We Found the *Exact* Purse Taylor Swift Wore on Date Night With Travis Kelce, and It's Every Bit As Gorgeous As It Looks

And she's not the only celeb wearing Aupen

When it comes to fashion—and football, for that matter—Taylor Swift knows how to make a statement. The pop sensation was recently spotted leaving the set of Saturday Night Live with boyfriend Travis Kelce, but our eyes were glued to more than their clapsed hands. What caught our attention? Her little black bag: the Aupen Nirvana ($360).

Taylor Swift’s Exact Kansas City Windbreaker Is Back in Stock, But You Better Shop Swiftly


Like Swift herself, this little gem really does make the whole place shimmer. Not only is it roomier than it looks—it measures approximately 8.6-inches wide, so it can hold your phone, a large wallet, oversized sunglasses and your keys—but it also has one back wall pocket, so you can stash a lip gloss in there, too. Not to mention that the sleek black finish and asymmetrical shape make it the perfect statement piece.

It's not the first time Swift, 33, has chosen this distinctive accessory. The singer-songwriter also showcased it at pal Jack Antonoff's rehearsal dinner ahead of his September wedding to Margaret Qualley, as reported by Page Six.

She's not Aupen's only fan, either: Our editors also love it. The Nirvana has become Commerce Director Nicole Briese's new daily go-to. "These bags are different than anything else out there right now," she says. "They're unique and trendy (just look at that shape!), giving them an edge over your run-of-the-mill leather shoulder bags, yet they're every bit as luxe, if not more, than, say, your classic CoachKate Spade or Tory Burch thanks to the incredible detailing, like the gorgeous braided leather strap on the Nirvana. They won't replace your favorite tote (the pockets are minimal), but they're perfect for quick errands or date night."


They also add a bit of glitz for special occasions—just ask Swift's BFF, Selena Gomez, who flaunted the Purpose Ice Bag ($240) during the 2023 VMAs in September. The singer has a penchant for luxe, unique finds—and that’s exactly what the brand captures. While Taylor’s Nirvana bag is more minimal, with an adorable bean-shaped charm and braided leather straps, Gomez’s version goes all-out with dazzling rhinestone embellishments. (And not to fret—It comes with extra should you happen to lose any.)


Even fashion queen Tracee Ellis Ross has also become part of the Aupen cult, rocking the brand's asymmetrical Purpose bag ($180) with a midnight blue leather tuxedo set.

Long story short? You’re going to want to grab yourself one of these purses before they inevitably go out of stock. Shop the celeb-approved styles below.
