Bags of tact

The Lovells press party a couple of weeks ago continues to throw out nuggets of colour. Such as fragrant capital markets head Sharon Lewis, who apparently has one of the largest handbag collections in the City. One indiscreet lawyer Tulkinghorn was chatting to told him Lewis would think nothing of changing her bag several times a day to suit the occasion. Tulkinghorn, always the gent, replied that perhaps the delightful Ms Lewis learnt her sartorial skills in Paris,where she is based, and he thought it only appropriate that the bag should match the event. He added that in no way would his pages begin to refer to her as “the Lovells bag lady”.
