Do celebs intentionally take advantage of bigger holiday shopping crowds to step out and get some shopping done while feeling normal? I’ve never given much thought to this before, but we’ve seen more celeb snapshots from outside Barneys and inside popular LA shopping hot spots like The Grove this month than we have all year.
Here’s a fun thing about keeping track of celebrity bag and fashion trends: as soon as you feel you can definitively say “CELEBS ARE DOING THIS!” they’re already doing something else, and they probably started doing it three days ago.
Celebs are once again going back to the (luxury) basics, with solid black leather bags from Chanel (so much Chanel), Hermès and all of your favorite stalwart luxury brands. There’s nothing terribly trendy here; in fact, I don’t think there’s even anything that’s new for 2015, but there are plenty of reminders as to why the big-name brands are generally worth their salt.
Some celebs seem to have a new handbag on their arms every time we turn around, but most of them are just like you and me: they play favorites, get into grooves with particular bags and sometimes just don’t feel like switching their stuff out for another option.
Even though a woman’s handbag selection isn’t necessarily dependent on temperature, the change of the seasons is still an optimal time to think about adding a new bag to your wardrobe. The shift toward fall-appropriate colors and textures fits particularly perfectly with the rich hues and luxury leathers of the bags Christie’s has carefully selected for its October Handbags & Accessories Auction, happening now.
Once the air turns crisp, everyone gets excited to pull out their old fall favorites (or stock up on new fall favorites), and apparently this sort of seasonal nostalgia extends to Céline bags. Just think, in mere months our photo service will be awash in bare-legged, sandal-wearing celebrities in the snow.
If you had as much money as reality star-turned-model Kendall Jenner, what would your handbag closet look like? (If you’ve found your way here, I’m taking it as a given that you’d have a dedicated handbag closet.) Would it be diverse?
If you’ve been contemplating the purchase of a Céline bag for fall, we have some information you’re going to want to consider while you plot. We just got ahold of the brand’s Winter 2015 lookbook (which, confusingly, is the group of bags debuting with what the industry generally refers to as “fall” collections), and we’ve got all the images below, plus pricing for each bag.
Celebrities blitzed through airports all over the world this week with designer bags that demanded our attention. Natural leathers, python and primary colors seem to be particularly in this week, and there are a few especially gorgeous classics in today’s roundup that you definitely shouldn’t miss.
