Comedienne Alex Gonzaga is best known for her hilarious gimmicks both onscreen and offscreen (her YouTube channel is proof). Well, in case you’ve been too engrossed with her crazy antics, you might have missed her wardrobe, which by the way, is actually brimming with designer goods. You probably remember that Balenciaga cardigan she wore after her engagement with her long-time beau Mikee Morada, or the Fendi slides she wore while third-wheeling with Jake Cuenca and Kylie Verzosa. But today, we’re putting the spotlight on her designer bags. And believe us when we tell you her collection, as seen on Instagram, is very impressive. Scroll down below to find out what her favorites are:
1. Chanel Flap Bag
On a trip to Paris in 2018, Alex didn’t miss the chance to wear her best Chanel bags—it’s only logical to wear these pieces when you’re in their birthplace after all! Of course, when it comes to the fashion house’s handbags, nothing is more iconic than its Flap Bags that feature quilted leather and a chain-woven strap. Here, Alex wears a classic black version with gold hardware. Proof that it’s a bag that not only looks good but functions well for traveling.
2. Chanel Coco Top Handle
While some fashionistas stick to collecting Flap Bags and 2.55’s, Alex tries her hand at more unique designs like Chanel’s top handle bags and backpacks. Here, she sports the brand’s Coco Top Handle Bag, also in black, at the Santa Monica Pier in California. Pairing it with a retro-inspired polka dot dress, Alex proves that Chanel bags are a fine way to elevate your outfit—especially when you throw in gold accessories, too!
3. Givenchy Nightingale Satchel
When Givenchy handbags are a topic of conversation, one of the first designs that comes to mind is the Nightingale Satchel, which many celebrities grew to love. Although it’s the super edgy black version that everyone is obsessed with, there are a few that prefer the lighter-hued colorways, and Alex is one of them. Back in 2018, Alex walked the streets of San Francisco toting her beige Nightingale as a handbag, which sealed her stylish but casual look.
4. Gucci Lady Web Shoulder Bag
By now, you can tell that Alex knows her stuff when it comes to the iconic designs of each fashion brand, so we weren’t surprised when we saw her slew of Gucci bags that mainly featured their signature red-and-green webbed strap. We’re particularly impressed by her Lady Web Shoulder Bag, a divine piece that recalls the house’s '70s glory days, what with the monogrammed canvas trimmed with leather and the horsebit on top of the flap. A great investment if you want a vintage-looking Gucci bag. Nice choice, Alex!
5. Gucci GG Top Handle Bag
Another Gucci gem is Alex’s top handle bag from the Italian brand’s Padlock series. The design features a detachable strap that converts it into a handbag, and that’s exactly what Alex did in this outfit. Sure, wearing bags crossbody is optimal during the day, especially when you’ve got tons to do, but sometimes, toting a top handle has its pros. It can instantly make you look more polished and professional!
6. Gucci Sylvie Shoulder Bag
Alex’s Gucci collection doesn’t end there. Another piece we’re giving her snaps for is the Sylvie Shoulder Bag, known for its boxy shape, gold chain hardware, and web stripe details—it’s basically a design that combines plenty of the house’s signature elements. Although it has been reinterpreted over the years (there are ones with cute bees and stars!), we’re sure you’ll agree that nothing beats a classic, solid-colored piece. A neutral-colored Sylvie, like Alex’s black version, can go with anything in your closet! Plus, it’s an investment that will stand the test of time.
7. Saint Laurent Envelope Chain Flap Bag
It seems that Alex has a penchant for chain details! We can’t blame her, though, as they instantly make any outfit look more expensive. Here, Alex takes in the view from the Harukas 300 Observatory in Osaka, wearing a chill outfit completed with a brown Envelope Chain Flap Bag. Instead of the brand’s Parisian chic colorways like black and red, Alex chose a rich brown hue that can easily transition from day to night. It totally works with the preppy vibe that Alex is going for here!
