Seo Ji Hye may have shocked us with a "CLOY comeback" when she dressed like Seo Dan in Dinner Mate, but her current character, Woo Do Hee, is a fashion icon in her own right, despite the differences in their sense of style. As opposed to Seo Dan’s posh dresses, Do Hee favors more casual pieces that aren’t short of eclectic—she loves cocoon cardigans and oversized blazers in hip prints like tartan and leopard. Plus, she’s also a fan of layering!
However, these two fashionistas do have something in common: They both love designer bags! To suit her on-the-go lifestyle and her fun aesthetic (Woo is a creative content creator by occupation!), she opts for small purses like camera bags, crossbody bags, and bucket bags. Here, we list down some of our favorite pieces from the show that proves that Seo Dan isn’t the only one with good taste in designer goods!
Tod’s Crossbody in Leather Mini

Here, Do Hee brightens up a gray blazer with an elegant crossbody bag from Tod’s. The creamy white piece features a magnetic flap closure, roomy space, and detachable shoulder strap, making it a great choice for everyday outfits. In line with the brand’s thrust for quality craftsmanship, the leather features hand-dyed trims central stitching.
Bottega Veneta Padded Cassette Bag
Padded Cassette Bag in Topazio, $2800 (P140,179.20), BOTTEGA VENETA, bottegaveneta.com
Do Hee sure isn’t behind on trends, and this is proof! Bottega Veneta’s leather goods (from bags to shoes!) reached “It” status since Daniel Lee took helm of the Italian brand, and one of those designs is the Padded Cassette Bag. It turns out that Do Hee copped her own piece in Topazio. The Cassette Bag is made with calf leather with a soft nappa interior, The “maxi weave” pattern is distinctly BV.
Loewe Lazo Bucket Bag in Natural Calfskin
Lazo Bucket Bag In Natural Calfskin (Dark Taupe), P73,920, LOEWE, loewe.com
If you think that small structured bags (like camera bags and box bags) are the most practical design for daywear, then you haven’t seen roomy bucket bags like this fine piece from Loewe. Made with natural calfskin, the Lazo is marked by its soft, elegant lines, leather closure panel, and spacious interior lined with suede. We love how Do Hee used it to dress down a sleek suit jacket!
Mulberry Belted Bayswater Satchel
Deep Amber Small Printed Grain, £895 (P55,489.37), MULBERRY, mulberry.com
Do Hee elevates a super casual layered look (we love how she added that baggy hoodie!) with a luxury leather bag from Mulberry. Characterized by its box shape and three-gusset body, this Bayswater Satchel takes inspiration from the eponymous handbag featuring the brand’s iconic postman’s lock. The bag’s bright amber hue looked smashing against the muted camo green and navy blue colors of her outfit—a color combo you should take note of!
Givenchy Medium Antigona Soft Bag in Smooth Leather
Medium Antigona Soft Bag in Smooth Leather, P123,000, GIVENCHY, givenchy.com
It’s obvious that Do Hee has a penchant for modern bag silhouettes from classic designer brands, and here’s another piece of evidence! She has her very own Antigona Soft Bag from Givenchy, which, as the name suggests, is a more relaxed take on the brand’s iconic Antigona, which is known for its sharp lines and geometric body. Instead of the typical black colorway, Do Hee opts for a slate gray hue that accentuates the design’s lithe character.
