It’s been a strange year to say the least but some defining fashion trends have made 2020 somewhat bearable. We’ve ditched jeans for joggers, heels no longer serve a purpose and handbags are left redundant. Even though we now spend most of our time at home, with our daily essentials laid out in front of us, this year has still resulted in some trend-worthy designer handbags that have seen all over our Instagram feeds.
From Prada to Bottega Veneta, the fashion world hasn’t stopped producing It bags that every Insta influencer has been seen toting, before the key trends filtered onto the high street and more easily accessible to us all.
Prada have had a revival, after their release of their Re-Edition Nylon 2000 and 2005 bag collection this year. The bag was first seen in the early 2000s and has been recently bought back with the likes of Kendall Jenner and Kaia Gerber styling the handbags as well as many influencers across the globe, establishing it as the it bag of the moment.
Want the Prada bag for less? Of course you do. Our favourite high street stores are offering their take on the designer bag. Take this lightweight shoulder bag made with recycled polyester making it sustainable. It has a big main compartment and it fits perfectly on ur shoulder or small enough to hold by the handle.

2020 has brought a new era for Italian luxury fashion house, Bottega Veneta who have designed some hugely popular bags this year. From their pouch to their thick gold chain cassette bag, we have seen them featured on social media as well in glossy magazines.
Many independent brands have taken inspiration from the success of this handbag silhouette by creating their own versions, Instagram brand So Montro London, has been featured on influencers such as Cinzia Baylis Zullo (as shown below).
