Fashion critics will tell you that you could fix a designer label on the most mundane item and get some fashion buffs to pay a good sum for it.
Here is another opportunity to make an impulsive buying decision; the ‘Vasari’ bag by Jill Sander which sells for a whopping $294 (N46,000) is made of ‘100 per cent coated paper’ and features stitched seams. It was modeled during the designer’s 2012 menswear show, and has proved such a hit that it’s been selling out all over the world.
As if that’s not mind-boggling enough, there’s a more luxurious leather version too, but this might hit your pocket mercilessly with a price of almost $800 (N126,000).
So what do you think? Is it worth the splurge?
