The New Hot-Rod: Porsche's Purses
Not since Elle Woods tooled around in her Legally Blonde Boxster has Porsche had such a fashion moment. Last month, the revered German company launched a singular handbag: The Porsche Design TwinBag.
The Italian calfskin TwinBag is designed with a single piece of calfskin that's hand-stitched, and tanned in an ecologically sensitive way. The bag's name stems from its most clever feature: adjustable handles allow the TwinBag to be worn as either a handbag or a shoulder bag. Fierce fashionistas, rev up your engines!
