Welcome to our list of The Most Popular Designer Bags In The World!
Here I’ll show you which were the most popular designer bags in the last three years considering sales and google searches. These are some of the most classic and iconic bags in the world, they will always be popular!
So, without further ado here are The Most Popular Designer Bags In The World:
1. Hermès Birkin Bag
The Birkin bag is the most famous and popular bag in the world, and for sure one of the most classic. The Birkin was designed in 1983 when Hermès creative director Jean-Louis Dumas set next to the actress Jane Birkin on a flight. She was wearing a straw tote and explained that most leather bags were too structured for her taste. So Dumas designed the bag on that flight on the back of a napkin. Today the Birkin is an icon and is the kind of bag that will last you your whole life.
The price of a Birkin when buying directly from an Hermès store varies depending on size, leather, hardware and color, starting at $10,075. On the resale market it can easily sell for double the original price!
2. Louis Vuitton Neverfull
Introduced in 2007 and thought to be created to compete with Goyard’s St. Louis Tote, the Neverfull is made of coated canvas and is an icon of the brand. While it’s not widely publicized, the GM size of the Neverfull is able to hold up to 200 pounds of weight despite the appearance of its delicate handles. This bag is an amazing companion to take to the beach, to the airport or even to work. In 2013, Louis Vuitton updated their signature tote to include a detachable accessories pouch, and they began introducing additional interior lining colors with an updated print, and a full leather version. When Louis Vuitton launched the OnTheGo tote it appeared that the Neverfull would be left behind, but so far, the Neverfull has truly proven to be a mainstay of the house.
As of last month you can only buy the Neverfull if you join a waitlist that is reported to be two to three months long, the goal is to increase demand and decrease supply for this iconic style.
3. Gucci Marmont Bag
With a classic flap style, the Marmont is a Gucci icon. Not long into his tenure as Gucci’s creative director, Michele gave us the Marmont bags with a chain-strap crossbody as the signature style. They debuted on the fall 2016 runways, capturing everything Michele intended to bottle up and sell in bag form: the untethered bohemian spirit of the ’70s and the glamour of the Chateau Marmont, the hotel representing the old Hollywood glamour. On the bag, Michele introduced his flipped Gucci logo, adorning a semi-puffed chevron-style quilted pattern.
This bag was extremely popular a few years ago, and apparently it is still going strong!
4. Gucci Dionysus Bag
This is one of the most popular Gucci bags ever. The crossbody purse has a double-flap design made of Gucci’s iconic coated canvas, and the U-shaped hardware used to close it dates back to the brand’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear line. Dionysus is the god of harvest, wine, and partying, so it makes sense that the bag bearing his name has a more-is-more aesthetic. The bag’s tiger closure was also influenced by mythology; it is said that Dionysus crossed the Tigris River on a tiger that Zeus sent to him. The sliding chain strap can be worn multiple ways. You can double it for shoulder carry or lengthen for crossbody wear.
This is a classic Gucci bag that was super popular in the 2010’s, but it is still iconic.
5. Fendi Baguette Bag
It was 1997, when minimalism was all the rage, that Fendi launched the first It Bag in history, the Fendi Baguette. The bag was anything but minimalist, but because of its iconic style and pop culture it became one of the most important bags in fashion history. The bag was designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi. It was intended to be worn under the arm in the very same way French people are usually seen carrying their baguettes. The bag was a breakout success. More than 100,000 bags were sold in the first year alone, and its appearance in Sex and The City solidified it’s place as the ultimate It Bag.
Today, 26 years after its debut, the Fendi Baguette, remains a stylish it bag that is iconic of the brand. It is one of the most classic designer shoulder bags!
6. Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag
The Louis Vuitton Speedy was first introduced in the 1930s but remains one of the most recognizable and popular styles of all Louis Vuitton bags. The LV Speedy purse was designed in response to advances in public transportation and the new need for a compact lightweight bag that was also large enough to hold your daily necessities. The shape is a mini version of the Louis Vuitton Keepall. This Louis Vuitton bag was made popular in the 1960s when Audrey Hepburn was seen carrying the Speedy multiple times. People say the mini size was designed especially for her. The original Louis Vuitton Speedy bag was designed without a strap, but in 2011 Louis Vuitton released the Speedy Bandoulière with an adjustable shoulder strap that can be removed. Making the bag a lot more practical.
Until this day the Speedy remains one of the most collectible Louis Vuitton bags, it will always be chic.
7. Dior Book Tote
The Book Tote was launched in 2018 and today is a favorite of Dior clients. It is one of the best designer tote bags ever! It’s not difficult to see why Dior’s Book Tote remains so popular – the style, which has fast become a staple of the house, is the perfect way to elevate any daytime ensemble. The Dior Book Tote is distinguished by its seamless combination of sophistication and relaxed style. The Maria Grazia Chiuri creation has been reimagined in an array of silhouettes and styles, each one as elegant as the last. The tote exemplifies the House’s signature savoir-faire and may be carried by hand or worn over the shoulder. This is the most practical Dior bag!
And if you are tired of the classic Dior print, each seasonal collection comes with new designs for you to choose from.
8. Chanel Classic Flap
The Chanel handbag that would ultimately become synonymous with the brand was not created until 1983. The Chanel Classic Double Flap was first introduced when Karl Lagerfeld became creative director and decided to reinterpret Chanel’s iconic 2.55 Flap Bag. From his artistic vision came two new features – a leather woven chain and Double C turn-lock closure. Lagerfeld’s Classic Double Flap was a breakout success.
Almost forty years later, and out of all the Chanel handbags on the market! The Classic Double Flap remains one of the most sought-after pieces ever crafted.
9. Louis Vuitton Alma
One of the most classic top-handles ever, the Alma is one of the most popular designer bags in the world! Rumor goes that the Alma was originally made for Coco Chanel in 1925 as a custom order. Its rounded shape and two top handles are inspired by Art Deco. It is as iconic today as it was 100 years ago! In 1934 Coco gave permission for Louis Vuitton to sell the bag to the public and history was made. Its unmistakable shape makes this compact bag a timeless classic. There are multiple colors and materials to choose from, as well as sizes. It also comes with a detachable strap so you can wear this bag as a crossbody or top handle. There is an Alma bag for every taste.
The Alma bag was the only non-Chanel bag that Coco Chanel ever carried. If it was good enough for Chanel it is good enough for me!
10. Dior Saddle Bag
The Saddle Bag was first created in 1999 at the peak of John Galliano’s Dior tenure. Its initial appearance toed the line between what was considered high fashion and, for lack of a better word, ugly. The bag is intended to be worn short trapped and tight against the arm like a saddle, hence the name. After the enormous success of the bag in the 2000’s, it was discontinued in the 2010’s. In 2018 Maria Grazia Chiurri relaunched this bag. It has since become a part of the classic styles of the brand! The Dior Saddle bag takes its cues from the equestrian world. The inspiration can be seen in the graphic design with the now iconic asymmetrical flap.
One of the most classic shoulder bags ever, the Saddle is an icon!
