Fashion is as important a cultural aspect as fine arts and literature. It offers a reflection of the times we are living in and our collective mood. For example, during the core lockdown months of 2020 when the world was reeling under surging Covid-19 cases, fashion presentations from the world over reflected the grim mood and the mundaneness of staying in isolation, at home.

When the world started to take slow and gradual steps toward a new normal, we saw a splash of colours, experimentation with silhouettes, and a comeback of glimmer which signified hope and optimism for a better future. We also saw designers pushing limits and venturing into the arbitrary, abstract, and surreal, as evident in some of the accessories we have seen of late.

But, eccentric and artistic fashion accessories have been a staple that keeps surfacing in collections from design houses around the world, leaving us perplexed and questioning whether we can ever really understand fashion and its myriad trends.

Here are some of the most bizarre handbags which blur the lines between art, daily objects, and fashion accessories.

This hamburger-imitating handbag is unbelievably close to the real ones. It’s sequined, which means it is the perfect arm candy for every party to turn every head.

Lizzo really brought that bag with that outfit to the AMAs in 2019. The humour of this ensemble, a big, ruffled, flirty Valentino custom one-shoulder dress with that tiny bag, also Valentino, no bigger than a centimeter is highly impressive.
