‘SUCCESSION’ CAUSES BURBERRY BAG TO GO VIRAL: Succession’s Season 4 premiere made the $3,000 Burberry handbag carried by Cousin Greg’s date Bridget go viral. 3DLook, a virtual fitting room company that analyzed the Google Trends data surrounding the episode, told Harper’s Bazaar UK that searches for the accessory skyrocketed after the episode aired. It seems viewers think it’s the perfect accessory to “fit flat shoes for the subway,” a “lunch pail” or to “slide across the floor after a bank job.”
