Chicago artist Brian T. O'Rourke has turned his pieces into a limited edition accessories collection.
The purses feature 27 of O'Rourke artworks, which have been sold in department stores and to private collectors. The range of prints is diverse, so whether you're attracted to vibrant and innovative looks or more subdued designs you should find something to suit. The collection features seven different handbag styles including a clutch, some wallets, and a tote large enough to hold a laptop. Each features an original O'Rourke artwork printed on microfiber and complemented by plush leather accents. Their limited edition status is guaranteed with a numbered certificate signed personally by Brian T. O'Rourke.
O'Rourke's bags have only just hit stores but they've already become popular amongst the women from Bravo's The Real Housewives franchise. And hopefully in time he may be able to attract celebrities with a bit more credibility!
However it doesn't seem O'Rourke minds too much who's admiring his purses. He says he's "thrilled" by the public's response.
"While I've always been proud of my artwork, I'm especially excited about this new venture and the opportunity for people to be able to wear my artwork," he said.
The Brian T. O’Rourke accessories are available now from the artist's website for between $95 and $555.
