Stepping out in New York on last night, Dakota Johnson styled a relaxed handbag style that, the more I looked at it, I was sure I had seen before. 

Opting for a large black handbag in a quilted leather fabric from her go-to brand, Gucci, Johnson styled her oversized tote with a longline structured coat and light wash jeans. Adding a practical element to her casual look, Johnson’s quilted bag was large enough to stow away her essentials, but neat enough to retain a polished edge.

Whilst Johnson’s Gucci bag offers heritage design in a new-season silhouette, the cool £2,780 price tag firmly cements it as a luxury buy. And rightly so—Gucci bags have proven themselves to have eternal appeal (the Jackie alone is evidence of this), and if you do decide to invest in the real thing, I know you’ll have it in your wardrobe for a very, very long time. Sadly, my current budget doesn’t stretch that far, which is why I’m considering one of the styles I had previously spotted on the high street. 

I’ve spotted so many high-street brands embark upon creating their own slouchy totes lately, but it’s COS’s quilted style that sticks out in my mind.  Whilst COS’s quilted nylon crossbody bag is a current favourite amongst Londoners, its sleeker leather style is a near perfect match for Johnson’s new favourite. Complimenting a casual outfit, and adding a laid-back edge to more structured silhouette, the enduing handbag trend is set to enjoy more popularity in 2024. Read on to shop Johnson’s quilted bag, as well as our other favourite quilted bags below.
