Why every man should own these top 5 handbags in 2020
Lately, the relevance of accessories to the clothes they adorn can't be overemphasized, to be specific, one has become a street-style must-have. Handbags are now a fashion week show-goer’s necessity, with Dior celebrating its collections by releasing several now sought-after Saddlebags and Virgil Abloh rebranding menswear with his Louis Vuitton carryalls. As such, we have provided our top 5 handbags every man should own in 2020.

With the exception of a backpack or gym duffle, the thought of a man rocking a man purse was until recently laden in stigma. Products like tote bags, messenger bags for men, men's crossbody bag and fanny packs have been fairly standard for all genders for some time now, but these days handbags are no longer just a womenswear staple either. Instead, they’re stepping into the new decade as one of the most sought-after menswear trends, of course, credits to brands such as Gucci, Off-White™, LOEWE, and Prada.

An undeniable future-classic that’s destined to be a crucial summer carry.
