Elizabeth Kurpis Job

1. I began my career working in large New Yoork law firms forming hedge funds and private equity funds.
2. Although interesting at first, I soon bored. However, I happened to be very good at client development. While most of my clients were in finance, many of their wives, my friends, were in fashion. So I asked myself, “Why not provide them with full service legal advice” as well. For obvious reasons, I found this way more interesting!
3. Began my fashion law practice in 2016 and never looked back!

First thing you do when you wake up…

Elizabeth Kurpis Morning Routine

If my babies are in my bed, I give them a soft kiss and squeeze while they sleep.
If not, unfortunately, I reach for my phone to read any overnight emails and read up on any morning news.

What is your idea of the perfect day?

Elizabeth Kurpis A Perfect Day

★ Reading a book undisturbed under a shaded umbrella in a warm locale with a view so beautiful it’s hard to imagine it’s real, and, of course, all with a cocktail in hand.
★ As sunset approached I’d change into something glamorous for evening and hop aboard a boat for a ride with family and friends that led to a delicioius wine-fueled alfresco dinner.
★ Ideally I’d be in bed by 11pm latest with my husband and both children.

Any hobbies?

Elizabeth Kurpis Hobbies

Baking has always been a creative outlet for me and a way to relieve stress. It’s something I’ve enjoyed since a very young age and have continued doing regularly with my two children, as I once did with my own mother.

If you could only eat one meal at one restaurant, every single day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Elizabeth Kurpis Favorite Meal

It’s hard to imagine not tiring of any meal, but if I had to pick one that may withstand time, I’d say caviar along with all its accoutrements.
It goes with just about any other food and makes everything taste better. You could literally put it on a piece of cardboard and it would taste delicious.

Advice you’d give to an influencer or the best advice you’ve received?

Elizabeth Kurpis Advice

It’s a piece of advice I received from my father a long time ago relating to any situation you find yourself negotiating something:
NEVER be afraid to walk away from a deal, and you’ll always come out ahead.

Best Wordle to start with?

Elizabeth Kurpis Wordle

ADIEU. Bonus 2nd word: STROP
If you can’t solve the puzzle in under four guesses using these 2 words, it’s probably time to bid the game of Wordle adieu…

Shallow and boring.

I mean we *are* on a blog about high end designer bags that we buy with expendable income that not everyone has. “Shallow” could be used to describe most of us, if people wanted to make assumptions.

You know what they say about glass houses and stones…

Agreed. One of the most cringeworthy posts in a while.

Apparently if you like handbags, you’re not allowed to have any other opinions. But I agree it was boring. I’m interested in people’s style and what drives their aesthetic, not just how much cash they can drop. That’s often the least interesting thing.

Annoying read thanks to every single word starting with a capital letter – but perhaps the interviewee’s idea of being relevant and interesting…

I don’t see why others have described this one as “shallow” or “dropping cash”? I actually feel like for bags she went with brands she likes rather than the usual Hermes/Chanel/LV you’ll typically see on a list?

Agree! That little yellow bag is adorable! I want one. Definitely nice to see designers featured who aren’t known for their bags but make cool ones.

Agreed! It was fun and lighthearted. Not everything has to be deep and thought provoking. I read PB for the same reason I go to the movies. I look for escapism and this provides it temporarily…well, until it gets political, racial, etc.

It would have been better to have a brief explanation of what a fashion lawyer does (or at least what this fashion lawyer does). Given the PB has a global audience, it would also have been useful to explain that Quest is a magazine created for mutual admiration among the rich New Yorker and Greenwich, Connecticut set.

A suggestion for future what’s in their bag columns …perhaps talk to a curator in the accessories/costume department of a museum like the Met, the V & A, etc or a stylist who’s worked on several major movies? No, they’re probably not IG famous, but they would have an interesting perspective.

Looking forward to it! A good starting point might be the Museum of Bags and Purses in Amsterdam. https://www.amsterdam.info/museums/tassenmuseum/
Or Ms Daniela Spielmann, who was one of the major sponsors of the fantastic “Bags — Icons & Investments” exhibition in Switzerland. http://www.spielzeug-welten-museum-basel.ch/en/special-exhibitions/bags-icons-investments/ (my friends and I spent hours there and took tons of photos and videos).
