When you're one half of one of the chic-est couples in Hollywood, your best bet (we're talking to you, Dylan) is to let your other half – a.k.a Hungarian supermodel Barbara Palvin – decide for herself what she wants for her next wardrobe staple. After all, the Victoria's Secret model has pretty much walked the runway for every label you can think of, from Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Nina Ricci to Emanuel Ungaro, so it's no surprise that she's picked up some know-hows from the fashion business along the way that have allowed her to surpass even her fashion-savvy actor boyfriend. Which is also why The Kooples has fittingly teamed up with Palvin for a co-created bag – aptly titled Barbara by The Kooples – that will make Dylan Sprouse's job easier and our wardrobes a whole lot brighter. Inspired by vintage cosmetics' cases, the hand-bag is exactly what you'd imagine from your favorite girl-next-door, down-to-earth supermodel: a mid-size option for your weekend outings with your S.O and a mini-version tapped for those happy hour nights and beyond. Besides the classic black leather iteration, the other stand-out piece is the Barbara bag featuring an all-over crocodile print, perfect for a time where the animal print trend is pretty much on top of every celebrity's go-to list from Kendall Jenner to Kim Kardashian. Credits to Palvin for spotting that quick, and soon, you'll get to join the chic crew too.
