Does anyone love Bottega Veneta as much as Hailey Bieber? Evidence to the contrary is proving hard to come by, as the model continues to step out in new-season pieces designed by Daniel Lee. There was the $13,000 egg yolk shearling jacket and the zebra print chain bag in October; now, she’s forked out on a new leather pouch bag and new-season tan coat.

Stepping out in rainy New York City yesterday, Bieber wore leather trousers, New Balance sneakers, a cream sweater, and a single-breasted Bottega Veneta coat. The coat—which is still only available for pre-order for us mere mortals—retails for a cool $3,560. Made with 100% wool and finished in a forever-classic sand shade, the coat was a standout piece from the brand’s Resort ’21 collection, which was modelled by Selena Forrest back in May.

Bieber topped the outfit off with a new-season update on the culty ‘Pouch’ bag—a bag she already owns in multiple sizes and colourways. (This, for those following along at home, is a large-sized pouch in the shade ‘Mustard’, and it retails for $2,700, if you’ve got a spare few pennies lying around). A long-time bestseller of Bottega Veneta’s, the bag was an overnight success following its release in 2018 and by 2019 it had entered the Lyst Index as one of the world’s 10 most popular accessories.

This is the seventh (and counting) Bottega Veneta bag Bieber owns. She’s previously been photographed in both the black and white iterations of the micro pouch bag; and the black and zebra print iterations of the oversized, gold-chain pouch bags. She’s also been photographed with the boxy quilted ‘Cassette’ bag, in both black and green. At this point, she’s giving Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s #NewBottega collection a serious run for its money, and considering Daniel Lee seems unlikely to stop making frenzy-inducing accessories any time son, we’re guessing there is still more to come for Hailey and her pouch bags.

Ah, celebrities. They’re not really like us at all, are they?
