Oh boy, 2022 is here, and it's time to treat yourself to maybe one (or two!) of these affordable designer bags under P26,000 (US$500). Thanks to trusted commerce sites Net-A-Porter, Farfetch and Shopbop, we're about to add some of these bags into the cart, pronto!

Both Farfetch and Shopbop are giving us many reasons to smile because they're giving us 50 per cent off selected items, so we'd encourage you to get those fingers clicking. The discount will be automatically applied at checkout, with shipping to the Philippines.
