“Keep your closet chic, minimal and timeless.” – Donna Zhong
This quote by Donna Zhong, who is the founder and chief designer of the New York-based Donna Zhong Official, is a cue to how certain fashion trends are always a must-have in your closet like the ‘90s baguette shoulder bag. Always keep space for vintage and classic fashion to make a comeback.
Did you know? In 1997, the first baguette bag was released by Fendi and was popularised by Sex and the City, the popular TV series.
With the classic shoulder bag’s major comeback, millennial fashionistas are flaunting their tuck-and-go arm candies. And we are absolutely loving it as well.
But why are Baguette bags a trend in 2021?
