Other than PursBlog’s readers (and writers), perhaps the people who love handbags more than anyone else are rappers, and we’d like to think that somewhere (probably in Paris), Kanye West will be celebrating National Handbag Day along with us tomorrow. If you’ve listened to hip hop radio in the last 10 years, you know exactly what we’re talking about – songwriters seem to shop as much as we do, which is a lot, when you factor in that shopping is our job.

Here’s Sarah Jessica Parker in NYC with her kids, carrying an as-yet-unreleased Coach Borough Bag. The Borough collection is brand new for Fall 2013 for Coach, and even though it’s not out yet, it should be available soon. This collection has a noticeably more modern and sleek vibe than most other Coach bags of the very recent past, and seems decidedly less, well, Coach-y.
Here’s actress Sophia Bush, one of our favorite celeb bag lovers, headed to a salon in LA, carrying both a 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Gusset Tote and a Lanvin Love Pouch. You can snatch up Sophia’s oversized Target tote for the extremely reasonable price of $55 at Target, natch. (It looks like it would make a pretty decent carry-on bag, in a pinch.) You can also get her metallic Lanvin clutch for $508 at farfetch.com.
Kim Kardashian is back in the public eye, as of this week. She crawled out of her top secret baby-rearing compound for Paris Fashion Week, and now she’s back in Los Angeles. Here she is arriving at LAX after her Paris trip, carrying a beige Balenciaga City Bag. This bag is a particular fave of hers, and by far one of her least-flashy bags.
Sarah Michelle Gellar was recently photographed with a shiny black Chanel Patent Quilted Tote while doing press rounds for her new CBS show The Crazy Ones in NYC. Sarah looks extra polished here in her blazer/leather pants/sandals/Chanel bag combo; also, who would have thought it’d be warm enough in October for sandals in NYC? Leather seems to be a huge fall trend amongst the celeb set; we’ve seen leather pants and dresses on a diverse smattering of celebs in the last few weeks.
Here it is, folks. The one we’ve all been waiting for. None of the international fashion weeks attract mega-watt celebrities quite like Paris Fashion Week, and with brands like Chanel and Louis Vuitton presenting in the French capital, you know that the handbags on the arms of the guests will be just as lust-worthy as it gets. Spring 2014 didn’t disappoint – from beginning to end, attendees toted their best, most photo-worthy bags, and luckily, photos were indeed taken.
Here’s Khloe Kardashian, clad in all black and white, arriving to film a scene for Keeping Up With The Kardashians at a restaurant in Studio City, CA. (Yes, it’s STILL on, and they’re STILL filming more episodes.) She’s carrying a Chanel Lego Mini Flap Bag, which is a leather shoulder bag version of the $10K Chanel Lego Clutch that was so popular from Spring 2013.
Here’s Heidi Klum, looking pleased as punch to spot a pap haunting the perimeters of a children’s soccer game. That’s her boyfriend/bodyguard Martin Kristen in the blue tee and sunglasses. Heidi is carrying an uber-covetable Reed Krakoff Boxer Tote. Heidi’s Boxer seems to have a snakeskin flap – we couldn’t find one quite so exotic online, but you can grab a similarly grey version for $1,290 at Saks.
Here’s actress Emma Roberts, strolling around West Hollywood and drinking coffee with a burgundy leather Emilio Pucci Flap Bag on her arm. This version of the bag, which looks as though it has dozens of small hoop earrings as trim, was produced several seasons ago and isn’t around any longer, but this black, non-pierced python version is still available for $1,472 at FarFetch.
Sofia Vergara was recently spotted doing a little shopping in NYC, dressed to the nines (per usual) and carrying a beautiful matte grey Givenchy Antigona Bag. This color is brand new for fall, so it has to be a very recent addition to Sofia’s collection. You can snatch up a grey Antigona for yourself for $2,435 at Net-A-Porter. Looking for something a little more daring?
