First Things First...
It's safe to say every chic Instagram influencer has a Brandon Blackwood bag. The Jamaican designer's bags have been seen in countless Tik Tok videos; not to mention his End Systemic Racism (ESR) tote went viral last year when reality TV star and beauty mogul Kim Kardashian posted a photo wearing a canvas version.

And now despite their seemingly unlimited access to all the designer totes of the season, celebrities, too, have been spotted wearing the bags on repeat.

Most recently, American actresses Logan Laurice Browning and Kiki Layne made the Kuei bag their go-to accessories as they sat front-row at the Pyer Moss Haute Couture Fall/Winter show.

Jamaican-Canadian model Winnie Harlow lends her eye for fashion to season two of Amazon Prime Video's fashion-focused reality competition series Making The Cut.

Harlow — who made her debut as a contestant on cycle 21 of America's Next Top Model — returns to television, this time as a judge. She and newcomer Jeremy Scott, creative director at Moschino, join hosts Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn.

Harlow shared photos of herself, Heidi Klum and Jeremy Scott on Instagram with the caption: “The first two episodes of Making The Cut are out now on @amazonprimevideo!!!!!! Jeremy Scott and I are joining Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum as this season's new judges! Tune in Fridays. You can shop the looks on @amazonfashion!”
