What accessory did you covet most in secondary school? If you're like us, there was nothing like the status symbol of a logo-laden designer bag. But as it turns out, logo bags are quickly becoming a thing of the past since people are increasingly gravitating toward subtler designs.
Forbes reported on a new study from market research company NPD Group, which revealed that "one-third of the handbags purchased in the U.S. over the past year ending in June did not have a visible logo." Furthermore, the magazine reports that bags with logos on them have seen "the most drop in market share" compared to all styles and that a whopping 81% of millennials want logos to be subtle. Head over to Forbes to find out the rest of the results.
