Sarah’s Bag Accessories “The fast & the fabulous”, F/W 2014-2015

In its latest collection, Sarah’s Bags continues its unabashed love story with 60s and 70s pop culture nostalgia.

‘The Fast and the Fabulous’ is a funky line of printed clutches, box clutches and totes inspired by the golden years of pre-war Beirut in the early 70s, vintage MatchBox toy cars and Michel Vaillant comic book series of the same era. The latter include bags with signature Sarah’s Bag beading on an eye-popping comic book canvas.

For Creative Director and Founder, Sarah Beydoun, a handbag is like a blank canvas that can always be turned into a piece of wearable pop art: “I like to find inspiration in the most unexpected places, and pop culture is such a rich resource. I like combining that with the traditional intricate handwork that our artisans, all of whom are prisoners and ex-prisoners, are known for. These two elements come together to create truly unique pieces that are both fun, beautifully made and that empower underprivileged women”.

Every piece of this collection will have a groovy vintage 70s model toy car as a clasp. Beydoun laughs: “That was probably the most challenging part of creating this collection! Finding typical 70s model cars! We wanted to remain true to our theme and make every handbag a one of a kind piece!”
