World’s most expensive paper bag by Jill Sander’s sells for $290
How much one can actually pay for a paper bag? Paper bag usually doesn’t last long if not stored and kept properly. Jil Sandler comes with such a bag, a paper bag which can be as expensive as your leather bag from a popular brand. The minimalist German fashion designer and the founder of the Jil Sander fashion house, Jil Sandler gives away her trademark look and created something more than interesting. Noted as one of the major labels who helped popularize the minimalist aesthetic of the nineties, Jil Sander stands for luxe purity. The German designer launched her namesake women’s ready-to-wear line in 1973 on the Milan runway, after designing collections for her own boutique in Hamburg for five years.
Though the rich philanthropists spend a lot of money on various charitable causes closed to their hearts, they still love to spend on frivolous luxuries like this $250 Jill Sander’s paper bag, which officially is the most expensive paper bag. While the Jil Sander fashion line is known for its minimalist designs, this $290 Vasari brown paper bag puts on a price on minimalism. And, considering the fashion house’s popularity with celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West amongst others, we are not surprised that the Jill Sander store in SoHo has already run out of the $290 paper bag. “I think it’s more of a fashion statement,” Mildred Fabian, regional director of the design house said.
Jil Sander has been a byword for cool minimalism since the designer founded her eponymous label in 1978. Since 2005, highly acclaimed Belgian designer Mr Raf Simons has been at the helm, innovating but staying true to the original principles of faultless quality and aesthetic restraint.
