I can’t be the only one who’s still processing the news of 2022 coming to the end, right? Anyway, as we’ve reached the end of 2022, I thought it would be fun to recap some of the year’s biggest it-bags. You know, the bags that have popped up way too many times on our social feeds this year? Yes, I do believe that those deserve a shout-out! And to be quite honest, I also think that we’ll continue seeing many of these bags in the New Year. Definitely let me know in the comments if you feel the same. But in the meantime, scroll through the list of the top 5 it-bags that have dominated 2022.
1. Chanel 22
Regardless of how you feel about the Chanel 22 Bag, you can’t deny the fact that it has been an enormous success. Everyone from A-list celebrities to our favorite influencers have been rocking the scandalous tote this year. And it looks like they will continue doing it in 2023, as Chanel has been featuring the 22 Bag quite a lot in its 2023 campaigns. Actually, for Spring 2023 the bag will be arriving in a super cute mini size, which I must admit, even made me reconsider my thoughts on the style.
2. Saint Laurent Icare Maxi Tote
Saint Laurent’s Icare Maxi Shopping Tote might have only been revealed in April of 2022, but it has already made it into the arms of the World’s coolest it-girls. Zoe Kravitz has one. So does Hailey Bieber and even Rose from Blackpink. Seriously, it’s impossible to scroll through one’s Instagram feed these days without noticing the YSL Icare at least once. I guess big bags are now officially back!
3. Fendi Fendigraphy
Trendy and instagrammable, the Fendi Fendigraphy Bag also makes the list of the year’s biggest it bags. Revealing the bold Fendi lettering across the bottom of the bag as soon as you slip it over your shoulder, the Fendigraphy Bag is everything an influencer could ask for and more. Fashioned in a popular hobo bag style, with half-moon shape and an adjustable shoulder strap, the Fendi Fendigraphy is a bag that won’t leave you unnoticed.
4. Miu Miu Wander Bag
Another handbag that every influencer was obsessed with in 2022 is the Miu Miu Wander. Making its debut on Miu Miu’s Spring/Summer 2022 runway, the Wander Bag is a croissant-shaped bag fashioned in Miu Miu’s signature matelassé pattern. First released in nylon, but now also available in leather, the Miu Miu Wander Bag invites us to roam, explore and discover Miu Miu from a new whole new lens. Coming in a wide array of classic and fun colors, incl. candy pink.
5. Diesel 1DR Bag
If there’s one definitive it-bag of 2022, it’s undoubtedly Diesel’s 1DR Bag. Sported by every major celebrity this summer, Kylie Jenner and Megan Thee Stallion included, the 1DR Bag features a structured, yet compact silhouette with a vintage “D” plaque on the flap. According to Diesel’s designer Glenn Martens, “The 1DR bag is direct, easy, sexy, genderless, and fun, which is ultimately exactly Diesel’s core value”. And it certainly is. Coming in two different sizes and a variety of colors, incl. metallics, the Diesel 1DR Bag is possibly the hottest bag around right now.
