Last month in Food Meets Fashion, we explored the ever-growing trend of cakes made to look like purses. That research uncovered a reverse line of thinking: purses inspired by food. For those who enjoy wearing their favorite food, designers large and small have a treat for you. Betsey Johnson, Kate Spade, and Nasty Gal all take inspiration from dishes. Then, of course, there are lesser-known but also talented designers on Etsy that fix home-crafted delights. Here are 16 adorable food purses, perfect for both savory and sweet fashionistas.
