Can't touch this.

Here at Untouchable, you'll find pretty decent writing, heartfelt reviews, tried-and-true outfits, Op-Eds (mostly griping about the fashion industry), essays ("Hell is other people" is pretty much my motto), and whatever else finds its way here. Thanks for coming by, and please keep hands and feet inside until the ride stops.

For Your Interiors Or Your Bag, A Little Structure Is A Good Thing

For Your Interiors Or Your Bag, A Little Structure Is A Good Thing

One of Boston's best bag designers just so happens to also be one of Boston's best interior designers. Meichi Peng has been doing it all for over a decade now, curating perfectly balanced residential and commercial interiors and designing a concise but growing line of handmade bags from her perch in Boston's arts-centric SoWa.

Much like more mainstream luxury designers such as Dior, Stella McCartney and Celine, Peng has curated a line centered around year-round core models that are available in several sizes, colors, and materials. But, unlike the bigger design houses, Peng bags are hand-stitched in small batches. Translation: They're tres exclusive. Aside from the e-shop, they're only available at Meichi Peng in Boston, and Nuages in Aspen.

There's plenty of cross-over from Peng's studied but cheerful interior design aesthetic, evidenced in the clean lines and bright, earthy colors of the minimalist bags. Speaking of minimalism, each design has a number, not a name, making them sound more like Secret Agents than ultra-luxe handbags.

Oh, and in case you're wondering - they feel exactly as buttery as they look.

Peng Bag No. 16, from $1500. This bag has a suede-lined pocket, just right for a cell phone and some business cards, right between the two straps on the inside of the bag, making it hidden but super easy to slip into. Cue my delighted gasp when I "discovered" it... 

Accessories, $120-$225
