Originally designed in 1961, the Jackie 1961 bag is emblematic of the brand’s trendsetting era—and is now available in this year’s fall-winter collection in three sizes. For lovers of the brand, the handbag is popular for its curved half-moon shape and gold hardware. gucci.com
2. Salvatore Ferragamo
