Elefante Handbag from Arnoldo & Battois

Elefante from Arnaldo and Battois

Manolo says, it is not often the Manolo features the handbag, but sometimes the object is so striking and unusual that the Manolo cannot resist. Such is the case with the Elefante handbag from Arnoldo & Battois, the two young Italian designers.

This shape is so out of the ordinary, so organically pachydermish, that it literally made the Manolo do the double take when he came across it. It is not exactly beautiful, but rather it is arresting.

And, no, it is not for every taste. Such the item would most likely only work for the bohemian, downtown girl. It is too scary for the ladies who luncheon.

And now, the Manolo asks, would you carry it?
