While big fashion outlets like Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar do a fine job at reporting the newest trends and runway releases, PurseBop often finds herself more reliant on our Instagram community to find out what truly is the latest and greatest. Over the years, our Instagram accounts @PurseBop and @BopTalk have grown tremendously. We also just want to add that our little family of like-minded fashionistas has great taste and our feed is constantly full of style inspiration, so please keep up the good work!
Today, we’re sharing the top 10 bags (in no particular order) that have been catching our attention on Instagram lately. We’ve calculated these picks based off factors such as the number of sightings in our tagged photos, hashtags, and homepage recommendations. We can use this short list as a case study to understand some of our community’s preferences and loves. It’s always interesting to think about how popular bags go through their runs, and then something else pops up on the scene. Compare this list to what you may have seen on Instagram a couple of months ago and think about how the list could change even just a short period from now!
The Evelyne bag is a regular in the Hermès’ collection and by no means an “it” bag that would go out of style anytime soon. We’ve just been seeing her more and more on our instagram feed. Perhaps this is due to the summer and travel season. The Evelyne makes the perfect on-the-go bag and is naturally a crowd favorite!

We remember when we first started hearing the buzz about the Gucci Marmont bag around this time last year. The momentum has yet to stop, and it almost seems like pictures of the Marmont are at an all-time high right now. Everyone is loving Gucci, but hopefully Alessandro Michele can keep us fascinated (Read: Is Gucci Getting Too Repetitive?).
Anything Louis Vuitton x Supreme
Even before LV x Supreme launched in stores, people were dying to get their hands on this collection. The desire amplified even more once Louis Vuitton announced they would be closing pop-up stores and cancelling the collection. Alas, the hype over LV x Supreme has not died down and we are seeing bags, accessories, and clothing all over Instagram from the coveted few who were able to snag these special pieces.

Much like the Chanel Mini, the Hermès Constance bag has a traditional appeal that is undeniable. The Constance is one of Hermès’ most exclusive bags, and many collectors seem to be in the race to snag it.
Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis
The Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis is one of LV’s more classic bags as well. You can easily tote the Pochette Metis anywhere as it has so many convenient features such as a crossbody strap and ample pockets. Fashionistas on Instagram are proud to show off this handbag workhorse.
The Lady Dior bag is so stately and regal. With its feminine grace, it is a picture perfect bag – naturally it makes sense why we see it all over our Instagram feed!

Chanel Vanity Case
The Chanel Vanity Case launched with the Chanel Airlines collection and became a topic of conversation from that very moment. This bag still gets a lot of appreciation on Instagram because the silhouette is so unique. It is a dreamy bag that completes the set for any Instagram photo shoot.
