Brass Knuckles Purse Would Probably Give Me A Black Eye

I’m not saying I’m a misogynist, but I can’t help but feel traitorous with respect to my sex for posting this brass knuckle inspired “Punch-Bag.” I’m sure a woman who would use this on an ungentlemanly man would have good reason, but I can only hope the knuckles themselves are as plastic as the bag.  For those interested in the odd textile, it’s a laser-sintered polyamide formed into mobius-like links that chain together.

    I love it. I thought of 3 people instantly that I know would buy the large one asap. (If it wasn’t $533.47 though…) Hell for that much the handle should be removable for use! Ouch!

    not keen on the juxtaposition of weapons within design, either from starck lamps to brass knuckle mugs. it adds to the glamourisation of the dark side of society. im sure this is just a laugh, but tell that to someone who has been mugged recently.

      I agree that glamorizing violence takes away it’s reality of senseless harm, but there are different degrees…
      In movies and TV it’s all about glamorizing it. However in fashion it’s inanimate presence on a shirt, or bag leaves the viewer with a reminder. Not that it’s to be “cool,” but that we are surrounded by violence. Instead of playing “out of sight, out of mind” with life’s dangers, we’re more likely to do something about it with a constant reminder of the suffering it has brought. Why ignore that?
      In fashion it’s designed to make a statement (and therefore makes money.) However on TV and in movies it’s designed to make money (and therefore makes money.) Big difference in the intentions to me.
