Here’s the truth: many times I write about bag designers that are my personal favorites. Just because we have our favorites doesn’t mean we don’t cover more brands on PurseBlog, but while many of my personal favorite brands align with majority of yours, there are times I’m neglecting other designers. I read a couple comments on one of our posts recently asking us to cover more variety of brands, so while I can’t tell you that you will see me changing the brands and bags I’m drawn to, I’ll do my best to include more brands for you to check out!
That’s where this post comes in – this is all about the best black bags from designers I don’t typically cover. A black bag is of course a handbag wardrobe staple and if you’re looking to add a classic black bag to your collection and don’t want one of the usual suspects, here are some great options for you.
M2Malletier Fabricca Leather Clutch
M2Malletier is one of my favorite brands of the moment and if you’re looking for a sleek clutch, this is it.
BOYY Bobby Large Buckled Leather Tote
Boyy bags are one of the hottest bags of the moment and this bag has been spotted all over my Instagram and beyond. The price isn’t as high as premiere designer brands and the design stands out.
Stella McCartney The Falabella Box Mini Faux Leather Shoulder Bag
Most Stella McCartney bags are not known for their structure, but the brand recently introduced box bags and I really like the look.
Sacai Horseshoe Leather Shoulder Bag
I don’t know much about this brand, but this bag is pretty cool. Fringe isn’t everyone’s favorite, but I really dig it on the shoulder strap and when you see the bag on the model it shows just how good it looks on.
J.W. Anderson Pierce Shoulder Bag
J.W. Anderson isn’t new to the scene and his pierce shoulder bag has quickly shot up to become one of fashion’s favorite new bags. I dig it, do you?
Versace Palazzo Empire Shoulder Bag
Versace is a long standing brand but not one that I cover as often as others. I really like the Palazzo bag and think it’s a great combo of high and low with the structured shape and canvas shoulder strap (there is an optional leather shoulder strap as well).
Alaïa Eyelet-Embellished Glossed-Leather Shoulder Bag
While there are many beautiful cutout bags Alaïa offers, I’m digging this edgy option from the brand. The bag is really small, but the shoulder strap is pretty cool.
NO. 21 Knot Satin Shoulder Bag
Satin bags are tricky, but black satin is the easiest. This knot detail adds a great dimension and this brand is not one I know much of – but the bag is neat!
Truss Plaid Large Woven Raffia-Effect Tote
I’m into this tote for spring and summer and black and white is always in style.
Moschino Appliquéd Printed Shoulder Bag
This compact shoulder bag is quirky as we’ve come to expect from Moschino featuring the house’s signature teddy bear on the front.
Dolce and Gabbana Sicily Raffia-Trimmed Lizard-Effect Leather Tote
Dolce & Gabbana is on my radar, yet I don’t cover the often. However, this bag caught my attention and I really love it for Miami and beyond.
Elizabeth and James Finley Studded Shoulder Bag
With festival season upon us, this is the perfect little bag to add to your wardrobe.
Loeffler Randall Suede-Trimmed Leather Shoulder Bag
Guys, I LOVE THIS BAG. I didn’t think I’d love it like I do, but I’m totally into this. Plus, I feel like Millie would love to play with the funky colorful pompoms.
Alexander McQueen Heroine Mini embellished Bag
The Heroine is a big bag for Alexander McQueen and this version puts shimmering Swarovski crystals and lustrous faux pearls depicting insects in the spotlight.
Manu Atelier Pristine Micro Leather Shoulder Bag
This is a new brand on Net-A-Porter and there are five color options, including black.
Eugenia Kim Carlotta Sequin-Embellished Woven Straw Tote
Eugenia Kim makes the most fun headwear and her foray into bags fits perfectly with the brand’s aesthetic.
Tom Ford T Clasp Shoulder Bag
Tom Ford showcases many very structured bags, and while this bag has structure, it also is a bit more casual with the softer textured leather.
Marni Trunk Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag
Marni makes beautiful bags and I sometimes forget to check them out. I love this bag – love the green color paired with the black.
Kara Small Textured-Leather Backpack
Kara is a brand we’ve talked about, but it’s still under the radar as well. The bags are simple and well-made without losing their style. It’s a win all around.
Nannacay Baby Roge Pompom-Embellished Woven Raffia Tote
While this bag isn’t mostly black, the pompoms accent is black. There’s a big trend with raffia bags and this bag is pretty cool if you ask me.
