The Chinese laundry bag is haute again, having been transformed into covetable fashion by Phoebe Philo for Celine (top) and Stella McCartney (bottom) for Autumn/Winter 2013.
The last time we thought of this humble check as even remotely fashionable, was back in 2010 when Louis Vuitton morphed it into a $2,500 it-bag. This time we see it incarnated into chic, clean, cocoon-like silhouettes complete with white edging at Celine, and perfectly frayed edges at Stella, who teamed hers with heavy duty boots with mega tred (hot on our lust list btw).
Suddenly lurking around the laundromat is tres cool. Don’t you just love fashion?
