Salvatore Fer­rag­amo’s Sofia bag.

DO THIS SEA­SON’S HANDBAGS HOLD MAR­KET IN­SIGHTS?

Town & Country (Philippines) - - CONTENTS / APRIL - By Sarah Bray

In 1926 the econ­o­mist Ge­orge Tay­lor pro­pounded the the­ory that hem­lines rise along with stock prices. Seventy-five years later Leonard Lauder coined the term “lip­stick in­dex” when cos­met­ics sales soared dur­ing the 2001 U.S. re­ces­sion. Whether cor­re­lated to the mar­ket or not, this sea­son’s hand­bag sizes are ex­treme. Her­mès and Valentino showed chain bags so tiny a phone would never fit in one; Ba­len­ci­aga and Cé­line de­buted day­time totes so large they would ex­ceed TSA carry-on reg­u­la­tions. Fer­rag­amo saw both sides and rere­leased its Sofia bag in a range of soft leathers and exotic skins in small, medium, and large.
