"Carry a rad boombox without the D batteries."
Boombox serenades: they work every time.
What is it about the old boombox that has inspired the creation of so many rad retro bags and purses? The chunky, boxy, busy look of the original boomboxes is certainly different than most purses. Instead of trying to compliment an outfit, it makes the outfit. Along with 80′s fashion, the 80′s boombox has made a comeback with it’s bright colors and geometric shapes. Outside of these 2 factors, you’ll find purses in a wide variety of styles. They range from tiny handbags to life-size tote bags and can be made from just a bit of vinyl or feature real speakers that connect to your iPod. Whether you want classic black & silver or a more trendy color like a pink boombox, we’ve got you covered.
Some very creative people have even made hand-silkscreened boombox briefcase, DIY iPod-ready beach tote, and a bag that’s actually made from a vintage boombox! With celebrities seen wearing these purses, the iconic boom box has also gotten some more style mileage. Boombox necklaces, belt buckles, trucker hats, and other accessories have also paid tribute to the ghetto blaster.
