The four members of South Korean superstar girl group BLACKPINK, Lisa, Jisoo, Jennie and Rose, all have their individual unique charms and are the fashion icons of the new generation. Whether it is their stage outfits or daily wear, many women look to them for style inspiration. Here’s a look at some of their favourite designer bags.
As the trendsetter of a new generation, the charismatic Lisa has been the muse of Celine ever since Hedi Slimane took over as artistic director of the brand. She is frequently seen in their outfits and accessories and has been spotted in the front row of their runway shows. This year, Celine officially appointed Lisa as the brand’s global ambassador. The immensely popular K-pop star is also the brand ambassador for fine jewellery brand BVLGARI.
Here, Lisa is carrying the brand’s 2020 F/W Celine 16 Strap bag. The brand has added brand new accessories for the 16 handbag series, removable wool and leather trim shoulder straps, presenting an elegant Parisian style. There are two sizes, and six different colours so that you can have more options to mix and match with your outfits. It is estimated that they will be available in Singapore this October.
Celine’s hot-selling tote bag has been downsized. The Mini Vertical Cabas is a new item from the 2020 F/W line-up and is derived from the brand’s Vertical Cabas bag. The bag that Lisa is carrying is a Chinese Valentine’s Day limited edition model, and the designer has added a tiny heart shape to the ‘I’ in the logo, to represent everlasting love.
With its clean lines and gold hardware, the structured Celine Maillon Triomphe bucket bag which is crafted out of calfskin leather, looks effortlessly stylish.
Celine Triomphe bags can complement any outfit. Here, Lisa channels her inner rockstar by pairing a striking red Teen Triomphe bag with a sheer black top.
