Now Trending: Vintage Style Handbags 

Today’s designer leather handbags and accessories are taking their fashion cues from some of the best styles and looks of the past. Ramp up your vintage style with these timely ideas. 

Vintage Style Trends 

You’re ready to incorporate some of the top vintage trends into your personal style repertoire, but slipping into clothing from the past can be tricky. Instead, incorporate these styles with vintage handbag inspiration and accessories to pay homage to times gone by and still look polished and sophisticated. 

90s and Y2K Nostalgia  

A big fashion favorite of the era was the fanny pack. Today’s look to honor the ‘90s and Y2K style is the belt bag. It’s the fanny pack’s slightly edgier, far more hipster cousin. Designer belt bags crafted from leather are an upgraded spin on this carefree, hands-free design. And since they are considered gender-neutral, men can wear them too. 

The Good Decade was all about the backpack. Brahmin’s leather backpacks have magnetic snaps and ample storage space. Various organizer pockets ensure there's a spot for all of your essentials. Carry one in textured black for an ultra-chic look that taps into Y2K’s hipster vibe. 

Statement Vintage Handbags & Pieces  

Statement pieces are always in style, no matter their decade. 

Colorful Satchels 

As Brahmin celebrates its 40th year, one of our favorite designs has become a classic in its own right. Our soft leather satchels, born out of our vintage Brahmin handbags, are cut from the finest Italian leather, just like they were 40 years ago. Available in more colors and graphic patterns than you can imagine, keep it stunningly simple with solid colored embossed leather bags. Or select a graphic print to add dimension and texture to anything you wear.   

Bold Jewelry

Let your designer jewelry do the heavy accessorizing with eye-catching pieces that need no introduction. Stack on a few bangles trimmed in leather and multi-colored hoop earrings for maximum effect. 

Exotic Textures  

From snakeskin to lizard, these exotic handbags and textures are charming, yet fierce enough to make you roar when you open your closet door. Our signature croc-embossed leathers in the Melbourne collection come in striking shades and unexpected color patterns. Try a carryall tote or wallet wristlet in this style. Feel the jungle with our animal-inspired textures like snakeskin, tiger, and more – all cut from genuine leather.  

Why Vintage Is Trending. Because It’s Timeless 

Vintage allows you to revisit a piece of your nostalgic past. Or you can try the modern-day versions of a popular bygone look. In addition, timeless pieces made from quality materials are always a wise investment. They can endure the rigors of time and use to become the heirlooms you cherish. 

Fashion loves to repeat itself. Experience your own vintage Brahmin bag inspired moment through our collections. And indulge yourself with trending handbags that will become the vintage collector items of the future.
