The Many Bags of Taylor Swift Part 2

In some ways, it seems like Taylor Swift has been daring me to write a second investigation into her handbag collection all summer. Every day when I open our photo agency’s archives, there are new photos of her walking to and fro in New York City, enjoying her morning constitutional, her evening constitutional and sometimes several constitutionals in between, generally wearing a two-piece matching outfit and a handbag dangling from her forearm. To me, her intentions are clear.

Even if you don’t believe that Taylor Swift is trying to surreptitiously communicate with me through the paparazzi, taking a look through her quirky handbag collection is an interesting study in celebrity branding. Instead of carrying things that others have decided are popular or of-the-moment, Swift sticks to less recognizable options from both major brands and independent designers alike. The result is that she always looks like herself instead of looking like an It Bag billboard, just like the last time we took a look at her handbag habits in 2012.

    Yay! Finally!!! It’s refreshing to see new array of bags..T-Swift is a testament of individualism..This just proves that you don’t have to carry the same thing as everyone does to get notice, just be confident in your own skin and stay true to yourself…#Bravehearts

    I really go back and forth between loving some of these looks and really disliking some.

    love every single piece!

    All her bags are plain, solid color and simple. For a 24 year old artist she could add more patterns and bright colors (maybe give that red lipstick a break?) to her handbags.

      Six months ago I lost my job and after that I was fortunate enough to stumble upon a great website which literally saved me. I started working for them online and in a short time after I’ve started averaging 15k a month… The best thing was that cause I am not that computer savvy all I needed was some basic typing skills and internet access to start… This is where to start———————–,.,..

    While I am not crazy for any of these bags and they are so not my style, I must say they really work with her style and look, they all go very well with what she was wearing IMO. The bags may look very simple and “boring” some might say, but they all complete the kind of look she wanted to create so perfectly. And I appreciate that she doesn’t carry those hot brand names/it-bags that every single famous girl/celeb has.

    She’s like the boring and poor man’s Dita Von Teese, but with no style.

      You took the words right out of my mouth!

    I loved all her bags except the small heart shaped one. She has such classic style. She looks like “a million bucks” in all the pictures due to the great styles of the bags.

  • Monique

    she has tons of boring extremely similarly structured bags that all cost thousands. i will never understand.

  • mel

    I love her bags as they portray her unique style perfectly!

  • Graceful Shopper

    I can see myself wearing every single one of these. The D and G bags are the ones I covet the most, and it’s annoying that I can’t find them anywhere!!
