There are so many IT bags on the market right now, and with the exception of Mansur Gavriel’s collection of drawstring bucket bags, they are all way over $1000. The current line of IT bags dangling on the arms of Fashionistas around the globe include the Chanel Boy Bag, Givenchy Antigona, Valentino Rockstud Tote, Chloe Drew, Chloe Faye, Saint Laurent Sac du Jour, Valentino Rockstud shoulder bag, Celine tote (although some will argue this bag is over), Hermes Birken, Hermes Kelly, Chanel 2.55, Chanel classic flap, and the hotter than hot Mansur Gavriel drawstring bag.
With so many IT bag styles on the market, a girl on a budget is bound to find an IT bag to call her own right? Well. . .maybe. . .
Unless you get your hands on a fabulous Mansur Gavriel drawstring bucket bag, the rest of the IT bags du jour are well over $1000. In fact, most of them are over $2000, with some reaching well over $10,000. (cough, cough, Hermes) This is bad news for a bag lover on a budget.
Thankfully, there are a few alternatives on the market with the IT bag look for less. Although many handbags directly copy the IT bags of the world, there are few which offer a covetable designer name, high quality construction, and a design twist which makes them their own.
I found three handbags out there which offer the IT bag look, high quality construction, and a designer label which is highly covetable. Although these handbags are moderately priced, not super-saver priced, the moderate pricing is worth it. The Chanel Boy, Givenchy Antigona, and Rockstud Shopping Tote, are considered classic IT bags. This means they will be on the IT list for many years to come. So, if you spend a little bit more for a bag with the same look, your look-a-like will last as long as the trend; if not longer. Love that!
