Stefan Cooke’s Paper Bags

Once I saw a woman on the 339 bus open a dog-eared cardboard box and out of the box came a bodega blue and white striped plastic bag. Then out of that she pulled not apples and pears, but a pristine Louis Vuitton. If you are saving your bag for best Stefan Cooke has the answer: vintage purses and pocketbooks printed on washable paper with detachable button straps and metal feet. Chic for groceries, cocktail hour and getting caught in the rain.
