Conservancy Luncheon Purses

The Women’s Committee of the Central Park Conservancy’s annual Frederick Law Olmstead Awards Luncheon is known as the “Hat” Luncheon, and of course toppers steal the show. But in all things, what’s below the surface also matters. So we glanced down and focused on the purses for the 42nd edition of this luncheon. As always Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dior and every possible color Birkin bag prevailed, but we found some unusual choices – one vintage clutch inherited from a mother-in-law, another concocted by a patron’s housekeeper in the same fabric as her dress, even a 3D flower bag created by a waiter-friend-of-a-friend — not to overlook a paper shopping bag(!) and one live puppy(!).
