Handbags are a woman’s best friend
We, women, love are handbags! Don’t you agree? We have so many of them and we have more on our wish list! We have small ones and big ones, cheap and expensive ones. Bags are probably the most popular woman’s accessory out there and the one that can make or break an outfit. I love all kinds of bags I really do but I do have to say not all bags are the same and not all bags get to become It bag in the fashion world.
It bags from previous seasons
Every year countless pieces come in and out of the spotlight. Major designer handbags and shoes are worn by every fashion girl out there but only a couple of them have the right to be called IT pieces. Usually, we’re talking about women’s handbags. Only some pieces become so popular you probably see them all the time on blogs and on Instagram. If you still don’t know exactly what I’m talking about let me walk you through a list of previous It bags that made big news in the fashion industry.
I think personally the first time I understood what an It bag was, was back in 2017 when suddenly everyone was carrying a half circle bamboo bag. The, now famous, Ark bag by Cult Gaia. It came in an endless number of colors and sizes. Nobody actually knows how it became such a major trend or who started it, we just know that somehow a bag under 200€ was so sold out in every major retailer.
Last year Dior made a massive comeback by relaunching the classic saddle bag from the early 2000 and just like that a new it bag was born (or more accurately reborn). Unlike the 2017 It bag, the Ark, the Dior Saddle was not a cheap one…not that it deterred those who wished to own one. We saw it in quite a few patterns and even different materials and fabrics.
Bottega Veneta: The Pouch
Do you see a pattern there? Every year we can see a least one It bag on the arms of fashion influencers during fashion weeks as well as in their everyday life. Even if you follow only a couple of fashion accounts you can probably already guess what this year’s/season’s It bag is! Of course, I’m talking about The Pouch by Bottega Veneta.
As you can already guess by the name we are talking about a clutch that can be found in two sizes. The truth is the big size is BIG. It probably holds as much stuff as a normal/small tote. Now the smaller size is quite small so the name is true to the reality. Also, it comes with crossbody strap but only for the small size.
Now about materials and colors, you do have some options. I believe the most sought after colors is the soft camel one that goes with EVERYTHING and I literally mean everything. If you find one snatch it as soon as possible, you probably won’t find it again very soon. If you want colors don’t get dishearted, just because the most popular design is camel it doesn’t mean there aren’t any other options. You can find both sizes in a variety of colors like red, green, black, cream, light blue and some more. Also, for an even more special outfit you can go for a unique metallic color. Pair it with the, also, very popular Bottega Veneta mules in matching color and you’re good to go!
New It bag on the rise?
Now let me close this article with a “prediction”. Are we seeing the new It bag of winter on our Instagram feeds and we don’t even realize it? Have you noticed? If you haven’t, don’t worry, that’s why I’m here.
Let me introduce you to the new Staud Moon bag! We did see a lot of it during fashion month on many fashion influencers and even Kendall Jenner was spotted carrying one! You can find it in two sizes and even though the big is too big for my tastes I can’t help but link it to the rises trend of really big totes I’m noticing. So what are your thoughts? Is a new affordable It bag on the rise? Only time will tell!
Till next time!
