Patricia Smith Moon Bag

Graphics on bags and purses are seeing a revival now (cue Prada, LV). For something a little different, I just love this 1980s Patricia Smith Moon Bag (Milwaukee, WI). Artist Patricia Smith designed the panels herself; each panel is covered in resin and is detachable for interchange with panels from other bags (not that I have any others in order to do that). I like motifs and this one has a irresistable graphic of a butterfly flying with the moon in the bacground. Love the soft maroon leather and how the strap can be kept for this to be used as a clutch.
