Jil Sander Designs a Brown Paper Bag Purse: Wonderful or Waste?

It's true that many women yearn for the days of their youth, and many companies capitalize on this desire by creating products that make you look and feel younger. I don't know about you, but for me "younger" evokes more of the post-puberty than pre-puberty years, but there must be some ladies out there wishing they still looked young enough to be playing in the sandbox...right?

Jil Sander must think so, because she designed a new purse that resembles a brown paper bag... and priced it at $290. I kinda think she missed the memo, but what about you? Do you think this upscale brown bag is wonderful -- or a total waste?

    really? I don't know which is more pathetic.
    The fact there are some schmucks out there that will actually buy this, or the fact that I can get the same thing for maybe a $1....with handles!

    Now why doesn't she go to the local grocery store ..
    they sell them by the packs for a couple dollars ..
    (and then when they rip or get nasty .. just give them a toss )

    If she changes her mind she can use another bag. Just think how expensive if it has the Coach logo.

    Are people really that uncreative these days? I was embarrassed to carry a brown paper sack to school as a child, why would I want to carry one now? Honestly, a Dora the Explorer lunchbox would be more fashion-foward than this. Send it back to the kindergarteners where it belongs; with any luck, they may be able to improve it slightly with some glitter glue.

    What a waste of paper bag just to make an ugly looking purse no one would buy for $290 dollars in a pink fit! The paper bag purse is also a bad idea because it could attract a potential theif to come and rob you!

    Someone needs to design a 'garbage bag' purse; that would be more appropriate, LOL! Women will buy doggy doo, if you tell them it makes them look better; it's just sad. Men would do the same if they thought it would get them laid.

    Yeah, because it's ironic for something so expensive to look so cheap. :) Like those travel mugs that look like Styrofoam cups.

    If I saw that somewhere I would probably chuck it in the recycling bin, being eco-freidnly and all...

    Then the person who spent $290 on that bag would set fire to me.

    I don't want to burn to death D:

    Do you remember the "pet rock" back in the 70s? A whole bunch of idiots paid for those (tho they weren't quite as expensive as this paper bag purse). LOL

    Being born in the 90's, I never knew they actually sold those. I had a pet rock as a kid; I picked him up out of the dirt in my backyard. Give him some googely eyes and a magic marker smile, and viola, I had a responsibilty-free, cost-free pet. Wow, people really will buy anything.
