Welcome to the world of wearable artistry, where fashion meets creativity in a unique and personal way. With Fashion Week having just passed, one-of-a-kind looks were on everybody’s mind, and handbags were no exception. Whether made for fashion week or not, we’ve put together some of our favorite custom handbags that we’ve come across over the past couple of weeks.
Abstract Lips Bag by @pinklomein_
When a custom artist gets invited to some events in NYFW, it’s pretty much a no-brainer that they’re going to want to show up with a 1-of-1 piece, and Pink Lomein knew the assignment. Alas, we give you this hand-painted handbag. If you have seen any of her work, you will know that the bold, colorful, color-blocked, and uniquely stylized nature of this piece screams her name.
Wedding Venue Bag by @alexa_vangogh
Just because your wedding is the happiest day of your life doesn’t mean you can slack off on the anniversaries! This custom-painted bag was commissioned by a husband as a gift to his wife. It was commissioned as a surprise and features their wedding venue on it. A sweet gift that was perfectly executed by Alexa.
Scream Bags by @artzy_junkie
It’s October, and we all know that means: Halloween! While many people are in the horror mood this month, Artzy_junkie stays in it year-round and has actually built her entire art business off of it. After creating hundreds (at least 😅) of horror themed bags, she has become the go-to for for many people whenever they want something “cute and horror”.
As we wrap up our tour through the captivating world of custom handbags, it's clear that these creations are more than just accessories—they're personal canvases. These handbags remind us that fashion is more than what you wear; it's a reflection of who you are. Each handbag celebrates individuality and serves as a testament to the boundless creativity of their makers.
