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

With New York Fashion Week underway, fashion folks have had their eagle eyes fixed on the runway, ready to spot the It pieces poised to hit our wardrobes next year. As always, among the good, the bad, and the ugly, there is the surreal, and for spring 2019, our serving of weirdness comes from fashion designer Brandon Maxwell.

On the heels of last season's transparent bag trend, Maxwell sent a model down the runway clutching a plexiglass 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 and initialed 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.
