Every couple of seasons, bag shape trends shift. Remember when everyone carried hobo bags? That was a real thing that happened. Over the past couple of years, everything from ladylike top-handles to small crossbody bags have become the must-have look, and we talked earlier this week about the enduring popularity of the Celine-style flared tote. What’s next? The duffel.
The easy functionality of the classic duffel makes a lot of sense with the current trends toward streamlined accessories. The new duffel lacks fussy embellishments and is generally without external pockets, and although brands like Louis Vuitton and Alexander Wang have been ahead of the curve, more brands than ever are jumping on the bandwagon for the season to come. Below, check out some of our favorites at a variety of price points.
