The New Must Have – Plastic Bags?

Posted on February 1, 2011


jil sander plastic bagThe new must have bag for Spring Summer 2011 is not a luxurious diamond encrusted leather satchel or a Chanel style quilted clutch, oh no, it’s the good old plastic bag! The Jil Sander SS11 show (watch here) saw an array of plastic shoppers teamed with floor length dresses and tailored suits. An artistic statement? The fashion world seems to be obsessed with the ethics behind their pieces and looking out for mother Earth, so is this to highlight the sorry, short-lived life of a supermarket carrier, Or just another attempt at quirky? You decide.

These bags are selling like hot cakes at £90 and have just sold out on  Net a porter. You can sign up to receive delivery info here. I have to say I like the fact that Sander is finally using brighter than bright colours as opposed to the usual darker tones, and the orange of the bag above certainly sits with the blue dress in a way that makes them both look smashing…I’m just not sure I want everyone seeing what’s in my handbag. Or feeling like ‘the bag lady’.
