Practical flowers: Rachel F's purses

Rachel Fortin has been creating accessories since 2004. Bags, jewelery, coats, hats, made out of fur or vintage leather, see the light of day from her workshop based in Montréal's Hochelaga neighborhood.

In honor of a love-affair with Montréal's streets, her handbags for this spring/summer of season bear names like "St Germain," "Préfontaine," and "Sainte-Catherine." We fell head-over-heels over the last one, pictured above.

Her signature flower? Black and white roses that can go with almost anything. If that's not practical, I don't know what is.
Sac Sainte-Catherine: 75$
