Trend Alert: Peekabo! I See You!
January 25, 2007
Remember that scene in Superman where Supe uses his see-throuhg-anything power to tell Lois what color underwear sheâ€™s wearing? Awkward! Now, thanks to Karl Lagerfeld, the Travel Safety Administration and one transparent trend, everyone can see your business. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that see-through handbags, inspired by the clear plastic bags air travelers are now asked to tote their carry-on liquids in, are a clear frontrunner in spring handbag trends. Word has it Saks Fifth Avenue will start stocking an $895 clear Chanel tote and a $1,695 Dolce & Gabbana satchel accented with black leather. Canâ€™t wait to let the world see everything youâ€™re carrying? Lambertson Truexâ€™s $445 clear and silver metallic tote is available at Bloomingdales.com. Kate Spadeâ€™s $225 Remini Small Coal bag at Nordstrom.com is reminiscent of a little beach bag, complete with alternating clear and bright vinyl stripes. And Car Shoeâ€™s gold leather and acrylic satchel, $645 at NeimanMarcus.com, is a regal way to show off your goodies (in a non-Britney Spears kind of way.) Just remember to stash your tampons and embarrassing celebrity gossip magazines in your non-see-through bags before you head out of the house.
