Random information on the term ” Handbag”:

Baguettes are small, compact handbags, designed by Italian fashion company Fendi in 1997. Popularized on Sex and the City in the late 1990s and early 2000s, this product is often cited as the first it bag. With the Baguette, Fendi sparked the “buy-a-bag-a-day habit” by rapidly declining it into hundreds of different designs and sold more than a million units in 20 years.

The Baguette concept was for a small, streamlined bag, carried on a short strap, that could be adapted for different looks, colors and textures while still having a consistent aesthetic. It marked a contrast from many popular purses at the time, which were large totes.

Small and little-known, Fendi lent Baguettes as props for HBO’s Sex and the City, a new show that was fast growing in popularity. In one of the episodes, Carrie Bradshaw gets mugged in a narrow street. The robber asks for her “bag”, to which Carrie replies “it’s a Baguette”. Fendi was the first luxury house to lend a piece to Patricia Field, the show’s costume designer and stylist. Sarah Jessica Parker has credited her bag for establishing the show and her character, Carrie Bradshaw, saying “Having Carrie wear the Baguette was a defining moment for us, and marked the beginning of everything”. The success of the Baguette bag led LVMH to acquire Fendi in 1999.

Random information on the term ” Purse”:

A purse or pouch (from the Latin bursa, which in turn is from the Greek βύρσα, býrsa, oxhide), sometimes called coin purse for clarity, is a small money bag or pouch, made for carrying coins. In most Commonwealth countries it is known simply as a purse, while “purse” in the United States usually refers to a handbag. “Purse” can also be a synonym to bursary (which has the same origin), i.e. a monetary prize in a competition.

The oldest known purse was found with Ötzi the Iceman who lived around 3,300 BC. Another early example is on Egyptian hieroglyphs, which show pouches worn around the waist. The purse-lid from the Sutton Hoo burial is a very elaborate, probably royal, metalwork cover for a (presumably) leather Anglo-Saxon purse of about 600 AD. In Europe they often showed social status based on the embroidery and quality of the bag.

In the 15th century, both men and women wore purses. They were often finely embroidered or ornamented with gold. It was also customary for men to give their new brides purses embroidered with an illustration of a love story.
