Glitter, in any form, presents some logistical challenges. First, it gets on everything. Second, it won’t come off. It’s the herpes of the craft world; once you’ve got glitter, it’s yours forever. Third, it is, in the immortal words of one Tim Gunn, a lot of look. All of that forms the context in which we must consider the Saint Laurent Lulu Bunny Glitter Finish Bag, which, based on its quick sell-out at Net-a-Porter, clearly has some fans.
Daytime glitter isn’t a look that most people attempt in great swaths, let alone in a statement-making piece like a bag. This design is a shape and size generally used during the waking hours, though, and its base is leather. Either Saint Laurent is trying to glam up your weekend shopping look or deconstruct some of the formality around evening dressing; I’m not sure which, and I’m not sure if this bag really works for either. Or maybe it works for both. I’ve been thinking about this bag for several days, and my answer seems to vacillate wildly with my mood.
Would you feel comfortable carrying this bag during the day, or would you save it for cocktail hour? Or, perhaps, neither? If you can imagine the perfect context in which to carry this bag, let us know what it is in the comments.
As mentioned, this sparkly little thing sold out quickly at Net-a-Porter, but you can still pick it up via MyTheresa for $1,390.
