As far as fashion is concerned, 2017 has been one of the most interesting year ever. Several important proposals emerged in the field of women accessories, starting from bags that have really dominated the scene. According to one of the most clicked fashion and e-commerce website, Lyst, ten are the most wanted and most bought bags for millions of web users last year.
In the month following 2017 Fashion’s Weeks, that is February, there was an extraordinary increase in demand for Gucci Marmont’s bags, with a peak of 102%. After being the most sought-after item of the category in 2016, the bag designed by J.W. Anderson Pierce confirmed its success even the following year due to the use of new fabrics and sizes. One of the ‘must-have’ in Paris Fashion Week was Nile Chloè’s bag, made of leather and with a bangle, it has been very trendy since last September.
On the other hand, the most sought-after bag for Summer 2017 was Cult Gaia’s Ark, made of bamboo in its neutral version or of acrylic in its colored versions. Dionysus Gucci, inspired by the Greek god Dionysus, is a shoulder bag – with a buckle reproducing two tiger heads – that was actually all the rage last year, reporting a click every 6 seconds during Fall 2017.
Among the other unforgettable bags, there was also J’adior Dior, presented during the first fashion runaway organized by Maria Grazia Chiuri for the maison. Another great success was also represented by Arena Balenciaga’s shopper that made its appearance during men’s runaway shows for Spring/Summer 2017, followed by Elephant Loewe, the mini-bag with a shape of a small elephant, and the nabuck bag Bonsai Simon Miller. Finally, the most successful accessory by the Creative Director Virgil Abloh was the exclusive leather bag Binder-clip Off White.
