Rachel Bilson with 3.1 Phillip Lim Edie Studded Bag

Rachel Bilson was spotted carrying her 3.1 Phillip Lim ‘Edie’ bag while shopping in LA a few days ago. The Edie is also a favourite Diane Kruger and Nicky Hilton and I’m not surprised with that cute bow flap and studded embellishment. Unfortunately Rachel’s bag was fall 2009 collection and the black leather recently sold out on Net-a-Porter, however Phillip Lim’s resort 2011 brought some cute new variations of the coveted handbag.

I can’t wait to get chance to see these bags in stores though I do prefer the darker shades as I think they highlight the bags gold studs more.

Celebs Love the Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2010 Collection

It’s nice to see a bag in LA other than the Hermes Birkin or Alexander Wang ‘Rocco’! Actresses Rachel Bilson and Kate Hudson were recently spotted carrying the shoulder bag from LV’s pre-fall Brode line. The new premium leather handbags made from lambskin leather with unique monogram embroidery. I love how in keeping with past collections the bag has a small padlock attached but this time in an aged, silver hardware.

The bag is available in two sizes (GM and PM) and in four different colours; Gris, Framboise, Marron and Kaki.

I wasn’t too sure of the bag in Louis Vuitton’s 2010 travel guide but I’d definitely like to see a close up of the bags embroidery.

Prices start at $2840 for the smaller model and are available in LV stores worldwide from June.

Rachel must have liked the collection seeing as she was also sporting the pre-fall Aviator bag last month! I love how she’s wearing it with the longer strap to suit her effortless style.

The Aviator includes a shiny monogram pattern in jacquard fabric and a quilted lining. It’s available in three colours; kaki, marine and bordeaux.

I must admit that although I’m a fan of the seasonal LV bags, I’m not too keen on this one, especially with the high price tag of £2000. If you’re interested in the bag, it’s available to purchase in store, click here for more information.
