In this town, it’s all about the signifiers.
What you eat, wear, do, and drive (read: where you are on the food chain) can mean the difference between “Can he return? He’s, um, in a meeting” and “I’ll put you through immediately.” The bag you carry? That’s perhaps the most important.
Particularly when there’s a script inside. Sure, Hogan invented the whole script-bag thing. But no trend lasts forever, especially in the capital of transience. The next big thing? Alice Park’s sleek, perfectly constructed leather attache case. Available in different colors (dig the contrast stitching!), it lends an impressive touch to whatever it contains. We’re not saying it’ll get your project green-lit, but it may just get your foot in the door.
And in these parts, that’s half the battle.
