Keep scrolling to see some of the most expensive designer bags KC Concepcion has in her wardrobe:
1. Louis Vuitton Monogram Rolling Luggage
KC loves traveling and it’s no surprise that she bought one of the most recognizable pieces of luggage because of its monogram detail.

2. Louis Vuitton Boite Flacons
If there are two pieces KC could save from her whole collection, it would be her pair of Louis Vuitton designer vanity cases. The classic monogram piece was created in the 1920s and was given to her by her late grandmother, her Mita whom she loves very much. The Damier Azur version was a piece she invested in herself because of her love for travel trunks and box-shaped bags. Perfect for carrying accessories and jewelry, these bags are great because of their functionality and structure.

3. Gucci Linea and Dionysus
KC is a true fan for the artistry and work that comes with every luxury piece. This is why she’s invested in three different Gucci designer bags that are hand painted. The first is a Linea P Butterfly Painted Leather and Genuine Snakeskin Top Handle Satchel and the other is the Dionysus in periwinkle. KC also owns another Dionysus bag in black with the same bamboo top handle.

7. Celine Tri-Color Python Micro Luggage Tote
Fun Fact: KC was gifted a pet ball python snake by Kuya Kim Atienza and she named it Coco. As she continued to take care of it, she couldn’t help but fall in love. After this experience, she did not have it in her to buy any more designer bags made of python leather. Her work with WWF made her realize that she should love luxury responsibly.
