Bag Check: Same Classics, Fresh Revamps

If the wheel ain’t broken, why fix it? That seems to be the general consensus amongst these fashion houses. For the SS20 season, they’ve taken bag designs that have proven to be retail hits with shoppers and revamped it with updated ideas and styles.

From a Loewe bag featuring an intriguing weave pattern to everybody’s favourite Bottega Veneta clutch getting some spanking new metalwork, these are some of the revamped bags that have us seeing hearts.

01 | The Bandoulière in leather, from Louis Vuitton

The iconic monogram gets a cool new look with a magnified scale. Done in white and set against radiant tones of marine blue, it’s the perfect sac to evoke the joys of summertime.

02 | The Baguette in leather, from Fendi

Everyone’s favourite shoulder sling returns this season with a groovy new pattern. Vivid blooms in cyan and pink splash across a tangerine background, and the cotton fringing add a sense of bohemian spirit to the bag.

03 | The 1955 Horsebit in leather, from Gucci

While the 1955 Horsebit is a classic in every way – from its shape right to its hardware – this rendition in contrasting navy and red polka dots gives us that certain quirk which we have now come to associate with Gucci. Plus, the structured “Dome” shape is a new addition to the Horsebit family.

04 | The Lady Dior in leather, from Dior

If Princess Diana were alive today, we’d imagine she’d be seen in Dior’s updated Lady Dior bags. It still bears the recognisable hallmarks of the original design, but this year’s update comes in the use of matte finishes throughout the bag’s build. Modern, subtle and just as covetable.

05 | The Pouch in leather, from Bottega Veneta

This bestselling design from Bottega Veneta needs no help in flying off store shelves, but that’s not stopping creative director Daniel Lee. For SS20, he’s attached a chunky metal chain to the iconic clutch, and already this iteration has proven to be a huge hit with Instagram influencers everywhere. You’ll have to move fast if you want one.

06 | The Vanity Case in leather, from Chanel

Everyone’s favourite box clutch gets a chic update in navy, whilst retaining the supple leather that you already love. On top of being a classic colour, navy gives you a colour option that isn’t as limited and harsh as black, so you’re able to pair this with your bright summer outfits without worrying about any potential mismatch.

The knuckle-duster handle that fronts Alexander McQueen’s Jewelled Satchel is so iconic that it can be recognised from a mile away. Equal parts elegant and rebellious, this season’s rendition comes in a miniature size, and is covered in little ball studs.
