This is how to accessorise exactly like Emily Ratajkowski
There may only be room in the world for one impossibly hot girl like Emily Ratajkowski, but that doesn't mean you can't own a small piece of her style. Like many cool and beautiful girls before her (we're looking at you Alexa Chung and Kate Moss), Em has cultivated a strong online following, with her 13.4m Instagram followers tuning in to see her Amalfi holiday snaps, bikini selfies and never-ending array of perfectly worn-in Levi's jeans. And while we're sure that brands like Re/Done and Reformation love it when she snaps herself in one of their creations, so far no brand has really tried to tap into her personal style - until now.
Enter French cool-kid label The Kooples (fresh from Australian expansion last year), who have enlisted Emily to distill some of her much-copied sartorial swagger into a handbag collection for them. To us it makes perfect sense that Em would play muse to the contemporary fashion label - known for its photogenic couple pairings in ad campaigns and timelessly chic designs. So what to expect from the bag? A boxy cross-body satchel featuring several compartments, it was designed with Em's grandmother's Prada and Dooney & Burke bags in mind. "I think there is something really timeless about that and that is what I love about this," she told Vogue.com.
"I was looking at all my purses and being realistic about what I really love and what I really wear. It came down to combining my favourite-looking purse with my most useful purse." While Emily has Instagrammed herself carrying the red medium-sized version, it's also available in taupe and black and comes as a mini, medium and large. Confessing that she doesn't currently own a wallet, Em explains that the bags hold several compartments to hold things like cash, keys, lipstick and "birth control". Priced at US$375 for the mini, $445 and $495 for the large, according to The Kooples Instagram teaser video, the bags will be revealed on July 5.
We suggest you get in quick, at this price they won't stay stocked for long.
