This Bag Is Pure Luxury, But Kendall Jenner and I Think It's Worth Investing in

As a self-confessed handbag obsessive, when I tell you there's only one bag on my wish list, you know it's going to be a special one. Charmed as I have been by the new season's offerings, my heart remains devoted to a certain oversized handbag that is neither flashy nor fresh off the runway. The bag that I am so deeply committed to is The Row's simple yet perfect Margaux Tote, and Kendall Jenner has just reignited my obsession with her chic, wearable and envy-inducing styling. Wearing her brown Margaux 17 with a simple jeans outfit, Jenner flung her grey knit over her bag in a very Olsen sisters manner for a relaxed take on luxury styling.

Having been on my radar for some time, the Margaux is earning my affections by retaining the same tempting quality as it did when it debuted. A deep, roomy handbag that's available in several sizes and rid of gimmicks, the bag instead offers sleek lines, excellent stitching and exquisite attention to detail. Crafted from supple Italian leather, the bag features three interior pockets and gold buckle detailing on the side. With prices ranging from £3980 to £5460, the Margaux is priced in line with other designer favourites such as Chanel's flap bag or a Hermès Kelly. And though this is more than a considerable amount to hand over for an accessory, The Row makes its case with a cost-per-wear angle, offering a fresh, anti-trend bag that can be worn every day without ever feeling tired or out of date.

The Row is known for its quiet-luxury designs, and the Margaux forgoes logos, instead, it bears a subtle brand name stamped on its corner. Rather than shouting about its heritage, the bag shows its status through slick design and excellent quality—an endearing signature of the brand that keeps devotees coming back for more. The adoration us such that the brands have created variations on the classic, from the East-West silhouette to the clutch version that Sabrina Dhowre Elba tucked under her arm at Wimbledon.

Ideal for the office or a weekend away, I have my eye on the Margaux 17, which is the largest of the iterations, but I've collated the very best of the Margaux in all sizes and colours below, so that you too can fall in love with the style that's right for you. Plus, there's two new shades, a deep green and refined red, that have just released.
