When I first saw this equestrian themed handbag, I thought it was a joke. Especially when I saw the price. $4,000 to carry a facsimile of an equestrian helmet? I doubt it’s even ASTM certified.
I do like the details. The strap looks like a chin strap and the buckles look like equestrian hardware.
Perhaps, maybe I should start carrying one of my old helmets around. I could add a nice drawstring liner, use some reins to make it a cross body, and either be the height of fashion or a laughing stock. I guess it all depends on the context. I can see doing this for a school project, where you’re asked to turn an every day item into an item of apparel. I need to look more carefully at my tackroom to see if there’s anything else that can be transformed into haute couture.
For those who don’t want to go with black leather, Gucci also offers an equestrian helmet . . . oops, I mean handbag, in their iconic print.
