Fun post to read with all these handbag fashion icons but totally surprised to find the ps1 on this list… ?

I initially agreed with you but when I thought about it i realized how many messenger style bags it inspired by other premier as well as contemporary designers- EVERYONE made a messenger style bag after they came out with this. I never personally liked the PS1 but then a couple years after it peaked i saw a Loeffler Randall Rider bag in fuschia haircalf and had to have it- to this day it is consistently my most complimented bag, I never wear it and fail to get comments and questions. I think Proenza Schouler started a serious trend with this one.

Interesting take because to me the PS1 is not a handbag icon at all… I find it so unappealing. But it’s all very subjective I suppose!

I love this blog! Took me down memory lane with the Proenza Schouler PS1 which I used all thru my years at university. That was a great bag for me and I still love it to this day.

What about Louis Vuitton Alma…?

LV Alma and Hermes Bolide are basically the same bag and the same age, probably just didn’t want to get into the debate over which came first or is most “iconic”.

The LV Alma was created in 1934; the Hermes Bolide was initially created in 1923 as a “zippered carryall” for large items with the bottom zippered part used for jewelry, etc. The Bolide was created, in handbag size, in 1982. Given the historic nature of both, it’s interesting that they weren’t included. Both have inspired multiple designers to create similar bags so it’s unfortunate that they were overlooked.

I agree, I think you can take out LV Luggage and put some excellent classic BV pieces.

I love my Balenciaga and my Speedy but my Alma should be on this list too and my Chanel Double Flap, all classics in my opinion.

I think your list is pretty good (not amazing but pretty good), lots of nice classic examples. My favourite is definitely that Chanel 11.12 in that material & colour! Stunning, beautiful evening bag with a little black dress. I don’t understand how Prada can get away with nylon and that price tag, that was literally when the definition of “you are paying for the label” came into existence! Plus I prefer Longchamps shapes in nylon to Prada’s shapes – BUT I do like the backpack – it’s nice… at H&M for $50.

Finally, the Gucci Jackie is definitely my favourite Gucci classic shape and all the leathers it’s in, really come out wonderful. Both CD in this list can go… in the garbage – or black hole, never to be seen again. Sorry but the Saddle bag (especially in this material/pattern) just look SO CHEAP. They made it in this beautiful puffy black leather and it looked stunning, very classy & EXPENSIVE, every other material I have seen it in, they look sooo cheap. **Shrug**
