During NYFW, Brooklyn Industries released their first limited edition handbag for Spring 2012 in a series of seasonal signature handbag releases. Made right in Brooklyn, this hand painted custom bag was designed to directly reflect the themes present in J. G. Ballard's 1979 novel, Crash. Resembling the twisted metal remnants of a highway crash, but also symbolizing the collision of humanity and technology, the effects of modernity, fused with eroticism are represented by the combination of high end materials and heavy duty industrial fabric used to create the bag.
The artistic craftsmanship of the leather details are layered on top of the hand painted industrial linen to create a bag rooted in the Pop concept. The Crash Bag is available online on BrooklynIndustries.com or at Brooklyn Industries locations nationwide. Check out their Philadelphia location on 1525 Walnut Street.
