When one thinks of local celebrities who have a penchant for collecting designer bags, it's impossible not to think of Kim Chiu. Her obsession with bags even ultimately led her to establish her own brand, the House of Little Bunny. But while she's a certified Chanel girl, whose wardrobe is often adorned with the French luxury maison’s signature CC monogram, she also has other notable pieces in her collection from various fashion houses.
Ahead, we delve into Kim's designer bag collection, spotlighting some of the most distinguished brands that she showcases in her Instagram OOTDs.
The Most Expensive Designer Brands Kim Chiu Has in Her Bag Collection
Kim Chiu's love for Chanel is no secret. Within her collection, one can find classics like the Chanel 22 that fetches for at least $5,800 or approximately P330,000. For everyday practicality, Kim loves her Quilted Caviar belt bag and the Duma Drawstring Backpack—both stylish and functional companions for her travels.
No designer bag collection would be complete without a touch of Dior. Kim’s collection boasts timeless pieces like the Book Tote (price ranges from $2,900 to $7,200) and the iconic Lady Dior (with the micro version priced at $3,900 or approximately P220,000)—must-haves for any fashion enthusiast and designer bag collector. Additionally, she seems to also favor the Diorcamp bag, displaying her affinity for the brand's diverse offerings.
When it comes to designer bags, Kim appreciates more than just the classics or trends, but also pieces that promise practicality. Case in point: her Medium Backpack with Interlocking G ($2,400 or approx. P136,000). This versatile backpack is a staple companion during her travels, exemplifying her sense of style and utility.
4. Louis Vuitton
Louis Vuitton has evolved from crafting trunks to producing chic, functional bags suitable for everyday use and travel. Their totes in particular are quite popular amongst fashionistas. Kim’s personal favorite, the OnTheGo tote that could fetch for as much as $3,200 or over P180,000, seems to be her go-to for traveling—she loves it so much that she had to get it in two colorways!
While leather holds its own charm, Prada's nylon and raffia bags have become sought-after summer accessories among collectors. The Ruched Hobo bag is one of Kim's everyday faves and can cost as much as
€650 (close to P40,000), while the raffia bucket bag (which costs approximately €1500 or close to P100,000 on reselling sites) has become her ultimate beach accessory.
Known for their bold, statement-making pieces, Balenciaga bags are worthy investments if you’re looking to add some edge to your look. Kim owns the vibrant neon yellow Cagole (worth $1210 or approximately P68,600), the trendy Hourglass bag (with prices between $2000 or approximately P113,387 to $20,000 or approximately P1,133,870 depending on the size), and the Grafitti Souvenir belt bag, showcasing her fearless approach to fashion.
Few bag brands have reached the level of virality that Jacquemus has. Known for their unique, sleek, and colorful designs, Jacquemus bags perfectly capture the style zeitgeist of the 21st century. So it’s no surprise that it’s made its way into Kim’s designer bag collection. Their bags can cost anywhere between $500 (or roughly P28,346) to a whopping $2000 or over P100,000.
Hermès is more than just an accessory, it’s an investment. The reason why their Kelly and Birkin bags are so sought after, aside from their chic and iconic silhouettes, is that their value appreciates consistently year after year, making them exceptional choices for those seeking enduring, long-term financial investments. Kim seems to know this too well, with her bag collection including several Kellys and Birkins rendered in different colors and leathers. A Kelly in 2023 can cost anywhere between $8700 (approx. P493,172) to $12,000 (approx. P680,238), while a Birkin can cost between $10,400 (approx. P589,539) to $11,600 (approx. P657,563) according to Madison Avenue Couture.
