Handbags that Light Up when Opened

Handbags To Light Up Your Life
by Amanda Gore

Solas Fashion 'inspired by the healing powers of light and colour' have produced handbags that light up when open. An idea born from not being able to find her keys at night, creator Kara Kurcz decided to incorporate a neon light into the frame of her bags.

Combining design and functionality with spirituality the bags come in a range of styles and choice of light colour- orange for 'sensual healing', yellow for 'self esteem', purple for 'self reflection' etc. It may sound like just a gimmick, but it's one that many girls in the US are already embracing- the bags have been seen in most of the gossip magazines, thanks mainly to celebrity endorsement from the likes of Vanessa Manillo, Scarlett Johansson and Cameron Diaz.

The cheesy blurb on the site states- "Our symbol represents the four elements; Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. Every clutch comes with a detatchable charm that will help motivate your day and inspire your life". The claims may be grandiose, but that's not deterring the customers- nor are the clever multi-functionality ideas including detachable straps that double as necklaces and wallets that become evening clutches- the newest styles are already on back order.
