Michael Kors “Gia” Satchel: Kors Light


It looks like the “Project Runway” co-hosts share a taste for sleek style, on and off the show. Heidi Klum carried Michael Kors‘ “Gia” bag, a black python version from Pre-Fall 2011, in New York two days in a row last week (you know a celeb really loves a bag when it gets multiple outings!). It just reinforced the fact that his clean and structured tote is all the rage.

This is the day bag you carry if you want to look instantly sharp and polished – it dresses up both Heidi’s flowing maxi and cotton sheath without looking out of place or overdone. Python (or crocodile-embossed leather, which is also available for more pleasant price) is timeless and so is the shape – hard but not stiff and ready to hold all your gear for a day’s worth of errands. It is also the ultimate bag for the modern lady: all-American and all-fabulous.

Anthracite Python. At Neiman Marcus for $2,195.

Crocodile-Embossed Plum. At Neiman Marcus for $895.

Python-Embossed Desert. At Michael Korsicon for $2,195.

  1. These bags are gorgeous but the lizard version is really something special to behold. I saw it at the Costa Mesa (South Coast Plaza) Michael Kors store last week and it was priced at around $2400 – $2500.

  2. Totally agree, I love lizard… actually no reptiles are safe near me as I want to make them all in to bags. lol xoxo tina

  3. Not a fan of exotic skins in general. I’m not an animal rights nazi, I just prefer leather. I hope that he comes out with a leather version.

  4. This style has been around since spring…the leather looked cheap…the style is a bit too clunky…not what I would expect from a “designer” bag…plus, they’re made in China so that’s a no-go!

  5. just as an FYI the Gia bag was named after the president of women’s sales at Michael Kors. Hes known for naming bags after “friends” (like many designers). This is a gorgeous structured bag. Go pick it up at the South Coast Plaza store!
