Prehistoric-Inspired Giles Deacon Triceratops Bag

Giles Deacon, the British design phenom, began showing at Paris Fashion Week with his Spring 2010 collection, and it was quite a show. While some fashion editors referred to his collection as "whimsical", I prefer to use the term "wacky" as in "What's up with these wacky, tacky bags?". It seems quite a few editors are under the impression these "fun" designs have a place in the fashion world. I kid you not.
We're to believe these will be statement bags meant for the adventurous twenty-something that knows who she is and isn't afraid to show it to the world. Well, fashion editors of the world, unless these poor women behave like 7-year olds, I cannot imagine any of them actually walking around with one of these hanging off their shoulder.

Don't get me wrong, folks. I do think the Giles Deacon Triceratops Bag has a place in the world, just not in the fashion world. It should be on a shelf at Toys r Us or hanging on a rack at Claire's. Other than that, it's a pointless, ridiculous design. The fact that many believe these bags should be schlepped over to Japan where street wear can sometimes border on the childish, is insulting to the Japanese. Quit making stupid bags like this, Giles. You have way too much talent to indulge in such infantile designs. If you aren't too mad at me, though, I'd love to get my hands on one of your dino bags. I'll just rip the strap off and give it to my son. He LOVES dinosaurs;-)
