You’re never supposed to pick up a shard of glass with your bare hands, right? A standard rule of thumb and some common sense would tell any person that. However, you can go ahead and dispose of that common sense because Bally has now made it fashionable. The Bally Ponga box-like clutches are little pieces of art and major statements of style. Adorned with a cute little motif for the clasp, these clutches are beautifully crafted with intricate details and yes, actual mirror shards. Others within the collection are a bit more tame, designed with swirls of applique filo rolls and leather sequins.
With the help of some creativity and courage, even the most mundane (and dangerous) objects can become next season’s big trend. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the late Alexander McQueen’s creative team concoct razor blade heels for the fall of 2012. You just wait and see.
