I’m a fan of all things plexiglass because of it’s durability, easy handling, and its semi-opaque qualities. Apparently Mr. Karl likes those qualities as well and so he has done it again with what some call a “brilliant” briefcase for Chanel.
I definitely give him points for ingenuity, but I don’t think its a very attractive product. I find it fascinating that it’s so much easier for society to accept a product whether it’s aesthetically pleasing or not, as long as it’s a designer brand. Sometimes products like these are meant to widen our scope and take us out of the regular rut of accepted aesthetics. At least that’s what I tell myself. What do you think?
