Would You Pay $1,045 For A Leather Bag That Looks Like A Paper Sack?

Take a look at these bags. Some will set you back a hefty chunk of your salary; the others come free with your take-out order.

Handbag designer Stuart Vevers at Loewe recently created the “Papelle” line of bags whose resemblance to your standard paper shopping bags isn’t a coincidence. “It’s kind of taking the bag back to its purest functionality,” he says of the chic sacks.

But that pure functionality comes with a price tag of around $1,045.

Some snooty person at Bergdorf Goodman’s claims, “The time is right for this kind of new classicism.”

If so, then why not charge a classic price?
