If you know Julia Barretto, then you would know that the 25-year-old actress has been a style maven ever since her teen years! Now also a budding entrepreneur, Julia’s love for all things fashion has even translated to the Juju Club— her brand that features the trendiest Y2K-inspired accessories!
But even with Julia’s immense love for fashion, did you know that the multi-hyphenate has stopped purchasing designer pieces? In a vlog she posted back in 2020, Julia now thinks twice before making a big purchase as part of her “adulting” phase. Ever since she started running her household, the star has chosen to be more careful with her expenses and prioritizes household bills over shopping for luxury goods. Julia even admits to never having bought any designer piece of clothing and doesn’t see herself doing so anytime soon!
While the actress is the frugal queen we all strive to be, Julia does have a few designer picks that are for keeps as seen from her IG! The designer bags Julia currently owns are all versatile pieces that she can reuse over and over again, which we’re sure the actress had in mind when she chose to invest in them.
LOOK: Julia Barretto’s Neutral Designer Bag Collection
1. Prada Raffia Tote Bag
Julia has a penchant for cottagecore dressing and this Prada Raffia tote bag is the perfect piece that matches her aesthetic! This basket-shaped purse is roomy enough to fit all of her essentials while keeping with her dainty style and its beige color also allows the actress to match it with just about any outfit!
Small Raffia Tote Bag in Tan, $1650 (approximately P82,500), PRADA
2. Prada Re-Edition 2005 Re-Nylon mini bag
Julia has not one, but two Prada Re-edition nylon bags in neutral colors of black and beige! We can totally understand why the actress loved this bag enough to have it in two hues as its nylon material creates a durable purse that can stand the test of time. Not to mention that its mini size makes it a breeze to tote around on your shoulder.

3. Dior Book Tote
The Dior Book tote’s elegant design and cavernous capacity make it an easy celebrity favorite! Even Julia owns this stylish arm candy that features the French luxury brand’s iconic oblique motiff. It’s also a great piece to own if you do a lot of traveling as the actress does, who can be frequently spotted in different local destinations.
Medium Book Tote, $3,350 (approx. P175,893.43), DIOR
4. Boy Chanel Handbag
What designer collection is complete without Chanel? One of Julia’s biggest purchases was this Chanel Boy Handbag in black that can set you back around a whopping P309,750—give or take! However, a Chanel purse's brand value continues to increase each year and this exact purse of Julia’s most likely already costs more than the retail price she bought it for, making it a worthy investment!
Boy Chanel Bag in Black, $5,900 (approx. P309,750.00), CHANEL
5. Gucci GG Marmont Mini Chain Bag
For an everyday purse to carry, Julia was spotted with the Gucci GG Marmont mini chain bag in white to complete her outfit! Its micro size may not allow anyone to carry many belongings, but it is enough if you pare it down to your essentials: lipstick, tissues, cards, and maybe a few cash.

6. Givenchy Leather Mystic Bag
On rainy days, Julia prefers a functional handbag to brave the wet conditions. One of her go-to pieces, when the weather gets gloomy, is the Givenchy leather Mystic bag in this gorgeous caramel shade! Bad weather aside, we’re sure that Julia makes this purse a stylish and functional everyday companion, what with its classic color, structured shape, and spacious capacity.
