Have you taken a swig of the Bambi Kool-Aid yet? It takes a real visionary with an über-cool, razor-sharp sensibility like Riccardo Tisci to take something so ridiculous – and out of the Disney vault, no less – and make it undeniably covetable. He’s not the only one. There are a handful of designers out there right now who possess the ability to make the most levelheaded of the fashion flock swoon for the most preposterous items.
Céline’s trash bag-inspired plaid (you know those giant reusable plastic totes that kooky hoarders and bag ladies always seem to have) is the rage of the season, in oversized car coats and pencil skirts. But it’s Givenchy who’s really pushing the limits. Who would have thought we’d all fight for a screen-print Bambi-emblazoned sweatshirt that costs $1,300?! What about the nappa-leather Bambi clutch? For this price, you can get a timeless Chanel clutch. Then again, Chanel doesn’t have that street-style cool factor. And isn’t that what we’re all really after these days? Clutch, $2,340, and neoprene sweatshirt, $1,375, on NET-A-PORTER.
