Kate Middleton's oxblood Chanel handbag is the definition of sophistication, and here's how you can copy her style
Fact: When it comes to fashion, the Duchess of Cambridge can pretty much do no wrong. The English royal is known for serving up all kinds of chic looks, but we’re all about Kate Middleton’s oxblood Chanel handbag, her latest iconic accessory.
On the first night of Prince William and Kate’s two-day official royal tour, our favorite princess blew us away with the gorgeous sparkly, silver gown — truly fit for a princess — that she wore to a dinner at the British embassy in Paris. On Saturday, for the regal pair’s second and final day in the city, she was spotted leaving the Musee d’Orsay in a look that was just as memorable. Fitting for a jaunt to France, Kate wore an almost head-to-toe Chanel ensemble.
The classy Chanel dress (complete with a Chanel double-C logo belt) was a fun multicolor tweed and a very Kate day-dress fit. But can we talk about that bag for a sec?
Here’s a closer look.
The tiny burgundy bag — like Kate’s outfit — is clearly Chanel (the logo and pattern give it away), and it features a seriously gorgeous gold enamel handle. The fashion blog Kate’s Closet quickly ID’d the quilted leather micro-bag as Chanel’s Calfskin Flap Bag with Enamel Handle from the brand’s fall/winter 2015/2016 collection, available in both green and the lovely burgundy color of Kate’s version.
According to Brag My Bag, the style is no longer available for purchase (except via third-party resellers) and originally retailed for about $4,200. Luckily, we’ve found plenty of available (and affordable!) options for you to replicate the look.
