Actor Jacob Elordi pulled off an impressive feat earlier this week: He became the center intersection of a celebrity menswear Venn diagram.
It all started on Tuesday, while Elordi was out and about in Los Angeles. He sported a faded army-green crewneck sweatshirt, a Celine beanie, a pair of gray athletic shorts, white slip-on sneakers, and a conspicuous mustache—all while balancing a small iced matcha latte and a small hot coffee in one hand, plus a black Bottega Veneta Andiamo bag in the crook of his arm. And while that is sort of notable in itself, the real accomplishment here is that Elordi and his incredibly simple outfit managed to go viral on the internet. (Athleisure plus luxe handbag? Kind of a Princess Diana move.)
Elordi then ran the outfit back the next day, swapping out the beanie for a backwards cap and the slip-ons for a pair of green Adidas x Gucci Gazelle sneakers. Meanwhile, actor Austin Butler wore the same pair of green Gucci Gazelles while out and about in LA earlier this week, when he was spotted walking his dog with his girlfriend, model Kaia Gerber, who previously dated Elordi.
(Another coincidence: Butler just wrapped an intensive four years of filming-slash-promoting his portrayal of Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, and Elordi is currently portraying Elvis Presley in Sofia Coppola’s upcoming King-adjacent biopic Priscilla. Phew!)
But the key to Elordi’s impressive maneuver here was the Bottega Andiamo bag—and not only because the sight of a luxurious purse hanging on Elordi’s famously six-foot-five frame delighted the denizens of the internet. Elordi, who’s also known for lugging around a bottomless Shakespeare and Company tote, seems to really love this bag; he even brought it to sit courtside at a Lakers game with Banshees of Inisherin actor Barry Keoghan a few weeks ago. Though the Euphoria actor is historically a pretty casual dresser, he’s long had a thing for low-key luxury bags. He wore a crossbody version of the Fendi Baguette—indeed, Carrie Bradshaw’s favorite purse—to catch a performance of the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen with his ex-girlfriend Zendaya way back in early 2020.
But there’s more: Elordi’s Andiamo, which features the house’s signature “intrecciato” leather braiding, is a smaller version of the Andiamo that rapper RM, of the K-pop megaband BTS, carries in a new Bottega campaign announcing him as the brand’s latest celebrity face. (This is a move that Vogue’s Irene Kim predicted a month ago, when RM attended the Bottega show during Milan Fashion Week in February. Similarly, Elordi went to a Bottega show back in 2022, where he carried the brand’s popular padded Cassette bag.) RM was also spotted wearing his own Andiamo bag, as part of a head-to-toe Bottega outfit, at the Incheon International Airport in South Korea a month ago.
