The Accessories Wall: Cavalli’s Apple Bag
Fashion Week Daily deemed it the new “It” bag
“Meet Roberto Cavalli’s latest It bag. It’s the Apple bag from his Fall/Winter 2008-2009 collection and the thing has already been scooped up by Jessica Simpson and Halle Berry. The hobo comes in black and metallic with patchwork details has a roomy unstructured shape, perfect for throwing in all that randomness. Cost: $2,995.”
Enh. We thought the trend was moving away from those gigantic luggage-like bags, but it looks like the old girl still has some life to her. Ah, well. Fashion is a capricious bitch.
Seriously, though. What could Jessica Simpson and Halle Berry possibly have in those bags that their assistants and hangers-on couldn’t carry themselves? It seems to us that the very women who can afford these gigantic diaper bags are the last ones who require such large ones.
Still, taken on its own, there is a fabulosity inherent. The texture and the shape are nice. It’s just that we’re a couple of clutch queens. Show us something so tiny that you can either take a tube of lipstick with you or a tampon but never both, and we swoon. Show us something with enough room to carry around a fax machine and we get quickly bored.
And you bitches?
