You’ll maybe surprised to learn that they have been restocked several times as the bags instantly sell-out.
I’m a bit behind because celebs like Miley Cyrus, Nicole Richie and Jennifer Meyer have been fans of these bags for a while.
Yesterday Julia Roberts arrived for her appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” wearing a black tee and J Brand jeans which is quite a typical look for her, but it was her Simone Camille which stood out.
The range of bags have been created by LA stylist and globetrotter Simone Harouche.
She launched her line of handcrafted bags last year after a bespoke design for Nicole Richie created a huge demand.
The bags are created from vintage textiles Simone has collected from around the world, which I suppose justifies the £1,300 + price tag for a large bag.
A typical bag from the Simone Camille is multi coloured, embroidered by hand, made of cotton and decorated with coins, mirrors, pompoms and bead embellishments.
I wouldn’t be surprised if your initial reaction was that these bags are hideous, but I quite like them as I love anything that has a touch of ethnic flavour.
If you would like to have your own made-to-order bag, Simone Camille will be happy to create your custom bag.
