James Piatt’s handbags are a tad unusual to say the least.

The red "Peacemaker" hand bag, priced at $80, comes outfitted with a knuckle-like handle for those situations where you need to protect yourself and lay somebody out cold.

Meanwhile the "Persuader" handbag, which comes in silver leather, is styled in the form of a bad ass machine gun. This aggressive accessory is priced at $379.

Finally, the upside leather "Tinkerbell" was inspired by Paris Hilton’s Chihuahua. "This, design capitalizes on the trend of carrying a small dog as an accessory," says CoutureInTheCity.com. Stats for Controversial Handbags Trending: Older & Average
