Embossed PVC Clutches and Bags from MeDusaBrand
There have always been a plethora of beautiful, ornate, and downright drool-worthy bags and clutches gracing runways and streets alike, but it seems designers have really kicked it up a notch lately in the creative department…or maybe everyone’s just getting more brave as competition becomes more and more stiff. Take Moschino’s bold move with incorporating McDonald’s-themed pieces in their Autumn/Winter 2014 line. I can’t be sure I would have seen that just a few years ago, but then again I wasn’t paying too much attention to the high couture side of things, being more of a contemporary style kind of gal…and I only started blogging this year. But anyway, so many of these coveted styles this year are out of the reach of a lot of people, and many turn to Etsy to support the up-and-coming underdogs. I always run over there every now and then when I feel overly stimulated with the commercial side of things, and I found a real gem this time!
I can’t remember exactly how I stumbled across this cool little shop based in Israel, but it sure has stuck with me. I usually prefer bags made out of leather due to longevity and the beautiful way they age and become more and more unique based on the use you give them over the years. Leather can certainly be embossed and stamped, but in this case, these PVC clutches and bags by Etsy shop MeDusaBrand seem to be more beautifully detailed than most leather embossed items could ever be! And of course, who doesn’t like shiny things?
It appears that each style seen here (I tried to get a good, wide range of these different clutch and bag designs offered) comes in just about any color, and they are lined with a leather-like synthetic fabric inside. Some come with chains as straps and others are meant to just be carried…and some are even transparent, as a small shoulder or makeup bag!
MeDusaBrand also makes pretty jewelry, specifically necklaces and earrings, some combining chains and studs like the handbags, or tassels. I gotta say these black items in the Black Summer Collection caught my eye as well. Yummy! I wanted to make this post longer than it is, because there are so many beautiful items…but you’ll have to go look for yourself.
The beauty of many Etsy shops is these highly-talented independent artists are more than happy to do custom orders for you, and MeDusaBrand is one of them. I don’t see how I could possibly think of something else I’d rather have after perusing this huge collection but…you never know and it’s cool to have that option, right? It makes the consumer feel closer to the artist, which I really respect, and it’s special to have that unique item made just for you.
