The bag that made Chanel mainstream – the Chanel 2.55 Flap Bag. In this case, it’s actually the 2.55 Reissue Flap Bag. What makes this bag such a good buy is because it’s a combination of classic and unique. After all, this is the shape that launched a thousand fashion blogs. Everyone loves the beautiful shoulder chain and the quilted pattern of the exterior. What makes it a little different is the fact that its not leather. Its made of soft jersey which gives it a soft, matte and cuddly look. The jersey fabric doesn’t make it look any less luxurious. It just makes it stand out from most other flap bags.
Remember the studded Alexander Wang bag? If you haven’t got one yet because you thought it would fade away like fad, it’s not too late. That’s what so great about It bags. The top five bags that have had a huge celebrity following aren’t going to fall out of favor any time soon. Bags like the Birkin, Chanel flap bag, Celine Luggage, Proenza Schouler Satchel and Alexander Wang bag are all carefully designed to have both glamorous looks and high utility. That means they can be used anytime, anywhere, with any kind of outfit and the high quality design keeps them from looking used or falling apart. This studded satchel in particular is owned by almost every celeb on the planet. Here, Nicky carries the gray one but the black is infinitely popular as well.
If contemporary fashion trends a la Kardashian aren’t your style, follow one of this generation’s rock icons instead. We don’t see very many Dolce & Gabbana bags being showcased in street style but Florence Welch of Florence And The Machine makes a good case of how it’s done. She pieced together a look comprising of a flowing, floral print dress, retro chunky heels in maroon and this snakeskin Dolce bag. It’s called the Miss Sicily bag (Dolce is an Italian brand and Sicily is a beautiful city in the gorgeous country) and it’s python print. Couldn’t get more rock n roll if it tried.
Miranda Kerr has a love for primary colors and is often spotted with bags which are red or blue. This time, it’s the blue Valentino Rockstud Shopper Tote Bag. Her bags can’t be too heavy because she needs to be able to carry her baby boy on the other arm. So while the Valentino shopper is leather, it must be lightweight. Her cute shoes are the Chloe ‘Suzanna’ studded boots, which match the studded bag. The Valentino Rockstud tote bag is also available a smaller size for those who want it to look more like a purse and less like a carry-all.
It’s an unwritten rule that every celebrity needs to be spotted regularly at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, California. That’s where Julianne Hough was seen with this super cute Chloe bag from the Fall/Winter 2012 collection. The cream-colored perfectly complemented the darker hues of her outfit, which were blacks and army green. The pristine white bag is actually the Chloe Sally Python bag. The snakeskin leather keeps it looking edgy even though the color is so preppy and sophisticated. It has a chain handle on the shoulder strap. The frame and hardware are golden. If you’re not into reptile prints, you can also get it in Calfskin and Ayers.
Miley Cyrus was recently seen out and about in London. The young starlet is eager to show off her new look and her entirely redesigned persona to go with it. Her new style is very hip hop, glamorous and young money. Her casual duds were offset by her Celine Gold Box Bag, a revamped version of the Silver Chrome bag from the Winter 2012 collection. Winter is all about silver and summer was made for gold, so the bag is a perfect accessory. Her Gold Chrome Sunglasses were set to match.
