A Look Back At 2020’s IT Bags
It’s not too late, if you didn’t ‘bag’ yourself one, as these beauties have made it 2021!
As the unpredictable and worldwind of a year 2020 drew to a close, fashion remained an industry that didn’t stop. We looked back over the course of the year at the bags that came to the forefront of fashion, dressing the arms of many IT girl’s street fashion looks. As we gain more hope for a less restricted and more sociable year, we predict these bags will remain top contenders for the year ahead too, and let’s face it, more places to wear them! According to trends on social media, celebrity websites and major forums, these are top 5 most wanted IT Bags of 2020.
1. Dior Book Tote 2. BV Pouch 3. Chanel 19 4. Prada Re-edition 2020 5. Gucci Jackie 1961
1. Dior Book Tote
The most sought-after Dior Book Tote shopping bag, designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri, combines casual and elegance in one piece. The highly functional size of the original is designed to carry all daily necessities and it’s durable material allows for easy washing and continuous use. With the sheer success of the original version, Dior followed suit with an array of assorted shaped pieces, adding trumpets and minis to the collection!
2. Bottega Veneta Pouch
Bottega Veneta’s Pouch Clutch that launched in 2019, remained a highly sought after piece in 2020 and it’s details even inspired other luxury brands and designers. In 2020, the brand adjusted its already popular piece by adding a chunky chain shoulder strap. The chain moved the IT bag into a powerful statement classic, and we predict the Hobo Jodie Mini will be the IT bag of 2021!
3. Chanel 19
The Chanel 19 handbag is a tribute to Ms. Chanel’s 2.55 bag created in 1955. The number 19 represents it’s creation in the year 2019. The bag grew its popularity in 2020 and we expect the piece to remain an IT bag through the course of 2021! The structure of the bag is softer and lighter than its original but its newly updated bold chain revelled in the surge of the chunky chain trend of 2020 and boosted it’s demand. The brand has incorporated new elements to the design since, to include denim, tweed, sequins and velvet.
4. Prada Re-Edition 2000
The Prada Re-Edition 2000 is a re-edition of the cult style from way back in 2000. The difference is that the brand takes a stance against reducing waste and uses nylon from regenerated plastics. Each individual Nylon mini is then decorated with Saffiano leather trim. The style is practical, popular for its easy-care advantages, and charming in its easy to wear demeanor as the pint sized piece means you can clip it under the armpit. It’s versatile nature means the bag is loved by celebrities from day and to night wear.
5. Gucci Jackie 1961
Gucci Jackie known for it’s curved half-moon shaped bag designs and iconic accessories takes modern twists on the classics. The Gucci Jackie bag, originally created in 1961 was named after Jackie Kennedy. The Jackie 1961 handbag rose to fashion again when Gucci reissued the iconic piece in 2020, with the reinterpreted looks presented by the Creative Director at the 2020 Fall/Winter Men’s Collection Fashion Show in two different sizes; mini and small.
