If you're of the opinion that designer bags should come in neutral hues to easily pair with any outfit, you'll absolutely love Ashley Sandrine Yap's collection. The 25-year-old bag aficionado has an impressive and seemingly bottomless stock of classic styles from brands such as Prada, Chanel, Dior, and Louis Vuitton, the latter of being her apparent favorite.
She clearly has a taste for timeless pieces. When she cops monogram pieces, she often goes for those in tone-on-tone black, not in busy, candied colorways. She favors elegant leather pieces with top handles and crossbody straps, which are both chic and practical. It's evident that her steadily-growing collection will outlive the trends and stay relevant for a lifetime.
Below, we've listed the exact bag's in Ashley's collection, as well as their prices and where to cop them. Take a look.
