5 Timeless Handbags for Your Christmas List

5 Timeless Handbags for Your Christmas List

With Christmas fast approaching, it's time to think about last minute presents for loved ones or maybe yourself – after all everyone could do with a treat at the end of 2020!

Whoever the recipient, choosing the perfect gift is always a challenge. Trying to find something thoughtful, but also practical, sustainable, and desirable isn’t easy - but the answer may be at hand.

No woman can have too many handbags and an elegant, chic bag in their favourite colour may be the perfect solution?  Exquisitely made in Italy or Spain, form the finest calf leather, lined in contrasting suede and adaptable to be either ultra-smart or more casual, a Lalage Beaumont bag is a good option.

If this idea has piqued your interest, here are five of our favourite styles, offering something for everyone.

1. Fonteyn

The Fonteyn range comes in three sizes: Mignon, Midi, and Large.  All are designed with the signature Fonteyn lock – easy and quick to use and with only the most discrete of logos.  Each size has a detachable shoulder strap, so that the bags may be worn in three different ways, cross-body, on the shoulder or hand-held.  This versatility is a really useful attribute and very important for parties and receptions where you might want to manage a glass and a plate and need both hands free!  Available in our beautiful croc print in lots of colours, or if you prefer a smoother leather, palmellato or alce printed calf, as well as snakeskin and python.

Also in the Fonteyn range is the Fonteyn Clutch.  Featuring the same lock.  The Clutch has an short shoulder strap that is also detachable, making it the most elegant evening or party bag, just big enough for anything you might need.

2. Odette

If you're a lover of more compartments in a bag, the gorgeously neat Odette shape has a central divider and concertina sides.  Available in both a Mini size and Large, the Odette is slightly sportier than the Fonteyn, and the Large size also works well as a business bag.  The Odette features an adjustable shoulder strap or can be handheld, and the distinctive lock with its square buttons is a beautiful feature.  Available in either ‘croc’ print or palmellato calf leather in a wide range of classic colours.

3.   Sylphide


This wonderful retro inspired, ultra-sophisticated bag features a beautiful brass framed central section with logo detail, and suede lined side pockets.  With a detachable shoulder strap for practicality, the Sylphide bag is evocative of more refined and elegant times, and that is just how you feel when carrying it!  Available in our ‘croc’ print in three classic colours: deep green, stone and black.

4. Coppelia

If you are after a stylish shoulder bag in a diminutive size, that can be dressed up or down, the Small Coppelia is a very good option,  With its detachable handle, the chain strap can be put inside the bag making it seem like a totally different style.  Two compartments help to keep everything organised – always a good idea when you are carrying a small bag!  The Coppelia Large has the additional feature of being able to double up the shoulder strap so that you can have it either long or short.

Perfect for work, weekends, or when you are dressed up – the Coppelia is suede lined and comes in the classic shades of our ‘croc’ print calf leather.

5. Carmen

The ultimate business tote bag.  For those of us who find it necessary to carry lots of things around, the Carmen is endlessly practical and at the same time contemporary and chic.

Featuring two large zip pockets, big enough for A4 folders, the large open central section can house your laptop, umbrella, makeup, shoes – and anything else you might need.  Your keys and valuables can go in the small, zipped pocket and your phone and pens have their own slots too.  Closing with magnets in the corners to create the distinctive shape, the centre section also has a magnetic flap.  The handles are just long enough to be able to wear the bag on your shoulder or elegantly over your arm.

Available in black or wine ‘croc’ print or black or taupe palmellato – your business, and particularly business travel needs are taken care of to perfection.
