Halle Berry with her Moni Moni Dolce Vita Bag

I love how Halle Berry’s handbag collection doesn’t just consist of ‘it’ bags from more popular designers like most celebrities. I have to thank her for introducing me to some great designers, recently Cinzia Moniaci and her brand, Moni Moni. The collection of italian leather handbags are all handmade and aim for a ‘understated vintage’ look. One of my favourite Moni Moni handbags is Halle Berry’s Dolce Vita top-handle from the fall ’09 collection. I love the zip details on the two front pockets and the texture of those handles.

Unfortunately the bag is no longer available online but you can purchase the Moni Moni bags from a number of stores, including Bluefly.

Celebrity Beach Bags

With summer looming I decided to compile a list of our favourite celebrities’ beach handbags but don’t expect plain canvas totes, these stars don’t care if they get a little sand on their designer choices with not one bag under $500.

First up is Kate Moss who chose the ‘Gloucester’  bag in cognac, from her collaboration with Longchamp. The top handle and classic style remind me a bit of the Louis Vuitton speedy bag so it doesn’t seem suprising that this particular bag was inspired by vintage trunks. Though with a number of compartments I can see how this would make an ideal travel bag.

The Gloucester retails at £590 and is available from the Longchamp website in a range of colours.

For a trip to Miami Beach Kim Kardashian used her loyal Givenchy Elschia Sac, a favourite of Kim’s as she’s been sporting the bag since last year. I’ve got to give her props as so many celebrities disregard their handbags once they’ve become last season. Although I love textured leather one of my favourite features about this bag is the side zips which make it expandable, no doubt it’s very versatile.

Unfortunately, despite its high price tag of $1,975 the bag is now sold out. 🙁

Cleobella is becoming an increasingly popular brand with celebrities and it’s no wonder with their gorgeous s/s collection consisting of boho chic styles.

Halle Berry chose the Kaya bucket as her beach bag of choice, which will be available later this month at ShopBop for $528.

Okay so Riri isn’t actually at the beach here, rather the pool at her hotel but I just wanted an excuse to post the stunning Saffiano Traforato satchel from Prada’s s/s collection. The bags perforated geometric motif certainly distinguish it from the majority and I do love the cute brass details.

It’s available in three colours on the Prada e-store for £970, though neither the black or tan match up to the white.
