It’s the end of an It Bag era. Late last week, Women’s Wear Daily broke the news that after a dozen years in continuous production, Louis Vuitton would be ending its Monogram Multicolore line for good. The line was the last of the brand’s popular collaborations with artist Takashi Murakami to still be manufactured, and it’ll be gone from stores by the end of July.
I’m unsure of the exact math, but when you have two appearances by Beyoncé in any given blog post, your A-lister cred somehow more than doubles. Today, the handbag picks are especially high-end. There’s plenty of luxe celeb bags from Dior, Hermès and Céline to feast your eyes on this week, as well as some truly eyebrow-raising looks from a few of your favorite celebs.
Bag: Alexander Wang Mini Rockie Satchel

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: Alexander Wang has followed in the footsteps of many brands by again shrinking an already shrunken version of one of his most popular bags, but don’t worry; you can actually fit stuff in this one.
A couple months ago, I reviewed the bags from Fendi’s Resort 2016 lookbook and noted that many of the bags were hanging from thick, wide straps that were unlike those the brand generally includes with its bag. At the end of last week, we learned why: Women’s Wear Daily reports that they’re part of the new Fendi Strap You line, and they’re sold separately.
Regular, non-seasonal Chanel flap bags in basic black can be hard enough to get your hands on, so when it comes to the one-season-only stuff (or, even worse, limited editions), who knows if you’ll ever be able to get your hands on that one special bag you fell in love with from the brand’s runway photos?
