fleabags

The everyday clutch is an undervalued thing. But consider how nice it would be to have this streamlined one from Fleabags that you could toss everything into—book, iPad, shades, whatever—and just go. Throw it in a carry-all for a long weekend, grab it for a Saturday stroll when you don’t want to lug around all the crap you haul M-F, or think of it as a big-girl version of the Hello Kitty pencil case you treasured all through middle school. Handy, no? —erica

according the refinery29, the latest collab on the block features vpl and fleabags. yes, the edgy purveyor of underwear-to-outerwear has teamed up with the eco-friendly handbag brand on a line of vegan-leather carryalls for spring 2013. each of the four styles shown will be available in two colorways this upcoming spring.

Check out this rad brand from Brooklyn called Fleabags. The ALICE bag is from their Spring/Summer 2012 campaign and was made with recycled fishing net. These bootstrapping ladies were inspired by an NPR story about a fisherman who was affected by the BP oil spill and had a bunch of excess net he couldn’t use, so the girls tracked him down and voila the ALICE bag was born.

MOTTO: Fleabags strives to create products that are as green as possible while maintaining high quality and covetable design. Fleabags are made with organic and vintage materials, vegetable-tanned and re-purposed leathers, and other parts all sourced in the USA. All silkscreens use water-based ink. Fleabags are made in the USA with good old-fashioned sewing.

Thanks to Refinery29 for this tip.

Dead Letters (2014)   //   Boom! Studios

"Waking up in a fleabag motel with bandaged arms and a revolver on his desk, Sam doesn’t remember a thing - not how he got here, where here is, or who he is. But the armed men knocking on his door do and Sam will have to use every trick from his forgotten repertoire to outrun and outsmart his way through a hardboiled wonderland of gang wars, femme fatales and big secrets."
