To mark it’s 20th anniversary, luxury retail site Net-A-Porter has revealed the top designer bags that customers from Singapore have been adding to cart for the past two decades.
The list, arranged in the order of the most number of units sold, shows that the pared-back bucket bag design from New York cult brand Mansur Gavriel has the widest crowd appeal. Not surprising, another It bag that made it to the list is the now-defunct Alexa satchel by Mulberry’s then creative director Emma Hill which was launched in 2009 and became a must-have item in the mid-aughts.
If there is one takeaway as to what shoppers in this part of the world crave in their bags, it would be that practical designs and black bags will never go out of style. One just needs to look at the popularity of camera bags from the likes of Marc Jacobs’ Snapshot to Gucci’s GG Marmont Camera for proof.
For those who are curious, as of press time, the site carries more than 1,100 bag styles on the site which range from popular seasonal models such as Bottega Veneta’s The Pouch to the new Baez tote from Gabriela Hearst. But enough about that, scroll down for the list of designer bags that were popular amongst Singapore shoppers over the past twenty years
