5 Iconic Designer Handbags to Invest in this Year

Iconic Luxury Bags to Invest in for 2016

Investing in a luxury handbag, or any luxury good for that matter, has a cognitive affect on the purchasing thought process for an individual. When one decides to purchase a high-cost product that is out of the “norm” for their buying behaviors, it becomes less of a subconscious decision – then say, buying the same shampoo one would frequently purchase.

Buying a luxury handbag does not mean spending a large amount of money on a well-known logo attached to a bag, buying a luxury handbag is the exchange of currency for quality. However, some designer brands – that were once “luxury” – have detoured from the process that gave them that title.

A recent article from Forbes gave their list of the 10 top designer brands in the handbag category, putting together the following labels in descending order:
