Paper, Plastic or $1K?

You know those lovely paper bags you get free from the grocery store or from a clothing store? Well, now you can have the luxury of having designer look-a-like paper bags! Designer Stuart Vevers at Loewe has launched a new bag collection called “Papelle.” These bags, which start at a whopping $1,045, are specially designed to look like the standard paper shopping bags. Vevers proudly states this collection “[takes] the bag back to its purest functionality” and Bergdorf Goodman says they have a “new classicism.”

What do you think? Are these bags the “new classicism?” Would you buy a Papelle bag?
