Hefty, Hefty, Handbag

Louis Vuitton designer Marc Jacobs, who seems to enjoy courting controversy, has released a purse that upon first, second and third glance appears to be little more than a drawstring trash bag with a leather shoulder strap attached. Price tag? $1,960.

The euphemistically named Raindrop Besace does offer some mitigating features: it comes in your choice of industrial brown or greenish gray and is made of waterproof coated canvas that mimics the look of flimsy plastic. But come on. It looks like you’re smuggling $2,000 worth of kitchen scraps under your armpit.
