17 Must-Have Designer Bags for 2023, According to ELLE Editors

“Since 2018, Marina Raphael has pushed the boundaries of handbag design by creating functional objets d’art that incorporate fine Italian craftsmanship, eco-conscious materials, and a whole lot of bling. Raphael, a descendent of the Swarovski family, often features glittering crystal motifs on her bags, which have been spotted on the arms of celebrities like Jennifer Lopez. Her latest line is an ode to the ocean, with bucket bags and totes brought to life through red coral crystal applications and detailed embroidery. Raphael was inspired after spending time in the Maldives, where rising water temperatures have resulted in devastating coral bleaching. Part of the proceeds from her new collection will be donated towards supporting the restoration of the coral reefs in the Maldives, according to a press release.”—Rose Minutaglio, senior writer/editor
