We had a ton of great releases this year, but what were some of the stand outs? We asked the Loungefly marketing team to make the difficult decision of picking their favorite bags released this year:

Nomes, Marketing Associate – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Figural Mini Backpack

Black figural mini backpack in the shape of Black Panther

“I love the unique, sculpted design of this backpack, and the larger size as well. This was one of the most anticipated movies of the year and this backpack really fits in with the cutting-edge aesthetics of the film, while paying homage to the original Black Panther.” 

Aaron, DTC Content Producer – Lilo and Stitch Glow Halloween Candy Cosplay Passport Bag

Blue and purple passport bag in the shape of Stitch, wearing a witch hat and holding a pumpkin full of candy.

“My personal favorite release this year was the Lilo and Stitch Glow Halloween Candy Cosplay Passport Bag. A compact carrier to hold my everyday essentials when I am on the go. It combines one of my favorite Disney characters with my favorite holiday. I was instantly drawn to this style. On top of that, it glows-in-the-dark!” 

Amir, Influencer Specialist – Loki Variant TVA Mini Backpack

Beige mini backpack in the form of Loki's TVA Variant jumpsuit with a working light on the collar at the top.

“The Loki Variant TVA mini backpack. Loki is one of my favorite characters in the MCU, and the series reignited my love for the character! All the details in the jumpsuit (and who doesn’t love a jumpsuit), from the light-up feature to the Miss Minutes zipper pull, made this an instant favorite!” 

Ilana, Director, Marketing & Social – Garfield Loves Lasagna Mini Backpack

Red and white checkered backpack featuring Garfield on the front with a giant plate of lasagna

“When I first saw this backpack, it was love at first sight. The color palette, the all-over pattern, and most importantly, the lasagna. What's not to love? It's a stand-out bag that makes a street style statement!”

Chelsea, Senior Publicity Manager – Jurassic Park Logo Mini Backpack

Black and red mini backpack featuring the Jurassic Park logo on the front.

“My fav Loungefly bag of 2022 is the Jurassic Park Logo mini backpack. It holds a near and dear place in my heart because it was my very first Loungefly purchase! Being a huge fan of the original Jurassic Park film and dinosaurs, it was a bag I had to have. The attention to detail in person is incredible. I love the subtle debossed dinosaurs on the outside, the dinosaur fossil lining on the interior and the mosquito in amber zipper charm. Also doesn’t hurt that I get a lot of compliments when I wear it.”  

Sarah, Associate Copywriter – Harry Potter Slytherin Crossbody Bag

Green, silver, and black crossbody bag with a silver chevron stripe and a plaque of the Slytherin house logo on the front.

“My favorite has to be the Slytherin Crossbody Bag. As a die-hard Potter fan and someone who proudly is in Slytherin, I couldn’t contain my excitement about this bag (and the whole house collection!). It’s a bag that I love to wear out and about – and I can’t wait to wear it to a con!”
