Recently I saw glimpses of an interesting interview with the costume designer of the movie Blue Jasmine. There she talked about the concept in the design that the main character was always carrying around the luxury bag she had and reflected her and what she stood for in the movie. The bag was the life she had, the life she had lost but so deeply wished for. Cate Blancett played Jasmine so brilliantly that the she and the bag became one. The handbag is a piece of fashion but at the same time so much the person that carries it!
