Emily Ratajkowski has undoubtedly been quite the busy bee these past few days. The supermodel is occupied in promoting her new book, My Body, a collection of personal essays on her relationship with her body has been in recent years. But just because her schedule is packed doesn’t mean the style icon is slacking on her street style looks anytime soon.
This week, the 29-year-old was spotted running around on her book press tour, braving the cold in some oh-so chic yet cozy looks. Being the bag aficionado I am, I couldn’t help but spot two handbags that added a pop of autumnal color to her ensembles. One, a sculptural crescent bag in Burgandy with a thick gold chain, while the other a crossbody satchel in burnt orange.
Further looking into the statement-making bags, I unveiled that the two are actually from the same bag brand, Charles & Keith (Thank you press release). This isn’t much of a surprise, seeing that once Ratajkowski loves a bag brand, she’ll wear styles over and over — talk about loyalty. The model is also known for setting a precedent for the must-have bag trends (see her summer must-have JW Pei bag), and her latest is not only the perfect bag for fall but your wallet too.
The first sighting of EmRata with the Singapore-based handbag brand was on November 16th, where she nailed airport style in a monochromatic green trench coat look paired with matching cowboy boots. The sported the Charles & Keith burgundy chain handle sculptural bag, which added just the right amount of color to offset the green. The bag in question retails for only $73 — yup, I couldn’t believe it when I first saw it too.
Looking into the second bag only validated the insanely yet humbling pricepoint of the brand. Two days later, taking a walk through the streets of Manhattan with her dog, Colombo, Ratajkowski was seen in the brands Charlot Bag, pricepoint? $69. Like the look mentioned above, the bag added a nice hue over her cream shearling coat and somehow contrasted perfectly with her printed midi skirt — but come on, have we ever not liked something EmRata wore?
To top off the remarkable structure and silhouettes of the bags, and of course, price point, leave it to our sustainable and eco-conscious queen to fall in love with a brand that makes their bags with a leather alternative. If you’re inspired by Ratajkowski’s latest bag obsession, you’re in luck both styles are available to shop now at charleskeith.com.
