If you’re stuck on how to treat the most important woman in your life this Mother’s Day, a new season handbag is a failsafe way to spoil her.
We’re here to help narrow down your options, with a curated gift edit inspired by the distinctive style of three iconic moms.
If your mother’s style is effortless and understated
British actress Jane Birkin’s formidable fashion sense fuses ease, elegance and that elusive je ne sais quoi. Before she inspired the creation of the Hermès Birkin bag in 1981, she spent the 1960s and 1970s toting a large natural straw basket. It became the hero piece of her signature look, which included a rotation of vintage denim, white tees and flowy blouses.
If your mother’s style is bold and glamorous
Bianca Jagger was a style star of the ‘70s Studio 54 scene, a friend to Andy Warhol and a wife to a Rolling Stone. During the decade, she dressed the part in dramatic, sweeping maxis, menswear-inspired ivory suits, and shimmering minis made for dancing the night away. Aligned with her carefree, life-of-the-party spirit, Bianca travelled light – she often opted for petite clutches that embraced the glamour of the night.
If your mother’s style is fashion-forward and polished
Along with being one of the most influential icons of the 20th century, Princess Diana’s fashion choices – particularly the off-duty ones – were trailblazing for her time. Whether it was bike shorts with an oversized sweater or a more preppy blazer-and-jeans ensemble, the People’s Princess was almost never without a glossy and timeless status bag robust and roomy enough to hold all her daily essentials.
