This wearable sculpture/bag is a masterpiece of impeccable craftsmanship and unparalleled creativity that exemplifies the iCONS+ series. The bag is expertly crafted from vert-tendre hand-boarded Madras vegetable-tanned goatskin and meticulously adorned with intricate details that pay homage to the iconic Lamborghini Countach LP400 1974.


The bag features a detachable visor with a printed windshield wiper, two scissor doors, four detachable wheels, dramatic tail lights, and a set of aerodynamic spoilers that are inspired by the legendary car. The padded front pocket flap adds to the unique design with covered pop-up headlights and side/parking lights that perfectly emulate the car's front hood design.


Adding to the bag's charm are the pair of hand-polished, mirror-finished 316L stainless steel 'hands' in the form of a Morningstar (right)- a signature emblem of the iCONS+ series. Each hand has an iconic scissor door and a detachable wheel, which add a delightful touch of whimsy to the piece.


The bag is secured with a smooth Raccagni silver-tone zipper and comes with a pocket with an invisible magnetic closure at the front. The interior of the bag is fully lined in electric blue recycled cotton twill and has a small goatskin patch pocket. The artisan mark “E” and year of production mark “A” are stamped on the back of the right zipper stopper.


This versatile bag can be worn as a crossbody or shoulder bag with a single shoulder strap, or as a backpack with double shoulder straps. Alternatively, it can also be displayed as a stunning art object, showcasing the intricate details and imaginative design that make this piece truly exceptional.

I don’t drive. The last time I was behind the wheel was the day I passed my driving test in Hamilton, Canada in 2000. Driving is just not something I have never been fond of, but I LOVE cars. I think it is because when I was a child my dad would give me a Tomica model car (a line of die-cast toy vehicles produced since 1970 by Takara Tomy Co. of Japan) every time he came back from a business trip or whenever I was throwing a major tantrum. I had hundreds of them but there’s one car I treasured the most. It was a 1:58 green vintage 1979 Tomy Tomica Dome-O No.46 sport car modeled after Lamborghini Countach LP400 1974.


The Lamborghini Countach was love at first sight. The elegant mix of angular lines, sexy curves, and novel proportions make this exotic work of art so enduringly spectacular. Named after an exclamation of astonishment in the Italian Piedmontese dialect that loosely translates to "wow," "my goodness," or something more vulgar like "holy shit," and pronounced "Coon-tosh," the scissor-doored, trapezoidal Lamborghini Countach is one of the very few Lamborghini models whose name is not related to bullfighting. Originally unveiled as the Lamborghini LP500 concept at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show, the development of the Countach was initiated by Ferruccio Lamborghini with the aim of creating a successor to its Miura and to compete against other sports car manufacturers' models in the market, including Ferrari's Daytona. By 1974, the Countach entered production as the LP400. "LP" is an abbreviation of the Italian "longitudinale posteriore," meaning "longitudinal rear." This refers to the engine orientation and placement shared by all Countach models.Though it was never remarkable in commercial terms, with fewer than 2000 made in 16 years from 1974 to 1990, the revolutionary LP400 and its prototypes, designed by the legendary designer Marcello Gandini of Bertone design studio, laid the foundation for Lamborghini's reputation today.


Forbidden Fruit is a homage to one of three prototypes Lamborghini created prior to the LP400 production model- The second Countach prototype (chassis number 1120001) shown at the 1973 Paris Motor Show. This work, which was almost entirely constructed in Verde green French goatskin, features the iconic scissor doors, four detachable wheels, one removable windshield, rear-wings, and a license plated screen printed “MG112”. “MG” is an abbreviation of LP400, LP500 Countach designer Marcello Gandini, while “112” was the product number initially assigned to the creation of the Countach. Lamborghini Countach LP400 to me is what childhood dreams are made of. It is a forbidden fruit of sorts - something that is made more desirable by its own absence.
