I really have no words for this ball (spare tire holder?) bag from Bottega Veneta. It’s 18″ around so I don’t know how one is supposed to carry it, balanced on your head? Clutched to your middle like a pillow? Yes, I know when you pick up the all leather version it slouches like a ball but this one is more structured and holds its shape as a flying saucer.
I imagine the crochet technique is very difficult because they are charging $5,200 for this thing. Wait, I just thought of more uses for it– moon cake carrier or a pizza delivery bag but hello, five grand?!?!?
I am quite concerned– with news of Prada losing $50 million a day you’d think everyone else would be scrambling to produce bags that people will actually want to buy and use (not to mention afford!). At Barneys New York. What do you think? Snob or Slob?
