I don’t think we even need to argue that Amal Clooney (née Alamuddin) had a very stylish year. She’s got great office style, great airport style, and definitely great wedding weekend style. Now, that most fashion icon of things has came her way: A bag has been named after her.
Meet the Amal, a leather top handle tote by Italian brand Ballin. It’s the sort of classic, simple style you could carry to work and on weekends, but it’ll set you back—it’s $1,198 at current exchange rates. Browsing the site, it doesn’t look like all of the brand’s bags are named after other stylish faces, though I do see two I recognize: the Cressida and the Katniss. (Cressida Bonas, I miss you!).
I wish I could super-zoom into this shot of Amal, but I’d say it looks like the exact bag she’s carrying, right?
Okay, it’s definitely the same bag. It’s a pretty perfect work choice, too, since it looks roomy enough to fit files, notebooks, and a laptop if you need, but isn’t fussy in the least.
