Bag-ette – the bag you can eat!

The Bag-ette - an ideal place to keep your dough

Fashion designers are well known for creating collections of unusual garb that although eye-catching on the cat walk have no practical purpose in our everyday lives. Who can forget Bjork’s swan dress or Britney Spears in her tartan diapers? However, in honour of Paris Fashion week, which started yesterday, Yarpnews thought we would share with our readers one of the more useful fashion designs, which is sure to become the toast of the high street.

The clever design team at Katja Gruijters (www.katjagruijters.nl) has used their loaf to come up with this handy bag-ette. This stylish bag is certainly a cut above the rest, made from bread, it’s a great place to store your dough and should you get hungry when you’re out and about, you’ve already got your hands on the beginnings of one great sandwich.

Whichever way you slice it, you can’t have your bag and eat it, but maybe that’s not such a crumby idea. Hopefully a larger suitcase version will soon be in development, so if you’re flying abroad and end up with excess baggage, you can eat it.

A fishy shoe tale to soothe your soul

Fish flops, the stinky shoes that soothe your soul

The very newest in footwear fashion is causing a storm on the cat walk and among cats in general because the latest look uses fish as its inspiration.

“I feel that most shoes have no soul,” simpered self absorbed Fashion Designer Fin Marlin, “it’s not my plaice to dis other designers, but my designs are not only inspired by fish, they are made from them.”

Mr Marlin’s range of shoes includes fish flops, herring bone sandals and red snapper stilettos.  The designer prides himself in using authentic materials and so each pair of shoes is genuinely unique.

“I only use real fish products in my designs. If you own a pair of my shoes you can guarantee that you will know that you are wearing a one-off original. They are so elite that most people can’t afford to wear them – you know you’ve made it when you’ve got your foot in a Marlin.”

Fortunately, for fashionistas Mr Marlins designs look, feel and smell like they have just come straight from the sea. So if you do manage to save up enough money to afford to buy a pair of Marlin shoes you will be able to confirm that they are original by the long line of cats that will suddenly show interest in your feet. The shoes are also bio-degradable and so if you ever get bored of them, you can always bury them in your garden 🙂

The rubber gimp boot hat is back!

The stylish rubber gimp boot hat

Fans of the rubber gimp boot hat will be pleased to hear that it is making a come back.

Originally popular in the 1950s, the squeaky, smelly headgear soon fell out of favour, with many people preferring to wear a nice bobble hat to keep their heads warm. However, the recent freak weather conditions, which dumped snow all over the northern hemisphere has seen people reaching for the fashion favourite once again.

Practical and stylish, the rubber gimp boot hat not only keeps your head dry but it will also come in handy should you slip in the snow because the clever in-built ‘tread’ pattern located at the top of the hat acts as a buffer that is designed to protect your head.

One fan, Ivor Fetish, explained why he likes wearing rubber gimp boot hats. He said: “Ish shust luff itch, itches shuu shekshy.” Unfortunately Mr Fetish was wearing his boot hat at the time.

Rubber gimp boot hats come in a range of sizes and designs. If you are lucky, you will be able to participate in the bargain of the century as most shops are currently selling two rubber gimp hats for the price of one.
