The New Luxury Of The Anonymous Anti-It Bag

Stylish Anti It Bag Trend

A few weeks ago, I found myself browsing through a very chic antique shop when I saw this elegant older woman walk in-a typical off-duty casual look, she embodied a confident city lady. She dawned a Moncler puffer coat, sensible light-wash jeans, and simple Stan Smith trainers. Her bag was fantastic, though unrecognisable it stole the show. It wasn’t covered in a monogram not a tiny logo (as far as I could see). It was brown, square, and discreet. But this intriguing anonymous medium-size piece was of obvious stellar quality: thick leather, a sturdy shape, and over-the-shoulder practical. Upon a second glance, I realized it was a Tod’s bag with a vintage veneer. It was almost nondescript, yet it was the most impactful purse I’ve seen in quite some time.

A bag as one of the most important accessories, has the power to uplift, elevate, and pull together an outfit. It’s a timeless symbol, whether you are an exec hauling a Saint Laurent Sac De Jour, a stylish fashion girl parading a Celine Satchel Tote, or a vintage lover clutching a classic Prada Tote. The visible everyday use combined with the knowledge of how much that bag must cost speaks volumes about how a minimalist investment conscious person approaches fashion. 

More powerful than the purses I mentioned above are the anonymous and well-made ones. When you look at a casual looking designer bag, some people turn to the Louis Vuitton Neverful which comes in a variety of sizes. The monogram is recognizable and defiantly lacks anonymity. This could be the same for the classic Chanel Flap bag which comes in many leathers, colours, and designs. As classic as this piece is known to the fashion world, it still has a logo. Maybe not as massive, but it is still present.

When it comes to describing the anti-it bags, it goes without saying. A bag that has quality craftsmanship, sustainable hardware, or strap, and well-crafted in beauty is the unexpected. 

One may wish for the perfect shoulder bag, great drop, excellent shape, and the perfect depth so you don’t have to limit what you can fit inside and be able to be dressed up and down for all occasions. This may seem like a tall order, but you can find this exact design by looking on the vintage market. 

I have a few lovely examples of anonymous anti-it bags to wear this season and always look put together. 

*Shop the styles.

  1. I'm not a fan of logos on bags and clothes. I much prefer a good quality bag that doesn't have the brand plastered all over it. Thanks for linking up!

  5. I love handbags and have several. My daughter is a big fan of LV and tells me I could own a bag for what I've invested in my others. But, I like variety, and I couldn't have that with LV or any other designer bag. This was a very interesting post, Heather.

  8. These are gorgeous bags and I think there's so much more to our purses and what we wear than a logo/label!
