Katie Holmes is not one of those celebrities you’ll only see wear something once. If she likes something and it looks good on her, you’ll see the stylish star re-wearing the piece on multiple occasions, styling it differently each time. (Unless we’re talking about her Khaite cashmere bra, that is—a piece simply too viral to ever re-wear.) A piece that comes to mind in recent times is the ripped denim, also by Khaite, that she’s worn for both day and night.
Over the past few weeks, however, Holmes’s penchant for recycling has moved to her choice of bag. She’s re-worn a stealthy-chic bag that is swiftly becoming her new go-to style. The It bag in question? She favors a leather top-handle bag from Métier London, an accessories label focusing on luxury travel goods. Holmes can’t stop carrying its Perriand City duffle bag, the zip-top style just spacious enough to fit a laptop and a few other daily staples. Just today, the actress was spotted in New York City carrying it in a navy leather, pairing it with a double-breasted coat, flared jeans, and sleek ankle boots.
Prior to the spotting, she has worn the bag all around Manhattan, pairing it with everything from a plaid dress and knee boots, to a double-breasted coat and sneakers. The message has been heard: while some trendsetters are gravitating towards vintage designer bags, Holmes is making the case for a quiet, but still expensive-looking, carry-all instead. And functional, too—bonus!
