Australian actor Jacob Elordi has been the talk of the internet and paparazzi for a few weeks now. His bags are the center of attention, not his roles or his highly regarded performance at the Venice Film Festival, which explains why everyone is so enthusiastic.
A beautiful tale of love between fashion and Jacob Elordi and his baggage
Even if every it-girl has an assortment of it-bags, guys still want to cram their possessions into their pockets or have their partners carry them. Even though it appears counterintuitive, there seems to be a universal consensus that men shouldn’t carry handbags.
This is why Jacob Elordi, who rose to fame in 2019 with the HBO series Euphoria, has been making waves with his adorned appearances for a while now. The first instance was in 2020, when he strolled with his ex-girlfriend Zendaya while carrying a Fendi Baguette bag over his torso. However, the public and media believed that he was only transporting his sweetheart’s possessions. They called him a “gentleman” and praised his appearance as “too cute.”
What a shock it was, however, when the 26-year-old Australian actor turned up again a few months later, this time at a Fendi party, clutching another Baguette bag. He not only had two of them, but he wore them both as well! With the help of Carrie Bradshaw’s character from Sex and the City, who popularized the stylish bag in the late 1990s, Jacob Elordi became the new it-boy of his generation with that first fashion statement.
Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Céline, Valentino, Bottega Veneta, and Chanel… Jacob Elordi’s wacky assortment of bags
Since then, the Australian actor has added new pieces to his collection of leather items for every appearance, enough to make any fashionista shudder. Jacob Elordi is astreet-stylee icon. He can be seen strolling through the streets of New York with a large soft leather tote bag by Celine or holding a matcha in one hand and a Bottega Veneta Andiamo bag in the other. In Milan, he wears a Valentino Locò mini bag under his arm, and at the Bottega Veneta fashion show, he holds the house’s iconic Cassette bag, which every customer lusts for. To put it briefly, Jacob Elordi owns every trendy item in his wardrobe, flaunts it, and most importantly, makes a statement with it.
He demonstrated this by showing Sofia Coppola’s next film, Priscilla, at the 2023 Venice Mostra, where he played Elvis Presley. He was seen holding the Louis Vuitton Keepall bag, which Pharrell Williams had updated for his debut Louis Vuitton fashion show last June with a canary yellow edition, as soon as he set foot on the city’s harbor. His basic shirt-and-trousers ensemble was elevated to a chicer level with the addition of a lovely tiny black quilted purse from Chanel, which he wore the same evening.
