When Is A Trash Bag Worth $1,500?
Lanvin’s Spring Summer 2014 RTW collection was chalk full of metallics, lamés, satins, Lurexe’s, brocades, and of course a distinct trash bag purse that trickeled throughout his collection worth a staggering $ 1,500. When Alber Elbaz of Lanvin was questioned about his trash bag purse on the runways he said, “I don’t make garbage bags.”
Alber Elbaz of Lanvin defined his Spring 2014 collection that included the much talked about trash bag purse priced at $ 1,500 as, “an homage to the fabric industry.” Adding, “vacant to the factories, to the basements and warehouses where fabrics are kept, tells you the truth. I didn’t want to do a collection based on the forest or Marilyn Monroe.”
The Lanvin trash bag purse worth $ 1,500 trapped the attention of many editors and buyers alike, as this headline hogging Lanvin trash bag had sartorial similarities to the much talked about Jil Sander lunch bag from her Fall/Winter 2012 collection. While Lanvin’s trash bag has a steep fee tag, we’re thinking it would be relatively inexpensive to DIY this spring 2014 fashion find.
