Jil Sander Transparent Gray Shopper | Designer Opaque Shopping Bag

Posted on: May 13

Jil Sander Transparent ShopperJil Sander offers a high class alternative to plastic shopping bags with her Transparent Gray Shopper.

To the unknowing eye this shopper looks like the bags we find at our local grocery store. It's not made from flimsy plastic though. Jil Sander instead has opted for polypropylene, a high tech material so tough it's used in ropes, lifesaving armor, and protective gear for the NFL.

This transparent shopper leaves little to the imagination. While it's not quite clear, its opaque finish shows the outline of the items we're carrying.

The transparent material is matched with a navy blue leather base and a matching embossed leather tag. This tag is the only obvious marker that we're indulging in a designer original, rather than a stock standard supermarket bag.

Without any interior pockets or even a closure, I'm left feeling very underwhelmed. There's minimalism and there's not trying hard enough, and it feels like Jil Sander's crossed that all important line.

I appreciate the novelty aspect of this shopper, but not its price tag. $289 seems far too much to pay for a glorified plastic bag, don't you think?
