A Find: A Bag with a Little Character

Having trouble finding the perfect gift for that quirky artistic pal with a sort of bizarre yet cutting edge fashion sense? Instead of just buying her a gift certificate to Urban Outfitters, give her a unique piece that’s sure to showcase her creative flair. Just look to Yoox, the Italian e-store, where design, art, fashion come together. Yoox’s totes that they sell anything that you cannot find in stores.

That means out of season designer pieces at discounted prices, vintage clothing, and original items created by up and coming as well as already established artists. Most intriguing are Strambo, a new line of eight different basic bags created by eight different designers, artists, and architects. These “self-made bags” give online shoppers the opportunity to mix and match different pieces that zip, snap, or Velcro on to the base bag in order to create a truly unique and fashionable piece. Take this tan clutch by Fulvia Mendini ($100). Want to add a little flair to it? Then just tinker around with options on the website until you find your perfect bag. Suddenly, it is a beautiful floral purse that comes with an adorable charm (add it on for $70). Sometimes the results of mix and matching are more worthy of a pedestal than a shoulder. Find more wearable art at YOOX.com.
