I was at the Architectural Digest Design Show a few weeks ago, cutting through one booth on the way to another booth, when I noticed that someone had left this totally sick Fuchsia Pink Crocodile Hermes Bag completely unattended — which is insane, because regardless of what’s inside it, this bag alone is worth as much as a car. But what caught my attention even more than the bag’s awesome pinkness, was this hilarious caricature of designer-god Karl Lagerfeld, rendered in vinyl and rabbit fur, and hanging from the purse’s strap by a key ring.

Oh Karl, how cute are you?

Casting and plating the objects in unlikely materials — resin, plaster, platinum, silicone and copper — Shelter Serra strips them of their intended functionality. He highlights their underlying cultural symbolism and transforms branded products into objects of aesthetic contemplation, offering a new perspective on materialism in today’s society. Serra states, “refining an aesthetic and making beautiful objects, whether that be a dress, bag or sculpture is a celebration of pure creativity and personal vision.”
