For Christy, Kate and Naomi, classic designer handbags still reign supreme
Photographed after the runway, the models diverted attention away from novelty on the runway and squarely on their own wardrobe essentials. Each wore her equivalent of the bag that adapts to your life, the essential essential that every woman has in her wardrobe. For Moss, it was his black HermÃ¨s Birkin, the forever classic that seems beloved after years of sheltering his personalities on trips to fashion capitals and the Cotswolds. Moss owns red, white, and turquoise Birkins, but the slightly washed-out black tote is the one most synonymous with his innate personal style and effortlessly cool.
For Campbell, Saint Laurent’s Manhattan bag brought polish to his downtime look, which was founded by a pair of Air Jordans – the sneakers Jones famous for giving it its own twist. The boxy tote bag featuring a sleek top handle features gold hardware and compression tabs, which accentuate the metallic buckles of Campbell’s leather biker jacket. It was the perfect feminine accessory to add to the model’s high-low mix.
A shiny blue version of Chanel’s Flap bag brought together everyday essentials from Turlington. The denim-effect version of a brand’s signature always looked stylish, but full of personality – perfect for a friend of the house who saw many iterations of Chanel’s quilted shoulder bags in her day. When it comes to making your next investment bag purchase, all fashion roads lead to supers.
