Chances are that if you own an “It” bag, it comes from a high-profile brand like Chanel, Saint Laurent, Givenchy, or Chloé. After all, status and brand recognition are part of the “It” factor. However, not everyone wants to cop the same trends as everyone else. Maybe you’re craving a bag that has a strong presence, an unusual color scheme, or an avant-garde structure, but you don’t know where to look.
Influencers – those glamorous jetsetters with ample closet space and a knack for discovering the next big thing – are actually a terrific resource when it comes to discovering under-the-radar brands or off-kilter styles by established brands that would usually get passed over. From Burberry’s massive shopper bag to witty designs by emerging brands such as Senreve and Yuzefi, let this week’s crop of influencer picks guide you to a new, unconventional “It” bag.
