Whichever team, the Broncos or the Seahawks, is your pigskin pick to win Sunday night’s Super Bowl XLVIII, the most fun part of the annual NFL event is the camaraderie and the parties surrounding the event. It’s become something of a national holiday even for those of us who aren’t football fanatics.
What with the tailgate parties to the potluck suppers to some black-tie events, every one seems to become a sports enthusiast—at least for a night. Why not look the part? British designer Charlotte Olympia, who has developed a following on both sides of the Atlantic, for her fun-filled, often irreverent shoes and bags, has just the thing: a Touchdown bag that scores a goal in our book. It’s part of her “Sweet Talk” collection based upon 1950s-era Americana such as diners, Archie comics and jukeboxes.
While we love the look, be forewarned if you try to take it to Met Stadium on game day, there are those strict safety guidelines the NFL instituted last year restricting most handbags. (Don’t get us start on that one!)
