For all of you who watched The Rachel Zoe Project last week, this bag will ring a bell. Behold, the Missoni Chicken Foot Bag that Rachel made a very sour face at while in the Missoni showroom. I was on a personal mission to find the bag and make fun of it myself. I figured it would be ghastly and almost disturbing to look at.
But a funny thing happened. Once I saw the bag I found it, well, somewhat intriguing.
There is this odd mixture of materials and textures and colors which somehow partially works. You look at the bag and realize it is perfectly Missoni. If you study the front pocket, you can see the chicken feet being used, but if you have the ability to keep yourself from focusing on that aspect, you might find yourself enjoying the quirkiness of the bag as well.
Ok, so this bag is a massive mish-mosh of colors and ideas. And while I called it quirky many will call it tacky. But on some level, it kind of, sort of, partially, maybe, possibly works. I think most of me gives this bag lots of leeway because it is far less awful than I imagined it would be. It may not be for 98.9% of us, but I can imagine a fashionable woman who takes chances with her accessories wearing this outside of Paris fashion week. I want to see someone carry this bag.
