An American once said to me, “Where’s the money shot?” Here they are: the money shots. – Juergen Teller

This revised and expanded edition of Juergen Teller’s bestselling Handbags features a careful selection of images from the original 2019 book, alongside his favorite photographs made since. As before, Teller’s advertising campaigns for distinguished brands such as Coach, Dolce & Gabbana, Loewe, Saint Laurent and Vivienne Westwood are shown with images of handbags deftly styled for fashion editorials-all worn by celebrities and models or photographed as still-life objects. Teller acknowledges the visible shift towards celebrity endorsement in recent years, which has led to exciting new encounters with a multitude of actors, musicians, artists, writers and filmmakers.

In his unmistakable subversive, raw style, Teller presents the ultimate fashion accessory as an everyday item rather than as a glamorized commodity, often in surprising contexts (a handbag perched atop supermarket vegetables) or with humorous intent (a bag sitting on a taxidermy crocodile). This time around, More Handbags has the compact size of a handbag itself, making it more accessible and tactile-and aptly more affordable for all of us who might not be able to buy the real thing.
