You might not have noticed but Gigi Hadid has been playing favorites with her handbags recently. Although the supermodel has access to all of the biggest designer labels in the world, there seems to be only one that she wants to tote around at the moment—and you probably won’t have heard of it, until now.
A few months back, Hadid was spotted carrying a mini snakeskin, top-handled tote from accessory brand, Stalvey. Since then, she has been seen with countless other bags from the label (in red, black, white and more)—and has been using them to accessorize everything from casual denim ensembles to night-out attire.
Of course, it wasn’t long before the bags caught younger sister Bella’s eye and she soon stepped out with her very own version (or perhaps, stole Gigi’s). During fashion month, it was the bag to be seen with, meaning that Kaia Gerber, Naomi Campbell, and Hailey Baldwin all snapped one up.
However, if you’re wanting to follow suit and pick up one of these supermodel-approved totes, then you might want to start saving. A Stalvey bag can retail from around $5,000 to $15,000, depending on which exotic material you’re after.
The brand is known for creating classic, timeless accessories in exotic animal skins, including lizard, alligator and ostrich. It was launched by Jason Stalvey who actually had a history in business and neuroscience before turning to luxury fashion. The brand was launched in 2014 but has only recently made its way onto the supermodel scene.
If these models have convinced you to splash out, you can pick up a number of the handbags online at Moda Operandi, but be prepared to pay around a 50 per cent deposit. These are the two at the top of our wish lists.
