Novelty bags have been in the market for years. Eye-catching and sometimes LOL-worthy, it’s no wonder why many brands, such as Judith Leiber and Charlotte Olympia, curate eclectic pieces that are unique and creative. Last year, Balenciaga drew both admirers and critics alike when it launched its “IKEA-inspired” tote bag (that costs more than US$2,000, mind you), a blue carrier that looked suspiciously like IKEA's $0.90 “FRAKTA” bag.
Love ’em or hate ’em, these gimmicky bags are a whole lot of fun and will give any outfit a positive spin, not to mention make you a stand-out. Here are some quirky options you can flaunt at your next party.
