16 of the most popular designer bags of 2023 so far

We may have only hit the halfway mark of 2023, but if one thing is clear it's that oversized bags have reentered the chat. From the designer handbag of the season, Bottega Veneta's beloved Andiamo with its tight-knight intrecciato weave to slouchy options like Khaite's Olivia Hobo, mini accessories have taken a step back, for now at least.

Blame it on the noughties nostalgia, we certainly will. It's clear we're all lusting after the days when handbags were large enough to fit a Chihuahua; think Marc Jacobs relaunched Stam Bag. One need only Google Jane Birkin's overstuffed Birkin and Mary Kate Olsen's wine-stained mint-hued Balenciaga City for further inspo. The shift has been a long time coming if the secondhand market is anything to go off, with vintage YSL Mombasas swept up like hotcakes and an appetite for droopy vintage Bottega Veneta Hobo shoulder bags.

It's not all about hammock-like hobo bags either. There's an undeniable shift towards top handle bags too. We'll always hold a soft spot for the Lady Dior and it's mini iteration is the right balance of new and old. Maximillian Davis is churning out a refreshing offering of accessories at Ferragamo, the Louis Vuitton Speedy is back with a vengeance, and few of us are immune to the magic of Ms Prada's deceptively simple top handle option from Miu Miu AW23.
