FASHION: A Must-Have Item For The Man Who Has Everything
There’s a new must-have item for men
that is quickly selling out everywhere.
The plain brown paper bag is no longer
just a sack to carry your man’s lunch.
The paper bag has been given a stylish
facelift courtesy of designer Jil Sander
Vasari. The Vasari “clutch” for men is
made from coated brown paper,
stitched seams and metal vents stamped
with the Vasari logo to give the brown
paper bag a trendy new look.
The paper bag clutch is already sold out
at The Jil Sander store in SoHo, New
York. It isn’t available online either (I
checked eBay.com). Sure, you could
save yourself $290 by making your
own brown paper bag clutch, but it
won’t be a designer brown paper bag.
According to the NY Daily News, the
black leather version retails for $630. W
Magazine gushed that it’s “perfectly in
sync with the fashion house’s
minimalist roots. Forget recycling — this
bag is a keeper.”
