We’re all familiar with the Kate-effect — you know, the lightening-speed propensity for items Kate Middleton wears to sell out in seconds. Well, we’re going ahead and calling that the Duchess of Cambridge’s potential future sister-in-law, Meghan Markle, may be shaping up to exercise the same superpowers. And the first item to sell-out in a snap? Meghan’s go-to cognac Everlane tote bag.
While royal well-wishers across the globe have been losing their minds over snapshots of Meghan and beau Prince Harry holding hands for the first time, our style-minded eyes quickly shifted straight to her other covetable arm candy. That incredibly versatile tote bag.
Crafted by the sustainably-minded folks at Everlane, the Day Market Tote is 100 percent Italian leather with a smart shape that makes it the quintessential everyday bag. While this bad boy would fetch a hefty $370 retail value in a regular retail market, Everlane’s direct-to-consumer model brings this beaut down to a friendly $165. Not that it matters though, considering it’s on backorder until November 25th.
See what we mean? The Meghan Markle effect is already in full swing.
There’s a consolation prize here for those of us who didn’t flock to Everlane in time to score this bag. Because the warm cognac color is just one of four shades that the Day Markey tote is available in. The black, navy, and blush versions are all still in-stock and ready to add-to-cart.
Like we said before: we’re calling that the Meghan-effect is about to catch on like wildfire. Watch out fashion-verse, here she comes.
