7 Best Heart-Shaped Bags for Valentine’s Day and Beyond
With Valentine’s Day coming up, we are naturally seeing a huge uptake in demand for heart-shaped bags. However, this time around it isn’t just about the V-Day. If you’ve been following Spring/Summer 2022 runways, you know that heart-shaped bags have been proclaimed as one of the biggest handbag trends of the season. The adorable silhouette has been spotted on multiple SS22 runways, from Balmain and Moschino to Chanel and Loewe. Actually, this isn’t the first time that the designers are getting struck by the Cupid’s arrow. Heart-shaped bags have consistently appeared in designer collections, whether those were specific to the Valentine’s Day, or not. That’s why there is an abundance of designer heart-shaped bags to choose from if you are looking to buy into the trend. Here are my top 7 picks.
1. Chanel Heart Bag ($3,400-$,5,100)
Without a doubt, it’s Chanel’s SS22 Heart Bag that’s stealing our hearts in 2022. Chanel initially launched heart bags in the 90’s. If you manage to find one of those on the pre-loved market, be ready to spend thousands of dollars on it. Yes, that’s how sought-after they are! So, as soon as I saw the heart bag on Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2022 runway, I knew it was going to be a huge success. Apparently, Chanel began accepting waiting list sign-ups for the bag as early as in October 2021. For your reference, the bag is expected to launch in March 2022. Contact your Chanel SA immediately if you want to get your hands on one!
2. Louis Vuitton Game On Cœur Bag (RTP: $2,100)
Similarly to Chanel, Louis Vuitton is no stranger to the heart-shaped silhouette. One of their most popular heart bags to date is the Game On Cœur – a style released as part of House’s 2021 Game On Cruise Collection. Fashioned in LV’s classic Monogram canvas, it features a bright red heart on the top left, echoing the bag’s silhouette. With a double zip closure and an adjustable crossbody strap, the Louis Vuitton Game On Cœur Bag is a versatile option for everyday and special occasion.
3. Gucci Valentine’s Day Small Heart Bag ($1,300-$1,800)
One brand that has clearly been looking forward to the Valentine’s Day this year is Gucci. Brand’s love-themed capsule collection just launched, and it includes everything from heart-shaped bags to special edition perfumes and make-up. The highlight of the collection – Gucci’s Small Heart Bag is accentuated by the word “Love” and comes in multiple versions, from a chic shoulder bag to a playful multidimensional style, perfect for romantic date nights.
4. Saint Laurent Cœur Bag ($1,150)
Named after its rounded heart-like shape, the Saint Laurent Cœur is a bag to wear all year long.
