A fierce accessory worthy of any fashion warrior, Dafne Balatsos’ The Stud-Ball Bag–nicknamed “the exploding bomb” handbag by many bloggers–recently caught my attention, and inspired the style mood I am currently thriving in.
Designer Dafne Balatsos is a Bay Area native, who settled in LA after studying in New York and Paris; she worked with Rick Owens for over twelve years before breaking out on her own. The designer’s work was quickly snapped-up by her former employer, and are now sold in his boutiques and flagship store in Paris.
Two-inch spikes and a variety of other metal embellishments encrust the small, handmade pouch to make for an intense, weapon-like clutch. Available in black, white or brown, either would complement any tough girl’s wardrobe, and undoubtedly attract admirers across the board.
Thank you corridor40 for this source of inspiration.
