It’s almost the end of 2015, and before we greet the New Year with fresh trends that eagerly await, we look back at the eventful year with a roundup of the best ‘it’ bags to own. See our list of totes that made it to our list (and should’ve already been in your closet!) below.
The Puzzle bag left quite a mark on the brand’s achievement, and we felt it was a one of Loewe’s most successful year to date. Being Jonathan Anderson’s first few creations since taking over the brand last year, the tote breathes in a new mentality, boasting a multi-dimensional shape-shifting form featuring bold, sleek lines. Thanks to its timeless and sleek versatility, the bag functions effortlessly at both formal and casual occasions.
Fendi Peekaboo Micro
When it first emerged on the Fendi SS15 runway, this tiny version of Fendi’s notorious Peekaboo left fashion enthusiasts like us astounded; part of us knew that it was the bag to have and to hold, but part of us found it lacked practicality. But of course, our verdicts never really mattered. Soon it was held by our favourite style-mavens like Chiara Ferragni, Helena Bordon and Anna Dello Russo to name a few. Wear it on its own or attach it to a larger tote, this tiny yet powerful creation will never let your style reputation down.
Meet Faye, Chloé Drew’s sister bag that had all eyes on it ever since it was introduced earlier this year. Similar to the Drew’s craze, the cross-body bag features a 70’s aesthetic in materials of suede, leather or exotic skin, and exudes a sense of classic yet boho-chic style. With an iconic hardware and chain closure that simply gives the bag a modern twist, its no wonder the Faye has become a favourite go-to of fashion’s A-lists like Chrissy Teigan, Elena Perminova and Aimee Song.
Céline Curved Clutch
Hats off to one of Céline’s most mysterious and distinguished clutch that debuted in the warm seasons of 2015. Boasting a unique shape that is evident as its namesake, the clutch is available in calfskin or stamped croc leather, with a handle that is made luxurious with a metal buckle. While some fashion experts think that the clutch is less impressive than some of the brand’s iconic bags, most street style stars (and us!) believe otherwise. Style it with an understated LBD for an evening affair, or simply pair it with jeans and t-shirt on laidback weekends and you’ll never go wrong!
When Rihanna painted the town with her appearance in the Dior Secret Garden campaign whilst endorsing the Diorama, we can’t help but to fall in love with the, as its name suggests, dramatically edgy bag. Set with fine lines and geometrical patterns, the bag also features a distinct push-lock closure and an adjustable chain link handle. Ranging from large to micro size, this celebrity-approved bag has been caught styled on the glamourous red carpets and trendy streets.
