Prada is the Latest Brand to Court the Affections of Cat Ladies

Other Brands

Prada Mink Fur Cat Pochette

Prada’s handbags tend to be overwhelmingly staid; the brand has positioned itself, season after season, as the source for work-appropriate power bags for women with corner offices (or corner office aspirations), and although Miuccia allows for an artistic departure here and there, whimsy is usually not her stock in trade. With that in mind, I have no explanation for the Prada Mink Fur Cat Pochette.

Kitschy, literal bags are a huge trend right now (as is weirdness in general, and as are cats), and Prada will bow to pretty much any accessories trend that becomes strong enough, even if it isn’t totally on brand. (Gotta sell bags, after all.) This cat’s jeweled eyes and nose relate the clutch back to Prada’s visual signatures for accessories, but other than that, it just doesn’t feel like much of a Prada bag; if you had told me it was Charlotte Olympia, I’d have believed you without question, and that’s a brand with which Prada’s general aesthetic just doesn’t overlap. That’s not necessarily a complaint–the bag is super cute.

Prada’s previous ventures into literalness that haven’t been either purely artistic or plainly political have generally involved very small accessories, like teddy bear bag charms. As much as I love Prada’s general handbag aesthetic, it’s never bad to see a brand have a little bit of fun. Apparently, I’m not alone in this approval – the bag sold out at Bergdorf Goodman in a matter of days.

Chloe Grace Moretz is the Latest Celeb With the Chanel Graffiti Backpack

Chloe Grace Moretz Chanel Graffiti Backpack

Here’s actress Chloe Grace Moretz, leaving her hotel in NYC at 5 a.m., carrying a Chanel Graffiti Backpack. We suspect Chloe’s heading toward the airport–she’s been in town for a few days doing press for her new flick If I Stay. The Chanel Graffiti Backpack looks far more appropriate on Chloe than most celebs, because…well, because she’s actually a teenager. A teenager with extremely high-end taste (here she is carrying a Chanel Mini Classic Flap to her Sweet 16 b-day party), but a teenager, nonetheless.

The Chanel Graffiti Backpack is definitely a celeb fave for air travel. We saw several stars toting it in LAX when we investigated the airport’s finest handbags. This backpack has been around for several months now, so do you feel you’re warming up to it, or will the graffiti backpack trend always be a bit of a stretch for actual adults?

Best Bet: Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel

Other Brands

Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel

I’m always on the lookout for bags that look more expensive than they are. That can be a hard thing to pull off, with ever-rising leather prices and executive boards that expect high margin percentages, so when it happens, it makes my day. If you’re looking for a solid work bag that looks professional and sophisticated without a price tag higher than your monthly rent, look no further than the Kate Spade Alice Street Adriana Satchel.

They key to this bag’s expensive look is how sharp it is. It’s got plenty of structure, uncluttered lines and a color combination that accents its shape while leaving it totally work-appropriate, even in an extremely conservative office environment. It’s capped off with just enough gleaming silver hardware, including a front lock that’s reminiscent of closures commonly seen on both Louis Vuitton and Prada bags, which goes a long way toward elevating it into expensive-looking territory.

If the old adage about the wisdom dressing for the job you want and not the one you have has any truth to it, this bag is exactly the kind of thing that a recent grad with her first office job needs on her arm. It wouldn’t be too shabby for a not-so-recent grad, either.

Rachel Bilson Looks Casual With an Alexander Wang Bag

Rachel Bilson Alexander Wang Rockie Bag

Here’s actress Rachel Bilson, running errands in Los Angeles, carrying a natural leather Alexander Wang Rockie Bag, which is the little sister of the original Rocco. You can find a Rockie in beige lambskin for $825 at Barneys. (And just in case you’re worried, the Rocco has by no means been retired. There are still plenty of Roccos up for grabs at Barneys and elsewhere.)

If you’re wondering if Rachel is dressing for two, the answer is YES. Rachel is expecting a wee babe with her fiancé, actor Hayden Christensen. This will be the first celebrity tot for both. Rachel is also busy filming season four of her hit CW show Hart of Dixie. If you’d like to tour the rest of Rachel’s designer handbag collection (Amanda describes it as “absolutely sick”), you can do so in “The Many Bags of Rachel Bilson.”
