$300 Paper Bag? Only Jil Sander

Jil Sander, Paper bag, Menswear, Fall/Winter 2011/12

I think the first sign of temporary financial insanity is when you realise that your account has been debited $285 because of a brown paper bag. To be fair, it is Jil Sander, and it's COATED paper with STITCHED seams, but at the end of the day, it's still paper (for the price of nearly $300). 

Now I'm not being a massive cynic and shooting down this idea completely. It's different, and entirely wacky in a YOLO sort of way. Unless you're an avid collector of weird fashion paraphernalia or a stylist constantly snapped by street style photographers or just Anna Della Russo, lets just examine the practicality of this 'clutch' first.

Consider these circumstances

a) You come home with your chic 'clutch' (sans lunch) and after a long day you place it on your kitchen table. You go away for a while and come back to find that your mum/housekeeper/husband/boyfriend has scrunched up the Jil Sander and chucked it in the bin mistaking it for rubbish (can you blame him/her? It is paper after all). $300 covered in moldy rubbish! 

b) You give your little 5 yr old child the 'clutch' to take to school as a lunch box (God forbid). Being young and immature, she doesn't care about the fact that it cost an arm, so upon finishing her lunch she goes to dispose of it in the school playground bin. $300 now covered in moldy communal rubbish that isn't even yours... 

It doesn't take someone with a vivid imagination to visualise those scenarios. So, I've come up with a lightbulb idea. How about we buy a packet of 100 paper lunch bags from the supermarket, master the art of the Jil Sander font and just inscribe it on our 'clutches' everyday!! No one will ever know and you've now developed a talent for designer font handwriting. 

Now if you're still not persuaded to give this trend a miss, HERE is the link to the paper bag. Totally not stopping you from clicking it but judging you inside... just a little.

Finally!! I can finally reveal the excuse for my sporadic and quite shallow posts of late. Over the past week, I've been working on some floral crowns for a Brisbane store called Rocket Science (Check out their store HERE and Facebook HERE). As of right now, they're still an online boutique selling quirky independent brands and they contacted me through Etsy to stock some of my crowns for their upcoming physical shop. 
If you are located in Brisbane, do go check out the opening on December 1st at 181 Brisbane Street, Ipswich.

If you're interested in my floral crowns and want to be updated for new listings, follow me on Instagram (primpedandprimed), Twitter or go to my Etsy store.

Lusting for Summer

My apologies for my sporadic posts of late, I've just been quite busy with some upcoming projects (will be expanded on in my next posts). It has something to do with my Etsy store...

Anyways, Sydney is well and truly into the warmer season and around this time, I'm usually trolling heaps of swimwear lookbooks. I promise, once I've finished my Etsy project, I will start posting more meatier content. In the meantime lets all dream of summertime with the latest from We Are Handsome ... The Streets.
