You couldn't make this up, could you?
Yes, this is a handbag. A handbag shaped like a … we can hardly bring ourselves to say it… like a fur toad. (You know how toads have FUR?) Luckily for the toad population of the world, no toads were harmed in the making of this bag, however. Because it was MINKS who died, sacrificing their lives so that rich people could walk around with a FUR TOAD on their backs.
Wouldn't you have LOVED to have been a fly on the wall when Rick Owens swept into his design studio shouting, "I've got it! I want to make a toad! A FUR toad! And I want to make it out of mink! Someone kill me some mink, quick!" And everyone was all, "Yes, Mr Owens, sir, you're a genius, Mr Owens, sir, you are "edgy", we love it!"
CAN NO ONE STOP THIS MADDNESS? Or must The Fashion Police fight it alone?
The bag will cost 660 euros and will be available soon. You can buy your fur toad here.[via The Bag Lady]
