The "bag of the moment" is Takashi Murakami's limited edition Louis Vuitton and because they're impossible to get, everyone wants one. Eve was sporting one at Fashion Week, and that appears to have heightened the frenzy. Ah, the power of a luxury brand to make people completely revise their fashion sense. No UES socialite would be caught dead wearing space creatures and cherry blossomsunless it's Vuitton, darling.
