In case you hadn’t noticed, sturdy plastic bags are all the rage right now – especially when they come with the stamp of approval of a designer like Rei Kawakubo. Following the repeated success of its plastic-covered paper tote bag, COMME des GARÇONS has blessed us with another PVC bag we desperately need in our lives.
This time, the tote bag takes on a fully transparent look and a somewhat boxy, yet practical shape. It features plastic carry handles to the top and the black CdG logo printed boldy upon the front. The shape and size makes the bag ideal for carting around your everyday essentials and likely even has enough space for a slim laptop, making it ideal for work or school. Of course, thanks to the see-through nature of the piece, you’ll be required to keep all your belongings tidy and organized – which gives you the perfect excuse to invest in some of the brands new wallets and pouches to show off.
This high-end plastic bag is set to release at select CdG retailers and at I.T Hong Kong starting May 19, as part of the “CdG Breaking News” collection, where it will retail for around $699 USD.
