The handbags in Netflix's Emily in Paris season two are certainly not for the faint of heart. Fashion know-it-alls might be surprised to spot even more designer purses than they did in season one, according to costume designer Marylin Fitoussi, who consults the renowned Patricia Field on the show's wardrobe.
