Pursuader in silver leather, $379.00

Tinkerbell, $317.00

It’s a tough world out their…but looking fabulous and fierce is a sign of our times. Enter James Piatt handbags, truly some of the most one of a kind designs on the market today. Not just pretty, Piatt’s bags offer poignant commentary about violence, celebrity, and yes, fashion.

It all started with Piatt’s “Peacekeeper” bag, which was created by Piatt as a gift for a friend. Featuring a brass knuckle-like handle, this haut handbag is more than just a place to put your lip gloss, but a way to protect yourself. Like all good ideas, word about the Peacekeeper flourished and now Piatt has a team to help him create his unique vision.

In all honesty, I can’t believe that I haven’t seen some celebrity pictured with Piatt’s “Pursuader” bag. While I wouldn’t encourage someone to bring it to school, this gun-shaped bag is luxe and edgy at the same time.

Not for the faint of heart, Piatt also offers the “Tinkerbell” bag, which is entirely more than meets the eye. Based on Paris Hilton’s discarded Chihuaha of the same name, this grim yet intriguing design feaures, yes, a dead chihuaha. “This design capitalizes on the trend of carrying a small dog as an accessory,” (source ).  I think that I love the “X”‘s over his eyes the best.

Check out James Piatt’s website to find out more about these bags, peruse his art or see his super cool gallery with these bags featuring hot Russian-esque chicks and war scenese (love).

    The ‘peace keeper’ purse is fabulous. And I’m especially excited that the ‘pursuader’ comes in metallic pink.
