While searching through pictures of sun-dappled celebs clad in their best boho finery at Coachella earlier this week, I found myself wondering why I had yet to take an in-depth look at the bag collection of Kate Bosworth. Then, of course, I remembered that I’m the one in charge of these things, and if I wanted to make this post happen, then I could just do it myself. So here we are! Kate Bosworth. Let’s do this.
If you’re familiar with the petite, blonde fashion plate, then you know that she tends to wear (and carry) a particular group of of-the-moment designers, many of them New York-based friends of her or her stylist. Her collection tends toward functional, solid-color bags from a select group of brands, so if you’ve found yourself envious while looking at paparazzi photos of her in the past, you’re going to salivate over what’s below.
Kate carries more Mulberry than perhaps any American celeb we’ve seen. Here, she’s toting the Mulberry Zigzag Lily Bag. Pick up the black version (on sale!) for $1,225 via MyTheresa.
Instead of choosing Mulberry’s blockbuster It Bags, Kate tends to choose designs that are less recognizable, like this Mulberry Leopard Print Clipper Tote. Shop Mulberry via Net-a-Porter.
This Mulberry Harriet Clutch Wallet, carried cross-body, is quite subtle. Shop Mulberry via Net-a-Porter.
Kate’s Mulberry Carter Camera Bag is one of my personal favorites from the brand – I wish they had made it during more than one season! Shop Mulberry via Net-a-Porter.
This slouchy Mulberry Leah Bag fits Kate’s luxe-bohemian style perfectly. Shop Mulberry via Net-a-Porter.
Like any celeb, Kate often shows up at fashion events carrying a bag from the brand who invited her, like this irridescent Burberry Prorsum Wristlet to the company’s LA store opening. Shop Burberry via Net-a-Porter.
A Theyskens’ Theory fashion show requires a Theyskens’ Theory Veda Azia Bag, natch. Buy through Theory for $745.
When one goes to Chanel, one carries a Chanel Minaudiere Bag, unless one wants to incur the wrath of Karl Lagerfeld.
I wasn’t a big fan of the Neiman Marcus x Target Prabal Gurung Bow Clutch when it was in stores, but Kate almost pulls it off at the collection’s debut.
Kate and fiancé Michael Polish seem, uh, really into each other. I’m more into her Jerome Dreyfuss Fredo Crossbody Bag. Pick up this similar Jerome Dreyfuss bag for $690 via Net-a-Porter.
In addition to the Jerome Dreyfuss bag, if Kate wants to wear a brown crossbody, she has options. This Ralph Lauren Collection Equestrian Vachetta Saddle Bag, for example. Get one of your own for $1,150 via Ralph Lauren.
Kate’s suede Miu Miu Coffer Bag can also be worn as a crossbody. Shop Miu Miu via Net-a-Porter.
Miu Miu’s girlish aesthetic fits Kate well – this Miu Miu Embellished Madras Flap Bag looks right at home on her arm. Pick up the pink version for $1,150 via Net-a-Porter.
More something a bit lighter, this white Jason Wu Daphne Bag fits the bill. Buy the black version for $1,495 via Nordstrom.
And of course, why carry someone else’s bag when you can carry your own? This JewelMint Metal Minaudiere is from the line designed by Kate and her stylist, Cher Coulter. Shop via JewelMint.com.
Kate has a close friendship with Jack and Lazaro, the design duo behind Proenza Schouler, and that’s reflected in her bag wardrobe. Check out Kate’s lovely Proenza Schouler PS11 Bag. Buy for $1,950 via Proenza Schouler.
Kate’s Proenza Schouler PS1 Large Chain Wallet is the perfect accent to her printed skirt. Buy through $785 via Proenza Schouler.
In fact, Kate seems to be particularly fond of carrying Proenza’s wallets as bags. Here she is in a stunning Stella McCartney gown with a gold Proenza Schouler PS11 Continental Mirror Wallet to match. Buy for $765 via Proenza Schouler.
Kate carries the classic Proenza Schouler PS1 Pochette in basic black to lots of events. Buy for $895 via Proenza Schouler.
Kate got the honor of being the first Hollywood celeb to carry the brand new Proenza Schouler PS13 Satchel. Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $2,495.
Kate is a favorite of the fashion crowd, which means she gets passed choice pieces from emerging designers, like this Rauwolf Gemstone Clutch. Buy the gold version for $1,420 at Barneys.
Like seemingly every Hollywood starlet, Kate has a few Chloe bags in her arsenal, like this Chloe Paraty Tote. Buy through Nordstrom for $1,895.
This Chloe Sally Snakeskin Bag fits Kate’s style to a T. Shop Chloe via Net-a-Porter.
Not all of Kate’s brown bags are crossbodies – this Tom Ford Carine Shoulder Bag is super ladylike. Shop Tom Ford via Neiman Marcus.
Kate also took a sleek, ladylike turn with this Prada Frame Satchel. Shop Prada via Neiman Marcus.
The brand that Bosworth carries more than perhaps any other, though, is Alexander Wang. Naturally, she’s got the fan-favorite Alexander Wang Rocco Duffel in classic black. Buy through ShopBop for $895.
She also has the Alexander Wang Rocco in pale grey for good measure. Buy through ShopBop for $895.
In this instance, Kate’s clutch is actually an Alexander Wang Fumo iPad Case. Buy through Barneys for $365.
We told you Kate’s a fan of neutral crossbody bags – her she is with another Wang classic, the Alexander Wang Diego Bucket Bag. Buy through ShopBop for $850.
On petite Kate, this Alexander Wang Dorothy Hobo looks absolutely enormous. Shop Alexander Wang via ShopBop.
I love the cute summer dress that Kate paired with this Alexander Wang Marti Backpack, worn here converted to a shoulder bag. Buy through ShopBop for $895.
What’s a Wang fangirl without an Alexander Wang Prisma Tote? Buy the black version for $685 via ShopBop.
Lastly, we have the Alexander Wang Small Emile Tote, which fits in well with Kate’s dark, modern ensemble. Buy the ivory version for $895 via Bergdorf Goodman.
