We're thinking back to that moment in Bling Empire when super rich fashion darling Jaime Xie was sitting by a campfire, telling a shaman that she couldn't decide between a nude or mist-colored Bottega Veneta pouch bag. Her friends burst out laughing—they had commissioned the shaman to spiritually cleanse them of indecisiveness, and here was Jaime mulling over bags during what was supposed to be a heartfelt moment.
You know what? Color does matter— a lot. Heart Evangelista already schooled us on how luxury pieces are investments, and while luxury shopping isn't for everyone, those who collect designer bags know how important it is to go with the piece you really want. And, of course, one of the top concerns is bagging the right shade.
Need a bit of insight on which color's hot on the radar? Preview got the chance to talk to Kamille of My Goodies for Less, a personal shopper who's sourced items for the likes of Heart Evangelista, Isabelle Daza, Jinkee Pacquiao, and more. According to her, the most coveted color these days is tan or caramel. She muses that this might be a result of the pandemic: Fashion aficionados are becoming more laid back, and now prefer practical pieces that can easily be styled across all seasons. No complaints here!
Below, we've listed the most popular tan-colored bags, courtesy of Kamille. Take a look:
1. Celine Triomphe
The gold metal hardware against the tan calfskin is classic, the whole piece is just so stylable. It's so easy to see why this crossbody bag is a client favorite. Name something that won't go well with this. We'll wait.
2. Chanel 21P Caramel Classic Flap
Bagaholics are on the hunt for this little flap bag from Chanel, which has been marketed as an exclusive, limited-production item. It comes in beige, too, but the caramel shade really does hit diferently. If we had this bag, we'd start wearing a lot more white-on-white OOTDs to let this accessory take center stage.
3. Dior Bobby
An adorable tribute to Christian Dior's pet Bobby, this bag comes in three sizes. Thanks to the detachable strap, you can handcarry the smallest size as you would a clutch. On the other hand, if you've never gotten along with baguette bags, opt for the Bobby in large!
4. Louis Vuitton Pont
"Pont" is French for bridge. How apt for a bag whose flawless design bridges dreams and reality. If you've never had a must-purchase satchel before, we bet you have one now.
