It may serve as a portable boudoir, office, bank, and emergency kit for women everywhere, but the once-humble handbag has also become an essential fashion accessory, a bellwether of cultural trends, and symbol of wealth and status. From designer classics (the Chanel quilted bag, the Hermès Kelly, Gucci's bamboo-handled snaffle designs, and Louis Vuitton's Monogram) to artistic creations from Judith Leiber and Nathalie Hambro, and trendy celebrity favorites Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, and Balenciaga, this is an A-to-Z tribute to the art of the purse, with large color photos and cameos of wearers from Jackie Kennedy to Naomi Campbell.
