You know the bags you’re used to seeing ladies carry on their way to the laundromat? You know the ones we’re talking about. They’re the big ugly plaid bags. Well, they WERE ugly. Now the print is the hottest thing off the catwalk as Celine has taken the “laundry bag” print and made it the chicest thing out there for autumn winter. So imagine our surprise when we spotted the print on a chic East Londoner this past weekend. For a second, we had to wonder whether or not that had always been her laundry bag or if she was embracing a new trend laid out by Phoebe Philo. Whatever the fashion implications of this carry, we must admit it made us think twice about investing in the plastic version to get our Celine fix for the season.
On a sidenote, isn’t it crazy how a designer has the power to make you reconsider a print entirely? Amazing… just amazing.
