Spot the difference between Jill Sander’s $290 Paper Bag and … a Paper Bag

By

30th Aug, 2012

Not to be confused with your average airplane barf bag or something to carry around that mushy banana you didn’t eat for lunch– I present to you the latest accessory on le fashion scene, a Jill Sander brown paper bag, retailing at (drum roll please) $290. Yes, two-hun-dred-and-nine-ty.

Can adorable puppies be pulled out of the bag if at anytime I get lonely?

It folds just like a brown paper bag, it creases just like a brown paper bag, hell it even smells like a brown paper bag– because friends, it is a brown paper bag. It’s made out of coated paper with brown stitching at the side and it even has the designer’s logo on the front for all to see, in case the cleaning staff mistakes it for … you know … a brown paper bag.

Sigh.

Oh, fashion! I try to take you seriously, I really do. With all your kooky avant-garde ways and those ‘why-are-you-wearing-a-potato-sack-on-your-head‘ moments– I’ve tried to stay loyal and understand. Even when Louis Vuitton Trash bags came on the market for $2000, I turned a blind eye. But you’re making it very difficult for me to like you right now.

Louis Vuitton sold imitation trash bags in 2010 that retailed at $2000

 

I’m just waiting for the toilet paper scarf. And then I’m done.
