Handbags have never been more important in fashion: the 'must-have' bag of the season is a much-lusted-after designer item that can make or break a fashion house. For women, the handbag is an intimate extension of the body, a kind of mobile home for all the items indispensable for daily life, and at the same time an indicator of her fashionability - be it Prada, Vuitton or Chanel.Here, Caroline Cox tells the intriguing story of the handbag, in fact a relatively recent phenomenon only in general use since the early twentieth century. She traces its development from its origins in the nineteenth century with reticules (essentially pockets with handles) and Louis Vuitton's revolutionary Noe bag for the female traveller, via Art Deco clutch bags moulded in Bakelite and the Hermes Kelly bag endorsed by Princess Grace in the 1950s, right up to the accessory of the moment, the Mulberry Roxanne. Lavishly illustrated throughout with rare and striking images of bags historical and modern, and exquisitely designed, Bags will be the must-have book of the season.

"Chenoune, the editor of Carried Away, and Olivier Saillard, the curator of the accompanying exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Europe's leading fashion and design museum, have organized the unimaginable wealth of bags into several categories. The chapter discussing domestic bags explains the relationship of bags in the contemporary world to those of other cultures and antiquity. In the chapter exploring travelers' bags, the rich variety of this type is discussed, including messengers' bags, knapsacks, wineskins, nomads' sacks, bags for supplies, the 'auto' bag of the 1920s, the 'Gladstone' and the humble tote. Bags for professionals are also considered, including survey bags carried by postmen, plumbers, and other craftsmen, but also, medieval messengers' boxes, seamen's duffles, soldier's leather cartridge bags, and an overview of the design, leatherwork, and production of bags. The chapter devoted to bags as talismans celebrates the cross cultural, psychological, sexual, mythical, and shamanistic significance of bags ranging from Pre-Columbian ritual objects, to pilgrims' bags from the Middle Ages and Native American cosmogony bags. Carried Away surveys the surprising evolution of the useful commonplace bag into a high fashion totem, and suggests that, chameleon-like, the bag continues to change its form and adapt itself to new circumstances and uses." "The Illustrations are gathered from an equally wide variety of sources and media, including traditional fashion photography, decorative arts, painting, ethnographic collections, military museums, and private collections." --Book Jacket.

This book explores the way meaning is encoded in material culture by focusing on the androgynous symbolism of the looped string bag, or bilum, of the Telefol people of Central New Guinea. The web of meanings 'woven' into the bag is shown to extend beyond women's lives and bodies. It is open to manipulation and reformation in a variety of contexts and is used by both Telefol women and men to explore, and so explain the complexities and ambiguities inherent in their social life.

Louis Vuitton City Bags

This volume is an unprecedented history of Louis Vuitton’s women’s bags, the most coveted line of accessories in women’s fashion. At the heart of Louis Vuitton are its City Bags, a range of women’s bags that dates back to the turn of the twentieth century. Featuring the trademark monograms of the house, the City Bag story began with the Steamer, a resort bag designed in 1901 to be packed inside a much larger steamer trunk. These bags have in a hundred years formally diversified into a dizzying array of handbags for every conceivable function demanded by the modern woman. Profoundly influential, City Bags are now known to millions by their descriptive names (Keepall, Bucket, Papillon, Alma, Locket, Noe, Speedy) and are still evolving into more fantastical forms. Lavishly illustrated with new and archival photography, historical graphics, landmark editorials, and ad campaigns, the volume traces the history of these specific bag families, and examines the earliest specimens and today’s most sought-after collectibles, including Vuitton’s collaborations with Takashi Murakami, Stephen Sprouse, Richard Prince, Yayoi Kusama, and Rei Kawakubo and one-off projects by Zaha Hadid, Shigeru Ban, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Andrée Putman, and of course, Marc Jacobs. Louis Vuitton: City Bags is an ambitious volume on the creation and cultivation of a cultural phenomenon.
