A lot of the time, a celebrity and the handbag she’s carrying make sense. Kim Kardashian carries lots of Birkins because she’s all about flaunting her wealth, Miranda Kerr carries a lot of Celine and Prada because her style is more in line with fashion people than celebrities, the Olsens carry a lot of vintage bags and It Bags before they catch on because they tend to set trends rather than follow them. As for Kate Hudson, I don’t see her make appearances on paparazzi sites all that often, but if I had to imagine what type of bag I’d expect her to carry, it’d be something that fits her luxe-hippie public persona. Perhaps one of those embellished, patchworked Simone Camille bags, or something made of brown suede and trimmed in fringe.
The last thing I expected Hudson to carry was something like the Nina Ricci Liane Leather Satchel. Nina Ricci is an old school Parisian label with a very clear bent toward traditional Parisian femininity, which isn’t the aesthetic ideal that I think of when I picture Hudson. That’s the nice thing about accessories, though; you can step outside of your generalized comfort zone without committing fully to a head-to-toe reversal of your normal look.
