Style Inspired: Painted Leather Goods à la Logan Real

Logan Real is getting all the love these days from Hollywood A-listers and fahsionistas. He's also made a splash at Art Basel Miami. What is all the raving about? He is mixing up 1980s inspired shapes and colors with leather bags, personal organizers, wallets and sneakers.

He's on everyone's list (meaning his goods already cost more then a couple months rent), so why not just rip his style off, err use him for inspiration and make some 80's style painted leather goods yourself?
