Virgil Abloh’s Latest Off-White

Just when you thought Simon Porte Jacquemus had designed fashion’s most outrageous It bag—a mini bagso mini that it only holds a stick of gum or a pair of AirPods (without the case!)—Virgil Abloh slides in with a surprising counter. Sure, the Jacquemus bag holds just one or two little things, but Abloh’s literally holds nothing. Dubbed the Meteor, Off-White’s new top-handle purse comes with giant holes punched straight through the leather, as if hit by a perfectly-round meteor. The holes are slightly askew so you can slide your hands through and carry the bag like a clutch, but anything you might put inside—an iPhone, a card case, lip balm, headphones—would instantly fall out. In fact, in a release, the brand explicitly says the bag is “unfunctional.”
