The Many Bags of Kate Moss

Today’s the first official day of New York Fashion Week, and while Megs and I are out and about doing the whole NYFW thing, we though it only appropriate that we give you an opportunity to spend some time looking through the considerable handbag hoard of a real, capital-F fashion icon, not just some celeb. The only choice, of course, was Kate Moss. Before the “model off duty” look was a thing, Kate was dressing in skinny pants, animal prints and lots of great handbags.

As you might expect, Kate’s collection skews largely neutral, and within that, largely black. In that way, she’s a girl after my own heart, and likely after many of yours. She’s designed several lines of bags for Longchamp, of course, but her whole personal collection was a joy to sift through, all the way from one of the first Balenciaga Motorcycle Bags ever made to the latest from Saint Laurent. Check out the full show below and wish us luck at Fashion Week!

  • laura

    some of the bags are great but her collection doesn’t impress me and it seems like she doesn’t take good care of her bags

  • Theo

    This bag looks fake. The feet are rounded the handles where they attach to the bag is also rounded when birkins are more angular.

    • Theo

      The red birkin…

      • Joshua

        Yeah, I agree. I think the bag is obviously fake. Maybe it’s a Birkin-inspired bag made by some unknown brand.

    LOVE,love love Kate Moss!!! she’s a true style star! while most of us carry a bag and baby it, to the point of putting napkins under to prevent scuffing, she uses bags the way they are meant to be. used, sometimes a bit abused, but i think that’s where the bag’s character come from. a bit of a scuff there, from some music festival, stuff like that, which makes memories.

    • AMDG

      I think if I could get all my designer goodies for free, I wouldn’t care so much about babying them either. I love Kate too, great style. She is one of a kind!

      I like bags with a little character. Plus if you can’t throw your bags around a bit and wear them in a bit then it prohibits you from having too much fun. Besides, a good bag can handle a bit of rough and tumble.

    Hahah the guy in the bottom right hand corner of the red Chanel clutch photo.
    What an envy-inducing bag collection!

  • Nívia

    I may not know who made this particular bag, but I do know, it´s her visual I liked most!

  • Nívia
