In a time when so many bags look alike, it’s nice to see designers come up with truly original pieces. Okay, maybe you don’t love these or want to carry them…they got your attention, though, didn’t they? Tom Ford’s has more goose feathers than a down pillow! To some this might say boho chic, yet others are sure to think Big Bird. Besides, the excess of yellow-tipped plumes is just plain impractical. Louis Vuitton’s bucket bag is a little more wearable. The owl eyes are just subtle enough to avoid all-out kitsch, and in any case, you can get away with mixing sequins, calf hair, suede, tassels, etc. when they’re all in black. Maybe I’m already reminiscing about Marc’s days at LV, but there’s something about the sinister vibe of his black swan song that I’m really captivated by. What do you think? Will these bird-inspired bags take off or fail to launch?
