Looking for a practical, everyday bag for the summertime? Go look somewhere else. But if it’s luxury you’re after, Polish vodka brand Belvedere has paired with former Jimmy Choo shoe designer Jonathan Kelsey and singer/songwriter Estelle to create “The Belvie Bag” in honor of the company’s launch of their newest flavor Black Raspberry. “This bag is such a statement,” says Estelle, who served as Kelsey’s muse when he sat down to design the bag. “You definitely have to be trend-savvy to wear it.” Created for the chic party girl, Kelsey’s slouchy summer bag was fashioned using white leather and gold accents.
It also features a hidden compartment inside the bag, which we’re guessing was created so that you can transport that extra bottle of Belvedere you’ve got tucked away. At first glance, it looks a bit bulky for our taste but, as Estelle says, it’s designed to grab attention at the club without knocking over half the people inside of it. “It’s big enough in size without being overpowering,” she says. “You’re not going to be like, Oh, what the hell is this?”
Check it out below. And if you’re interested in copping one for yourself, the limited-edition bag will be available for $1,400 at Jeffrey New York or do some window shopping and view it at several Belevedere Black Raspberry pop-up stores in both New York City and London in early May.
