Diplomatic Pouch

SS18 I bought the Céline clutch, SS19 the Bottega Veneta — I still love and carry both, but, they are now ubiquitous and imitated (Mansur Gavriel‘s is so similar, blogs often misidentify it as BV). When the A.P.C. x Suzanne Koller collaboration dropped, I was quick to order the navy pouch. It, and the Kendall Conrad Bolsa, became my preferred run-around bags. These, on MFW show-goers, are fab and I’m trying to identify them.

  • Kendall Conrad’s new Khadija pouch is so good! I love the bags above as well.

  • Oooooh, Preston! That RED is perfection. If you do find out who makes it, please post! I’m going down the rabbit hole as well.

    I also have the Celine SS2018 clutch in red and just got the BV in army green, but you’re so right- it feels a tad common now to see them worn everywhere, so I’m thinking of holding off on carrying them. But the pouch, especially in the larger size is very chic. My grandmother always advised wearing a trend a season or even a year after it’s passed, and I think I may do that with the clutch.

  • The red bag is from Attico! Giorgia Tordini’s wearing it with the Prada shoes. Swoon!

  • The pouches by Kendall Conrad and APC are so cool! I am carrying mine tomorrow when I run my errands!

  • The large pouch on LouLou is Victoria Beckham.

  • Preston- I was scrolling on the Hermes website last night and noticed they have a new tote bag called the Bridado backpack. It has that lovely louche quality, and the colors are really beautiful, especially the etoupe. It’s really a pouch that turns into a backpack. It’s on my list now as one to consider, especially since the BV clutch has become so common, so I’m retiring mine until the spring or perhaps next fall. Would love your perspective on this one.

  • The Bridado, sigh…
