Stella McCartney Felt and Plastic Bag
Fashion designer and PETA supporter Stella McCartney is known for never using leather or fur in her work, and most of the time you will see her plastic bags retailing for (around) $1k+.
One of the newest bags from her fall 2008 stock is this Felt Purse. The body of the bag is dressed in felt with shiny plastic trim and also features multi easy-access compartments and a small detachable purse (on a chain) with two small handles and buckle detail.
I do really love the style of Stella McCartney bags, but sometimes I just wish that they were made of different materials. Seriously the bag is made of Felt, as in the type of material that is probably stickered on the bottom of the chair you are sitting on to prevent from scuffing your wood floors (image of felt pads). And the trim is plastic. Is that wrong of me to say, “I’m more of a leather fan then of plastic?” I mean especially when it comes to me spending over $1k for bag. You can buy a plastic bag anywhere for way-way-less. But of course it wouldn’t be as functional and cute as the Stella Bags.
What do you guys think? Are you a fan of Stella’s vegetarian-friendly Felt and Plastic Purse?
