Finally winter is here, and on a rainy day there is nothing better to do then XSRZ yourself with the coolest things from the accessories market in Tel Aviv this weekend. Yesterday, we braved the rain and fished out our favorite things. First things first, the full event info can be found here. The event runs until November 5th, 2011.
This time, the market is arranged into 5 sections, which we think made browsing for something specific much easier: by going to that type of accessory’s designated area – thumbs up to the new arrangement!
Malinca makes swirly goodness with these plastic coated goodies. She paints a large “canvas” so when it runs out, there will never be more purses exactly like it. They are stimulating to the senses both look and feel. Sonya couldn’t resist and bought one of these colorful beauties.
Stella and Lori are two sisters who hail from the new design school- The Guild. Tea feel in love with this over size canvas carry all with leather trim that would fit all your essentials for everyday shlepping.
Meanwhile, Dreed found this satchel style bag from Stella and Lori in blue Ostrich leather- what a killer combo, you can’t go wrong! And of course it comes in a range of colors and textures.
This versatile Bellinky bag serves all your purposes: laptop carrier, converts to backpack, and can be folded down to a regular sized purse. A multipurpose bag can never grow old for us!

Medusa has a new addition, and it’s a smart look indeed! Meet “Slim” (we are in love)! The front features a diamond pattern panel that the girls mold themselves, and the back is a full panel of blue diamond molded plastic- hurry up before it’s sold out, there are only a few left! Medusa has been working hard and produced a wonderful array of small bags, clutches, and wallets.
Here’s another beautiful model from Medusa. Dreed was drawn to the blue / tan combo, but if you know Medusa, you know they come in every color in the rainbow!

Yael Keila Sagi (her necklace was the XSRZ market poster child) has emerged on the scene with some seriously eccentric neck candy. Each is a work of art and features tassels, rope, chains, and more. It’s very in tune with the S&M trend that is popular this season, but completely fresh! We will surely keep our eyes on her, she’s one talented designer.
