This may be a first–a handbag named after a department store executive. And while bags are more typically named after actresses, models, socials, and the like, this honor makes perfect sense. Linda Fargo, Bergdorf Goodman’s Senior Vice President, is one of the chicest ladies in town, and Nancy Gonzalez, maker of pretty exotic-skinned purses, seems to know exactly what she’s doing. After all, Fargo is a NYC fashion institution, a classic, if you will. Who better to iconicize a bag with?
The “Linda bag” in question will be for sale exclusively (and fittingly) at Bergdorf Goodman on April 3rd from 2-4 p.m. where shoppers will have a chance to meet Fargo and Gonzalez while customizing their own versions of the bag in terms of size and color. Prices range from $2,950 to $5,000.
