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.
