Crimes against fashion

Via the Bag Snobs

It's Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs, it costs four figures and it might be worn by attendees at a dolls' tea party. Hopefully the dolls' owners will eat too many cakes and be sick on it.

Even in a classic black number, no girl is going to look good swinging that around.

It's a Polly Pocket bag.

I've seen more grotesque bags coming from LV lately than just about any other brand. Don't know what Mr. Jacobs is thinking these days...

It looks "cheap" but isn't ! Crazy.

I think this begs the question, "What is good design?" Or, "What makes a good design?" With accessories especially, I tend to give utility equal weight with style, but in this case, the purse could have a zillion pockets, clips for keys, a built-in garage door opener, and also make the coffee -- and it would still be ugly. I'm not sure if it's the all-out colorific-ness of it, the appliqued fake jewels or what, but it seems to hit all the ugly buttons.

I said it there (on BagSnob's comments page) and I'll say it here:

Appalling.

I think they are quite cute - if they didn't have those weird blobs on them. When I say cute - I mean as a kitschy fun thing for under a tenner mind.
