In a way, fashion has used Dali's take on images and used the idea to create accessories which are unusual, in the same sense as the clocks. Take watering can handbags for instance, seen frequently on the arm of Fiz from Coronation Street. They are being used for another purpose like Dali's objects.
The same can be said for handbags in the shapes of dogs (click here for some truly awful dog handbags), the fish phone off Big Brother and a pair of earrings that I have. So there you have it; a semi-intelligent-arty post about accessories.
