New designers always seem to spark my interest. I’m not sure what the allure is, perhaps it is the novelty of seeing something I have never seen before. Now I am not sure how long Cast of Vices has been around, but I certainly have not seen anything from them prior to the bag you see pictured here. And it certainly is an interesting one! Introducing the Cast of Vices Crinkled Paper Shopper!
This bag is interesting because it was designed to look like a paper shopping bag. You know, like the kind you would get from a grocery store. It has instructions embossed near the top. They say “Please Use Both Handles” and “Pull Up Not Out”. Both messages are pretty self-explanatory, as they are referring to the handles as if this was a real paper shopping bag. In case you were wondering though, this bag is actually made of washed leather that is made to resemble crumpled paper. So why was a paper bag used as inspiration for this piece? Well it seems that is this designer’s thing. That is, creating artifacts from common vices. Cast of Vices likes to focus on the guilty pleasures of our society. Huh… looks like this designer is even more interesting than I thought.
