80 Unique Bags and Purses

From Cured Meat Carryalls to Controversial Handbags

— December 16, 2009 — Fashion
Gone are the days of the ‘It’ bag. Perhaps now, it’s all about the ‘Bizarre’ bag. At least, that seems to be the case for the people who created some of the unique bags and purses in this collection.

Granted, some of these unique bags and purses are just unique in that they provide more/different functionalities than typical totes, but others are truly bizarre—take the exotic animal bags, for example, or the bags with heels. Maybe it’s time to go back to the It bag, after all.
