The Luxury List is a monthly column on all things luxury, exploring cult items from heritage brands, tapping the foremost experts in the fashion space, and doing deep dives into the investment pieces that are worth it.
Conversations about designer handbags typically revolve around one specific phrase “It bags.” That saying has, however, recently been replaced with “quiet-luxury bags” that combine ease, subtlety, and quality craftsmanship without prominent logos. Such discussions are unfolding everywhere, from our editor Slack channels to TikTok to The Wall Street Journal. But this isn’t to say these bags are completely unidentifiable despite a lack of branding. Rather, they have details such as signature clasps and unique silhouettes that only astute fashion observers would recognize.
Though there are a number of cult bags that fall into the camp of quiet luxury, Savette is a noteworthy newcomer. According to Net-a-Porter Market Director Libby Page, sleek silhouettes from Savette resonate with shoppers, making it one of the only brands to successfully break into the luxury-bag market across the retailer in a long time. This signals a rise in the quiet-luxury category overall, as the label joins the leagues of investment brands such as Hermès, Khaite, Celine, and Prada that are as quiet as they are cool. Here, see the low-key luxury bags primed to be in your closet for many years ahead.
