Kendall Jenner Wore the Y2K Bag That's Upping Its It-Item Status by the Day

I certainly won't go so far as to assume that Kendall Jenner read my recent story about a certain 2022 It bag, but it does seem that we're on the same wavelength when it comes to trendy bags. The It bags I refer to in the story are Balenciaga's City and Cagole bags, both Y2K-esque styles that were inspired by the brand's popular Moto Bag from the early 2000s.

Given that Jenner is always on the cusp of trends and buzzy It items (often creating them herself) and that she's the creative director of Fwrd, I wasn't surprised to see her carrying Balenciaga's Cagole Bag earlier this week in L.A. Jenner chose the black XS size with hardware encrusted in rhinestones, which was the perfect accessory for her simple minidress and knee boots.

Let Jenner's new bag serve as further proof that the Cagole (and all of Balenciaga's moto-inspired bags) is getting more popular by the day. Shop it below if you're convinced.
