Bag Bugs have left a lasting impression on the industry
We're experiencing an infestation of hairy poufs, and celebs are among the most afflicted. Perhaps Karl Lagerfeld bestowed X-mas gifts upon his celeb favorites a little early this year. Fendi Bag Bugs are suddenly everywhere, and there's also a fair amount of Bag Bug-esque accents making their way into bag designs all of a sudden. None of this is a coincidence, certainly, but it did very much take me by surprise this week.
Bella Hadid brought this black Bulgari Serpenti Top Handle Bag to a Victoria Secret Fashion Show viewing party in NYC, but of course, her bodycon red leather dress may have garnered more attention. The show finally aired last Tuesday.
Elsa Hosk's mystery bag is a real puzzler: It's pink, it's fuzzy, it's shaped a lot like the Gabriela Hearst Nina. What is it? It has a real Fendi or Miu Miu vibe, but we can't confirm it's either.
Note the date and time: We've seen thousands of mini bags in the last 5 years, but this one is the most functionally useless by far. Gigi Hadid carried this Furla Micro Metropolis Bag to dinner at Nobu in Manhattan. It looks like it can hold exactly two lipsticks. Shop the Furla Metropolis Bag via farfetch.com ($378)
Here's model Jasmine Sanders, attending a party in LA with her boyfriend. She's carrying a Les Petits Joueurs Mini Alex Bag, and the pink pouf is actually part of the design. It's not a Bag Bug. Shop the Les Petits Joueurs Mini Alex Bag via Neiman Marcus ($547)
Here's Khloé Kardashian, trying to covertly make a break for the door at LAX once again with her olive green Birkin.
Margot Robbie carried this fetching black Prada Corsaire Bag (accented with a big honkin' Bag Bug of course) while doing press for her new movie in NYC. Are you guys excited for this Tonya Harding biopic? I know I am. Shop the Prada Corsaire Bag via Neiman Marcus ($2,220)
Here's Olivia Culpo, enjoying a casual stroll in West Hollywood with a red, croc-embossed Saint Laurent Sac de Jour. I enjoy the woman next to her gleefully taking photos of the paparazzi. Shop the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Bag via farfetch.com ($2,890)
Finally, here's Rihanna exiting JFK with one of her 2017 faves: this Dior Saddle Bag.
