New Jil Sanders Paper Bag
Some WTF news from the world of fashion today. I normally have no reason to comment on anything in that realm, due to the fact that I can dress myself each morning is nothing short of a miracle. Really. Like, who am I to comment on what is just “too much” in fashion and what is just down right stupid. Well… I’m sane, that’s what. So let’s get right down to it. There’s this designer, Jil Sander. She’s a minimalist designer from Germany who founded her own fashion house. She was originally THE designer for women in the 80′s who were climbing the corporate ladder. Her precisely cut pantsuits and form fitting blazers were made of some of the most beautiful fabrics in office-appropriate grey, begin, black, and white. She is known as “The Queen of Less.”
So why is she WTF-worthy? Sanders just unveiled her newest bag design. It’s quite simple… just coated brown paper with brown stitching on the sides. It features the Jil Sanders logo on one side. How much does this glorified lunch bag cost? Oh, just $290… HUH, WHAT? The same sack is available in black leather. W was falling all over themselves saying, “The design does two very interesting things: It doesn’t venture far from the original, and it’s perfectly in sync with the fashion house’s minimalist roots. Forget recycling — this bag is a keeper.” For only $530, how could you afford NOT to buy this imaginative, beautiful, slouchy bag! ….Pssh, RIGHT. LOL JK JK.
But seriously, you guys. What the hell is wrong with the world where a brown lunch bag can go for double my grocery bill? Are people really truly buying this for everyday use? It’s not even pretty! If I was breaking up with a someone who was super high fashion, I’d totally buy this to poop in, light it on fire, and leave it on their porch–Billy Madison style. I guess that’s why I don’t date people who are super into fashion… I can’t afford the revenge.
So what do you think, BANGSTYLE readers? Am I just totally out of touch for calling this ugly sack… an ugly sack? Would you buy this thing? Have you already bought it? If you have, please let me know… I want to fill it up with oranges and beat you with it. THANKS FOR YOUR COOPERATION!
