Is it just me, or does May always start to feel like summer? Maybe it’s the warmer temperatures, swimming pool weather, and clear skies? It makes me feel like summer and vacation are near!
While functional bags are popular this year, there is one handbag style from before the pandemic which is still hot on the streets; and highly sought-after. You know the style! The pouch!
Pouch handbags, as you know, are a puffy and soft, clutch-style handbag we can carry on both casual and dressy occasions. This makes it a great day-into-evening bag we can easily snuggle with under our arms. While the Bottega Veneta pouch is the biggest IT bag of the pouch world, the Mansur Gavriel version is equally sought-after. Of course, Mansur Gavriel’s version is much more affordable with the large bag being just under $600 and the small version under $500.
One thing that is different in the pouch world this year is the funky, chunky, gold chain. Designers are placing useless chunky chains on their bags this year which are not meant to be used as a strap; they are meant to drape thoughtlessly over the bag. If you like pouches, and you like chunky chains, Bottega Veneta has the pouch for you; and it’s the hottest version of the pouch IT bag around. Love it!
