If there was ever a fashion item that was an investment piece, this must be it. Pamela Love added ‘handbag designer’ to her resume when she created this collection for The List – Revolve Clothing’s boutique-within-a-boutique of exclusive, limited edition, one-of-a-kind (you get the drift) objects. The collection consists of 1920’s inspired oh-so-rocker chic flapper purses made entirely out of metal.
