Tote cou­ture SHE NEEDED, SO SHE MADE IT HER­SELF

SARAH HARAN COULDN’T FIND THE HAND­BAG

The Herald Magazine - - FASHION SPECIAL -

THERE’S a film you might re­mem­ber from the 1990s called One Fine Day. It’s a com­edy ro­mance star­ring Ge­orge Clooney and Michelle Pfeif­fer as two strangers whose lives in­ter­sect on a stress­ful day when they’re try­ing to get their chil­dren to school.

At first, they can’t stand each other; by the end they fall in love – it’s a pretty stan­dard rom-com for­mat.

But for some women who saw the movie, it’s not the plot that sticks in their mind but

some­thing else en­tirely: Pfeif­fer’s hand­bag.

The big black bag seems to con­tain ev­ery­thing. In one scene, Pfeif­fer’s char­ac­ter sud­denly re­mem­bers that her chil­dren are sup­posed to be go­ing to a fancy-dress party. But she hasn’t or­gan­ised any cos­tumes.

No prob­lem. She rum­mages around in the bag and pulls out what she needs to make some out­fits. It’s the same with any­thing else that might come her way: what­ever the prob­lem, there’ll be some­thing in the bag to fix it.
