Walking around Chelsea the other day, I spied a chic, new fitness space called CULTURE. Part “urban country club,” part 1-on-1 athletic studio.
It was the perfect setting for my post about Comes With Baggage, a collection of clutches that double as witty, wearable objet d’ art. My friend and CEO/über talent broker Lori Levine sold a third of her Coveteur-featured closet on eBay to fund the original collection; they’re made out of leather, woven leather, patent and snakeskin and emblazoned with snarky expressions and edgy doodles. And, they’ve been spotted on Katy Perry (my pop idol), Uma Thurman and Rosario Dawson.
So, it was just another day in the neighborhood, taken up a notch or two. Because as another friend, a New Yorker-turned-Angeleno, says: We can all benefit from a little art & culture.
