Pencil and paper out, guys, we’ve got a pop quiz for you: What do Lana Del Rey, Alexa Chung, and Carly Rae Jepsen have in common? No, we’re not talking about great hair or rad style (although that’s true, too). Turns out all three ladies are minted members of the Namesake Handbag Club™. Ahem, if you haven’t heard of this super exclusive establishment YET, think of it as the ultimate way to take your fashion muse status to the next level. Mulberry originally debuted the “Alexa” bag last year, named after the Brit icon and inspired by her preppy-tomboyish personal style. It shot to “It” bag status pretty much immediately (despite its cool $1,350 price tag), with fellow celebs like Nikki Reed, Ellie Goulding and Florence Welch all sporting the luxe leather carryall. But Alexa’s not the only one with her own Mulberry- Lana Del Ray snagged the honors of a “Lana” bag courtesy of the U.K. brand earlier this year, too. Now it’s Carly Rae Jepsen’s turn to claim bragging rights, thanks to a white leather “Carly” clutch inspired by the “Call Me Maybe” singer herself.
The bag comes courtesy of McFadin, an accessories company created by two longtime friends and drawing influence from the duo’s Texas upbringing. It’s already won a cult following in Hollywood, counting Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez as fans (the brand already has a “Selena” bag in stock!). The new “Carly” style is a white leather envelope-shaped clutch decked out in studs and fringe tassle. Although Carly’s already been spotted out and about carrying the bag around town, we normal people will have to wait until it’s officially stocked in late October. For now, peep the “Carly” clutch here and let us know- which celeb deserves her own handbag next?!
