Meet the it-bags: You can even sit on them if you like!

Check out our top 5 bags for this season

From Kelly and Birkin to PS1 and Paddington: you can’t predict which will be the next It-Bag. Whether a bag becomes an object of desire depends on timing, stylists and fashion editors.

The Pouf

We’ve been quite amused by the bags Balenciaga suggested for spring summer – after all these bags are a perfect imitation of the 70ies pouf. If you’re not up for the schlepping part, but love its round shape we suggest you opt for the impeccable design of Ayzit Bostan who’s behind the shapely Pb 0110 bag here.

Oversized Bags

The classic tote which started out as a shopping bag, is coming back this season as the oversized bag like Balenciaga’s striped market bag and Celine’s oversized totes. QWSTIONS two-tone tote QWSTION is not only trendy but is also ethically produced. It’s made of 55% organic cotton and 45% recycled fibers.

Pop-Bags

Unexpected prints and funky extras like the miniature lipstick pockets by Valentino or catchy phrases by LOEWE instill a bit of fun in our everyday look. Clare V’s „Parigi“ Clutch in finest Italian leather adds a bit of color to life and lets us dream of faraway places.

Bucket Bags

The Bucket Bag isn’t going anywhere this year. Chanel isn’t the only one with its mini Bucket bag in pink. The American label Mansur Gavriel is also showing its spring- colored Bucket Bags with leather tanned exclusively with vegetable-based dyes which gives this bag its ethical stamp.

Backpacks

The Backpack is not a new trend but has stayed around this season because of its practicality. Versace is showing its version with buckles, straps and the trendy colors purple and green. For everyday use QWSTION Tote made of organic and recycled cotton is ideal and can be worn as a backpack or a handbag.
