Bags: Our Lord & Saviour S/S 11

1-icons

Style Icons like Kate Lanphear were already carrying the cult-clutches last season, now New York luxury handbag label Our Lord & Saviour returns with its second collection keeping its emphasis on sophisticated classic shapes with subtle touches of its acclaimed controversial Christian iconography.

Olympus Teneo,” the brands signature clutch, featuring its famed crucifix, is resurrected in a neutral palette of natural, black, and bone. This season the clutch is available in polished black box calfskin and a new exotic skin, a beautifully marked ring lizard. For evening the clutch is also carefully executed in a chainmail silver python, adding a bit of restrained flare, which drew inspiration from the amour of the Crusades.

The last time I was super-excited about a handbag was in 2003 (it was Dior`s Koi Saddle Bag) and I already feared I had lost my ability to be thrilled about something until I recently discovered Our Lord & Saviour`s divine Olympus Teneo clutches.
I`m blown away by the classic, sophisticated design and the depth of the iconography. Jesus sacrificing his life for our salvation was the biggest grace mankind has ever received - this highest of all possible sacrifices embodied in luxurious design and finest materials just knocks me off the hook!

THIS IS MY NEW FAVOURITE BAG E-V-E-R !!!

Oh dear! I find them a bit sacrilegious. They do seem perfect for Madonna though.

@Heather: I see no difference in wearing a crucifix on a necklace or on a handbag.

I don't really like this purse but I don't like crucifixes in general

Sorry, but I don't like these handbags. I think a simple cross would be enough.

I agree with Heather, it`s not everyone`s cuppa, but looks perfect for Madonna.
