How the great brand handbag that changed the world



The handbag is the most sculptural of fashion accessories.  Unlike hats (which meld with the face) and shoes (which with any luck stay put on the feet) the handbag can just as often be spotted alone, set down on a table or chair as it can be seen swinging from its owner’s arm. 


Shape, structure and silhouette are thus key qualities of any handbag from the hard edged lozenge of a Wilardy Rocket to the more relaxed, “melting” shape of an Alexa.


The shape of a bag can tell us something about the wearer, her personality and moon, and even the age in which she lives.  Uptight style queens love hard edged glamour, while laid back bohemians prefer the unstructured and casual. 


Capacious bags are for hard times when we all have too much to do; small ones are for more frivolous, free spirited times when we are hardly out of our dancing shoes.


What then should we make of the Korean designer Lie Sang Bong’s “Accordion” bag?

With its high-concept from and sleek gothic looks, this bag makes a statement that is bold but complex.


 Dramatic? Erotic? Dystopian, even? You choose.  We live, ti seems, in a complex, fragmented age.
