For the last 10 years or more, superhero movies have been quite popular. Hollywood has been reviving the classics, as well as making movies out of characters that had never seen the big screen before. I figured it was just a matter of time before a designer picked up on the superhero vibe. Oddly, I thought I would have seen a superhero handbag collection before now. Hmm, maybe there have been some floating around out there. Did I miss them? Oh well, Stella McCartney has definitely grabbed my attention and that is all that matters, right? Introducing the Stella McCartney Super Hero Tote!
It is no surprise that this tote caught my eye. Just look at those eye-popping colors! The superhero’s mask is bright yellow and black with glittery red eyes. He looks pretty fierce! I also like the varying textures (patent and snake embossed), they give the contrasting colors a little more interest. I think what makes this work is the simple silhouette of a generic superhero. No one is going to call you a geek because you are sporting a Spiderman tote, for example. This unknown superhero makes a statement without running the risk of being a look-alike.
