Whether you’re a regular shopper or only buy things that you really need, you’d surely have heard of Net-A-Porter. The luxury retail site celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and we daresay it has changed the way people have shopped for luxury items over the years.
Besides influencing our shopping habits and making merchandise accessible 24/7 at the tip of our fingertips, the sites have also impacted the way other traditional fashion houses conduct commerce on the Internet, changed our mindsets about how fine jewellery and high-end watches can be traded virtually, and served as the springboard for new emerging and independent labels to reach a wide global audience.
As for Net-A-Porter specifically, one thing that makes it tick is the curation of designer handbags. As of press time, the site carries more than 1,100 bag styles on the site which range from popular seasonal models like Bottega Veneta’s The Pouch to the new Baez tote from Gabriela Hearst. Indeed, the site’s growing repertoire of cult bag labels like Hearst’s has become a big draw for shopaholics.
To mark its 20th anniversary, Net-A-Porter has revealed just what exactly are the hitmakers were and are when it comes to the bags that customers from Singapore have been carting in the past two decades.
