Item of the Day: Kent Stetson

In Item of the Day, What's New by Lauren Parker

Kent FW 2015 _Page_09Truth: Some people don’t eat doughnuts. Something silly about fat, calories, sugar, tooth decay…diabetes.

WE, of course, are highly suspicious of such people, and prefer to live on the edge. Plus, we never saw a doughnut we didn’t like, especially when it’s photo printed on a clutch handbag!

This striking leather bag by Kent Stetson is just one in a serious of photo real prints–from sushi to snakes to scrabble boards–but certainly the one that makes our mouth water the most.

“In 2003, as a framing experiment, I presented one of my digital paintings as a handbag, and have since made bags for collectors throughout the world,” says Stetson. “I hope that by blurring the line between art and fashion I can in some small way inspire people to live beautifully.”

Amen. And pass the doughnuts.
