THE IT BAG: THE “LAUN­DRY” BAG

Female (Singapore) - - CONTENTS - – IJ

Draw­string pouches that take af­ter bags for your dirty linen are the next evo­lu­tion of the mun­danecar­rier-made-good.

Ex­clud­ing Me­la­nia Trump’s Zara jacket fi­asco, there’s al­ways just been some­thing cool about wear­ing items that seem to sug­gest “I do not care”. (Cue Jonah Hill who’s gone from slacker to ev­ery­day-man style icon with his rou­tine of tie-dye tees, gym shorts and mis­matched out­ers.) It partly ex­plains fash­ion’s ob­ses­sion with re­mak­ing plas­tic bags, pa­per lunch bags and striped mar­ket stall shop­pers. Now, the next evo­lu­tion of the mun­dane-car­rier-made-good is here: draw­string pouches that take af­ter those that ho­tels of­fer for cart­ing dirty clothes around in. Brands like Her­mes, Saint Lau­rent and Sport­max all have their own plush ren­di­tions, while Gucci’s Alessan­dro Michele went so far as to repli­cate the one from Chateau Mar­mont – com­plete with its faun logo – in leather, sim­ply be­cause he loves it. Yeah, the man’s cool.
