Street style photos of off-duty models and papped celebrities have long been page fodder for an endless amount of magazines, newspapers, and tabloids. But even better than reading about the salacious scandals that plague people of note, are the style credits, outlining the hottest fashion items modeled by celebrities and style stars.
It’s the bag that makes the look.
Those looking to recreate their style will find that they have enough fashion staples in their clothing wardrobe to approximate the look, but will struggle with finding an alternative bag for a polished ensemble.
Luxury handbags are strong pieces that can upgrade any outfit from boring and basic to posh and put together. There’s a reason why a high street look alike simply won’t make the cut—you can’t mass manufacture the class and quality of 100 years of craftsmanship. But a four-figure price tag isn’t exactly friendly and the number of luxury handbags we lust over run aplenty.
Unlock access to the genuine article at 5-10% of its retail cost by subscribing rather than purchasing. Paying for access, rather than ownership opens the door to massive flexibility: a new luxury handbag every month (rather than every other year) now becomes a distinct possibility. It also allows you to spring for bags you otherwise never would have bought because you were too worried about maximising your cost per wear.
