If you love everything that Selena Gomez touches, your bag collection is in serious need of an update. Coach just announced a collaboration with the multi-hyphenate — she also happens to be their brand ambassador — which has birthed the Selena Grace bag in soft red leather. The new carryall packs in more than a few personalised touches: a hangtag with her signature, a storypatch on the inside with the message “To be you is to be strong”, and the phrase “Love yourself first” in Selena’s handwriting embossed onto the base of the bag.
With her new Coach bag, Selena joins the rarefied list of celebrities who have been immortalised in fashion. The most famous of the bunch being Jane Birkin, the stylish French actress whose chance encounter with Hermès chief executive Jean-Louis Dumas resulted in the creation of one of the most coveted pieces of arm candy in the world.
