Futuristic is the word

I perviously posted about "Jetson" or Lady Gaga Dresses for the future. I found a really cute bag made by new designer Pauric Sweeney. Here is a article from Elle.

After stints as an architect, a furniture designer, and a ready-to-wear designer, Sweeney began making graphic clutches and purses in 2005, when he relocated from London to a palazzo in Florence to be closer to the tanneries in the area. Mixing up to 10 exotic skins—such as crocodile, alligator, stingray, and calfskin—on one piece, Sweeney created a patchwork of neoprenes and nylons for the Special 16 totes, perfectly in tune with the season’s neon-bright palette. “The colors came out of my subconscious, I think—I am a child of the ’80s, after all,” he says. “But the method and the madness of the pattern mirrors Cage’s volatile but measured sound in Imaginary Landscape No. 4, 1951.” The set includes bubble-gum pink shoulder bags with triangular puzzle-piece embroidery and yummy liquid gold carryalls—a nod to Cage’s futuristic style. “The idea of combining all those textures and colors is chaotic, but I think the overall effect is quite the opposite.” We couldn’t agree more.
