Top Handle Bags

Over the years, many varieties of top handle bags have been introduced in the fashion industry, most of which are characterized by simplicity and classical elegance. From the Haut à courroies — Hermès’s original top-handled bag, created in 1892 — to the smaller and timeless Sac à dépêches that inspired both the Kelly bag in the 1950s and the Birkin in the 1980s, the discerning shopper has had no shortage of options to choose from.


At 1stDibs, find vintage top handle bags from Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Gucci. We have different styles that include the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Alma GM handbag, Fendi Baguette purses and modern Longchamp leather handbags. You can browse our top handle bags by color, period, designer or even by measurements.


Small and mini designer top handle bags, including vintage top-handled box bags and micro clutches, offer an alternate dynamic, and usually feature sleek lines and modest features to perfectly complement your evening look. Although a traditional design, the classic top handle bag is an ideal accessory to pair with casual attire. For a personal touch or pop of color, add a keychain, a patterned scarf or a handbag chain.
