There are It bags that are a flash in the pan – they’re in for 6 months and everyone’s got one, and just as suddenly, they are gone. Then there are It bags that are so durable and classic that they withstand the test of time, becoming a standard part of the rotation in any well-rounded wardrobe. Chanel’s Caviar bag and the Louis Vuitton Keepall are prototypically classic bags. One bag that has stayed on the scene since its debut in 2005 is the Marc Jacobs Stam bag. Its pleasant, pouchy shape, quilted texture, gold kiss closure, and heavy chain strap create the equation for the perfect bag. With a vintage look that’s been updated to modern handbag standards, it manages to evoke the feel of being both timelessly chic and of-the-moment trendy. This is one bag that’s never going to go out of style.
Hoards of celebrities carry this bag, and pair with everything from evening gowns to work out clothes:
