2017 has failed to disappoint on the handbag front, but that’s not saying terribly much as we’re just over two weeks in. Nonetheless, exciting things are happening. Stella McCartney’s reinvented Falabella line is everywhere, Gucci popularity remains on an even keel, and Fendi and Louboutin bags seem to be oddly popular. Other brands are sure to have their moments in the coming weeks, but it seems like the celeb bag market is fairly hot for mid-January.
Hermès Evelyne Bag
$3,725 via Hermès
Paps caught up with Alessandra Ambrosio carrying a classic Hermès Evelyne Bag while doing a little shopping in LA. I’ve always been quite partialhttps://www.purseblog.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=172806&action=edit#edit_timestamp to the Evelyne, but maybe that’s simply because I know it costs about a fifth of what a Birkin does, and there’s absolutely no wait list. It’s possible.
Anna Dello Russo
Fendi Micro Peekaboo Bag
$7,250 via Neiman Marcus
Here’s Anna Dello Russo, carrying what is undoubtedly (at press time) the world’s smallest Fendi bag to the Fendi’s Men’s Fall 2017 show in Milan. If you think a bag this wee must certainly retail for less than a grand, think again.
Stella McCartney Falabella Box Bag
$977 via MATCHESFASHION.COM
Bella Hadid was recently seen leaving Gigi’s apartment in NYC with this beautiful Stella McCartney Falabella Box Bag. Every Falabella style seems to be experiencing a resurgence in celeb popularity this year.
The Row Classic Tote
$4,500 via Net-a-Porter
Here’s Chrissy Teigen, looking quite ready to enter the kid-friendly confines of Au Fudge in West Hollywood. She’s carrying a beautiful black leather The Row Classic Tote.
Gucci Marmont Satchel
$2,500 via Gucci
Gabrielle Union carried this supple black leather Gucci Marmont Satchel with gold hardware to the the Knicks/Bulls game in NYC. It pairs nicely with her black and yellow ensemble.
Christian Louboutin Panettone Bag

Gwen Stefani carried one of her all-time favorite bags to church last Sunday. We’re not sure Gwen is actually interested in acquiring new handbags any more–that’s how often she carries this beaded Louboutin.
Valentino Histoire Bag
Shop Valentino via Net-a-Porter
It’s a day early, but this nearly vintage Valentino Histoire Bag is a nice TBT moment for Jessica Simpson. It looks like it’s in remarkably good shape for its age.
Prada Top Handle Bag

Finally, here’s Mama Hadid, out and about in NYC with her grey leather Prada Top Handle Bag, which she has been favoring heavily since the holidays.
