Uncommon Threads




Fashion, design and function — all wrapped up in a bag. Manchester artist Lisa Occhipinti has created the Oona Coco line of handbags with a palette, composition and process common to her paintings. Each bag, from wristlet to large day bag, is created individually from unique fabrics and pieced together much like her collaged paintings. Color and texture combinations are sophisticated instead of predictable. Beads, vintage buttons or hand-painted wood medallions add a final touch. Like couture, it is all about customization and detail. The bags, her wearable art, are a bit of beauty for life on the go. — Susan Laughlin $34-$148 Oona Coco Handbags (603) 512-0217 www.oonacoco.com Also available at Alapage, Bedford, and the Carriage House gift shop at the Bedford Village Inn Lisa Occhipinti (aka Oona Coco) models one of her larger day bags. $148 An Occhipinti painting hangs in the background.
