Iconic handbags and the iconic women who inspired them

Most women will attest that you can never have too many shoes or too many handbags. Our handbags are more than just a fashion accessory — they are the portals for all of our daily essentials. In fact, they feel more like an appendage than an accessory. Without them, we feel naked. Our love for handbags hasn’t changed much through the years, but the styles continue to evolve.

Allow us to give you a history lesson on every girl’s favourite subject — handbags. Take notes, there just may be a pop quiz!
