Get your luxed-up plastic bags now!

Plastic bags? A fashion phenomemon? Pah all you like, dear readers, but this was predicted by Grazia in the first issue of January for our elite spring/summer hotlist – well, it is called hotlist for a reason - and not any old thing creeps onto it. So already, four of the seven styles are stocked on Net-A-Porter (with two more arriving in February) and they’re selling faster than Anna Dello Russo can do a costume change. And that’s speedy.

Calm down, we’re not encouraging you to pay bonkers amounts of dosh for something that’s a common old plastic carrier bag. You can get those for free anytime. And don’t expect that your local grocer will be stocking these luxed-up leather or acetate market shoppers any time soon either. What we can guarantee, however, is that these are a fast track to spring style without even taking off our winter coat. Holler! Fortunately, the ever-generous Net-A-Porter have set up a special Jil Sander update email, empowering you with the knowledge of the next day’s delivery (woop! Sign up now!), so no one will have to resort to carrying around a Tesco’s eco-shopper in a pathetic homage to the trend. Think less oh-here’s-my-packed-lunch and more I’m-ready-and-raring-for-fashion-week.
