Kitsch, quirk and extreme literalness are accessories trends that have survived through multiple seasons and only seem to be gaining steam among both designers and consumers. Mostly these ideas manifest themselves in things that are charming or nostalgic, but it's a very fine line to cross between a cute and cartoonish Fendi Bag Bug and, well, the bags below. They all feel at least a little odd to me in some way, from disembodied, reaching hands to a stuffed bear bag that looks like it would sneak into bed with you in the middle of the night. They're all sure to turn heads, but the attention you get may not be exactly the kind you were looking for.
Benedetta Bruzziches Carmen Quilted Clutch
$1,235 via LUISAVIAROMA
Just what I've always wanted: a hand reaching up from beyond the grave to keep my clutch closed.
Charlotte Olympia Eye Want You Perspex Clutch
$1,995 via Net-a-Porter
The thought of carrying around a big, shiny eye for an evening squicks me out, but I also don't like putting contacts in.
Charlotte Olympia Hold Me Pandora Perspex Clutch
$1,395 via Net-a-Porter
For this one, it's not the ghost hand reach-around that gets me so much as the big, white cuticles.
Ernesto Esposito Hillary Bag
$344 via LUISAVIAROMA
Why does she only have one eye? Industrial accident?
Fendi Monster Tote
$1,350 via Saks
This bag looks like it wants to give you its opinion on your political beliefs whether you want to hear it or not.
Givenchy Madonna and Flower Printed Pouch
$775 via LUISAVIAROMA
Horror movies have spent so many decades co-opting Catholic imagery that I'm pretty sure this clutch comes with a free exorcism coupon booklet.
Ines Figaredo Eyes Bucket Bag
$2,285 via LUISAVIAROMA
Not only are there eyes on this bag, but they're realistic and three-dimensional. It can look at you no matter where you're standing.
Ines Figaredo Graphite Hamlet Clutch
$3,485 via LUISAVIAROMA
Oh, it's a Shakespeare reference and not just a skull with a strap attached to it? Well why didn't you say so?
Ines Figaredo Small Girl Face Clutch
$2,618 via LUISAVIAROMA
I wonder what dear Ines' apartment looks like, but I don't want to find out by actually going to it.
Leo Gig Robot Clutch
$205 via LUISAVIAROMA
The robot on this clutch is here to infiltrate society and enslave the human race from within.
Les Petit Joueurs Limited Edition Andy Eye Candy Clutch
$833 via LUISAVIAROMA
We need to examine the kinds of choices we're making as a consumer base if so many brands are still making giant eye bags.
Prada Mink Cat Bag
$3,250 via Bergdorf Goodman
I'm getting "scared owl" from this bag instead of "luxury cat," but your results may vary.
Roberto Cavalli Suede Panther Clutch
$1,295 via LUISAVIAROMA
This guy doesn't look like he wants to cuddle.
Stella McCartney Super Hero Tote
$995 via Bergdorf Goodman
I'd argue that this would be more accurately termed a Super Villain Tote, because this dude doesn't look like he's about to rescue anyone from a burning building.
