The Meteor Bag

The latest offering from the brand Off-White is the Meteor Bag which has large holes in its sides, as if it’s been hit by meteors (or, perhaps, meteorites?). As a result, anything put into the bag will likely fall out.

The brand says that the bag is intended to be “unfunctional," and that it is, in fact, “challenging the concept of a bag itself.” What a relief someone is finally challenging the tyranny of functional bags!

The cost of the Meteor is a mere $1,665.

Nun in a miniskirt

November 1969: The fact that Sister Joann Malone of the Order of Loreto was protesting wasn't particularly big news, but the fact that she was wearing a miniskirt as she did so was front-page news.

Sydney Morning Herald - Nov 21, 1969

Decatur Herald - Nov 20, 1969



Her superior, Sister Rose Maureen Sanders, head of the St. Louis province of the Sisters of Loreto, wasn’t too happy about the fashion decision. From a follow-up article:

Sister Rose said she feels that Sister Joanne, from her earnings on speaking engagements, could have paid to purchase a longer skirt.
“I regretted the photo when I saw it in newspapers here and thought her wearing a miniskirt was ridiculous,” said the provincial superior.
“It’s an aberration on her part. Many, many sisters are wearing modern clothes but would not choose a miniskirt. Why do the newspapers print things like that?”

Cheetos Fashion

I didn’t realize this when I posted yesterday about Cheetos lip balm, but it turns out that this past week Cheetos announced it would be hosting the brands first-ever runway show, as part of New York Fashion Week. From the press release:

Cheetos will unveil the Cheetos Flamin' Haute look in New York at the brand's first-ever runway show and style bar and is asking fans to show off their #CheetosFlaminHaute look for a chance to gain entry... the brand will debut high-fashion-yet-playful looks with clothes, hair, makeup and nail styling that takes 'looking like a snack' to a whole new level.

Black Binder Clip Pin

The latest ridiculously overpriced merchandise: a single, black binder clip, from designer Off-White, going for $95.

The designer describes it as a 'pin,' which implies that it's meant to be worn as a fashion accessory, rather than used to hold paper together. Perhaps that's the reason for the high cost!

License-Plate T-Shirt

Available from AdversarialFashion.com, which explains:

The patterns on the goods in this shop are designed to trigger Automated License Plate Readers, injecting junk data in to the systems used by the State and its contractors to monitor and track civilians and their locations.
