“Weird” is having a big month so far. Fall deliveries have given us such a bumper crop of oddball bags that we went ahead and picked our favorite dozen last week, and then Coach put some giant animal heads in its latest in-store campaign. Now, somehow, Alice + Olivia has out-weirded them all.
Because the brand only recently started up its handbag line, you might not be familiar with the contemporary quirk of the Alice + Olivia brand. It offers girlish literalism and irreverence, often in the Charlotte Olympia vein, for reasonably accessible price point. Right now, though, it is simply trying to give me bad dreams.
I like all-black things, I like vaguely creepy things, I like weirdness for weirdness’ sake. This little lady, though, looks like she’s going to hide under my bed and then eat my face while I sleep. It’s looking into the rotten parts of my soul. The handle sticking out of its head is not helping.
If you’d like to scare small children (and grown fashion bloggers), you can own one of these bear bags for $495 via ShopBop.
