Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder. And I find nothing beautiful or desirable about this bag by artist Tom Sachs. As he sees it, nothing beats the Hermès Kelly bag. “It’s the holy grail of handbags,” he said. “There’s no bag beyond it.”
Apparently his knock off version is beyond it– fashioned from hardware-store supplies for added durability at a cost of $12,000 (way more expensive than the birkin and kelly at Hermes). You can find it for sale at Larry Gagosian’s new Madison Avenue shop. What do you think of it? I vote slob!
