There was once two sisters who fought over a bag. The bag in question was a Classic Medium Flap Chanel Bag in Caviar Quilted Leather with gold hardware. Their mother bought the bag during her hay days in the 90s. Now, she has decided to pass on the classic flap bag to one of her daughters. After much debating, the family is still at a loss as to who should keep the bag. But, why all the fuss? It’s because luxury bags are as much of an investment as art. This is why many collectors start at a young age in their road to luxury investments, which poses the question: How do you start a luxury bag collection? Love Luxe Bags founder, Aimee Hashim, and Mimiyuuuh show us the top 9 bags you can start your collection with in her newest YouTube video.

Aimee and Mimiyuuuh call the Givenchy Small Antigona Soft Bag, “The bag with attitude.” If the name sounds familiar, then you’ve probably seen the Antigona’s older design before.
