Handbag of the day, year, Millennium !

Choosing an understated but elegant and roomy bag is always a problem, this from the latest Hermes collection, the Jypsière (aka the Birkin messenger) which our doe eyed Paris correspondent saw launched @ Number 24 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré on August the 10th - was sold out by tea time! . A durable yet androgynous shoulder bag , designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, and worn by him on the runway following his Fall 08 show for Hermes. Waiting lists are long (already!) in the U.S., where the bag has yet to make an appearance. The standard 37cm is too small for Elle McPherson who has ordered several made in a special size.

Remember girls, says Toni Fabuloso -if it has testicles or tires, it's going to give you trouble-
