It’s bag heaven Monday, the one day of the week totally dedicated to all things bag-related, and today I would love to introduce the new status bags currently making waves on the arms of celebrities and the shelves of designer boutiques. These ‘it’ bags are truly the bags to have or behold. As described by WhoWhatWear.com, ‘they share the same marks of exclusivity with Birkin Bags, from celebrity fan base, to waiting list‘ and yes a price tag that rivals that of a one-bedroom apartment rental in Paris. Curious to meet them, see below and let me know what you think…Bisous
1. Chloe Baylee: Creative Director Clare Waight Keller describes the tote as “simple” and “chic”, but there’s still plenty details to catch the eye, including the two-tone body and sturdy gold hardware.
2. Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag: The name on every accessories editor’s lips this past season? Mansur Gavriel. The new leather goods line forgoes flashy hardware in favor of clean lines, quality Italian leather, and just the right pop of color. While all the designs enjoy hit status, the bucket bag is the real blockbuster of the group.
3. Givency Antigona: Unlike the other bags on this list, the Antigona didn’t make its debut this year. Still, as a constant on the wrists of every A-lister from Beyonce to Madonna, we’d be remiss not to include the sleek and structured tote.
5. Saint Laurent Sac de Jour: Though it bears a faint resemblance to a certain Hermes classic, Saint Laurent’s Sac de Jour (or “bag of the day”) is the anti-It bag with its discreet logo and minimalist details. Designed by Hedi Slimane, the bag debuted last fall but will be part of Saint Laurent’s permanent collection.
