A fine Italian leather bag adorned with a classic children’s toy. Hmm…Let’s file this one under: so weirdly kitsch it’s kind of cool. Le Petit Joueurs, meaning “little players,” is a line of bags designed by Mariasole Cecchi. She created her first bag with – you guessed it – a big box of Legos next to her, and she’s been expanding the concept since (you can also choose among a skewed leopard print and piano keyboard design). The make-no-mistake Piet Mondrian grid has been given a bizarre totally eighties twist via primary colored Legos. While it’s a surefire way to bring color-blocking into your bag wardrobe, as well as touches of the eternally inspirational painter, I’m not so sure this isn’t more slob than snob. The black suede bag is handmade in Cecchi’s hometown of Florence, so it’s a toy with real workmanship behind it. The question is: do you think the playthings should be left to the tots? On Aha Life for $995.
Pair with: Only a fully-grown woman could truly pull off Vivienne Westwood, a designer who herself refuses to grow up. Her Red Label white seersucker-cotton dress is tailored for a lady but has apron-like touches that appeal to your inner child. On Net-a-Porter for $795.
