• Description

    Titles read: "BAGGED BY THE CAMERA".

    Location of events unknown - probably London.

    Various new handbags, purses and compacts are seen being used by models. The first handbag is in black suede, with a top piece that folds out to reveal three small mirrors "... so you can look at any part of your head, except inside", says the commentator. A vanity case-style handbag has several compartments for make-up, comb and perfume.

    Two novelty clutch bags are seen; one in suede has tiny charms all over it, the other is made of calfskin with a newspaper print. A tiny cocktail purse or compact is decorated with the names of different drinks; two similar purses have the names of writers and playing cards on them. Another compact has a clock face on it "to make sure you won't be more than half an hour late". A woman opens the compact and powders her nose.
