Thailand Tatler: Bags for Bloggers
Did Philippine Tatler Editor in Chief Anton San Diego have a hand on this? Back in February right after the Marc Jacobs show, I wrote about Grace Kelly, Jane Birkin AND Jessica Stam getting their own bags named after them. Then comes this little ickle mention at Thailand Tatler (May ’08) magazine.
Bags for Bloggers – Jacobs 2.0
Immortalising actresses through bags started with the Hermes Kelly bag in 1956 and followed with the Birkin bag in 1981. Now celebrities have handbags named after them, too. Fashion designer Marc Jacobs recently named two of his most popular handbags after celebs: the Stam bag in honour of supermodel Jessica Stam and the Rihanna in honour of the Umbrella singer. In a drastic move in early spring, Jacobs named his autumn 2008 ostrich bag “The BB” after a fashion blogger. No one is doubting the importance of bloggers in today’s world – it was Matt Drudge’s blog that told the world that Prince Harry was serving in Afghanistan – but with handbags now named after them, these netizens really have arrived.
I think you know who that blogger is. How cute! Thanks Thai Tatler!
