I’m not sure if you have noticed, but one signature bag trend this Fall/Winter is the quirky designs inspired by food packaging. After all, who would be able to forget the loud statement Jeremy Scott made for Moschino earlier this year?

Recently, whilst doing my online window shopping, I stumbled upon the Kate Spade Hello Shanghai Takeout Bag, which essentially is a purse that takes the shape of the Chinese take-out boxes.


Made of cow hide leather, other than the familiar red pagoda logo that you see on many Chinese take-out on US sitcoms, there is even a “Thank you” and “Enjoy” letters printed at the side of the box. Besides its quirky look, I totally love that this box comes with a shoulder strap.



A different kind of “takeout bag” – the Happy Meal bag from Moschino, made with 100% calf skin. Probably the most expensive McDees ever.


Moschino also has a “Mr Funtastik” series, including this foldover bag, which could be used as a shoulder bag or folded over as a clutch. Like the real food packaging, this “Moschino sized” Mr Funtastik pack even features a Nutritional Facts table at the back!



Anya Hindmarch released a very whimsical bag collection for Autumn as well, featuring Kellogg’s cornflakes box clutch and McVities Digestives biscuit purse.  The Frosties clutch was sold out on her website!


Chanel’s “Lait de Coco” bag inspired by milk carton.


Olympia Le-Tan round clutch, inspired by a tin of Parisian caviar. Nom nom nom…
