Hermes Giant Pants

Hermes Giant Pants

Haute Couture is not always deconstructed georgette ballgowns or starched and origami’d canvas batwings. Sometimes it’s Giant Pants.

This image of a frankly fabulous Hermes wool jumpsuit comes to us from the well-named Giant Pants of the Thirties blog, which features, you guessed it, Giant Pants of the Thirties. For those of us with a PBS-nurtured fondness for Oxford Bags or Beach Pajamas, this is a visual feast not to be skipped. Who wants anorexic pants when they can have voluptuousness in twill, moleskin or corduroy?

Bag it!

Canvas "Birkin"

Looking for a trendy bag on a budget? No need to comb eBay for the now-legally-restricted Jelly Kelly (as I learned from tragic experience, that translucent plastic they’re made of sucks up dirt and will NOT let it go, so they don’t last even if they are totally waterproof). Now you can get your green on and go cheap chic at the same time with these charming, witty, probably illegal 100% canvas Birkin-printed bags. Sadly likely to go off the market soon because Hermes is NOT down with the “right to satire” statutes, and guaranteed NOT to be waterproof, so even in the realm of knockoffs, inferior to the immortal Kelly bag.

Bi-curious?

Today’s trendoid is not complete without a green machine. Which of these designer contraptions will wheel away with your heart?

The economical $3500 Hermes:

Or what about the veddy, veddy posh $17,000 Chanel (at that price it should come with a decorative manservant to pedal)

Or, if geek-flavoured laziness is your thing, how about a nice Chanel Segway?
