I looked around and ended up seeing a few items I really loved from Bottega Veneta, and then a couple turned to five, which turned to eight. Focusing on evening bags and small bags, these are eight bags Bottega Veneta has right now that are worth a look.
We've already spent a bit of time documenting Hilary's full collection, but today I'd like to shed a little proverbial ink on the brand that seems to be her favorite: Chanel. Her tastes stick almost exclusively to the brand's vaunted flap bags, but she seems to love the Classic Flap and Boy Bag equally; she has multiples of both and has carried them all time and again over the years. Curiously, she seems to have no love for the Reissue Flap.
I¡¯ve been drawn to the Chanel Boy Bag since its release in 2011, and I¡¯ve found plenty of Boy renditions that I would have loved to add to my closet. When I saw the Chanel Iridescent Boy Bag, I knew it would be loved by many, myself included.
The white textured leather is paired with ivory shearling and while that combo seems like it could be harsh, it is anything but. The overall dimensions aren¡¯t big and the interior will fit just the essentials ¨C think cell phone, keys and cards. There is a long shoulder strap that allows for crossbody wear and with fall upon us, this little bag will stand out against your autumnal hues. I not only love the style but I love the price! Buy via Net-A-Porter for $235.
If you're a loyal PB reader, you might be able to guess which bag Reese Witherspoon loves enough to buy three of them, even though her handbag collection is vast. (See here and here.) But if you can't, we won't hold it against you. The bag enjoyed a surge of popularity right after its release in the summer of 2014, but it's a classic-looking style that's sure to withstand several seasons to come. Check out that, as well as Kylie Jenner with our favorite Chanel bag of late and more, below.
Check out all the bags and their prices below and let us know what you think in the comments! Remember, you can also shop sunglasses and beauty online at Chanel's website--here's hoping handbags are next.
Here's an extremely excited Behati Prinsloo, greeting the paps in NYC. She's carrying a black leather Balenciaga Cable Bag. I've probably pointed this out before, but I don't love this Balenciaga style, mainly because at first glance, it's easily mistaken for a shopping bag. Your mileage may vary.
Here's Kylie Jenner, splitting from "set" after doing a little filming for KUWTK at an LA yogurt shop. She's carrying a lovely, iridescent green Chanel Boy Bag. This is exactly the kind of laid-back, high-end goth look I try to perfect before I head out for some fro-yo. Just kidding! Fro-yo is gross.
At last, here's Sarah Jessica Parker, leaving her home in the West Village with a woven grey leather Bottega Veneta tote and a Belstaff messenger bag that's been discontinued. For an extensive look at SJP's handbag collection that spans several years, check out The Many Bags of Sarah Jessica Parker and The Many Bags of Sarah Jessica Parker, Part 2.
