Following in the footsteps of Grace Kelly (Dior’s Kelly bag) Jessica Stam (Marc Jacobs’ Stam bag), and er, Pippa Middleton (the Modalu Pippa Grab bag) Amal Alamuddin now joins that select group of bag muses with the arrival of her very own Amal tote, from hysterically-named Italian brand Ballin. 

No, really. Ballin.

The Amal is a brown leather day bag that’s a little bit Mulberry Willow, a little bit Proenza Schouler PS13 with a nod to the Celine Trapeze, and you know what, for all that, it’s just a little bit pedestrian too. It’s not great really, but if you’ve got €970 to spare, it’s yours, here.
