“Wait a minute,” you’re probably thinking. Why are The Fashion Police showing me photos of cereal packets? This isn’t a breakfast blog! This isn’t what I signed up for! Where are the fashion crimes?”

Guys, you’re looking at them. Or not, depending on your point of view. These, you see, are no cereal packets. They’re clutch bags – and expensive ones, too – which are just designed to LOOK like cereal packets. So, basically, for the price of just £995, you can look like you’re walking around carrying a box of Corn Flakes. OR… and bear with us here… for the price of an ACTUAL box of Corn Flakes, you really CAN walk around carrying a box of Corn Flakes. You wouldn’t, though, would you? Because that would be silly. Important question coming up: why would it be silly to carry a box of Corn Flakes around with you, but totally cool and fashion-forward to spend almost £1,000 in order to create exactly the same effect? Questions like this are the reason The Fashion Police exist…

Don’t have a spare £1,000 burning a hole in your pocket? Just not a big fan of Frosties? That’s OK: how about one of these, instead?

Also by Anya Hindmarch, these bags have the benefit of being both a little cheaper (£595, as opposed to £995), and a little less literal, so there’ll be much less chance of people think you’re actually wandering around clutching a box of Daz? Does this make them better or worse, we wonder? More of a fashion crime, or less of a fashion crime? Are they, for that matter, a fashion crime AT ALL? Would you buy one of these clutch bags, readers? And if so, how much would you be willing to pay for them?
