Not all her bags are this cool or 'statement-y' but this is a nice one.

This has an eco-slant encouraging people not to use disposable plastic bags.

Fendi Colour me Mine - colour in bag

This fendi bag comes with 10 pantone markers and the idea is that you create your very own personalised fendi handbag. I think its a cool story and a current innovative and playful idea.

Alot of people have dissed it but i think it plays on the whole concept of luxury itself.

You don't have to draw doodles over the whole thing, you could simple just write your name on it if you wanted to. Or write the name of your loved one on and give it as a present.

You could stalk a famous or notable artist and even get them to draw something on it. I can think of countless ideas for this little number. Nice one fendi.

Denim Diesel Bag

I don't really like this bag much but thought it was worth a mention due to its use of distressed denim and the main body material.

The details that would normally be physcially attached are just stitched on. This is a brilliant example of the unexpected and the witty.

Augustin Scott de Martinville

Re-design work based on a traditional Indonesian basket. The shape, the pattern on the fabric and the function are all reinterpretation of the original object.

Re-bag by Augustin Scott de Martinville

Exhibited in Museum fur Gestalltung, Zurich, 2002, as part of the "Sampling versus Design" exhibition.


Designed by Anna Sheffield for Bing Bang, her stuff is sexy and classic at the same time. A mix of craft with more than a touch of class.

Amazingly beautiful pieces found here:
