Among the many trends that have resurfaced from the late ’90s and early ’00s, designer logo shoulder bags have arguably made one of the biggest comebacks. Lucky for us, these nostalgic must-have accessories are back at the forefront of fashion and have reignited an obsession. An added bonus, shopping original designer handbags along with their reissued counterparts on Poshmark is a breeze. Read on for our flashback faves:
You could say the Fendi Baguette is where it all started. The OG ‘It’ bag was first introduced in 1997 and quickly became a cult favorite after it was seen on the arm of fashionista Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. More than 20 years later, the classic two-tone canvas baguette, featuring the infamous Zucca ‘FF’ logo, has rightfully reclaimed its title as it has evolved and added modern elements like embossed leather, bright colors, and a variety of sizes.
In 2018, Dior traveled back in time and reissued one of their most beloved accessories, the Saddle Bag. Originally designed by John Galliano, the iconic kidney-shaped silhouette that fits perfectly snug under the arm hasn’t altered much from when it was first shown in 1999. The reissue still includes Dior’s “Diorissimo” logo print, however, the updated look now comes in various sizes, colors, and materials with an option to purchase a trendy detachable shoulder strap.
Prada’s signature nylon collection was at the top of luxury wish lists back in the early 2000s. Today, this classic Prada style has emerged from the archives with the release of the Re-Edition. This revamp of Prada classics, including the 2000 Nylon Bag and the Bandoliera Tessuto aka the 2005 Nylon Shoulder Bag, has restored designs with a modern flair. These updated designs include new colorways and come with a coin purse attached to an adjustable strap but still feature Prada’s diamond shaped logo and nylon fabric, making it an effortless accessory that’s easy to maintain.
Louis Vuitton’s renowned Monogram print has withstood the test of time and to this day remains a coveted fashion piece. The Pochette, a permanent collectors’ item, has become one of their most popular styles and has gone through many variations of designs throughout the years. Marc Jacobs, LV’s artistic director from 1997-2014, pioneered the idea of collaborating with esteemed artists like Stephen Sprouse and Takashi Murkami to create unique pieces including (the Pochette) that shoppers would treasure. This customizable handbag has many detachable elements, including a mini Pochette with a chain, a coin purse, and an adjustable strap.
