What makes an “IT” bag an “IT” bag? All the coolest “IT” girls are carrying it of course! And let me tell you, the rising brand AUPEN has been absolutely killing it in that department. The “IT” bag brand is loved by Hailey Bieber, Jennifer Lawrence, and Selena Gomez to name but a few, and more specifically Taylor Swift on a date night in New York with Travis Kelce, truly establishing itself in “IT” bag status.

The brand, which was first spotted on Kylie Jenner in November 2022, has since gathered an impressive A-list following. And we can understand why, the designs are chic, timeless, structural, and sustainable, and most bags under £250.

Founded in 2022 by Skye Tan, Aupen is a vegan, ethical handbag brand with studios in Brooklyn and Singapore. This small New York brand prides itself on sustainability and craftsmanship above all when it comes to its bags. Aupen brand codes revolve around the Japanese design principle Fukinsei, which is based on the idea of beauty within asymmetry. Each bag is made of circular, primarily recycled materials.

Aupen has quickly become iconic for its signature asymmetrical designs, which come in a wide variety of colours and variations. Most of the pieces have motivational names, like fearless, nirvana, and Purpose to name a few. Nirvana has been favoured by Taylor Swift most recently. And there are options for every taste, whether it’s classic black, a bright neon shade, or luxe details like crystal and chains.
