The Ivanka Design Studio Concrete Handbags found a way to combine rough construction materials with delicate, feminine fashions. Thanks to its unique industrial materials and metallic colors, these innovative handbags experiment with textures and tendencies like no other. Designed by the Hungarian designer Katalin Ivanka, these fashionable accessories are simply intriguing.

Under the Genesis Accessories Collection label, this line of handbags was unveiled at TENT London this past September. The design is certainly futurist, and, despite being made of concrete and leather, the bags don't carry a bulky or masculine appearance. The most interesting part about the manufacturing process is that the model is initially made almost in its entirety by concrete and then converted into a real accessory by adding leather.

The Ivanka Design Studio Concrete Handbags are a fantastic experiment that not only blends complete different materials, but it also successfully combines two opposing industries: fashion and construction.
