Discreet Designer Purses

Do you love discreet designer purses without flashy logos? If so, this article talks about gorgeous luxury handbags that are both underrated and understated. If you love to wear one-of-a-kind finely crafted items, keep reading to find out which of these bags is best for your needs.


1. Fendi Peekaboo

The Fendi Peekaboo is a full leather top-handle satchel with no visible logos. Available in several sizes, you can use this purse for either work or play.

Best of all, this underrated designer purse is not all over the fashion scene. It only has a lowkey following of women, but the stunning Fendi Peekaboo deserves more attention.

Nonetheless, this beautiful purse is perfect for any occasion. Go with the all-black Peekaboo to match any outfit, or if you're feeling slightly adventurous, pick a Peekaboo with a different color handle than the rest of the bag.


2. Fendi By The Way

The Fendi By The Way bag is one of the most underrated purses in the house of Fendi. Boston bags are timeless stables in any wardrobe because they are so classic. With their signature rectangular shape, these bags are practical and pleasing to the eye.

Not a lot of women know about this bag. However, the By The Way bag is perfect for those that want to wear something different from everyone else.

This purse comes in two different sizes. Although some of these bags are available in the logo canvas, most are crafted with fine leather without any visible Fendi branding, making it both underrated and understated.

It's perfect for women with a refined taste in clothing and accessories.


3. Louis Vuitton Milla

Have you always wanted a leather handbag from Louis Vuitton? Most purses from this iconic fashion house are rather loud with their signature monogram logo.

However, the Louis Vuitton Milla is a very understated full leather handbag that is gorgeous. The leather is exceptional quality, and the purse will last you many years. Louis Vuitton released this bag in two sizes and a dozen different colors.

Best of all, you can purchase this bag from luxury consignment stores for a significant discount compared to the retail price. Even if you choose to buy retail, you will find the perfect one!


4. Delvaux The Brilliant

The luxury brand Delvaux is an old underrated fashion house specializing in handmade purses.

The Brilliant is their signature bag that is crafted to last for many years. The classic shape is perfect for work and all other important formal occasions.


5. Acne Studios Musubi

Do you want an underrated purse both for work and play? Look no further than the Acne Studios Musubi.

Available in two different sizes and lots of colors, the Musubi is a carefree leather bag that is both gorgeous and practical.

Not as well known as some of the more popular luxury brands, Acne Studios is a contemporary high-end brand from Sweden. As a result, the Musubi is not as expensive as many other purses from well-known brands. The Musubi bag is underrated and understated, but this gorgeous purse is definitely arm candy.


6. Hermès Roulis

Hermès is the top luxury brand out of all the Haute fashion houses. Aside from the legendary Hermès Birkin bag, the Hermès Roulis crossbody purse is a well-crafted underrated bag. Since its debut in 2011, the Hermès Roulis has been away from the fashion spotlight.

Without visible branding like the similar Constance bag, the Roulis is much more understated. However, it is still crafted with the finest leather, just like other Hermès bags. If you are a woman that loves to use fine goods but doesn't want everyone to know what you are carrying, the Hermès Roulis is the perfect match for you.

Available in two sizes (18 and 23), the smaller one is the perfect small bag, and the larger one is more for everyday use. This gorgeous crossbody bag is available in traditional Hermès colors as well as seasonal colors.

However, do you know what's really amazing about this underrated designer bag? It has a little back pocket to fit receipts or your smartphone! The Hermès Roulis is beautiful, classy, and practical all at the same time.


7. Stella McCartney Falabella

Are you a vegan fashion lover that is against the use of animal products? You might think that fine leather handbags are out of the question for you; however, Stella McCartney is on your side. All of her purses, shoes, and accessories are made with fake leather.

The Stella McCartney Falabella bag is both an iconic and casual piece that will go with all of your outfits. Actually, the Falabella adds a little edge to your outfit with its unstructured carefree silhouette.

Additionally, Stella is known for being an animal activist and environmental advocate. She vows never to use fur, leather, or any animal products in her line.

Next time you want to buy a handbag, take a look at Stella McCartney's products and put your conscious at ease.


8. Moynat Wheel BB

Moynat is a French luxury brand that started over 170 years ago by making trunks. The brand itself is not that well-known in the fashion industry. However, this brand is known for its craftsmanship and rich history in the luxury community.

All bags from Moynat are works of art crafted by hand by experienced artisans that true fine goods lovers appreciate.

The most underrated bag from Moynat is the Wheel BB. This small round purse, available in several colors, is a statement piece. With a hard case, this handbag is both structured and extremely durable.
