2024 Best Handbag Designer

Peng Bags

It takes Meichi Peng up to 50 hours to craft one of her bespoke handbags. (For context, Hermès artisans spend about 25 hours constructing a Kelly bag.) With painstaking precision, each of her belt bags, crossbody pouches, and totes is created with top-quality leather, canvas, cowhide hair, and even lace, with color options that could fill a rainbow. The result? Timeless and creative with a jolt of jazziness. Grace Kelly would approve.
