Elevating Everyday Elegance with Cult-Status Classics from Cosette

by Cosette on May 03, 2024

Each month, Cosette selects and showcases five cult-status bags that we know our customers will love. In our eyes, each bag is a masterpiece of luxury design, that effortlessly enhances and elevates our everyday wardrobe. For bag-devotees like us, the story and craftsmanship behind these exquisite creations is a joy to discover. With Cosette’s Summer Showcase of cult-status bags just released, we explore the visionary design of these high-fashion houses, and how they update your wardrobe with grace and ease.

The Quintet of Elegance

Fendi Baguette Midi Bag from Cosette

An icon reborn, the Fendi Baguette Midi Bag marries tradition with modernity. The Fendi Baguette Midi Bag holds a significant place in the history of luxury handbags, having earned iconic status since its debut in the late 1990s. Created by Silvia Venturini Fendi, the bag made its first appearance in the Spring/Summer 1997 collection. The original Baguette, with its compact silhouette and distinctive design, quickly became a fashion sensation, symbolising the shift from traditional, practical handbags to statement pieces that reflected personal style. The updated Midi features a rigid square shape, the same distinctive and ornate “FF” closure, and chain strap that can be worn on the shoulder or cross-body.

Jacquemus Le Bambino Long Ficiu in Light Yellow from Cosette

Jacquemus, a purveyor of playful sophistication, introduces the Le Bambino Long Ficiu in Light Yellow. Designed as part of their Spring Summer ’23 show, this ready-to-wear collection takes influences from natural beauty inspired by the Raffia palm, native to tropical African regions. Mirroring an elongated version of their classic Le Bambino bag, this piece is elevated whimsically by a leather thread shoulder strap, blending classic French elegance with a contemporary and avant-garde aesthetic — a true reflection of Simon Jacquemus vision.

Jacquemus Le Chiquito Long Cordao in Khaki from Cosette

In the hands of Jacquemus, the Le Chiquito Long Cordao in Khaki is a fusion of compact, classic design and fashion-forward detail. Part of the same SS23 Le Raphia collection, this sleek leather design is worked to a rectangular silhouette and features a gilded logo keychain and a braided straw base, in homage to the espadrille — a choice shoe for chic coastal holiday-goers.

Bottega Veneta Mini Jodie from Cosette

Crafted to embody the brand’s aesthetic while offering a contemporary update, Bottega Veneta presents the Mini Jodie in Bliss Washed. A creation of creative director Daniel Lee in 2020, the Mini Jodie stands out for the delicacy of the leather, which is worked with Bottega’s signature intrecciato weaving technique (a meticulous and intricate method of weaving leather strips) as well as a sculpted knot handle, which becomes the connecting point of an almost perfect circle. Embodying understated luxury, it is an ideal accessory for evening outfits, or, in the Bliss Washed colour, to elevate a daytime look.

Valentino Roman Stud Raffia Bucket Bag from Cosette

Valentino introduces a masterpiece with the Roman Stud Raffia Bucket Bag. Part of the brand’s Roman Stud collection, an evolution of Valentino’s iconic Rockstud line, the classic bucket bag shape is adorned with gleaming gold-toned hardware and the pyramid-shaped Roman studs, elegantly punctuating the woven raffia. This bag effortlessly merges the bohemian spirit with high fashion, offering an easy wardrobe update for those who crave a touch of eclectic charm. Since 1960, Valentino has produced exquisite luxury garments and accessories that blend tradition and innovation — the Roman Stud Raffia Bucket Bag is no different.

At Cosette, we understand the transformative power of a well-chosen handbag. Our mission is to curate a collection that not only reflects timeless elegance but also makes wardrobe updates a joyous and effortless experience.
