Diane Von Furstenberg Wrap Bags: Chic vs Ridiculous

At the risk of ticking off someone as iconic and fabulous as Diane Von Furstenberg (whom my mother IDOLIZED!!!), I have a bone to pick with the talented designer. How can Diane's artistic sensibilities create the lovely Wrap Bag (not to mention the legendary Wrap Dress) in such diametrically opposed directions.

The first example of the DVF Wrap Bag, a stunning tote done in a metallic blue crackled leather finish, exemplifies a chic, modern silhouette that would make a welcome addition to any woman's wardrobe. The second bag shows us what happens when all sense of taste and practicality goes out the window. This large beige, sueded, embroidered, sequined and fringed monstrosity defies all logic. The only women this bag could possibly appeal to might be disco-loving hippies. Other than those tragic fashion victims, no one in their right mind could like bag #2.

I hope I haven't offended any readers who might actually like 'the monster bag' or, heaven forbid, Ms. Von Furstenberg herself. Something tells me she's got bigger fish to fry than lowly 'ole me (thank goodness!). If any of you do like bag #2, please stop doing so immediately. Slap yourselves a couple of times and then proceed to buy the stunning blue crackled leather version. Say yes to beautiful bags and NO to bags on crack!
