    The handbag has long been a symbol of status and style - it dominates the fashion scene, adds that all important finishing touch to the outfit, and is the portable accessory that no woman can live without. This book celebrates some of the most fantastic and desirable handbags of the 1950s. All are constructed of lucite - an acrylic plastic - considered to be a radical and innovative substance at the time. Still highly desirable and collected today, they command high sums on the vintage fashion scene. Unrivalled for their beauty and influential because of their unusual design. Illustrated in over 170 color photographs. 208p.
