If you keep up with a science blog or two, then you probably know that worlds beyond our own have been a hot topic lately. While I am more interested in biology-related news, I did find it interesting that a new galaxy was discovered just recently. This “new” neighbor is unique in a lot of ways, so it made for some interesting reading. Don’t worry though, I won’t bore you with the details. The only reason for bringing it up is because this curiosity humans have for “outer space” seems to have inspired a couple of handbag designers. As you will see, one of these designers comes at no surprise, really. But the other one caught me a bit off guard. Just check out these two styles and I think you will see what I mean.
MARC by Marc Jacobs Space Techno Wingman Lenticular Clutch. $138
Something like this is classic Marc! His diffusion line is always featuring quirky designs and this piece is no exception. This unusual wristlet features an intergalactic-inspired background and a very unique foreground. Do you see the astronauts? They actually disappear and reappear, depending on the viewing angle. Too cool!
Kate Spade New York Over The Moon Rocket Clutch. $348
Now this is the one that has me stumped because this just isn’t Kate Spade’s usual M.O. Nevertheless, the clutch is pretty darn cute. It resembles a space shuttle, much like the ones you would see at NASA. The main body is made of patent leather and the nose is accented with glitter.
