12 Best Designer Bags With Chain Straps

We have uncovered 12 of the best designer bags with chain straps from several luxury fashion houses that really stand out from the crowd.

1. Versace – Virtus Tweed Shoulder Bag

Versace - Virtus Tweed Shoulder Bag

Review

The 2.55 metallic, gold-tone handbag feels a little off the wall for Chanel, but it is undoubtedly beautiful and eye-catching. The shimmering, multi-tone goatskin used to make up the quilted body of the bag is soft, supple, and radiant to look at!

The gold-tone twist lock fastening mechanism complements the slim, double chain strap which runs through the closing flap of the back. The many slip pockets and compartments make the small interior easy to organise.

This isn’t a huge bag, but it is big enough to keep all of your essentials safe and accessible.

Dimensions:

24 x 9 x 16.5cm

3. Prada – Cahier Shoulder Bag

Prada - Leather Cahier Shoulder Bag

Review

Classic, stylish, and elegant this monochrome Cashier leather shoulder bag is imbued with all of the elegance and sensuality that has made Prada a favourite for fashion lovers across the world.

The white leather body has a slightly tapering structure that is beautiful and functional, while the black leather flap and strap act as a stunning contrast.

It’s the gold-detailing, however, on the bar that holds the fastening bar, the ‘Prada’ icon, and the chain shoulder strap which make the bag really pop.
The simple, black interior has only one patch pocket but has more than enough space to hold all of your essentials.

4. Vivienne Westwood – Archive Orb Clutch

Vivienne Westwood - Archive Orb Clutch

Review

Few designers have the same weight behind their name as Vivienne Westwood. Known for beautiful, but off-the-wall designs Westwood has been an enduring name in fashion since beginning her career in the ‘70s.
The Archive Orb clutch is both classic Westwood and a little on the subtle side. The iridescent orange leather, which makes up the body, takes on green and yellowish tones when it catches the light.

The classic, Vivienne Westwood orb taking up the majority of the front of the bag is incredibly eye-catching. This is indeed a love letter to the Westwood archive of design.

While it is designed to be a clutch bag, it has a detachable gold chain strap which perfectly fits the aesthetic while also being practical. This is a very slim bag, however, so don’t count on carrying a lot when you go out.

Dimensions:

19 x 12x 3.5cm

5. Dior – 30 Montaigne Chain Bag

Dior - 30 Montaigne Chain Bag

Review

All out glam! That’s what this Dior bag offers. The soft, supple gold leather is imprinted with microcannage to give it an interesting texture and shimmer when the light hits it. With clean, structured lines, and a slight taper from bottom to top, the 30 Montaigne bag has a classic structure and design that really pays off.

The ‘CD’ logo handing from the closing strap and the chain strap really bring it all together and give this an air of elegant glamour. This is far more of an evening bag than a day-to-day handbag.

Probably not the most spacious of the bags, Dior 30 Montaigne chain bag is big enough to bring a few essentials with you, such as phone, wallet and perhaps a cheeky lipstick and even a small purse perfume spray.

Dimensions:

25 x 16.5 x 8 cm

6. Fendi – Baguette Bag

Fendi - Baguette Bag

Review

The Fendi Baguette bag is iconic. Since first being seen under Carrie’s arm during the original run of Sex in the City, it has been a must-have for fashion lovers. 

This bright green iteration is genuinely stunning, though there are plenty of other colours to choose from, including white, pink, and blue. The textured Nappa leather is durable and soft to the touch, and it will retain its structure and colour indefinitely if you care for it. 

The classic Fendi logo above the magnetic closing mechanism adds a splash of colour and matches the gold-tone chain strap perfectly. The result is a bright and funky baguette bag that transitions from day to night well. 

Dimensions:

19 x 11.5 x 4cm

7. Bottega Veneta – The Chain Cassette

Bottega Veneta - The Chain Cassette

Review

If ‘retro’ could be summed up in a single bag, it would probably be this Chain Cassette from Bottega Venetta… which is funny because it’s not a recreation of any particular look.

