The Football Purse: where sport and “style” collide

Football_purse We’ve put the word "sport" in inverted commas in this headline, because… well, do we really need to explain this one? It’s a handbag shaped like a football, and we think that’s pretty much all you need to know, really.

The Fashion Police aren’t big sports fans at the best of times, so we’re probably safe from this, but if you do happen to enjoy both football and fashion, you may just be finding one of these babies under your Christmas tree this year. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

If you want to buy it for yourself, meanwhile, it’s $49.95 from here.

[Thanks to Fashion Police reader Joyce for the report!]

    It’d been cool if you are a wag at the Superbowl! Other than that, well it looks like something the coach would store plasters and water in at a little league game…

    Huh? That’s not a football as far as I know. I was hoping for something round and in black and white.

    Makes me wonder if a black and white football would look better as a bag than an American football.
    Kill me now.

    You’ve never been out of England then, Sue? Or heard of American football? Where the football is not round, but is shaped exactly like this one? What a shame to be so imsular, and to go through life believing that if you’ve never heard of a particular sport then it cannot possibly exist!
