The Many Bags of January Jones (7)

In honor of this weekend’s Mad Men season finale, we thought that it was about time that we look into the handbag wardrobe of the show’s very own Betty Hofstadt Draper Francis, January Jones. When we do these features, we try to pick stars whose accessories choices are interesting and varied; it’s just more fun to look at someone who buys both Coach and Chanel than someone who sticks to one brand or one color or one type of bag. Variety, as they say, is the spice of life.

In that sense, January Jones fits our accessory ideal to a T. Satchels, clutches, mini crossbodies, totes, shoulder bags – she does it all, and in a variety of colors, sizes and price points. In January, I see a bit of myself: a woman who loves a good bag, no matter what form that bag might take. (Side note: I wish I saw more of myself in January, because that would probably increase my chances of being a smokin’ hot former model who knows Jon Hamm.) Take a look at some of our favorites from January’s oeuvre, after the jump.

We’ll start with January’s Yves Saint Laurent Cabas ChYc Tote because it seems like EVERY celeb has one. You can have your own for $2150 via Net-a-Porter.

January does color like a champ as well – check out this awesome Reed Krakoff Gym Bag in vivid green. $990 via Net-a-Porter.

January was the face of Versace accessories for a little while, so it’s only natural that she’d be spotted toting a Versace Suede and Leather Satchel. Unfortunately, it’s from a few seasons back and no longer available.

On the other hand, if you’d prefer something that’s a little more budget-friendly than Versace tends to be, this Coach Classic Leather Duffel holds everything you need at a great price. $398 via Coach.

If you dig color but prefer a smaller scale, January’s Tila March Zelig Studded Clutch might work out better. Unfortunately, I can’t find the reasonably priced piece anywhere online.

Also not sold online: the Chanel Wallet on a Chain Crossbody that January wore to The Webster x Target launch. You’ll have to contact Chanel at 800-550-0005 to purchase.

January’s Coach Kristn Embossed Python Crossbody is a similarly proportioned option at a much more down-to-earth price point. $238 via Coach.

Not concerned about price points? May I suggest the Dior Delices Pouch Clutch that January carried for her most recent birthday? It’s no longer online, but everything from Dior costs a pretty penny.

As far as everyday bags go, January’s got the right idea with her tonal black Givenchy Antigona Satchel. $2570 via Barneys.

And last but not least, a neat, ladylike satchel that’s perfect for someone who stars on a midcentury show like Mad Men – the Prada Pyramid Frame Bag. $2950 via Neiman Marcus.

  • 19yearslater

    She can pull off so many styles. ‘Cause she’s, you know, January Jones. Also, I freakin’ love her name. Just weird enough whilst staying classy. 

    • Amanda Mull

      I also love her name. January is a great name. I think I’m just all-around envious of her.

  • Sandra Rowley

    Love the YSL and the Givenchy….

    you looking for a perfect bag for summer? Cheap Prada Bags
    will be a perfect choice.

    may sound a tad odd, but I’m consistently impressed with Prada’s
    dedication   to designing quirky,
    intellectually rigorous, thoroughly modern runway   collections that won’t sell particularly
    well to anyone other than slavish  
    fashion devotees. Few companies of a similar size are willing to put
    things as   broadly inaccessible as
    Prada Fall 2012 down the runway, and   that continued bravery is something that
    gives me a great deal of respect for  
    Miuccia Prada as a creative force.

    you like these bags will hinge largely on whether or not you find   Prada’s signature retro-modernism
    enchanting. I do, so the loud 60s prints and  
    even larger gemstone embellishments on trim, minimal bags were right up
    my   alley. The tiny embellished
    minaudieres with leather shoulder straps were  
    another odd highlight; I don’t think I’ve ever seen bags with quite
    that   combination of elements, which
    says a lot when you consider that I spend 40-60   hours per week looking at handbags. Another
    treat? Unlike most designers,   Miuccia
    paired every single look in this show with a corresponding handbag. If   only more brands would get on board with
    that idea.

    Love her purses. But her style in real life is in no comparison to Betty Draper.

    All of the bags are lovely, but I have to say I really love the Tila March Zelig Studded Clutch.  


    she does have good taste!
