As much as I love a good basic bag, it’s the weird stuff that really gets my blood pumping. Transparency, nontraditional materials, crazy patterns, bold colors, embellishment of almost any kind – sign me up. Naturally, I love the Roy Lichtenstein-inspired 3.1 Phillip Lim Pop Art Bags. Split into two collections within the collection, Bang and The Breakup, the bags feature the bold colors and comic book-style graphics that are typical of Lichtenstein’s world-famous work.

Bags like these target a tiny portion of the buying population, but having already been carried by models and fashion industry heavyweights, the collection is sure to reach its intended audience. Lim has a knack for designing pieces that may not make sense to the general public but cause uncontrollable lust in the fashion-obsessed, and it seems like these bags are just the latest proof. Check out more of the piece after the jump, or shop the 3.1 Phillip Lim The Breakup Pouch, above, for $375 via Net-a-Porter.
