The Inés Figaredo Handbags 2012 are the right mix of comedy and chic. Spanish handbag designer Inés Figardo's philosophy is "to offer a single art-bags Collection per year which will be completed with fresh and haunting surprises from time to time launched accordingly," according to the designer's site. The limited release ends up working in Figardo's favor, giving her the ability to gather inspiration and have thoughtful designs. Additionally, she is constantly surprising her fans with inspiring designs.
Each purse is a statement piece: an exploration into turning a handbag into an art form. Figardo's designs are reminiscent of the late designer Alexander McQueen, who is synonymous for using skulls and creating crafty clutches. The collection varies from more over-the-top pieces such as the gold hand bag, to more traditional with the climber clutch, which has more subtle detailing.
