The Polo Ralph Lauren Polo ID Bag Is Met with Praise

Don't sleep on Ralph Lauren's line of bags

There are storied American fashion houses that rarely receive the handbag praise that European counterparts do. And while the French and Italian brands do have a stronghold in the handbag realm, one of the most recognizable names in the fashion world, Ralph Lauren, recently (and quickly) made a case for its bags, namely the Polo Ralph Lauren Polo ID Bag.

Storied History

With the major movement toward quiet luxury and heritage brands, the opportunity for Ralph Lauren to shine is palpable. That feeling of nostalgia and history for a beloved brand offers a cache that others simply aren’t able to, and that very feeling brings power to the Ralph Lauren line of bags.

There are multiple families of bag lines under the Ralph Lauren name, with Polo Ralph Lauren offering a more contemporary feel and price point. The Polo ID collection is a big hit for the brand and “inspired by a sense of adventure, romance, and optimism.” How does that translate to the bag? This bag offers wearability with touches of house codes, including a slight equestrian feel.

New Variations

In fact, the Polo Id bag became a star with the social media crowd, popping up on my For You and suggested pages quite often over the last months. But this is more than a social push, this bag offers staying power with its elegance and different ways of wear. It’s a dual-compartment saddle silhouette that offers adjustable swivel clasp hooks into two metal D-rings to create a croissant-shaped wristlet silhouette.

There are multiple sizes, and this mini version comes at the ideal time for summer events and wedding season. If you prefer a daily carry, this small suede option in powder blue is calling my name. Then if you are more of a carry everything everywhere kind of person, there is a large size as well.

I always knew the Ralph Lauren name, but it wasn’t until I went to my first Ralph Lauren Collection show in NYC that my full appreciation for the brand took hold. The Ralph Lauren Ricky Bag will continue to be one of the most quintessentially chic bags (one that you see in the wild on the Upper East Side still), and seeing the expansion and positive reception of the rest of the Ralph Lauren line makes me feel like there are more exciting bags to come from the brand.

How nice, so you’ve spotted this in the wild so far?

I was at a RL flagship store last week and now regret I didn’t check out their bags too closely. I missed this completely!

Very well put. Their RTW has always been sort of popular but I don’t think they’ve really had an opportunity to shine in the accessories department in a long time.

This bag seems cute!

It just reminds me of this decade’s version of a 00s hobo

These bags are gorgeous. I chased down the large one around Christmas but ended up returning it because the leather was so thin. The bag didn’t hold its shape once I had my things in it (which were basic- phone, wallet, keys, etc). Plus everything just sort of poked through. So disappointed.

Thanks for this post! RL generally has good quality and designs for its diffusion lines, and one of the nicest mid-range bags I have is from its Lauren/LRL line.

The Polo ID bags look very chic and sophisticated, and the prices are decent to boot. I hope this line will get more attention!

Very elegant. I’d like to check out the leather quality in person. I hope Phoebe Philo comes out with something similar.
