You’ll be hard-pressed to find an accessory as in demand as a Gabriela Hearsthandbag. It’s become almost a given that every new release of the designer’s most covetable pieces creates a blink-and-you’ll-miss-out fashion frenzy.
While the desirability of Hearst’shandbags is indisputable, the style that takes the crown as most coveted is always fun to debate.
Nina was the first of Hearst’shandbag creations, kickstarting our obsession with all its smooth, curvaceous glory. There’s her more petite little sister, Demi (you’ll find her available at Lane Crawford in a global exclusive colourway of pale blue snakeskin this season.) There’s the more classic, cube-shaped Patsy and Walkwoman, and the statement-making accordion silhouette of Diana. Joni and Mitchell make us weak with their beautifully constructed three-drawer compartments – and they double as the chicest of evening clutches.
Once you’ve found your favourite, we advise adding to cart quickly and checking out — these fashion heirlooms never stay around for long.
