Jon: Fuck up your own Fendi bag….

jonheader.jpg

….for the low price of only $1300.

 

 

 

Fendi recenty released a new version of their classic (and overpriced) staple bag, The Fendi Baguette.

I know, a total yawn right?

The thing that makes this particular bag “exciting” and “new” is that it is white, and comes with a set of 10 pantone markers. Owners are meant to color in the bag themselves…

Are you fucking kidding me?

I am all for the idea of finding new ways to insert creativity into out consumption based world, but this is fucking ridiculous. Are wealthy people so enamored with themselves that they actually think they are talented and capable enough to create artwork that is worth $1300 (the cost of the bag)?!?!

 

Here is a tip for anyone considering buying this bag:

Head to an art gallery and purchase a couple of pieces by local up and coming artists. It will (maybe) set you back about $1000. Not only will you be supporting your community, but you will also be making a wise investment. Trust me, local art is far more likely to accrue value than a cheaply made, coated canvas, piece of shit bag with your initials inside a heart painted on it.

Plus, having art on your walls makes you look smart. Carrying an ugly bag just makes you look stupid.

    Dear Jon:

    I couldn’t agree with you more. Support your local art scene.
