Jinkee Pacquiao is no one-trick pony. Yes, she may be the proud, posh owner of a vast Hermès collection that represents every color and finish in creation, but she's definitely not a brand snob! Here, read about the other non-Birkin-slash-Kelly-slash-Constance designer bags she really, really loves just as much.
1. Chloe C Bag
Chloé's Natacha Ramsay-Levi designs some of the most coveted bags on the market, and the mini C is just one example. Jinkee's in particular was, according to its official product description, crafted in Italy from smooth and animal-effect leather in a versatile, decadent triple color combo—an easy fave among its vast host of bold hues. Raspberries and chocolate topped with the label's polished gold hardware? Yes, please. Transform it from a dainty top handle to a cute little crossbody with the optional shoulder strap.
2. Dior 30 Montaigne
Here's a total modern classic. Admit it: You were enthralled by the veritable outfit post avalanche that announced the Dior 30 Montaigne's explosive entry into the style scene. Unforgettably heralded by literally hundreds of the 'gram's best dressed posting simultaneously-uploaded OOTD snaps dangling it on the crooks of their bling-decked arms, it was completely overwhelming...and, naturally, we thrived in the overload. Just fashion girl things. In case you didn't already know, the 3M is loving tribute to the brand’s iconic and emblematic flagship address in Paris! We suggest you pick it up in a sleek, sensible mood, 'cause though monogram mania may fade in the coming years as it did in the naughty noughties, we definitely see Jinkee's quieter choice aging gracefully sans the snoozefest.
3. Gabriela Hearst Nina
Ah, a contemporary minimalist icon. Subdued yet easily identifiable (and widely copied), the Nina is named for artist and activist Nina Simone. It's the first, flagship handbag in the Gabriela Hearst collection is a structured top handle with a distinctive round pouch that gently unfolds from a turnlock closure, as is lovingly made from smooth, supple Italian Nappa leather.
4. Dior Book Tote
This one's perhaps the youngest, currently most popular pick of the bunch. We've already called that this'll be the next notch on your wish list, and you've got the backing of these equally smitten girls. Introduced on the brand’s Spring-Summer 2018 runway, creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri immersed herself in the house's legendary archives to find inspiration from a drawing produced by Marc Bohan in 1967 to create the Dior Book Tote. Heritage meets function.
5. Chanel Le Boy Vertical
Oh, but this ain't your regular ol' Le Boy. Introduced in Cruise 2019, the maison has decided to serve up a cool, fresh shape shift of one of their most enduring, beloved styles: Tell us you noticed that, unlike its original iteration, Jinkee's Boy is stretched vertically! Let your eyes adjust, then wholeheartedly appreciate its youthful take on the original boxy structure. Call this, perhaps, the Gen-Z update to your mom's fave Chanel permanent-liner. Who knew a tiny adjustment could be so ingenious? It's safe to say that we're certified fans.
6. Carolina Herrera Initials Insignia
A single deft scroll through celebrity Instagram is all you need to confirm that the ubiquitous Carolina Herrera Initials Insignia definitely sits with the popular crowd. Versatile, beyond posh, and eager to be yours in a thrilling myriad of colors, it's quite possibly the brand's most indentifiable leather purse, introduced in 2017 to mark the namesake Venezuelan label's 35th anniversary. This young icon's just the right mix of statement and subtle. We also like that you're spoilt rotten for choice when it comes to straps: The sporty web striped fabric is great for pared down days, while the sleek matching leather option polishes up.
7. Louis Vuitton Boite Chapeau
Known for (literally) getting around, the Louis Vuitton Boite Chapeau is pretty popular—locally, stars like Kim Jones and Nicole Andersson have been spotted dangling it from the crooks of their ever-candied arms. The handbag reimagines a classic, old-world hat box in supple, signature Monogram canvas, Released on the Fall-Winter 2018 runway. Nicolas Ghesquière's reinterpretation of this iconic style nods to Louis Vuitton's rich travel heritage. The versatile piece features a long leather strap which can be worn over the shoulder or across the body.
8. Dior Saddle
Jinkee obviously can't ger enough of delightful Dior. Often preferred in the classic, immensely popular navy Oblique canvas, it was famously first catapulted to undoubted It status by Sex and the City's feisty Carrie Bradshaw, a fun fashion fact you may have heard before. It's one worth constantly retelling, to be completely honest. Well, her now-historic Saddle has certainly gotten a modern makeover that's beloved by a whole new generation of style stars, propelling its glorious renaissance towards a hipper, savvier set eager to get those Ds. Jinkee's, for a nice bit of contrast, was chosen in a tasteful, plain powder blue.
