I read an interview with Karl Lagerfeld in which he said that he has always loved beautiful shopping bags and could never bear to throw one away. This was his inspiration for the Chanel leather shopping bag totes that are all the rage this season. I'm sure he is not alone is his love for gorgeous shopping bags.
I too love beautiful shopping bags and display some in my dressing room. Among my favorites are the orange Hermes, the chocolate brown and white striped Henri Bendel, the lavender Bergdorf Goodman, the chocolate brown Louis Vuitton, the blue Tiffany, the shocking pink Betsey Johnson, the green and white striped Kate Spade, the dalmatian print Inn at Little Washington, the pink Thomas Pink, the white Chanel, the always changing but always chic Neiman Marcus.

And please, no comments about worshipping materialism-this is recycling! What is your favorite shopping bag? One of these iconic ones, or perhaps one from a local store of yours. I'd love to hear....
