We love a fashion moment wrapped in a mystery, which is precisely what happened when fate, or chance, or whatever, first brought us to our dream handbag. There, in the sea musty bins at the Brooklyn Flea, it glimmered: a purse made up of cream coloured coils…dare we say, telephone cords? It was bold, campy, and utterly weird, so we did a bit of investigating to find out where, when, and why these peculiar fashion accessories were born (and how we should start collecting them for our summer wardrobe).
