This trendy bag from the 2000s is making a comeback

A lot has happened in two years… The year 2022 is placed under the sign of the practical. That’s why bowling bags
are in our wishlist, searches have increased by 29% according to Lyst.
Maria Grazia Chiuri designed some for the Dior 2022 cruise collection, named “Dior Vibe”. As the name suggests,
the designer’s pieces “combine the heritage of Dior and the world of sportswear,” “bringing a touch of boldness
to every silhouette.” The bowler bag is adorned with the house’s iconic monogram, Maria Grazia Chiuri was inspired
by the Saddle bowler bags that John Galliano had launched for Fall/Winter 2022/2022- a real treat for nostalgics.
Even if we are desperate to buy these Y2K nuggets, there are many vintage models that are worth a visit. clumtiscofit1971 Dior brought back the bowling bag during the cruise 2022 fashion show.

Miuccia Prada is credited with transforming bowlers – used to carry balls – the cult accessory was all
the rage during Dior’s Spring/Summer 2000 collections. The designer has modernized them, made them minimalist
and terribly sexy.
In the 90s, Karl Lagerfeld also regularly put these colorful bags on the top of the catwalk, not without reminding
the bright pink model (Farfetch Second Life actually offers a quilted bag dating from 1995). Marc Jacobs also succumbed
to the charms of this model, creating some when he was artistic director at Louis Vuitton. (Today, LV’s Alma and Speedy
bags are often compared to bowlers).
The Row has released several bowler bags, perfect for minimalist aficionados.
The counterpart of the bowling bag? The Bolide by Hermes of course. The house has been keeping the legacy alive for
over half a century. While visiting Henry Ford in the United States in the 1910s, Emile-Maurice Hermès was reportedly
inspired by a zipper he saw, patenting it in France and using it on the Bolide in 1923.
The vintage market is thriving. If you spend a little time, activate your notifications, you will find the rare pearl.
Let’s not forget that patience is the key.
