Fashion Police detectives called in to identify Martin Margiela clutch bag

Martin-margiela-clutch-bag

  The Fashion Police use many different tests in order to determine whether a suspect is, in fact, guilty of committing crimes of fashion. One of these is a test we call "Guess What It Is". Put simply, if we can't tell what an item actually IS within a few seconds, there's a good chance it's guilty as charged.

Take this MM6 by Maison Martin Margiela clutch bag, for instance. No, that's not a typo: you are looking at a clutch bag. Not, say, a pig. Does this look like a pig's head to you? At first glance, we thought that was exactly what it was supposed to be. And at second glance, we thought it was…

Teddy-bear-bag

… well, actually, we STILL thought it was supposed to be a pig. Then we looked a third time, and finally the penny dropped: it's a teddy bear, isn't it? A teddy bear with a zip in its head. A zip that almost looks like a.. oh God, it IS! It's a clutch bag! And, of course, there's absolutely no reason at all that a clutch bag can't look like a teddy bear. Or a pig, for that matter. We, of course, wouldn't spend £325 on it, but if you would, you can buy it at Yoox.com.

    I don’t like how it looks when the zipper is opened (the snout looks kinda like a breast or something and that’s just wrong) but from the front view when closed I thought it was a teddy right away and I thought it was rather nice, in a cute-sy way.. but not as a clutch bag, no. more in a TOY sort or way, worth prolly ten pounds max:D

    It looks like a strange pillow with a bra cup sewn on. Throw it in the can, Chief!
