Perforated handbags made a big hit with the Louis Vuitton Perforated Handbag Line and now the genius and sometimes off-his-rocker designer, Jean Paul Gaultier, is introducing a line of perforated handbags for Spring/Summer 2007. With a touch of poker, the Jean Paul Gaultier Perforated Handbags will not hide any unmentionables and looks oddly done, bordering on the line of cheaply done, from afar. I tried to like this perforated number, but the spade, diamond, heart, and club cutouts look cheap and only if the bag were within 3 feet of you would you be able to see the shaped perforations. Of the two, I would pick the Jean Paul Gaultier Perforated Shopper over the Jean Paul Gaultier Perforated Cabas Bag because at least the shape is decent. The shopper looks like pleather, skimpy, and hole-y. This line does nothing more than make me shrug. Via eLuxury. ($855 for the Cabas and $815 for the Shopper)
