What’s in Nicole Kwon’s Bag?


What's in Nicole Kwon's bag?You can shop Nicole Kwon’s store, find her favorite lines, and ask what she’s pumped about carrying each season, but prefer to get more personal. Kwon stopped by the D offices yesterday to spill her gorgeous new Mansur Gavriel bag. Between running a shop, designing her own collections, and opening the store’s new e-shop this month, I don’t know how she found time, but I’m thankful she did. I’ve added a couple new things to my wish list as a result. Take a look:

1. Scrap book/journal. “When I go on buying trips or get inspiration for my own line, I like to put these here.”
2. Unearthen jewelry. “They’ll all handmade in California. We’re very exclusively carrying them in Dallas. It’s so different. It’s special. Even though it’s bold and big, you can wear them all together.” [Ed note: Dying over these.]
3. Clare Vivier Grand Pochette cosmetic case. “Sometimes I just wear it as a clutch.”
4. Beauty products from top left:
Guerlain Météorites Powder For The Face. “I don’t use a lot of foundation.”
Tocca eau de parfum in Stella. “I have about four perfumes, but I think this is great for spring/summer.”
Rodin lip balm. “It’s my favorite lip balm.” [Available at Forty Five Ten]
Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector. “I wear this every day.”
Darphin Organic Rose Aromatic Care. “For anti-aging. It smells so relaxing, too.”
Givenchy Le Vernis Intense Color Nail Lacquer in Croisiére Purple #12. “It’s my spring color.”
YSL Rouge Volupté Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick in Lingerie Pink #7. “I wear this during the day. At night I wear a darker color, like fuchsia.”
5. Canon EOS 60D. “I carry it with me all the time. Most of the time I just take photos of casting models or for the website, but sometimes I take photos of random things to hang them up.”
6. Measuring tape. “It just makes me happy.”
7. BookBook iPhone case. “It supposed to look like a vintage book, but you can carry credits cards, receipts, and cash.”
8. Real Raw Juice’s The Skinny. “It makes me less guilty eating chocolate.” [We coincidentally both had brownies for breakfast.]
9. Copic markers. “I’ve had these for 15 years. I got them back in Korea when I was in high school.”
10. Karen Walker sunglasses. “They go well with everything.”
