All the statement bags in Twinkle Khanna’s closet

Like a good book, she's all about the classics

By Shweta Gandhi  August 31st, 2017

We’re all aware of Twinkle Khanna’s partiality towards books but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t got an eye for bags. She may not curl up with her Hermès in bed (though if she might, we would) and she may not take selfies with her Chanel but she’s definitely lugging her library around in style. Twinkle’s designer bags range from Goyard to Alexander McQueen and her selection is classic. She almost has us wondering if her closet can compete with her book shelf.

8 designer bags in Twinkle Khanna’s wardrobe:

Nothing less than a gold Alexander McQueen clutch for the lady. 

The iconic lips clutch from Lulu Guinness finds a permanent place in Twinkle's wardrobe.

Because no collection of statement bags is complete without an Hermès Birkin 30cm.  

Twinkle channels some Chanel vibes.

Twinkle's go-to bag for when she's running errands? A classic green Goyard St. Louis tote.  

And we've hit jackpot—everyone, meet Twinkle's favourite bag, the Chanel Vintage Maxi Caviar Quilted bag. She carries it so often that we wonder if she ever lives away from it. 

Yet another classic—this one is a Saint Laurent tote. What more would Twinkle—or anyone—want?

We love how Twinkle casually carries her Hermès Jypsiere bag with a pair of denims, a basic white tee and a navy blazer.

In case you’re wondering which books she’s lugging around: 

City of Djinns, William Dalrymple

Twinkle tried to get through this one as slowly as possible just to make it last longer.

Trigger Warnings, Neil Gaiman

That time Twinkle made her husband, Akshay Kumar, go book shopping with her. 

Jeeves and the Yule-tide Spirit, P.G Wodehouse

The Curvy Girls Club, Michele Gorman

Such a long Journey, Rohinton Mistry

Dragons at Crumbling Castle, Terry Pratchett (for her kids)

Trigger Warnings, Neil Gaiman


Eileen, Ottessa Moshfegh

For the literary romantics Khanna recommends Dear Scott, Dearest Zelda.  

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

Twinkle is seriously obsessed with the Fitzgeralds. If your high school reading covered Gatsby, you may want to check out Tender Is The Night.

Hitman Anders and the meaning of it all, Jonas Jonasson

You know when you check out a book by a same author because you loved his previous work? Well this one didn't hit the spot for Twinkle quite like The Hundred Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared.

To Kill A Mocking Bird, Harper Lee

Of course, Twinkle sticks to the classics.

The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The children's book that makes it to most adults' all-time reading favourites. 

Magpie Murders, Anthony Horowitz

That time when Twinkle went to detox with her sister and discovered they were reading the same book.

My Brilliant Friend, Elena Ferrante

"My Brilliant Friend is brilliant indeed. This book does not do any of the complicated zigzags of successful storytelling but is an arrow that flies parallel to the ground and hits at the heart of all human emotion," Twinkle breaks it down.

The Course of Love, Allain de Botton

The psychology of your relationship wrapped up in a love story.
