"If your project doesn't work, look for the part that you didn't think was important" - Arthur Bloch

I'm all for multi-tasking...and 'craft' projects that take almost no time or effort to accomplish...but British Vogue's suggestion to "get ahead" of next spring's satchel trend by tying a scarf onto your handbag to create a strap seems a little too lazy (even for me).

Impractical too...you're either going to ruin a perfectly good scarf by attaching it to too heavy a bag...or create an impractical lightweight, too light to actually carry anything (and therefore failing to fulfill the remit of being a satchel).

Egad, I'm turning into a craft curmudgeon...or maybe I'm just jealous of the Hermès bag used in this experiment...

    Jesus, that's the best they could come up with? The imagination did not stretch as far as a belt? (Which would have been equally ugly, but far more functional.)

    Yeah, the scarf-strap thing seems structurally unsound. At least braid them or something, not that scarves are designed for the kind of grime they'll accumulate from shoulders and hands. I love the quote, though.
