The Many Bags of Khloe Kardashian

There are few more controversial figures in American pop culture than the Kardashians, and they’re controversial in exactly the ways that make for excellent bag-spotting. Extravagant, conspicuous, exhibitionistic – the Kardashians have a lot of stuff, and they’d like to show it to you. That makes Khloe Kardashian a perfect candidate for our weekly handbag examination. Sister Kim had the biggest collection we’ve ever documented, but Khloe does a pretty good job of accumulating luxury handbags in her own right, including a colorful array of Birkins.

The Many Bags of Katie Holmes

The-Many-Bags-of-Katie-Holmes

Before two weeks ago, I never had all that many thoughts about Katie Holmes. She’s beautiful, of course, and she seems extremely devoted to little Suri, who looks more and more like her Mini Me every day. A couple of months ago, I got caught in a Katie/Suri paparazzi scrum on my walk home from the grocery store, and it seemed to me at the time that living that kind of life must be very isolating, perhaps even dreadfully lonely. I didn’t fret about it for long, though; it’s hard to feel too much sympathy for the young, beautiful and incredibly wealthy.

And then, about two weeks ago, Katie Holmes staged a divorce-filing sneak attack full of the sort ballsy genius of which I had never previously assumed her capable. She came out with her metaphorical guns blazing against a husband that’s much more well-established and powerful than she is within their industry, and that’s no small thing. Not only that, but whatever dirt she had on noted crazyperson Tom Cruise must be insane if the prospect if it coming to light panicked his legal team so much that less than two weeks after filing, Katie has her requests met, her divorce papers signed, and her daughter safe in her care in New York. We doff our hats to the take-no-prisoners way she’s handled what could have been a mud-slinging mess while still getting her independence in a timely manner, and for that, we’d like to offer Ms. Holmes the greatest tribute we can provide in these parts: a look through her handbag collection, both past and present.

Let’s start with the present. In the time since her divorce was announced, Katie has been spotted everywhere carrying a simple woven leather tote bag with few, if any, distinguishing marks. The frayed edges and woven pattern indicate that it’s a Henry Beguelin Tote, but the pared-down look is something Katie’s come to embrace in the last year or so. You can shop Henry Beguelin via Neiman Marcus.

Cate Blanchett Doubles Up with Roger Vivier and Givenchy Bags

Cate Blanchett Roger Vivier Prismick Shoulder Bag Givenchy Lucrezia Satchel

Cate Blanchett was recently spotted heading to the theater in Manhattan for her matinee performance of The Maids. She’s carrying both a quilted, burgundy red Roger Vivier Prismick Shoulder Bag, which is a new-for-fall variation on one of the brand’s classic bags, and a taupe Givenchy Lucrezia Satchel. The aptly named Prismick is currently available in blue for $2,820 at MyTheresa.com. A new wine-colored version of the Lucrezia is also available for pre-order for$2,490 at Bergdorf Goodman.

Cate is extremely fond of Roger Vivier’s Prismick; we saw her with a two-tone black and white version of this bag in NYC last year. Frankly, I’m surprised we don’t see more celebs carrying this elegant design. In other news, I’m getting the distinct impression that jumpsuits are going to be really hot for fall amongst the NYC celeb set. (See also: Maggie Gyllenhaal.)

The Best Bag Deals for the Weekend of August 15

Bag Deals August 15

I’m not venturing much when I say that some people like neutral bags, while others prefer color. (Print people: we also have a bag for you.) During most times of the year, one variety of bag is far easier to find than others, but during this time of fall transition, you can find pretty much any color you’d like, from bright turquoise to graphite. In this week’s edition of Bag Deals, we have a little bit of both.

The Many Bags of Taylor Swift, Part 2

Other Brands

The Many Bags of Taylor Swift Part 2

In some ways, it seems like Taylor Swift has been daring me to write a second investigation into her handbag collection all summer. Every day when I open our photo agency’s archives, there are new photos of her walking to and fro in New York City, enjoying her morning constitutional, her evening constitutional and sometimes several constitutionals in between, generally wearing a two-piece matching outfit and a handbag dangling from her forearm. To me, her intentions are clear.

Even if you don’t believe that Taylor Swift is trying to surreptitiously communicate with me through the paparazzi, taking a look through her quirky handbag collection is an interesting study in celebrity branding. Instead of carrying things that others have decided are popular or of-the-moment, Swift sticks to less recognizable options from both major brands and independent designers alike. The result is that she always looks like herself instead of looking like an It Bag billboard, just like the last time we took a look at her handbag habits in 2014.

Ferragamo FW14 Runway Collection Digital Trunk Show Bagjpg

Ferragamo is riding a heat wave at the moment. The brand struck handbag gold with its latest major push, the Fiamma, and followed it up by enticing its fans with an online film series and now a digital trunk show.

For its Fall 2014 collection, Salvatore Ferragamo tapped Alexandra Richards, Leigh Lezark, Genevieve Jones and Princess Melusine Ruspoli for its campaign. The four ladies were shot on location around New York, and each picked her favorite looks from Massimiliano Giornetti’s fall runway collection.

I already adore Ferragamo bags, but after seeing these photos, I have a new appreciation of all things Ferragamo. Fall will be here before we know it, so start picking out your fall must-haves; you can start by visiting the Ferragamo Digital Trunk Show to swoon over the collection.
