If you’re looking for a bit of handbag inspiration, you’ve landed in the right spot. Fashionphile just released its Ultra-Luxury Resale Report—a complete digest on everything to know about what’s trending in the designer resale market. I have to say there’s a lot of fascinating information in the report, starting with an intro from Sarah Davis, the founder, president, and CCO, in which she talks about the brand’s New York City expansion, new YouTube channel, and blog, now dubbed Academy by Fashionphile. If you keep going, you’ll find a plethora of information on bags, jewelry, top colors, and so much more.
On the bag front, specifically, the most-popular-handbag section felt quite noteworthy. Per Fashionphile’s report, “demand for Y2K accessories continues to dominate, with trendy pieces from the early aughts increasing in sales compared to last year. Prada’s sparkly renditions of their iconic, 2000s-era nylon bags, which arguably awakened the rhinestone craze, has inspired more ultra-luxury brands to revisit past staples and step into the gaudy Y2K scene.”
Below, you’ll uncover a few of the popular styles in the Y2K category that will continue to trend hard into 2023 and beyond. For reference, the Fendi baguette had a 101% increase in sales, and there’s been a 110% increase in Prada Re-Edition styles.
