James Piatt Purses

So I came across these very interesting leather purses by designer James Piatt. These purses are not your standard leather carryable…rather Piatt creates pieces that are references to pop culture, most usually controversial. Case in point? The piece above is titled “Tinkerbell” and is a direct reference to Paris Hilton’s abandoned chihuahua.

Piatt has other pieces as well. The one above is called “Foundling” and is a reference to famous babies. It comes with 4 keychains: a well (Baby Jessica), a pack of cigarettes (Britney Spears’s baby), an open window (Michael Jackson’s son “Blanket”), and an airplane (the Lindbergh baby). Here’s “Pursuader”…which is a pretty cool purse shaped like a gun.

I actually like the gun purse. It’s different. The clip is also a cell phone holder. Check out his site for more interesting design works from Piatt.
