Famous brand Off-White introduces bizarre $ 1,700 & non-functional & # 39; handbag with huge holes in the sides, making it impossible for the wearer to carry anything
- Off-White, the Virgil Abloh brand, unveiled its newest bag for the Paris, France fashion show on Thursday
- The bag with the title The Meteor ($ 1,665) is a bag with a handle at the top with holes that are perforated through the leather, making it impossible to carry items
- The brand acknowledged that it was a & # 39; non-functional & # 39; bag for consumers
- Off-White has released the bag to challenge the concept of a bag itself, one of the most common objects in our daily lives.
- This & # 39; non-functional & # 39; bag comes from the trend to take a wallet with you
First came the trend of the micro wallet, which could only fit someone's lipstick or a single AirPod into the small bag.
But now Virgil Abloh's Off-White brand is turning the fashion world upside down with the release of the intentional & # 39; non-functional & # 39; handbag.
The Meteor is the newest Off-White carrying bag, but the design has large holes that are directly perforated through the leather, so the bag cannot carry items without falling out.

New concept: the bag with the title The Meteor ($ 1,665) is a bag with a handle at the top with holes in the leather, making the bag unable to carry items
When announcing the launch of the handbag, the brand announced in a press release that it was & # 39; not functional & # 39; wash for the consumer, Fashion reports.
The purpose of the bag is to & # 39; the concept of a bag itself, one of the most common objects in our daily life & # 39; to challenge.

Whether it is functional or not, Off-White sells the fashion accessory for $ 1,665 for anyone looking for a bag with no items in it.
Off-White also sells a similar bag to the new Meteor bag without holes.
The Jitney bag has a similar design with the arrows that cross over the flap of the handbag. But the item offers a more affordable and realistic option for customers because it is priced at just over $ 1,000 without gaps.
Designer Virgil is known as the fashion protégé of Kanye West.
He then launched the Off-White brand in 2012, which on Thursday introduced the next spring 2020 collection with the non-functional bag in Paris, France.
Handbags have recently become a fashion accessory used by designers to get conversations in the industry.
Earlier this year, the French fashion brand Jacquemus debuted a microbag during the Paris Fashion Week that only had room for one small item.
Old trend: this & # 39; non-functional & # 39; bag comes after the trend of wearing a micro-purse

The brand, already known for its micro handbags that cost between $ 345 and $ 795, sent models onto the runway with tiny accessories that hung on a single finger.
Most people thought that the microbag was the most non-functional option there is. That is until Off-White has issued its Meteor bag.
Virgil chose four female creatives in the fashion industry – Ana Gimeno Brugada, Carla Sozzani, Patricia Urquiola and Karla Otto – to model the new bag for the brand's campaign images, as opposed to hiring models in their twenties.
& # 39; Each muse stylizes the Meteor in her own way and extends (her) own superior style to this new classic, & # 39; Virgil told about the decision.
When he talked about the bag, he added: & # 39; Under the guise of & # 39; women's clothing & # 39; the Meteor bag brings the idea of a strong mind (something that is able to withstand natural disasters and lead a life) into life. & # 39;
People can get hold of the non-functional Meteor bag from September 29 in selected stores.
