Bella Hadid usually prefers vintage accessories, as evidenced by her prized limited-edition Louis Vuitton X Richard Prince top-handle and Prada Militare Tessuto Active Nylon shoulder bag. However, this season, Bella Hadid decided to invest in some of the new, quickly rising-to-cult status, fashions.
Bella has fallen in love with Saint Laurent’s roomy Icare tote, which is a favorite of fellow bag-fluencers like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hailey Bieber, and Angelina Jolie. It joins a variety of Balenciaga accessories, such as the zippy Le Cagole, XX croc-embossed baguette bag, and the spiky Crush bag.
Zoë Kravitz, a Saint Laurent brand ambassador, first made us aware of the life-sized tote when she was seen carrying it for an impromptu photo shoot in April. The casual charm of Zo’s jeans, roll-neck, and heels was enhanced by her arm candy.
Bella displayed a similar air of carelessness when out in New York. She was photographed sporting patterned Jean Paul Gaultier separates from the 2000s, pumped-up marshmallow slides and sunglasses from Givenchy, and a denim jacket peeking out from behind her functional yet chic Icare purse. Expect to see a lot more jumbo totes on the supers in September because they were a major trend that emerged from the autumn/winter 2022 shows.
