Dua Lipa’s seems to be privy to all of the hottest fashion trends and upcoming designers. We love watching her style evolve, especially when we see her sport a great find like the newest It bag.

Over the past few decades, certain designer handbags have achieved legendary status, gathering a cult following of celebrities and fashion fans: the Balenciaga City, the Fendi Spy, the Celine luggage, and the Telfar are just a few of the standouts. If you’re looking for a new handbag to add to your summer accessory rotation and want to get ahead of the It bag trends, it’s time to learn about Luar.

As noted by InStyle, Luar bags are the new celebrity It bag, and stars like Dua Lipa are fans of the more affordable purses designed by Raul Lopez — specifically the top-handle style Ana Bag. Early on, the Ana was almost impossible to snag, selling out in less than three hours when it dropped last fall.

Dua has been spotted with the bag, which retails for $365 for the large and $235 to $265 for the smaller size, several times, and Troye Sivan and Charli XCX have both rocked the Ana bag too. The Ana is a top-handle satchel bag made of leather with a classic ’50s-esque design, and each bag comes with a removable crossbody strap so you can rock it hands-free while you’re out and about.

The Luar bag is similar to the Telfar not in style but in price point — it’s a luxury bag with a more accessible price tag than the $1,000+ designer bags more commonly considered It bags, like your Chanels and Balenciagas. “I wanted to make a bag that could carry literally everything, but also be taken from day to night,” designer Raul Lopez explained of his inspiration for Ana. “I’m not a person who tends to go home and change. I dress for myself and I like something that completes my look. I can just wear sweats and go. Athlesiure has become so popularized in pop culture, fashion, and even business—people want to put on a good bag and complete the look.”
