What the hell is this? A lifejacket or a bag? Maybe it’s both. Diverso Italian’s off-putting rubberized calfskin backpack (if you can even call it that; it wraps and clings around your body like an unattractive vest) could possibly be good for air travel. In the case of an emergency landing, you’re required to leave your bag (horror of all horrors!), but now if that happens, I can just pretend my “bag” is part of the airplane’s own life-saving device. And trust me, those flight attendants will be none the wiser.
Sometimes it’s just plain useless to ask why? Like, why would anyone make a bag that looks like this?! If I ever end up shipwrecked in the open sea without a real life vest in sight, maybe I’ll have my answer. Until then, this flotation gadget stays on the rag. On Luisa Via Roma for $554.
