The term statement accessory is one that the style savvy among us hear on a regular basis, splashed across fashion magazines and pegged as the ‘new season’ look. Whilst a brightly coloured bag or dangly earrings can make a fashion statement beyond the ordinary outfit, surely a bag is still, well, just a bag?
Not, it seems, according to the likes of SkinnyDip and ShopJeen, new-era online stores which have made it possible for us to fling a can of coca cola, an egg or even mermaid tears, over our shoulder and use a rasher of bacon to store our purse.
This may sound highly bizarre, but weirdly wonderful bags, particularly the clutch and body-bag kind, are springing up across the market. Now, the statement isn’t one of chunky shapes or clashing colours, but disguising your bag as anything but a bag.
I collected some of the most outrageous and eye-catching designs that embody the outlandish Tumblr culture of today’s young adult generation.
Whether you love outer-space, The Simpsons, books, mermaids or even breakfast, I’ve got you covered.
