The @Y2KBags Instagram account is a feast for the eyes. It chronicles the best – and most often forgotten – cell phone moments in the history of pop culture. Remember when Kim Kardashian carried baby Mason Disick in a Goyardine Saint Louis GM Tote? You do now. (Check out when you see Kylie and Kendall later). Another time, Sofía Vergara surfed with a Fendi Spy bag on her arm. And it wouldn’t be a nostalgic Y2K event without Paris Hilton, who had plenty of shots, including a woman who was snapped after grabbing a Louis Vuitton Multicolor Monogram Alzer bag from a powder-pink car. she is carrying a Neverfull Louis Vuitton bag.

The account, which has 5,000 followers, is managed by a 28-year-old anonymous user and mobile enthusiast, Alejandro who works in the secondary market. “I’m a walking encyclopedia because I eat, live, and breathe,” he says. Alejandro started working in fashion and pop culture at a young age. “I have two cousins who will buy it Man a We every week, once a week. There was Paris, Lindsay, Nicole, and everyone in the movie clips every day, they were carrying these bags,” he said.
Part of the beauty behind @Y2KBags is that Alejandro curated a collection of photos that capture the crazy tabloid culture of the time. She includes snaps of celebrities wearing these It bags that recall the no-clothes, no-makeup look of the “Stars – Just Like Us!” pages, and the most photogenic paparazzi moments since then. In one picture, we see a pants-and-shoes Marc Jacobs sitting on the street, smoking a cigarette, sitting next to the green Birkin of the army. In a later film, Spencer Pratt is feeding strawberries to Heidi Montag, who is wearing a Fendi Spy bag.
