I love this "On the Streets" by Bill Cunningham in Sunday’s NY Times. I always look forward to these. Since I personally own one of the bags he is poking fun at, I love this one even more. Let it be known however, I prefer the Prada and Miu Miu puckered leather look over the Prada "shag."
Novelty handbags often suggest different breeds of dog. There is the
wrinkly shar-pei, right, whose folds of skin are reflected in an array
of puckered leather bags. There also are dogs who call to mind the
shaggy-look leather bags, above and left. The artisan dog handbags by
Priscilla Snyder, bottom left, are intricately embroidered works of
art. Some of Ms. Snyder’s newest bags are three-dimensional sculptures.
