The Baguette bag first trended as part of Gen-Z’s movement back to the Y2K style of the 1990s and 2000s. Y2K style is a shiny, fun, and intense fashion period short for "the year 2000". This bold aesthetic is distinct in its shininess, colorfulness, chunky sneakers, baguette bags, baby t-shirts, pleated skirts, and uniquely shaped glasses.
We remember when Carrie Bradshaw passed a subtle message with it in the movie, Sex and The City. In the iconic line,
‘it’s not a bag, it is a baguette,’
Carrie sold the bags to the public and it made its way to being one of the unforgettable Y2K trends.
The baguette bags are small and narrow with a short strap that makes it a shoulder bag or a one-hand bag and have been brought up by both high fashion brands and everyday style .
Why baguettes are trending again?
In 2020, a few extra features were added to the classic Fendi bag. The elements included detachable handles, an extra hand for slinging it across the body, and chain handles, different shapes plus a mix of colors.
It's a typical case of when old returns, the trends sweep everybody along. This happens every 20 or so years and brings back the best of the nostalgic eras. Influencers, celebrities, and all of us have started rocking these bags as different labels are topping up their game – Prada, Gucci, Dior, and Louis Vuitton amongst others!
