A handbag is an absolute necessity for a modern woman, and many women feel completely lost without it. The handbag is not a new invention. People have been carrying them for thousands of years. The modern handbag is a symbol of fashion bags
handbags have been around for millennia. Even the ancient Egyptians were pictured in hieroglyphics and wall art wearing bags at their waists. Throughout history, both men and women have used handbags. In the 15th century, a beautifully embroidered purse was a traditional wedding gift for a groom to present to his new bride.
Handbags were not always fashion bags were popular women's accessories. Upper class women owned a handbag for every outfit and used it to store her essentials. One reason purses grew in popularity was because the clothing styles became more form fitting, making it hard to hide a bag underneath a gown. 18th century handbags were very beautiful and elaborately made, clear markers of a women's status.
By the 20th century, a handbag signified a woman's independence. Women's handbags continued to modernize over the years, with designers like Chanel, Hermes, and Louis Vuitton transforming the concept in the 1960s.
The Modern Handbag
Just like in the 18th century, handbags are still a sign of prestige and status. Some of the best designers today are Gucci, Prada, Cellini, Coach, and Dolce and Gabanna.
Different design houses are known for different signature looks. Ralph Lauren bags are preppy and classy. Burberry bags are recognized by their check pattern. Fendi bags sport a prominent and elegant double F.
While a modern woman doesn't need a purse that exactly matches her shoes and outfit as she did in past centuries, she is likely to have many handbags to choose from. Women's handbags are an integral accessory and hold all of her daily necessities. She won't leave home without it.Women's Handbags - A HistoryMACKLEMORE - THRIFT SHOP FEAT.
