Check out these latest retro music inspired handbags, from Living Dead Souls’ shoulder guitar bags, to Momaboma’s vinyl record-shape handbags.

Living Dead Soul is known for their punk music inspired fashion, while Momaboma is an Italian household name, famous for mixing and matching different materials.

I don’t know about you, but these retro record bags sure look cool to me!

Implications - Vinyl may have given way to modern music technology such as CDs and digital music tracks, but nostalgic music fans are keeping retro records alive by repurposing them into functional accessories. Such "upcycling" also meshes with the rise of environmentalism and eco-conscious behavior; by purchasing recycled records, consumers are keeping them out of landfills.
