Bodega Bag :: High Price Tag To Look This Low

I am obsessed with this bodega bag from Gelareh Mizrahi 

Anyone have an extra $1,500 for a python bag, 
that is made to look like a plastic bodega bag? 

Can I borrow it with no intention of returning it? 


Reminds me of this Jil Sander brown paper bag from ManRepeller years ago...
for $290...

& as the ManRepeller herself, Leandra Medine, said in that blog post:
"A few years ago, I read a quote by Karl Lagerfeld that said something along the lines of, “the future of fashion is to spend a lot of money without looking like you spent it.” It sounded ridiculous at the time, wasn’t the point to do the exact opposite?" 

& we all know that Karl Lagerfeld is never wrong. 

More evidence in this recent post about designer trash bags from diet_prada on Instagram

This post by DailyStruggles on Facebook is sadly too accurate:

& now you can work this hard to look this poor.

Ah, Fashion.
