DUBAI: British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted in California last week sporting a chic box bag by Dubai-based label L’Afshar.
The 31-year-old former Victoria’s Secret Angel carried the bag at the Vital Proteins Collagen Water product launch event in Irvine, California.
The bag hails from L’Afshar’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection and is called the Ida in White.
Huntington-Whiteley paired the boxy bag with a sleepwear-inspired outfit in a cheerful sky-blue shade, complete with pajama-esque pinstripes and a deep V-neck. The ensemble was designed by London-based fashion house Galvan.
The model and actress isn’t the only celebrity who has shown off L’Afshar’s unique bags, however.
Model and reality TV star Kendall Jenner touted a bag by the brand in Los Angeles in October.
The Kardashian sibling sported a boxy purple bag with a gold chain, called the Ida in Purple Croc, at a game between the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers — whose official colors are purple and yellow.
Kylie Jenner has also been spotted clutching a bag by L’Afshar in recent months.
Back in June, the younger Jenner sister, who was recently named the youngest ever self-made billionaire by Forbes, was seen carrying the see-through Lucite Pagoda bag in Cannes, France.
The Ida in Purple Croc bag has been worn by more than a few Hollywood celebrities, including Laura Dern and Rachel Bilson. However, those aren’t the only A-listers who seem to be huge fans of the homegrown brand — actress Jasmin Sanders, Bella Hadid, Kate Upton and Alicia Keys have all made public appearances with L’Afshar’s arm candy on hand.
Lilian Afshar, the designer behind the brand, is known for her unique, structured designs and use of marbled resin and intricate mirrorwork.
Lucite — known commonly as acrylic glass — and birthstones also feature in the brand’s range of typically heavy, straight-edged clutches in a range of clear-to-saturated colors and textures.
