In the world of celebrity closets, almost nothing is too out of reach or too aspirational. Honestly, it’s what makes keeping up with A-listers so exciting—you never quite know which rare or hard-to-find It item they’re going to wear next. But equally (and possibly even more) exciting is when we spot a celeb touting an item that’s only moderately priced but still just as covetable like the Staud Felix Gathered Shoulder Bag ($295) we just spotted Bella Hadid carrying in NYC.
There’s a few reasons why. her bag caught our attention. First, it’s from one of our favorite bag brands, Staud, whose designs almost always go on to become cult items, this bag included. This gathered leather style also happens to hit on an emerging bag trend we recently reported on. Those two facts plus the added knowledge that Hadid’s pouch clocks in under $300 are the recipe for It status. Staud’s Felix just hit Net-a-Porter in cream and lime green colorways, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see both sell out very soon, so we went ahead and selected a few more bags that hit on the same ruched style.
