THE GOING OUT BAGS YOU NEED

Paragraph

WORDS: MARNI ROSE MCFALL

Once upon a time we fell in love with party bags. Then, they were made of plastic, filled with sweets, balloons and flavoured lip balms. But today? Our party bags are all grown up. This Christmas, we’re going all in. On the loudest looks, the biggest energy and unrelenting style. We’re heading to the hottest party of the year after all. And as for your plus one? Well, it needs to be one of these party bags. Introducing the must-have party bags of the season. Think all-out glitter, Y2K fever and the little black bag, c/o Balenciaga, Givenchy, Miu Miu and more.

1. THE Y2K BAG

Get in losers, we’re gonna party like it’s 2005. The Y2K aesthetic is still reigning supreme, and this spring we’re channelling our inner Paris Hilton with bags fit for a Noughties princess. Top of our list? Diesel’s iconic 1DR bag. Available in every colour of the rainbow, right now we can't get enough of this iteration which is decked out in denim and finished with the standard silver big d emblem. If the Barbieworld has you in a chokehold? Lean into it with styles from Paco Rabanne and Balenciaga. The Attico’s Via Dei Giardini Bag was made for dancing all night, while Jacquemus baby pink Bisou Bag proves if anyone is the prince of party bags, it’s Simone Porte Jacquemus. Flip phone optional.

2. THE DISCO BAG

Dressing like a disco ball? It’s on the agenda this Christmas. That’s right, it’s time to cover your party bag in sparkles. Marc Jacobs Mini Shoulder Bag is the grown-up way to do glitter, designed with rhinestones all over, it’ll catch the light as you move around the room. Heroes of the heavy metal hitter genre, Paco Rabanne’s Sparkling Nano bag is a classic for a reason and this silver spin on the fash-pack fave does everything we need a party bag to do. It’s even big enough to fit your lip gloss in, so you can stay shining all night long. Feeling it? Go all in on disco fever with Diesel’s diamante adorned denim 1DR bag. That’s hot.

3. THE LITTLE BLACK BAG

We’re all acquainted with the little black dress, but the little black bag? It’s quickly become a partywear essential. Case in point? Gucci’s Tiger Hobo Bag. In a classic baguette shape, it’s sleek chic and instantly eye catching thanks to the next level gold hardware, which is comprised of a gold chain link strap and a golden tiger that hangs down the centre of the bag. Roar. If you’re an advocate for less being more, make yours a mini via Givenchy and Saint Laurent. As for The Attico? Their Nappa Clutch bag is equal parts chic and slouchy, making it the perfect companion for your next all-nighter.

1. THE METALLIC BAG

Thanks to two hot topics (Read: Beyoncé and the AW23 runway shows) right now, we’re completely obsessed with metallics. So it’s a good thing a metallic bag makes the perfect party favour. Top of our list? The glistening, glitterball Gucci Horsebit bag. Pulled from the brands archive, the bag was an O.G. Tom Ford-Era Gucci pick, and right now it’s being toted by every A-lister in town. Brand of the year Miu Miu have given their cult Matalasse Bag a golden ticket and re-worked the classic style in shimmering gold. And if you want to bring a bit more Barbie into your life, then Givenchy’s shimmering pink Voyou bag is a must cop. Now, grab the aux and blast Alien Superstar.
