Denim bags have been one of summer's favorite recurring trends since Y2K. Popularity is further supported by the frequent appearance of denim bags from both Chanel and Louis Vuitton as part of their Spring/Summer collections. Sotheby's marketplace also has a curated selection of the Chanel and Louis Vuitton denim bags from both current and past seasons. Our Handbag Specialists have picked a few of their favorites. Act quickly since all bags on Sotheby's marketplace are available for immediate purchase.

Y2K and Denim Bags

Denim bags are becoming a summer staple. They pair perfectly with summer whites, breezy floral dresses and other summer hues. Chanel has been creating denim bags since the 1990s, but like the classic black flap, the denim bags are often hard to find at retail. Louis Vuitton famously launched the first denim monogram bag in 2005 with Marc Jacob at the helm to instant success. Pop culture references to denim and cowboy culture are hotter than ever this season with Beyonce's Hit "TEXAS HOLD 'EM" and Pharrell Williams most recent western themed Fall/Winter 2024 collection.

To help you add some denim to your summer looks, take a closer look at our favorite denim bags from Chanel and Louis Vuitton.

Vintage Chanel is always highly sought after and denim with tortoiseshell bakelite strap and turn lock is a rare find. This Chanel Denim Mini Square Classic Flap from 1997 is perfect for elegant outdoor dining. We love the yellow contrast stitching on the deep blue denim. The strap and CC turn lock in tortoiseshell also makes this piece highly collectible. Available for $9,900 on Sotheby's marketplace.

In addition to the blue denim, other denim colors were released. Louis Vuitton re-released denim monogram bags in 2024 called the LV Remix in a range of new models and a new faded denim color. These bags are both nostalgic and modern with new models and updated versions of older models.
