As we contemplate the most popular designer bags of 2024, it’s important to take a moment to reflect on the styles that dominated the space mere months ago. One takeaway from the year just gone, is that oversized handbags have re-entered the chat.
Arguably, the designer handbag of 2023 was Bottega Veneta’s beloved Andiamo with its luxurious intrecciato weave. The style was seen on the arm of everyone from Jacob Elordi and Michelle Yeoh to ASAP Rocky and Hailey Bieber. But there were other bags that caught our eye too. One such release was Loewe’s Squeeze bag with its adjustable chain and everything-but-the-kitchen-sink packing potential. Over at Burberry, Daniel Lee reminded us that he is still the reigning king of accessories with his launch of shield-inspired totes and sling bags. Meanwhile, Phoebe Philo’s return tempted us to claim her exorbitantly priced (and sold out) Cabas tote as a tax deduction for work… we wish.
So what designer handbags are due to take off in 2024? Miu Miu has unveiled a tote bag that we envision hauling to work, to drinks, to the beach on the weekend, and everywhere in between. While Bottega Veneta is vying for top place again with its Gemelli bag – recently seen on Dua Lipa while hanging out with her new beau Callum Turner. As for the rest? Find our hot picks for the most popular designer handbags of 2024 below.
