Nice bag . . . shame about The View

DESIGNERS at Prada and Luis Vuitton would be tearing their hair out if they saw their bags being soaked by a Scots rock band.

But thankfully for The View, management at the new Mulberry store on Ingram Street didn't mind the Dundee band's champagne exploits.

The rockers shook a fizzed-up bottle and ended up spraying it over designer handbags and guests at the shop opening in Glasgow.

At least five bags were splashed, however management laughed it off as "the most rock 'n' roll launch we've ever done", despite an estimated £5000 worth of damage.

One lucky customer who managed to get her hands on a dry handbag was Iona Wallace, left, from the West End.

Councillor Liz Cameron, chairwoman of Culture and Sport Glasgow, was also one of the party-goers at the opening.

She said: "The bags are to die for. I can look in the window and dream."

Store manager Nic Harbottle said: "The store is doing phenomenally well."
