Saddlebags have been around for a long time. Since the early 2000s in fact. The resurgence of the saddlebag, by House Dior, is one of the main reasons we can’t leave 2K fashion alone. Luckily for you, we have listed some of the best saddlebags on the market right now, for you. Keep reading to spice up your bag closet!
Christian Dior – Black Grained Calfskin Saddle Bag £2800
There is no possible way we couldn’t put a Dior saddle bag on this list. There are many options to choose from, however, a bag that is not emblazoned with logos is a nice change. The Dior saddlebag is a statement on its own. If you want to spice it up, just like the oxblood version above, go for a change in solid colour.
Charles & Keith – Gabine Saddle Bag – £79
Founded in 1996, Charles & Keith is a new brand that has made its way onto our radar. Its affordable pricing and sleek design make this saddle bag a winner! These saddlebags are made out of faux leather, so perfect for vegans who hate compromising on style!
Tommy Hilfiger – Monogram Croc-effect Satchel £160
If you know anything about the ‘All American style’, you know a thing or two about Tommy Hilfiger. This saddlebag is new in the collection for the Tommy brand. The colours are perfect for summer and it fits perfectly under the arm. As a premium brand, the price is competitive enough to warrant a purchase.
Versace – La Medusa Medium Hobo Bag £1430
The La Medusa bag collection dropped a few weeks ago for the Versace brand. This version of the saddlebag is very minimalist. Even for Donatella. The only marking which will make the viewer aware is the medusa head embossed in gold detail. When going for a saddlebag, it’s always best to go for the full or medium size. That way you never have to worry about rationing essentials, for the sake of aesthetics.
Prada – Alabaster Cleo Brushed Leather Bag – £1700
This luxury saddle bag by Prada is a great addition to your closet. The name Prada may be known, but the brand has sunk into the background, as far as the general public is concerned. That is why this bag is the perfect saddlebag. It is sleek enough to keep clean, and small enough to coerce you to travel with essentials only.
Kate Spade – Smile Small Bag £195
Another price-competitive brand has made our list for saddlebags, available to you right now. That brand is Kate Spade, New York. If you’re looking to make the jump from the high street, to shopping for more quality brands, Kate Spade is for you. Most of us use our phones, for more than just making calls. This bag fits XS Max size iPhones, so no need to compromise pockets or your hands. Stick it in your new Kate Spade bag.
& Other Stories – Structured Leather Saddle Bag £85
& Other Stories is one of those brands, that has niche fans. It is owned by the HM Group, which was created in 2010 by a group of creatives. This bag is made from leather, so will endure all the mishaps that bags do. It is perfect for under the shoulder saddle bag wear and is not emblazoned with a logo. This means it will go perfectly with any outfit, and won’t overshadow, or underwhelm your audience. The price is competitive too, meaning you won’t have to shell out too many pounds, compared to the other bags above.
