My MANy Bags News #384

Below: The fashion merry-go-round is working its magic yet again... Spring Summer 2007 sees Louis Vuitton's sending 'cheap chic' laundry bag checks to fashion stardom with their very unexpected handbag designs... now Phoebe Philo is doing the same with her Fall Winter 2013 Céline Cabas and Luggage Tote... Love or hate? I just want them!

Céline Fall Winter 2013 'Laundry Bag Checks' Cabas and Luggage Tote

The fashion merry-go-round is at it again... In Spring Summer 2007, Marc Jacobs sent down his Louis Vuitton runway some of the weirdest bags, shaped like those humble Asian laundry /luggage bags from yesteryear. Suddenly the mundane and cheap looked chic and the high fashion crowd went gaga over them. Fast forward 6 years later to Fall Winter 2013, those ‘laundry bag’ checks are making a comeback. Thanks to Phoebe Philo’s Céline Fall Winter 2013 collection. The recognisable red, blue and white checks are transformed into modern, coveted coats, skirts and of course our favourite Céline bags. I love the new Cabas and Luggage tote bearing this pattern. So ‘cheap chic’ fun!

What do you guys think? Love it or trash it?:-P 

Below: It's Céline Fall Winter 2013 vs Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2007... 6 years later, will Phoebe Philo's version of these 'laundry bag checks' patterned designs be as coveted as Marc Jacobs'? What do you guys think?
