We’re back uptown today to bring you more street-style bags from Manhattan’s Upper East Side. No matter the temps, the bag heat is always on in the UES. The pretty, posh neighborhood is home to some of New York’s best bag collectors. The charming city blocks surrounding Central Park make the perfect runway for native New Yorkers and tourists alike. This fall, as the temps dropped and the calendar crawled closer to winter, we spent an afternoon strolling the Upper East Side to see what New Yorkers were carrying as they headed to lunch, dipped in and out of designer boutiques, and ran errands as the holidays ramped up. There was a plethora of Chanel, classic Hermès (of course), some Celine, and so much more.

Spoiler alert: we weren’t disappointed, and we don’t think you will be either! Take a look below at the many street style bags we spotted in NYC’s Upper East Side!

Lmao. Their faces when they see they’re being photographed. I hope they get told what it’s for after the photo. NYC is FULL of crazies right now and you can never be too careful. I’d flip out if I caught someone taking a picture of me.

I took this set last month in NYC. While I don’t need permission to photograph strangers in the street, I may sometimes ask, other times I snap without the person’s knowledge, and sometimes the subject notices. I usually either just smile or say ‘thank you’. I have yet to encounter anyone angry or confrontational in my years of shooting street style.

Exactly! I wonder if they have to ask permission to publish?

I don’t care if it’s “out of style”, I love the Valentino bags. The rock studies get me every time. The Versace Medusa bag is gaudy, and I LOVE it!

The Medusa is from the Fendace collab (as is her coat)! Loved that collection so much. The sky blue version of that Medusa was gorgeous, too.
