While in France, we saw hordes of haute girls carrying canvas totes with sparkled handles. The bags were made by Vanessa Bruno, and they're not just a cult item overseas: We've spotted them in New York, too, dotting the shoulders of noxious thirteen year old girls - and their older sisters, and their moms. The bags are fine - cute, sure, and very functional. But a normal-sized canvas tote by Vanessa Bruno costs over $300, which makes us wonder: What's the appeal? And can't you just make one yourself, from a $9 canvas bag and some sequins? Shed some light on this phenomenon, if you please - meanwhile, we're plotting a DIY.
