I keep saying I’m excited that the 80′s are back but only if updated with a 2009 aesthetic (because really, it was the most hideous decade of all). Most designers are taking inspiration from the 80′s, not trying to replicate the 80′s. The designers at Pauric Sweeney, however, were too lazy to modernize or update– they’re just partying like it’s 1985. Which means hideous patchwork in various offensive shades of animal print that resemble those awful leather earrings people were nuts about– on nylon no less. I’m mostly shocked about the price though. Who has the audacity to charge over a thousand dollars for a bunch of scrap leather on nylon? The only person this bag is appropriate for is my 4 year old niece; but she’s quite the little bag snob and I have a feeling even she would refuse, unless it was filled with lollipops.
