wow! thanks!!!!! honestly, shoes really are not my thing....im really a bag girl! that being said, and the powers that are now bestowed upon me to challenge your minds with some sort of theme ....let me see.....

"Accessories-R'-US" (hahaha, thought i'd make up some goofy name)
Round #2:

THEME: ~FILM NOIR~

BRIEF:
> Film Noir.....french cinema, those eyes, those deep black lined lips, VAMP! SEDUCTRESS! MURDERESS! And what do they carry their lil' secrets in? The challenge is to design a handbag for the Film Noir vixen. Think about the negative space created in still shots from old hollywood films. Be inspired by shadows and sex appeal. Think about that "IT" bag that would be sitting on the bar top in Casablanca, slightly hazed by the cigarette smoke, reflecting the lights of the stage show. Create something seducing, something vintage, something that would steal the show from Ingrid Bergman!<

ACCESSORY TYPE:
HANDBAG

REMARKS:
> The brief above is just to provide a little inspiration for all ... interpret the keyword (i.e. the theme) based on your own likes.
> I'm limiting this brief to just one accessory type because it would be unfair to judge different accessories together since each has their own criteria for judging.

SUBMISSION TIME:
> By next Wednesday, which is 11th October 2006 12midnight

Here´s my entry.
The pink is soft fabric, the darker red is leather, the gold is hard/metaly(my englisch isn't that good, but I mean that the gold is just gold) and the lock is a film strip.
Oh, and I made a pocker for the long, elegant sigarets



ps, I'm sorry my scanner isn't so good.. It makes the pink turn white in some places...

here's mine sorry for the delay...I had it drawn out and I kinda had no time to color it until now...it's made of a semi-slouchy Off-white Cowhide that's almost has a vintage/distressed look, but the hardware is very shiny and new...a contrast I kinda like...

so here's mine... Film Noir Satchel...

okay...here we go. i needed sleep last nite, so i'm a lil late...i have a drawing project i have a deadline for *blah* hope im not too harsh in my critiques....

Vogue addiction : i like the vintage feel of your design. it has chanel referances, but you made it your own with the art nouveau style handle, and the clever use of the film strip in the front. i like that you used the film strip idea, thats something i never would have thought of, but works in a dior-type of way. i think i may have liked to see the cigarette holder as an attatched key-ring sort of thing or on the inside of the bag, as it looks a bit out of place right there on the front. i find the juxtaposition of red leather and pink fabric interesting....i think if you played with this idea a little more, you could really come out with an interesting bag. The one thing i would try to work on would be an overall continuity amongst the different features on the bag. I see the vintage chanel refereance, the art nouveau style in the handle and then the cigarette holder which shows that you really thought about the theme and things that are prominant in things relative to what the theme was. The thing to work on would to be to bring all of these aspects and make them your own.

Khoipond89 : very nice drafting skills! i like the idea of shiny hardware contrasting with distressed leather. however, i dont get a real film noire feel to it. It reminds me a bit of the marc by marc jacobs washed satchels, and while i think it is a cool design on it's own, i dont feel that the color or use of vintage leather really fits into the theme the way i was looking for. the shape of the bag and the details are REALLY interesting, but im not sure what about it would directly tie into the film noire theme.

i wish we would have had more entries....i guess better luck next time......

im trying to be honest here, like in a formal critique, so please dont take what i say personally, they are just my honest critiques on the pieces....

and so this weeks winner is..............................

..........................................

............................*VOGUE ADDICTION*..............................

althouh i think there are some minor things to work on as far as development goes, you really came up with a unique idea and it was well thought out according to the theme i gave. i could see this in a movie, and the fact that you did it in pink and red, would show up really nice in black and white....congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
