Marjan Petrovski, designer for Empire 33, has incorporated swords into his rich, leather handbags. You may choose West with an American Civil War sword or East with a Japanese Katana sword. I love when weaponry is incorporated into fashion. The only thing missing is the actual blade. It would have been cool if you could press a button and the blade would whip out, sort of like those automatic umbrellas that I find so fascinating. Then you could walk around like you own everyone. Until someone trumps you with a gun. Then you retract your blade and what the meek walk.
