True, some bag trends tend to be transient. But, some also turn out to be classic, timeless pieces that warrant a permanent place in the closet. Let’s check out some of the most timeless pieces from this year.
Unlike fashion and accessories, bag trends can sometimes be a bit transient. But that does not mean that all bags go out of trend always. And it also doesn’t mean that all those bags already sitting in your closet need to be discarded! Some bag trends are timeless and don’t become old for years. You’ll find some truly iconic pieces from your favourite brands dating all the way back to the 1900s that are still as iconic as they were when they launched. In that spirit, we decided to take a look at some of the best pieces from this year that we believe are going to stay in trend for a long while. Take a look!

They showed the La Medusa Handbag on the runways during their Pre-Fall 2022 collection and it has remained a permanent fixture since then.
