If you are looking to buy your first designer bag or are looking for a designer black crossbody bag that is versatile and timeless, then checkout this round up.

I am sharing the best black luxury crossbody bags that are timeless and functional. So, you not only can buy a designer bag. but actually get a lot of use out of it. 

Why a Designer Black Crossbody Bag?

A crossbody bag is the most versatile style of bags you can use and style with any kind of look. But here are my top reasons why to invest in a designer crossbody bag:

  • They are versatile, so you will get a lot of use out of which will in turn be a better return of your investment.
  • They are easy to carry and wear because of the crossbody style. So you can pack it and still use it comfortably.
  • Black still goes well with everything. If you need one bag, it should be black and if you need two, black and white. 
  • They are easier to maintain compared to lighter shades.

Now, these reasons are still valid if you decide to buy a high end non designer crossbody bag. But if you are looking to invest in something timeless that you can use for years, then read on.

You can also see how you can style a crossbody bag with different outfits.

Best Designer Black Crossbody Bags

Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis

Ok, this is my most used and oldest crossbody bag and it looks still new.And it still looks like new. I bought it in 2018 for my ,one term work trip to Singapore and I stuffed a compact umbrella as well. This bag still worked. And after almost 5 years, I still looks amazing and goes well with all my outfits.

The bag has a top handle and a long crossbody bag which makes it really versatile. And it has multiple internal compartments as well as the back zipped one to keep your phone.

The logo embossed grained leather is extremely durable even in the humid climate. And it looks so expensive. This is why this bag has lasted so long and probably will last a few more years. 

The envelope design is a simple but timeless style that you can rock anytime and anywhere. I feel like if there is one bag you should buy from LV, this is it. 

Now the price for this bag has increased this year like all other brands, so if you want you can also shop vintage.

Key Features:

Size:

  • 9.8 inches Wide x 7.5 inches Height x 2.8 inches Deep

Bottega Veneta Padded Cassette Bag

This bag also comes in a non padded version, but that does not look as stylish as this one does. Moreover, this bag not only look good in black but its one bag that looks so fun and great in every shade. 

The envelope flap makes it timeless and the adjustable crossbody strap makes this bag a versatile piece. If you have extra dollar to spare, invest in this one. 

Key Features:

Size:

  • 10.2 inches Wide x 7.1 inches Height x 3.1 inches Deep

Burberry Small TB Bag

Structured bags with minimal design or detailing will always be timeless. The Burberry Small TB bag is jus that perfect style of bag that you can wear with any outfit and it will compliment it. 

The small TB bag has a longer adjustable strap that you can use as a crossbody or a shoulder bag. The black leather embossed logo in a gold hardware is a subtle perfection. The logo is a new reinvention of the brand after their new CEO joined to reimagine Burberry and make it more wearable for everyday and not just for work. 

The bag is simple but it’s versatile with lots of internal compartments and the stitching details add more luxury to the bag. I also find that the bag os rightly priced.

With the grained leather, its also really easy to care for and over time will wear well.

Key Features:

Size:

  • 8.3 inches Wide x 6.3 inches Height x 2.4 inches Deep
  • Min. shoulder strap drop: 19.3in
  • Max. shoulder strap drop: 21.3in

Gucci Blondie Camera Bag

I love the rectangular structure of the bag that makes it modern. Which means it’s not going to get outdated soon. The shape also makes this bag functional. 

You can pack on a lot of stuff and easily access it just one zip away. 

I love that there are not gold logo details because then you don’t have to worry about ruining it or polishing it in the long run. And the new blondie logo looks so chic and timeless.

Key Features:

Size:

  • 8.3 inches Wide x 6.1 inches Height x 3.1 inches Deep
  • Adjustable shoulder strap with 21.4″ drop

Loewe Small Puzzle Bag

The Loewe Small Puzzle Bag is one of the most iconic and timeless crossbody bag designs from Loewe that has been there for ages and will be there in future. 

Loewe as a brand creates timeless, minimal and classic designs that are simple yet modern. And this bag speaks for it. 

The puzzle design and stitching looks so chic and elevated. I recently bought a blue version of this bag, but honestly this is another timeless design that looks great in every shade. 

The top flap is a clever way to hide the zipper, but the boxy design looks modern and is really functional. 

The crossbody bags also come with a back zip which is smaller, so you can store money or keys. the bag comes with a top handle along with the crossbody strap which is adjustable. The strap can be detachable, so if you want to, you can use it as a top handle bag.

Key Features:

Size:

  • 9.5 inches Wide x 6 inches Height x 4 inches Deep
  • Detachable shoulder strap, 14″ drop.

Celine Medium Classic Box bag

The Celine Medium Classic Box bag has me in a hook. This is the ultimate timeless black bag with minimal hardware detail and the signature Celine silhouette. If you are looking for an old money bag, then this crossbody bag is the one.

I have already added this to my wishlist. The Celine box bag was launched in 2011 and still going very strong. So, you can say that this handbag is here to stay. The minimal design is perfect for everyday use. You can take it with you while traveling or for work, or even to special occasion.

Key Features:

Size:

  • 9 inches Wide x 7 inches Height x 3 inches Deep
  • Removable and adjustable strap with a minimum drop of 9 inches and maximum drop of 17 inches.

Giorgio Armani La Prima Bag

The Giorgio Armani La Prima Bag is new design launched last year by the brand but one of the most versatile bags. The key feature of the bag is its multi purpose handle. You can convert the handle into 3 different lengths for 3 different looks. 

While designer brands are coming up with less functional bags, we all know that, Giorgio Armani decided to create a bag that you can use from day to night and for all occasion.

The minimal design with envelope style also makes it versatile and timeless. You can use it year after year without feeling outdated. 

It will go with everything as well.

Key Features:

Size:

  • 7.8 inches Wide x 6.3 inches Height x 4.7 inches Deep

Saint Laurent Solferino Satchel

The YSL Solferino bag looks timeless and sophisticated even with the minimal design. The bag is a true crossbody bag with a minimal strap and honestly I like that.  Its really annoying when you have a super long strap that you cannot shorten the way you need.

The Solferino comes in a lot of shade, but it looks classy in black and white. Its simple boxy design makes it easy to put stuff easily without and weird corners. 

The bag has an inner small compartment along with a front slip compartment where you can put phone or card case if you want. 

This bag is small but not too small, so you can also use it as an evening bag by reducing the strap length and carrying it on your shoulder.

Key Features:

Size:

  • 9 inches Wide x 6.2 inches Height x 2.3 inches Deep
