This New York Designer Deserves a Knighthood for Inventing a Wine-Cooler Handbag

With New York Fashion Week underway, fashion folk have their eyes fixed on the runway ready to spot the It pieces poised to hit our wardrobes next year. As always, amongst the good, the bad and the "ugly," there's the surreal, and for S/S 19, our serving of weirdness comes from American fashion designer Brandon Maxwell. Following up on last season's transparent bag trend, Maxwell sent a model down the runway clutching a Perspex bag that contained a bottle of bubbly.

Naturally the blogging crowd went wild for the accessory, which also featured a gold initial fastening, gold handle and knotted initialled silk scarf. It might not be the most practical piece around right now, but anything that combines fashion and wine is never a bad thing in our books. Our 2019 picnic plans suddenly look a whole lot chicer.
