Bags by Valerie Steele
Book DescriptionClutch, tote, wear or carry it, the bag is the most portable, and flauntable, of accessories; a compact icon of style and status. In fact, bags speak volumes of our personal approach to fashion, providing clues to our outlook, occupations and even aspirations. Is your favourite bag a tiny, decorative one with just enough room for a lipstick and money, a practical tote with space for all life's essentials or a chic clutch stamped with designer logos. What does each one say about you? All this and more is addressed in Bags: A Lexicon Of Style. A beautifully illustrated study of the modern meaning of bags, the book examines each of the key bag types and explains their evolution and cultural connotations, with chapters devoted to Precious, Practical, Status, Luxury and Utility. It includes the best of contemporary design, incorporating interviews and images from leading labels such as Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Fendi, Hermes, Jamin Puech, Kate Spade, Louis Vuitton, Lulu Guinness and Prada. This makes Bags: A Lexicon of Style as much a book for lovers of high fashion as it is for popular culture devotees.
