chloe wise’s carby bag sculptures

By

Carrie Bradshaw’s bag of choice – the Fendi Baguette – has been making a bit of a comeback over the past year or so (which should come as a surprise to no one, what with the return of Y2K and all that). In the spirit of designer accessories named after tasty carbs, we decided to revisit Bread Bags – a collection of sculptures created by Canadian artist Chloe Wise between 2013 and 2015.

Unfortunately, the syrupy Chanel pancake purse, Prada challah backpack and Louis Vuitton baguette are not actually edible, since they’re made of oil-painted urethane (plus all the usual stuff you’d find on a handbag, like chains, leather and shiny designer labels). That doesn’t make them any less of a feast for the eyes, though. Pop over to Chloe’s website if you’d like to spy the full collection.
