I Found the Next It Bag and Naturally, NYC Girls Are Already All Over It


I’ve always been fascinated by the style in New York. Even before I moved to the city myself, I always made a point of stalking what the stylish set was wearing and shopping accordingly. NYC girls are always first to test-drive the newest emerging trends and the city is a breeding ground for fashion’s latest It items. Trendy as the style may be here, though, it’s never not practical. So you can imagine that when I started seeing an It bag emerge as a favorite among my peers, I was all over it.

The next It bag that’s winning over fashion people in New York? Meet Mansur Gavriel’s Candy Bag. Launched amidst New York Fashion Week’s return to in-person shows last month, I spotted the bag on a number of editors and influencers running in between shows and appointments. I even got my hands on the bag myself and am pleased to share that it’s quickly become my go-to. Not only does it fit all the essentials, but the patent finish makes it the perfect addition to any fall ‘fit and its mid-range price tag makes it significantly more accessible than most designer It bags. As our senior editor Allyson Payer already noted, the Candy Bag is one we can see ourselves reaching for so often that we’d forget our other bags exist.

Without further ado, scroll down to see how fashion insiders are wearing the bag, shop the many colors is comes in, and then see more mid-priced bags with It potential below.

The Candy bag is already a go-to style among top influencers like Alyssa Coscarelli.

The fashion set has taken to styling the bag a number of different ways, from matching skirt sets to pretty dresses.

The shoulder bag shape holds a surprising amount, making it one of the more practical picks as far as ’90s bags are concerned.

I opted to style the bag with a coordinated tailored vest and blazer.

Simple basics like trousers and jersey tops are another favorite way to wear the bag.

I love how the patent finish really pulls any look together.

From more casual looks to dressier ensembles, the versatile shape that works well with anything.

But plays especially well with fall-favorite knits.

Simple, but so stunning.

It’s only a matter of time until a new BY FAR style becomes an It bag.

This color combo stands out while still being wearable.

This left me speechless.

While Staud has plenty of more statement bags, this understated style is speaking to me.

Why be boring?

This one has been in my cart for months now.

If you want an easy-to-wear shape that feels totally unique, this is for you.


Cloud-like bags are one of my favorite bag trends yet.

This leather pleating, though.


This will put your everyday tote to shame.

This little top-handle bag is perfect for date nights and dinners.
