Drawing inspiration from the popular tri-coloured carry-all bags, designer Marylene Lichtenstern has reworked the sturdy material to create a range of trendy handbags and umbrellas under the title Marylene. 'I often saw the bags on the street, and I thought I could reinvent them and make something young and cool,' says Lichtenstern. Small bags (right) cost $400, large $600 and the umbrellas $500. The products are available at Habitus The Grocery Designer Shop, 3/F, Western Market, Sheung Wan, tel: 2973 0231
