Olivia Culpo’s Perfect Spring Bag (Hint: It’s By an Arab Label)

Olivia Culpo’s most recent ensemble proved that the best way to pull off head-to-toe black in warm weather lies in one easy accessory: A statement handbag. Culpo was spotted out and about in New York wearing a black belted Vanessa Seward jumpsuit accessorized with oversized shades and Dolce & Gabbana hoop earrings, but it was her gold miniature crossbody bag by Egyptian sisters Mounaz and Aya Abdel Raouf of accessories label Okhtein (which means “sisters” in Arabic) that made a stand-out impact. With its reflective, high-octane shine, the Palmette Minaudiere bag made for a striking contrast against an otherwise understated outfit, taking the monochrome look from borderline gothic territory and into spring-ready.

Culpo isn’t the first It girl to take the 2016 DDFC/Vogue Arabia Fashion Prize winners’ designs for a spin. Palestinian-American beauty Gigi Hadid has twice been spotted carrying an Okhtein bag, choosing the mini studded bag and mini dome clutch bag in pink.
