This venue is closed. Like shoes, handbags are as much fetish as function, yet a handbag boutique is still a novelty. All the more reason to treasure Blue Bag, 500 square feet of revelatory carryalls from London, St. Tropez, Brazil—wherever owners Pascal and Marni Legrand have been. This is where Kate Moss got boho-embroidered Antik Batik evening bags and Jessica Simpson bought her Bulga “Butterfly” satchel. With 28+ designers, up to 160 two-of-a-kind styles, and Legrand working with the designers, it’s seldom the same store twice. Right now, there are lightweight raffia totes by Sans-Arcidet, collapsible macramé baskets by Ira Salles, and snakeskin clutches by Velveteen.
