New Trend: Metal Handbags
Traveling over the weekend, I had a moment with airport security where they unpacked my bag and looked at my antique metal handbag with confusion. Having inherited it some years ago, I only recently started wearing it again to add a bit of edge to fancier affairs. The result is something that is completely different than everyone else--until now. Seems like the idea of metal is catching on. It has an almost ethnic feel with rich finishes and cool concepts of caging, hammered textures, etc. I love the incarnations shown here by Anndra Neen and think it's an exciting new option.
