Is It A Bird, Is It A Plane...? Why No, It's The Worlds Oldest Handbag...!
As you may remember it was not so long ago that I was speculating as to what particular carry-all deserved the much coveted accolade of "Latest It-bag" (here) Well, while we may not have a definitive answer to that one yet we can now confirm that the worlds oldest It-bag has indeed been found... And yes you're looking at it - the brown moldy thing! And yes those strange pale things that remind you of teeth are in fact teeth... Dog teeth to be exact..! Although over time the fabric has worn away archaeologists believe that the neat allignment of the teeth served a more decorative than practical function... It's believed that this rather ancient artefact is in fact a studded handbag flap...! Seems someone had a strong sense of Stone-Age-Style if you ask me... Call me crazy but I'm reminded of an early Alexander Wang when I see this... You?
