Look at any list of money-saving tips and there will inevitably be the suggestion to start packing your own lunch for work instead of paying for your daily sustenance. Being that organised requires a bit more effort, but would you feel more inclined to make the time if your lunch bag cost $290?
Designer Jil Sander has released the ‘Vasari’ bag, described on the website as featuring "a long rectangular silhouette" and being "crafted from coated paper."
It looks like a regular brown lunch bag but evidently it is so much more, and on closer inspection the creation is revealed to be accented with some stitching, gold-coloured eyelets and the designer’s name subtly printed on the bottom.
The good folks over at Gawker have this to say about the creation:
“While Vasari's minimalist design is attractive — and in line with Jil Sander's style — you're still paying a lot of money for a bag made out of paper. For $290, you could buy all the brown paper bags you need, and you'd still have enough left over for metal eyelets (sold separately) and a pen to write "Jil Sander" at the bottom.”
And if you need further proof that the world is going a little bit mad, the fancy lunch bags are already sold out.
