Celebs stepped out with some truly unusual bag choices this week. There were minis galore, fetching marble-effect clutches from Edie Parker, exotic pouchettes from Hermès and a Chloé bag that is certain to give you vivid flashbacks of the mid-aughts.
The gods have heard my cries and celebs have suddenly changed their lifestyle handbag-carrying habits accordingly. The endless sea of Chanel and Hermès bags has suddenly (almost) run dry (can’t speak for next week, though), and celebs are finally choosing to dine somewhere other than the same two West Hollywood eateries!
There were a barrage of Cruise and Resort runway shows over the holiday weekend, and many of our celeb handbag round-up usuals made their way to Rio for Louis Vuitton‘s. Not everyone headed to the runway shows, of course; some celebs stayed in town, shopped at their favorite stores and loafed around their usual haunts, just like I did.
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.
Celebs are over the moon for totes, and they’re carrying everything from ye olde favorites (I mean the Céline Luggage Tote, of course), to gargantuan Hermès bags that threaten to engulf their carriers, to svelte Michael Kors totes that are actually a riff on a Michael Kors style that was immensely popular circa 2014.
