I spotted Sue on the street the other day and really liked her look.

But also, I really loved her bag. Isn’t it cool? I asked her how it came about…

“I actually started putting patches on my bag after seeing a cool patched vest on St Mark’s. It was too expensive for me to buy, so I thought, ‘What do I already have that I can put patches on?’ My bag, which I bought for myself for high school graduation, instantly came to mind. I put my name on the front in varsity letters and added a few other small patches and pins that I liked to start. After that, people started giving me patches for my bag, and I started picking them up everywhere I went. Each one is special and reminds me of a place, person, or memory I loved.

It gets a lot of attention, both positive and negative, but neither matters to me. With every patch it becomes more mine. Hence its (perfect) nickname: the Souis Vuitton.” – Sue
