In the last ten years the trend for "it" bags, first initiated by Herms in the 1950s with the Kelly bag, has taken off, making the luxury goods market extremely lucrative. Certain bag styles have achieved iconic status and are copied the world over, each with its own instantly recognizable name.Featuring handbags from well-known fashion designers as well as up-and-coming new talent, this book showcases the most exciting and innovative handbag designers from across the globe, including Chanel, Philip Lim, Chloe, Dolce & Gabbana, and Marc Jacobs.
