So, I’m not really posting this to review the Michael Teperson Feathered Flute Bag – I think you’d really have to see it in person to give it a fair shake, since it’s so odd (I mean…rooster feathers?). I’m posting because sometimes, us handbag people associate certain bags (or types of bags) with certain things or events. At least I do. So when I was paging through Vivre today, I came across this bag and immediately thought of Sex and the City. Circa season 5 (well, maybe 6), while Carrie is dating Burger (well, about to be sticky-noted by him) and they’re going to go to Smith’s play in Brooklyn.
He wants to go on his motorcycle, because he’s an insecure dude trying to be masculine, and she’s in her new Prada dress and has her hair fixed and DOESN’T want to go on the motorcycle. To make the idea that much more ridiculous, the wardrobe department gave here a clutch with several feet of, uh, stuff hanging from it. I think it was beading in that particular case. At any rate, this bag is that type of bag – the one you carry when you’re wearing shoes so high you can’t really walk in them and you expect to be doing nothing but sitting and being awesome for the entire night. And for that, I think it is fabulous. Buy through Vivre for $950.
