Meghan Markle introduced you to the brand's sleek, streamlined and classic shapes ... and now you're about to splurge on one, aren't you?
Since her very first outing with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle has had retailers everywhere crossing fingers and toes that she picks their brand for a hit of that “Markle Effect”. Each time she steps out, there’s a mad dash to quickly snatch up the exact styles of clothing, shoes, accessories, and makeup products that she’s seen wearing before they (inevitably) sell out. And while The Duchess of Sussex has seemingly unlimited options when it comes to her wardrobe, there are quite a few brands that she wears on repeat. One of them being Edinburgh-based luxury handbag label, Strathberry.
Founded in 2013 and known for its timeless-but-still-on-trend leather goods, Strathberry’s ladylike handbags are defined by their clean lines and signature bar closure. Meghan has been seen carrying the brand’s designs since her very first official royal outing with Prince Harry in Nottingham in December 2017. The burgundy, navy, and cream colorblocked tote that she carried not only sold out completely, but it sold out within 11 seconds.
Meghan was then spotted stepping out in February for a royal engagement in Edingburgh carrying the label’s East/West Leather Crossbody bag in Bottle Green to match her navy and green tartan plaid coat. And on her royal visit to Ireland in July, she was again seen carrying Strathberry’s tan leather tote.
With all of Meghan’s exact styles still sold out, getting your hands on one of these gorgeous leather bags has seemed like a nearly impossible feat — until now. Lucky for us, Nordstrom launched a small, curated selection of Strathberry handbags, including the East/West Leather Crossbody Bag in a variety of colors and a similar version of her tote bag in navy blue and burgundy. But like everything else The Duchess of Sussex wears, we have a feeling these bags will sell out fast. So scroll down and snag your favorite Strathberry handbag before it’s too late!
