
8. Dior Lady Dior
The Lady Dior bag has remained a classic style over the years. The bag was named after the late Princess Diana, when the First Lady of France Madame Bernadette Chirac gifted it to her in 1995. The medium size in calfskin now retails for $4,100.
9. Celine Trio
Now that Hedi Slimane is the Creative Director for Celine, we don't know for sure if he will be keeping the brand's classic handbags. So better to get this one now, than be sorry later on. The Trio's casual design, make one our most favorite handbags from Celine. Priced at $1,250.
