The ‘Rachel’ bag is a thing and you need to get the memo

Some iconic noughties bags are making a comeback and I’m very much enjoying this sartorial walk down memory lane. First, Dior brought back the saddle bag, then Fendi re-vamped its baguette.

Now cult shoe brand and editor favourite By Far has just issued a bag inspired by one of our favourite TV characters of all time: Rachel Green.

Back in the late nineties, when you asked for a ‘Rachel’, you would get side-swept, choppy layers. But in late 2018, you will get a gorgeous chic and minimal shoulder bag.

Available on Net-A-Porter, the bag’s description goes, ‘You’d be right in thinking that BY FAR’s ‘Rachel’ bag has a cool ’90s feel – the design is inspired by the wardrobe of Jennifer Aniston’s character in the hit TV show Friends. The style is perfectly sized to hold the essentials and has a short detachable strap. Bella Hadid was spotted carrying hers in-hand, but it fits comfortably on the shoulder, too.’

And we can totally see it. Think the period where Rachel worked at Ralph Lauren, wearing impeccable tailoring and simple shoulder bags such as this one.

I’m investing the faux-croc version for a look that’s still very much a nod to the 90s, but is bang on trend.
