I am a bag lady. Be they fancy bags, practical bags, work bags, silly bags, travel bags or shopping bags, I love them. And I first saw these kooky handbags on sale at Fab.com. Dutch designer Sylvia Krens created the Hi-Di-Hi range of bags in striking styles that highlight individuality and, most importantly, spark conversations. Yep, I’m pretty sure these are going to be conversation starters – or stoppers…
The pics of these Winky cross-body bags are from Fab.com, which featured them in a recent sale. They come in a range of bright colours and, as the name suggests, the hologram eye appears to open and close when the bag moves. Be warned that your bag will be winking at everyone that you pass on the street. Which may work in your favour, or may result in you getting slapped. Please take care.
The winking eyes made me curious, so I checked out the Hi-Di-Hi website, and was delighted to discover more wacky accessories there. Like these Birdy Shopper bags, designed to look as though you’re carrying around a bird in a nest. Granted, the ‘nest’ in this image is made of faux fur, which is a little confusing, but it somehow works.
Or there’s this funky Home Sweet Home, which features a cute little bird stuck in a cut-out hole, like a cuckoo. Only cuter.
Then there are colourful bags with butterflies, flowers, babies, and even hoodies to customise your backpack as your mood changes – from Little Red Riding Hood to a dragon, elf or robot.
These pics are all from the Hi-Di-Hi website, which is well worth a look. You can check it out here.

Love the birdy – how fun are they:-)
Glad you like them! There are a lot of fun things on the website, well worth a look 🙂
The winking eye bag falls under my favourite “how did they think of that?”… 🙂
I know, it’s pretty bizarre, hey? It would certainly get noticed… 😉
And there is a U.S. site with additional designs too!
Hi Bridget, thanks for stopping by – and thanks for sharing the link to the US website…I’m excited! I love your work at Hi-Di-Hi – checking out the US website now… 🙂
