Twenty twenty-one came and went in the blink of an eye, and while I’m certainly still emotionally processing that it’s coming to a close, one thing I can resolutely say is that it was a year jam-packed with some pretty epic fashion moments. So to help recap the year in shopping, I’m taking a moment to look back on the trendy designer bags that made an indelible mark on the style scene over the last 12 months.
The first half of the year may already seem like lightyears in the past, but believe it or not, 2021 was the year we saw releases like the Prada Cleo Bag and Saint Laurent Le 5 à 7 Bag. Now that it’s come to a close, we’re doing what we do best and reporting on the carryalls, clutches, and shoulder bags that stood out from all the others. Ahead, take a look at the year’s 10 most lust-worthy designer bags, all hand-selected by yours truly. And since they’re somehow all still in stock, shop them, too.
