JIL SANDER has produced, what is very possibly, the world’s most expensive paper bag. The Vasari design – from the menswear autumn/winter 2012-13 collection – is crafted from coated paper and retails for $290.
The simple rectangular bag features visible brown stitched seams on either side and two metal eyelets at the bottom. The design also features a small Jil Sander logo stamped on the front. The bag recently hit stores, where it reportedly sold out quickly. A version in black leather, priced at $630, was also snapped up fast.
Jil Sander has proven to give the classic brown paper lunch bag a couture makeover. Worthy or not? It’s up to you.
