A LUXURY French fashion house is charging a whopping £8,000 for a bag that looks exactly like a waste paper bin.
Hermes describes the Chaine d’Ancre bag as “a feat of expert craftsmanship with a promise of sophisticated elegance”.
But Brits poked fun at the bag, in black or brown, comparing it to the bins under their desks where they toss their used tissues.
Fashion writer Erica Smith of The Cut said: “The best part is it comes with an optional liner just like my waste paper bin at the office!
"Only this one is made of silk so probably wouldn’t hold up to the excess coffee leakage from my discarded cups.”
Someone else joked: “I have been meaning to upgrade the home office to impress clients on zoom calls and nothing says success like casually tossing a crumpled post-it into an £8,000 leather bin before signing off!”
And another said “This is great because you’ll always have a place to get rid of your gum or toss your Cadbury wrappers when you’re out and about.”
Amazon sell an actual bin that looks similar – in black or brown – for £5.94 but the bin liners are sold separately.
Earlier in the year, we revealed how a £1,500 Bottega Veneta bag resembled 1p Pets at Home poo bags – and a £765 Gucci bag that looked just like a £4.50 storage tub from B&M.
So for a tenner you could set your favourite fashionista up this Christmas with a trio of 2020’s hottest designer bags.
