Because most of us are staying home due to the circuit breaker efforts to curb the spread of Covid-19, we have more time on our hands to indulge and binge-watch South Korean dramas. And if you’ve clicked into this story, you’re likely a fellow fan of JTBC’s Itaewon Class that starred Park Seo-joon, Kim Da-mi and Kwon Nara.
We had previously dissected Kim’s character Jo Yi-seo’s unique fashion style and now, we’re diving into the bags that she carried. So whether you’re shopping for a new tote or just want to cop some style tips from Kim, keep scrolling.
Early in the show’s run, we had already seen stellar looks from Kim – including this unconventional and edgy Valentino studded design to accompany her night-out look.
The four-ring adornment has become an iconic motif for Alexander McQueen. Besides adding a tough, graphic quality, you can actually slot your finger into them and transform this bag into a clutch.
Are you in search for a compact yet unconventional bag? This Maison Margiela bucket bag can be slung as a shoulder bag and doubles as a top handle handbag.
Unconventional colours such as greens and yellow might be difficult to pull off, but it shows off your styling prowess. Follow Kim’s heed and pick a classic silhouette like the Loewe Lazo and don’t be afraid to try lesser picked hues for your next bag.
Many people are afraid of animal prints because they perceive it to be loud and difficult to style. However, as Kim shows here, picking snake print in neutral tones can be easily incorporated to your everyday looks without drawing excess unwanted attention.
When people refer to bags by Bottega Veneta, they often refer to those made with the Intrecciato woven technique or the cult favourite Pouch. However, we reckon that this knotted Twist clutch has an equally unique silhouette that deserves attention too.
Joy Gryson is a Korean fashion label with a few of its bags sported by Kim’s character. The clean lines and white colourway pairs well with the YCH blazer she wore in this scene.
Since its inception, Valentino’s VSling has been a hot item and has been spotted on many celebs. Even Son carried this bag in Crash, though we much prefer this red colourway for the bright pop it gave to Kim’s ensemble.
The Softshot is the sister design to the Marc Jacob fan-favourite design Snapshot. Loyal users love it for its pragmatic small size for days where you want to go minimalist and carry the bare essentials.
