Bags In The Wild

The Best Bags We Spotted On the Upper East Side In July

Battle of the Bottegas!

Summer is coming and going faster than we’d like to imagine, but before we move on to covering fall street style, we’ve got a few more warm-weather installments of Bags in the Wild in store! This time, we’re taking it back up to Gossip Girl territory; that’s right, we spent a few sweltering hot days in late July to scope out what Upper East Siders had to offer.

The UES continues to surprise us with its variety. While we’ve got a little bit of the usuals (Hermès, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel), uptowners also like to dabble a little bit in the It-bags of the season. With this installment of BITW, we’ve got a battle of the Bottega’s — the Jodie is up against one of Bottega Veneta’s newest versions of its beloved Cassette Bag; which one are you favoring? Check out the bag battle below and see more of what we snapped on the streets below!

Mini Chanels, Rare Louis Vuitton and It-Bags Galore!

I get nauseous thinking about all of the disgusting things on sidewalks when ppl put their bags down on them.

Omg as a NYer I wouldn’t put a plastic bag on the street, let alone my LV. That hurts my soul!

Agreed. Bags on sidewalks are disgusting. She’s gonna pick up that handle that’s on the ground. 🤢

I know this is about the bags but I LOVE the white jumpsuit. Any ideas on the brand?

I absolutely love the style and bags of the ues – my favorite neighborhood and most aligned with my personal taste (of course minus the few fugly louis Vuitton bags monogram – was goyard on strike? Hello)
