Later Louis XIV, the King, who was known for his liking to fashionable clothing, had tailors make man's sleeveless jackets with pockets and all the court dandies replicated this detail of the wardrobe. Ladies went on carrying sacks experimenting making them bigger, decorated with embroidery and glass beads, and then consequently, the first women’s handbag was invented in the second half of the 17th century.
