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!

PS. Thanks Don for the scan!

    They didn’t mention your name! Hah. Next thing: Style.com featuring Bryanboy. Oh, wait, that was two weeks ago. Bryanboy in the front page of the new Vogue.co.uk website?

    Given the nonsensical quiality of the copy, ASD probably had his hand in this…
    “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”… WTF?
    Anyhoo, congrats on the bag!!!!

  3. I still think he should give you one. It’s only fair. I mean, you’re the inspiration!

  4. Well, BB got a huge shout going out to him on my somewhat prolific website today so it’s only a matter of months before we see his name up for nomination as Time Person Of The Year.
    ;)

  5. That is so amazing, BB!!!! Jealous! I agree with Nadir: next stop, the cover of Vogue! You are certainly thin enough!
