Entry Description

This special and dynamic minaudiere was inspired by the nostalgia and fantasy of a snow globe. Reinterpreted into a functional object, the Globe Bag transforms a minaudiere into a conversation piece that is reminiscent of childhood memories. Historically, globes were popular during the Victorian era and have since been highly collectable. Fashion accessories are a form of expression, they not only serve a practical function to hold and transport personal items, but they also convey an impression about the person who carries it. This reinterpretation of a childhood favorite keeps the young spirit in all of us alive. For customization, there is a 4”x6” image slot for family photos or postcards on either side of the frame for a more personal touch. When tilted or moved, the oil or glitter encased in the lumens impart motion for a unique visual experience. The Globe Bag is a patented design (U.S Patent #US 2013/0299051 A1) perspex box clutch with decorative material suspended in a shell with contained liquid. It features a hinged bottom with magnetic closure at the top, a removable pouch to hold essentials and is embellished with a crystal clasp and chain link gusset chain. The Glitter Globes are USD $395.
