New Twist on a Handbag







Handbags by Kathleen Dustin

Kathleen Dustin's collections are made in a unique baroque style in the form of fruits, flowers, boxes, brushes, icons and collages with drawings in the style of the Renaissance. Many are exhibited in museums. I would put one of these under glass and just stare...such creativity!
Happy Wednesday!

I really love the two at the top! Looking at the photos it's almost hard to imagine that they are actual handbags, the photos look like they have been illustrated...
Alicia - How unique! I was thinking these qualify as art not accessories . . . and of course that is what they are. I could see myself using one of the last two for a formal evening out.

The colors are beautiful. Are they meant to be used - or for art?

They look quite real, I imagine if you were walking down the street with one you'd have plenty of people doing a double take wondering what you are carrying.
Alisa said…
Wow, I never would have known they are purses, had you not said.... they look like sculptures.

Thanks for the kind words on my blog. So glad to have you come over. I had no idea we perhaps live close to each other, funny we would meet by way of Australia.

The handbags are exquisite. Will be fun getting to know you :)
