Kaia Gerber, Selena Gomez, and Naomi Campbell are all sources of fashion inspiration. [Side note: Kaia Gerber has no business dressing so well for an eighteen-year-old. At that age, especially if you grew up in the 2000s, we all struggled though low-slung belts and statement necklaces like sad extras on Gossip Girl. End rant.] And lately, there has been a single bag tying them all together.
All three celebs have been spotted carrying Alexander McQueen’s new ‘Story’ bag, and it’s finally available to the rest of us today. Gerber and Campbell were both seen during fashion month carrying the style, and Gomez wore it in New York City when she changed her outfit three times in one day. They’re not the only ones who got to wear the before its release: Soo Joo Park, Liya Kebede, and more have been spotted with the Story.
It’s no wonder why everyone is obsessed with it: You can carry it in three different ways. The silhouette reminds us of vintage ladylike top-handles, it has a detachable cross-body strap, and there’s a genius front hardware piece that allows you to carry it like a clutch. It comes in four colors, all inspired by endangered and extinct flowers, which were also referenced in the designer’s spring-summer collection. In black, this bag could easily be your new favorite to wear on the daily, but even the bright orchid bag is something that translates from day to night. If you’re looking for something with a little more volume, they also launched the Tall Story, a tote with similar design notes.
At $2,190, the leather bag is definitely an investment, but isn’t that what the holidays are all about?
