• What is Bagology?

    Anita Daniel, a New York journalist, introduced the term Bagology in 1945. She used this term to describe the study of handbags to help further the understanding of what a bag contains, as well as an insight into the person who is carrying the bag.

    So what does a bag say about the person you are?

    Bagology explains that a bag can unveil what characteristics the carrier possesses. Carrying a bag has become an important part of the fashion world. You can see various methods being utilized on the catwalks of prestigious fashion shows.


    From the way you hold your bag to the type of bag you have chosen to carry, it all says something about the person you are, or at least trying to convey. A bag has the ability to take on a personality of its own, which brings a wealth of promise to your style. If you are typically an insecure person, a handbag can make you transform into an authority figure.

    This alone will allow you a boost of confidence in style, as well as the person you are. In the early stages of Bagology, men received advanced warnings about how women were carrying their bags and what it said about them.


    There are a lot of concepts that lose their relevants as the years pass, but Bagology is still alive and relevant to bag carriers. A bag is a very valuable companion, and you can feel a bit lost when it is left behind. The content of your bag is usually private, and not for others to look upon.

    This was a concept that was adapted for women with men, but the rise of the man bag has brought both genders into play. The inside might be private, but the outside is what you want to convey to the world.


    Bagology can really provide some interesting insight about who the bag carrier is. Life has changed a lot since 1945, but this concept is here to stay. Today, more than ever, this concept is more adaptable to bag carriers. As the field of bags that are offered by retailers has broadened.


    Let’s take a look at how the content of a woman’s bag has changed over the years.


    Boy times have changed, but some things will always remain. Get your Bagology knowledge right here on Serbags.com, where we believe it’s important for men and women to understand the true meaning behind the person carrying the bag, as well as the bag itself.
