Gucci Embroidered Small Shoulder Bag (at Gucci for $1,980)
I’ve been celebrating the Year of the Dog for the past month, as customary in Chinese culture (we love any excuse to eat, drink and be merry!). And though my liver has had enough, I am still in a celebratory mood! So I decided to dedicate my latest Vogue China column to the friendliest and most popular of all Chinese Zodiac signs (I mean seriously, who doesn’t love puppies?! No offense to Year of Rat lol) and the bags you’ll need for the year. From bright reds (to bring you fortune) and florals (for love), you can rest assured you’ll be basking in good luck with these bags swinging from your arms!
Bottega Veneta Mini Piazza Bag (at Bottega Veneta for $2,400) I don’t know about you but the I love dangling charms on my bags! A classic Bottega gets lively with this adorable pup charm!
Chanel Lambskin Flap Bag (at Chanel for $4,500) You can’t ever go wrong with a Chanel bag, let alone a red one in chevron stripes.
Delvaux Cool Box is the latest addition to the first fine leather goods maison in the world. Established in 1829 (a year before the Kingdom of Belgium!) available at Delvaux’s uncompromising craftsmanship with modern design is a favorite of fashion insiders. I’m obsessed with the Cool box, a laid back easy to tote daily bag. Add a tribal fringe strap for a pop of trendy fun.
Gucci Embroidered Small Shoulder Bag (at Gucci for $1,980) Sadly, the kitty did not make it in Chinese Astrology but that doesn’t stop me from loving this adorable Gucci bag!
Marc Jacobs Small Snapshot Bag (at SSENSE for $285), Chain Link Bag Strap (at SSENSE for $85) I love Marc’s snapshot bags! Hip and cool plus easy to throw on for work or play. They’re especially good during summer travels. You need to collect them in all the colors, I do!
Stuart Weitzman python tote. Your go-to footwear brand now has covetable bags to go with your favorite shoes. I kept a change of clothes, shoes and necessities in this electric blue tote everywhere in my car during NYFW. It’s lightweight and collapsible- total dream if you ask me!
Tory Burch Kira Iris Appliqué Leather Crossbody Bag (at Nordstrom for $498) Love the gorgeous floral leather appliqués on Tory Burch’s latest arm candy. A must for spring to get us out of the dreary winter mood.
Valentino Garavani Rockstud Spike Metallic Medium Shoulder Bag (at Neiman Marcus for $2,845) The rockstud is back in a major way, the clear lucite version with red pouch feels fresh and current.
Valentino Garavani Rockstud Spike.IT Small Chain Shoulder Bag (available for pre-order at Valentino for $3,575) Possibly the most delicate beautiful Rockstud bag ever made. This size is my favorite cross-body right now!
Valentino Garavani Carry Secrets Leather Heart Minaudiere Bag (at Neiman Marcus for $2,675) Thanks to Valentino, you can literally carry your heart on your sleeve! Yes, Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy carried it recently but that just means she has excellent taste.
