Stepping out in New York on last night, Dakota Johnson styled a relaxed handbag style that, the more I looked at it, I was sure I had seen before.
Opting for a large black handbag in a quilted leather fabric from her go-to brand, Gucci, Johnson styled her oversized tote with a longline structured coat and light wash jeans. Adding a practical element to her casual look, Johnson’s quilted bag was large enough to stow away her essentials, but neat enough to retain a polished edge.
Whilst Johnson’s Gucci bag offers heritage design in a new-season silhouette, the cool £2,780 price tag firmly cements it as a luxury buy. And rightly so—Gucci bags have proven themselves to have eternal appeal (the Jackie alone is evidence of this), and if you do decide to invest in the real thing, I know you’ll have it in your wardrobe for a very, very long time. Sadly, my current budget doesn’t stretch that far, which is why I’m considering one of the styles I had previously spotted on the high street.
