MCM the New It Bag?

Is this the new it bag?  Selena Gomez has been spotted wearing this MCM Heritage Bowler a few times over the weekend, a gift from her beau, Justin Bieber.

The bag is part of the Spring/Summer 2011 line, and features leather trim and crisp gold hardware.  Personally, I’m not a fan of logo-splashed prints on bags and would prefer the bag if it were all in that rich cognac leather.

MCM or Mode Creation Munich is a relatively new handbag line (founded in 1976) and receives a lot of flak from Louis Vuitton devotees for emulating the logo-prints and similar gold hardware placement. However, I’m a leather snob and can’t argue with MCM’s quality leather goods.  Lately they’ve been revamping their lookbook and product line.  This celebrity endorsement might just put the stuffy brand on the style radars of the young and stylish.

Maybe I should break out my vintage MCM in navy…
