The reason I brought up this movie was because I found these purses and immediately this movie came to mind.
They also have somewhat have an early 007 look to them.
I think they are pretty cool looking, taking something that is the epitome of feminine and mixing it with cold steel and violence. I feel like the artist captured somewhat of the theme
"The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag". Taking the societal standard quiet well behaved woman on the outside with a daring, intimidating and possibly violent nature on the inside. Say what you will about gun control, this is not what this blog is about. I always appreciate any fashion that goes beyond mere functionality and how trendy something is, but fashion that says something, that is truly artistic.
