On Trial: Prada’s fringe bag – a crime of fashion?


I can’t tell you how pleased I am that most of you said big sunglasses were categorically NOT a crime of fashion in our poll last week. I’m just off to my mother-in-laws to sit in the sun for a few hours, and I will totally wear my oversized sunnies with pride. (I mean, OK, I would have worn them anyway, even if you’d all said they were hideous, but hey, it’s nice to have some validation, you know?)

Now, Prada’s famous fringe bag is another matter altogether.  Left to my own  devices, I would have  absolutely no hesitation in branding this as a crime of fashion. I hate it. I think it looks like somwe kind of strange, mutant animal, and mutant animals, well, they’re not exactly my style. But then, I’ve seen so many people sing the praises of this bag: Eva Longoria has one. Victoria Beckham has one. Handbag bloggers think it’s ace. So, what do you think? Is it a crime of fashion? Can we safely consign it to fashion hell? Tell me about it…
