Inside CC Skye's Bag
At first glance, it’s difficult to picture CC Skye—a thin, platinum-blonde Malibu native—trekking through the Himalayas for six months. But that’s exactly what she did while studying abroad during college (she speaks fluent Nepalese), and it was actually in Nepal she learned to make clothing and jewelry. Today her eponymous collection of bags and baubles is a hit in Hollywood, and everyone from Cameron Diaz and Eva Mendes to Rihanna and Nicole Richie has been spotted sporting one— or many—of her rocker-meets-boho-chic pieces. Details like studs, luxurious leather and eye-catching hardware have us clamoring for her pieces as well. Here, CC opens up her fabulous bag and let’s us take a peek at her everyday essentials.
My mom is my best friend in the world. She was always decked in hot looks from the 70s and 80s—she’s a fashion icon in my life and a huge inspiration for every collection.”
