Vlad got me into the hit television show CSI. We watch the Vegas version, NYC version, and at some times attempt to take in the Miami version (just for Horatio’s slow sunglasses removal technique). No matter how outrageous the CSI lab techniques seem, I am always intrigued. And one of the most integral parts of solving a crime is finding finger prints.
I wonder if the folks at Yves Saint Laurent are CSI fanatics as well? The Yves Saint Laurent Fingerprint Flap Bag is a clever and fun take on science and handbags.
The body of the bag is canvas with large black finger prints all over. Feel like this idea is out of place? It is not. In fact, Stefano Pilati sent a dress in this very same print down the Paris runway as well. The shoulder strap is adjustable and the hardware is golden.
At first I planned to just cover this bag as a novelty item, but it is growing on me. There is something fun and playful about the design yet it is still wearable. Pre-order via Neiman Marcus for $1,650.
