Would You Carry A Sheet Metal Bag?

There's some heavy metal on the horizon, and we're not talking about music. Innovative and unforgettable handbag designer Wendy Stevens is dropping jaws with gorgeous sheet-metal-based bags for any occasion. These architectural and sleek designs conjure up images of couture rather than cutlery and pack an edgy yet whimsical one-two punch when paired with any outfit, without weighing you down (literally). Structured clutches and rigid totes look more like works of art than functioning handbags, etched and punched like a vintage tin ceiling. The Envelope Nuevo clutch keeps the classic silhouette in mind, while the Pinwheel Purse turns things on their head with a modern-chic circular shape. We can't wait to get out hands on these but hope we don't get snagged on any sharp edges.
