Topshop make sweet handbags. Literally.

Topshop-sweet-handbags

These are either sweet in a super-cute way or sweet in a "rots your teeth" way. What they definitely are is sweet in a "looks like a sweetie in a wrapper" kind of way, which is exactly how Topshop wanted them to look.

What do you think of these, readers? Want to carry a giant piece of candy on your shoulder? If so, you can buy them at Topshop, where they're £22 each.

    can’t help thinking that they could have been made better – they are not instantly recognizable as sweets. however, i think the idea is cute

    They’re cute. I think I’d like them better in different colours…these colours don’t really scream “sweets/lollies” to me. I particularly just don’t like metallic

    Yeah, my first thought was fish with 2 tails and no head. I don’t know what that says about me. Come on, though, CANDY! Where’s the bright colors and whimsical Willy Wonka flair? I think a scrumdidiliumptious bag would be awesome. They definitely missed the mark.

    Cute idea, cringe-inducingly ugly execution.

    They look like the type of bags that you buy on Canal Street in New York, next to the fake Louis Vuittons and Guccis…ugh.
