Handbag brands often go out of their way to make their bags difficult to obtain, but if you’re a savvy shopper with a rare bag on your wish list, there are some choice ways to cut through the red tape and get your hands on the bag of your dreams. One particularly smart way to do that is by perusing the latest Christie’s Handbags & Accessories Online Auction, but don’t delay–the sale ends soon.

The Christie’s auction features both rare finds and timeless leather pieces from Hermès, collectible Chanel bags and travel necessities from the undisputed king of jet-setting, Louis Vuitton. These are the kinds of pieces that will be the crown jewel of any bag fiend’s closet, and they’re available for you to bid on for a limited time

Beyond the bags, though, you’ll find three very special pairs of Alexander McQueen Armadillo Boots, remade exclusively for Christie’s. The Armadillo Boot first graced the runway at Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 2010 show and have remained one of fashion’s most iconic pieces ever since. 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of these three pairs will be donated by McQueen to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, to support earthquake relief in Nepal.

Below, we’ve picked ten of our favorite bags from the auction. To bid on the full selection, head to Christies.com before the auction closes on July 23.
