Leslie Oschmann is giving new (and quite literal) meaning to the term “wearable art.” Her latest range of shoulder bags are made from vintage oil paintings, which the Amsterdam-based designer salvages from markets and auction houses in Holland and Belgium. But I like to think they come from the homes of old people with really awful taste in art. I can already visualize tossing a few deer scenes from Grandmom’s over my shoulder. And then when my fresh new bag is not in use, I can hang it on the wall and make funny faces at it, just like the good old days.
