!! OMG why not wear it? Paolo Puck’s Toad Purse & other bizarre accessories !!

Paolo Puck Toad PurseSince I started doing this column, friends have slid into my DMs with an array of examples of *the* most wonderfully batshit apparel and accessories I’ve ever seen.

As the holidays approach, I’m meditating on these messages to start my seasonal sartorial wish list. You know I loved the JW Anderson Pigeon purse; but I’d take any of these lewks under the tree, too!

Let’s begin with a positively spellbinding hand-painted Toad bag by Paolo Puck. Initially my pal had sent me Puck’s Pickle purse because I love me a gherkin and even more so if it’s rendered as a fashion item, but alas, it’s not for sale. This lil’ cartoonish leaper is a sufficiently surreal substitute.

After the jump, we can move along to Imran Potato’s rapturously repellent Rat shoes, which were posted on IG the other week and swiftly became a bonafide pair of #hypebaekicks.

What wish list would be complete without Paris-based designer Bilel Choutri’s Organik glasses, fabricated from rubber and ready to stun in the sun.

Of course it’s always nice to dream about warmer weather at this time; inspiration would certainly strike if I had Isa Boulder’s exclusive-to-Ssense Bouncy Beach hat as my thinking cap.

For formal occasions when the Toad purse won’t do, how I would love to reach for Puppets and Puppets’ bananas Banana bag.

And for times when I want my earlobes to do the talking, Y/Project’s Fuck U single earring leaves little to the imagination.

Finally, something that’s been on my mind for a while: Martina Kocianova’s The Lovers ring.

A freakish blend of materials including Cherry Quartz, cold enamel and recon stone adorned with semi-precious stones, tiny rubies and synthetic opals, this bonkers bling could only be crafted by a pal of fellow fantastic Slovak creative Mata Durkovic of Mad By Mad.

OMG, why not wear it? is our column for fashion lovers who are up for anything. It is an inspiration point, a place for dreaming, and a discussion of beauty, weirdness, and thought-provoking design moments as forms of connection. Written by Odessa Paloma Parker (@odessapaloma)
