I never have a problem choosing a handbag to go with my day-to-day outfits. After all, I have plenty of time to contemplate bags as much as I want, and like anyone else, I have my go-to options.
One of the most stand-out collections in recent memory from Chanel is its Métiers d’Art Paris-Edimbourg Collection. The Scottish theme took center stage in everything from the clothing to bags. This collection is a personal favorite, with tweeds, plaids and metals showing through in classic Chanel fashion.
Just because sale season is winding down doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of awesome bags out there to pick up at a discount. On the contrary; lots of retailers have added to their online sales, bringing in a fresh crop of markdowns that should benefit those of us who have hedged our bets to see how low prices would go.
Miuccia just gets me, man. I should just sign my entire wardrobe budget over to her, between Prada and Miu Miu. I just bought a pair of Prada shoes earlier this week (after initially going shopping to scout out a pair of Miu Mius), and now I’m scheming to making one of these Prada Mini Bags my next big purchase.
Here’s Fergie toting her trusty Saint Laurent Ligne Y Tote around Santa Monica. As you can see, she is still heavily pregnant. Thankfully, she’s staying out of her signature platform pumps and trekking around town in a pair of comfy Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro sneakers.
In case you’re not yet familiar with CR Fashion Book, let me explain – the “CR” stands for “Carine Roitfeld,” the incredibly influential and generally brilliant former editor of French Vogue. When she left her former post, she consulted for a little while before forming a new indie magazine, which is pretty great.
Since we started our The Many Bags of… series over a year ago, we’ve been making periodic mental note of the celebrities that we’d like to revisit for a second round. Some stars have simply been too bag-crazy for too long to do justice to them in one shot, and others, like supermodel and all-around perfect human being Miranda Kerr, have stepped up to the handbag plate so much in the past year that their bag choices in that time period totally eclipse whatever they had going on before that, no matter how good at was.
Confession: I don’t carry a wallet. I haven’t in years, perhaps even since college. In my bag, I have a slim Proenza Schouler billfold for cash and a Marc Jacobs card case that’s attached to my keys, and because I’m something of a minimalist when it comes to what I put inside my handbag, I usually leave it at that.
I think we can safely say the celeb obsession with Celine Luggage Totes has peaked. We’ve seen fewer and fewer celebs with their Celines in recent weeks, but here’s actress Jordana Brewster (of TNT’s Dallas and the Fast & Furious franchise, natch) carrying a Celine Luggage Tote in LA.
