I've just discovered these incredible bags by Italian designer, Carla Braccialini. The bags pictured are from the main range, but there's also a diffusion line - Tua Braccialini - and some very cute Looney Tunes bags too. There's a Braccialini shop in London, one coming soon to New York, and they're dotted around Europe and Asia too (see the website for a full list of stockists).

If you like your bags quirky (or, indeed, completely mad) rather than classy, you can buy some of the more tame Braccialini bags at Yoox.
