From A SheFinds Reader: I saw Jessica Simpson with a medium size black leather purse with gold studs all over it. I WANT IT, but I have no idea who the designer is or anything. If anyone knows, please email me and or post a reply. Thanks.
The Answer: Jessica’s bag came from none other than Lanvin – the “Jet Set” bag. She’s such a trendsetter that there’s a web page dedicated just to imitating her look. Simply Google “Lanvin Jet Set bag” and you’ll find two pages of desperate women trying to find it. It retailed for about $1,600. Yes, retailed – past tense. The bag is not part of Lanvin’s current collection (from what I can tell from the web site) and can’t be found at Barney’s New York where it was previously sold. However, Moo Roo makes a similar but smaller bag that goes for less than half Lanvin’s pricetag – $565.
Before you scream, “Six hundred dollars?! That’s still outrageous! Hello?!” we’ve found the Temma Dahan black studded leather ‘Charlize’ bag that’s much easier on the wallet at bluefly.com and a nicely priced BCBG studded bag ON SALE on ebags.com. BCBG calls its bag “Motorcycle Chic,” while Moo Roo describes its studded bag as “disco revisited.” Whatever you call them, studs are in. Find more studded bags at bluefly.com.
