Most handbags, even popular ones, match to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of style. Some skew older or younger, or to creative type or those with high-powered office jobs. Bags are functional pieces of design, after all, and different design is appropriate for different people with different kinds of lives.
Celebs at home and abroad dragged out their favorite Gucci bags last week, whether they were hot off the runway or several seasons old. Gucci is enjoying massive success with its latest lines of shoes and handbags, and we have to wonder which storied fashion house will have this sort of mini-renaissance next.
It’s late February, so of course that means it’s time for Los Angeles celebrities to bust out the barely-there denim. It’s basically a seasonal rite of passage. I jest, of course–this seems a tad early for short shorts, even by LA standards, but that’s certainly this week’s most notable trend, right behind giant black designer totes.
For months, I have labored under the impression that The Nice Guy was a late night hang-out for celebs, and while that’s not entirely untrue (they have a special “late night” menu, an impressive drinks menu, and a exceptional whiskey menu), it may shock you to find that The Nice Guy is actually a restaurant first.
We’re well into the first week of January, and odds are that a decent proportion of you are trying to recommit yourself to a fitness routine in the new year. After a fairly sedentary December full of parties, heavy food and copious alcohol, we can’t really blame you–the idea of some green vegetables and a walk around the block sounds downright pleasant right now.
Platform sandals are back,and they are taking off rather quickly, so bear that in mind as you make your post-holiday shoe purchases. Charlotte Olympia has already taken a quick lead on the platform front, and one of her latest styles is a huge hit with celebs this week (as well as with yours truly.) In other news, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out today, and whether that excites you or not, the movie’s LA premiere has provided us with some of our best shoes of the week; I imagine the subsequent international Star Wars premieres will continue to deliver on both the bag and shoe front.
There are two categories of celebrities we cover here at PurseBlog: celebrities who occasionally carry nice bags by virtue of being rich and well-connected and celebrities who are just like us. They’re the ones who hoard Birkins like they may one day be banned from Hermès boutiques and who actually seem to buy bags instead of just carrying whatever brands sends to their publicists.
