Aughties In Review: The It Bag Generation

Maybe I was hasty in proclaiming the 2000s the Shoe Decade, when we were all clearly preoccupied with status bags. It’s all we thought about!!! But again, what is the defining purse of the Aughties? Is it:

1. Hermès Birkin Bag (yes its from the ’80s, but it became ubiquitous in the 2000s)?

Hemès Birkin Bag

2. Fakes!?

3. Anya Hindmarch‘s This Is Not A Plastic Bag?


4. Takashi Murakami for Louis Vuitton — specifically the Cherry Blossom ones?

By the by, Anya Hindmarch’s collection for Target launches on October 12.
