Antimatter Flip-Flaps

In many old-fashioned visions of the future, predictions were made regarding some widely available, far-out fashion equipment: From Barbarella to The Jetsons, folks were dressed, coiffed, and made up by machines, and their accessories expanded on the mood ring technology of the day, with jewelry and boots and bags changing color and design as necessary. So where is it all? Just as moving sidewalks are found only in airports (still!) the future of fashion remains an old-school mirage with temperature-sensitive lipstick that stains you for days being the only real offering. Or is it? Oakland's Alison and Rik Murray make messenger bags under the brand name Antimatter, and they're as flexible as your wallet allows them to be, with their trademark Flip-Flaps — interchangeable flaps that seamlessly attach with Velcro — available in a variety of colors and styles from hummingbirds to handguns, and starting at $35 a pop (the messenger bags themselves cost $59). The vinyl bags are made "with no sweat and no critters," and they'll soon be joined by a line of diaper bags, so Mommy and Daddy can each sport their own style when out with the spawn.
