big bag brigade



We all knew that enormous bags were going to be a hit this winter (and I couldn't be happier, as my daily miu miu is near bursting with bits and bobs that require more room)... but who would have foreseen that a couture version of a plastic garbage bag would be hanging from the shoulders of New York's richest and most fashionable femmes?


(As pictured in today's NY Times)

Despite my unrelenting love for oversize totes, I would save the $1K and borrow a body bag from the Toronto morgue instead. Then it could double as a sleeping bag too. Economical and functional.

I don't like that. It looks really like a plastic garbage sack!

Body bag chic, yeah absolutely go for it:-) After all, that shiny fabric does look rather appealing. People will point at you whispering 'death becomes her'.

You're sooo right.. those bags are a crime against humanity.
Btw, I'm starting to miss blogging...Maybe I'll recontinue my blog or start a new one.

I'm not a fan of these. Too too big. When it's all pleat-y and weird looking under your arm, it's just too big.

It's times like these that make me wonder if fashion's just an excuse to get away with dressing ugly.

The body bag is a bit much. Its theatrical and made a point on the runway, but its funny that so many people have taken to using it for real life. I think it looks ridiculous.

Ick, even if I had liked the bag, the images of absolutely everyone toting one would deter me from getting it.

Ha, you should get a body bag and start something new!

I actually find something about this bag very attractive. Maybe it's because it does look like a garbage bag- I kind of like stuff like that. But Rachel Zoe has decreed that unstructured patent bags are the new thing, so there she's gone and ruined it for me.

That Chanle bag is really cool, I'm in a Fendi B bag place right now, but the unstructured look has almost won me over...

Almost.
