In which we are asked to consider the assinine.
A fashion statement? Should I put my bottle of whiskey in it too Jil?
If I wanted to put my lunch or habit in a bag, I’d just go and buy a real paper bag, like from a liquor store that my liquor came in and be all that much cooler. $290 for a “fashion statement?” For who? Wanna-be street people?
We rip our hair out and wonder how the bag – which recently hit stores – sold out quickly. Couldn’t we at least have a recycled paper version? A version in black leather, priced at $630, was also snapped up fast. This is what sells? (A moan arises from independent designers everywhere.)
“You have to get a collector’s piece,” Mildred Fabian, regional director of Jil Sander, told the New York Daily News. “I think it’s more of a fashion statement.”
We just say a hearty WTF.
