Analyzing everything from the lowly paper McDonald’s sack to Tiffany’s instantly recognizable baby blue tote, this loving tribute is infused with the ardor and insider details only devoted, lifelong shopaholics could muster. How else would we learn why a white Chanel shopping bag is more prized than a black one? And who else would care that the first Harrods pouch was a 1920s raffia number created for the poultry department? No matter — Sue Weiner and Fran Michelman?s’ enthusiasm in Shopping Bag Secrets is infectious when paired with photos of the glossy subjects themselves, leaving no Fendi, Moschino, or even Victoria’s Secret satchel unturned.
