After Hrs lists five luxe drool-worthy bags of the season

A bag isn't just a statement piece which announces your arrival in life. It conveys a great deal of emotion, your state of mind, is an extension of your personality and of course, complements your ensemble and takes any look to another level if accessorised well. It's not for nothing that Fergie sang, "No emotional baggage, just big bags filled with Dior!"
Many of us might think it's silly to spend an exorbitant amount on an obscenely priced handbag. However, it's not just a bag, it's that OMG-epiphany inducing moment that also conveys the essence of who you are, where you come from and where you are heading to. Here are five luxe-lit beauties on our wish-list...
