Best Bag Repair

Spilt Chianti, melted lipstick, vicious subway doors -- when it's time to take that classic Kelly into the shop, go where Tod's, Stephane Kelian, Saks, and Denise Ridge go -- to Art Bag or Modern Leather Goods. The two shops see 200 bags a week each -- and employ a small army of leather workers and fabric houses. Services start at simple strap repairs and fabric dry cleaning (for about $65) and go right up through relining, rewelting, reglazing, replating, or giving up and re-creating.
