Here's an innovative and stylish way to make your designer handbag stand out even more—dress it up in couture fashion.

This is the main idea of PurseBop Frocks, a newly launched online shop under the American online hub for all-things luxury handbags, PurseBop.  

As the founder-creative director Monika Arora puts it, "Handbag personalization has taken on forms we could've never imagined... PurseBop Frocks is a celebration of this modern trend.

"We already think of our handbags as extensions of ourselves. Now, let's give them a chance to take center stage..."

There are three kinds of collections to choose from: frocks, capes, and jackets.

Frocks cost from $595 to $695 or PHP30,904 to PHP36,098, while capes cost $795 or PHP41,292.

As for the jackets, the brand's signature collection, these pieces cost from $995 to $1,995 or PHP51,680 to PHP103,620.

Designs are all tailored, hand-painted, and hand-embellished with Swavorski crystals.
