Pick of the Week: Melissa 'Corallo' bag by Campana brothers

Corallo Bag- Black

I just came back from Buenos Aires, where I stayed in a hip neighborhood called Palermo Soho. The name is apropos since it has a nice mix of grittiness and sophistication, just like the Soho in lower Manhattan.  

Several murals and random jots of graffiti were eye-popping fun and totally inspiring.

This week it’s all about '80s, neon and graffiti-inspired pieces.

Today I'm loving the Melissa “Corallo” bag, which is the swirly plastic result of a collaboration between Brazilian brand Melissa and furniture designer brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana.

The effect of the wirey looking plastic is graphic and mesmerizing, which reminds me of all the wall art I saw in my travels.

The bag is made from 30% recycled PVC and a portion of the proceeds support Visao Mundial de Recife, an organization that supports children living in poverty in Brazil.