The pleated leather gives a quilted effect that is a little more drastic than that which comes with the usual stitched and padded leather option. The chunky, gold-toned chain is really the cherry on the cake; like the 60s trend for colour-pop had a baby with early 2000s glam.

The result looks a lot more sophisticated than it sounds. Available in blue, red, yellow, green, and black this bag is a funky little number that will liven up a lunch or make a statement at an evening event.

Dimensions:

18 x 26 x 8cm

8. Jimmy Choo – Callie Chain Strap Clutch Bag

Jimmy Choo - Callie Chain Strap Clutch Bag

Review

The Callie Micro Clutch bag is an iconic part of the Jimmy Choo range, and it’s still pretty much the standard for party girl glam.

The soft, unstructured body, which either stays flat or folds when lifted, is made of dark silver micro paillettes which catch the light and shimmer beautifully.

Chain handles usually add some flair to a bag by standing out, but in this case, the handle merely completes and complements the look.
Whether you pair it with a metallic outfit or a plain and simple little black dress, the Callie Micro Clutch will make you feel like a star!

24 x 20 x 3.5cm

9. Givenchy – Cross3 Crossbody Bag

Givenchy - Cross3 Crossbody Bag

Review

Simple but beautiful; this is what Givenchy does well, and the Cross3 crossbody bag is a perfect example of how simplicity can be stunningly beautiful.

The vibrant, textured goatskin which makes up the body of the bag is sturdy and rigid, but inviting to the touch. Slim and compact, this bag has a slender gold-tone chain strap as well as an adjustable leather one.

This is a very dense, small bag which won’t hold too much, so you should really reserve it for events. Don’t worry, however, it will still hold your keys, cards, and cash without issue!

Dimensions:

20 x 15 x 5cm

10. Burberry – Small Tri-tone Lola Bag

Burberry - Small Tri-tone Lola Bag

Review

Though Burberry is best known for rather conservative, tweedy designs, it has recently been stepping away from this on a more regular basis, producing youthful and bright designs like this stunningly beautiful Lola bag.

This quilted leather, clutch style bag actually mimics the classic Burberry design. The stitching pattern is reminiscent of the traditional plaid, while the blue and orange leather gives it a bright and breezy feel. This bag is also available in black and pink, pale blue and camel, and orange.

Whichever you choose you are sure to feel like an It Girl when you carry this bag. The oversized logo matches the long silver-toned chain strap to bring the whole look together.

Dimensions:

23 x 6 x 13cm

11. Gucci – Dionysus Small Shoulder Bag

Gucci - Dionysus Small Shoulder Bag

Review

There’s glamorous, and then there’s Gucci. This simple, gold lamé leather clutch bag might be plain, but it is far from boring. Named for the Greek God said to have crossed the Tigris on the back of a tiger, this bag is every bit as luxurious.

The layered top flap which closes the clutch is fastened by a horseshoe shape with tiger heads. This silver-toned decoration perfectly matches the slim chain shoulder strap completing the look by spicing up an otherwise plain design.

Dionysus is a small bag, but however limited is space, it has enough room for your essentials, such as lipstick, mascara or eyeliner.

Dimensions:

25 x 13.5 x 7cm

12. Valentino – Small Metallic Rockstud Spike Bag

Valentino - Small Metallic Rockstud Spike Bag

Review

This small version of the classic Valentino Rockstud Spike bag is perfect for those who like to travel light and stay stylish no matter where they go. The high-quality, quilted leather is a lovely, metallic blue, peppered with metal studs.

The panelling of leather gives this bag a level of depth and movement that is hard to find elsewhere, Valentino has always been good at instilling personality in their pieces.

The Nappa lining has a red leather pocket that really pops, despite being unseen the public at large. In short, this is a beautiful and spunky bag which really doesn’t need the chain strap to add glamour (though it does help).

Dimensions:

20 x 11.5 x 5cm
