Legendary handbag designer Carlos Falchi, whose lightweight totes in exotic skins and funky colors have been carried by Cher, Tina Turner, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Rihanna, is spending today (Nov. 7) at Pumpz & Company at the Galleria in Edina doing one of the things he loves most: talking to the ladies.
“The best part of visiting stores is I hear them. I hear the ladies—what they like, what they want. They’re my teachers,” says Falchi, who spoke to me on Shop Girls on myTalk107.1 (Nov. 2 show, hour 1 – minute 21).
So visit the store today, Noon to 5 p.m., and tell him what you want, whether that’s more pockets or a new size. (Falchi tells me he just made a “huge clutch” for Rihanna, so watch for that on the singer’s arm, and eventually, in stores). Falchi is bringing some vintage pieces to sign, along with skins for custom designs.
