2019 First Terrible Fashion Trend – Human-sized Backpack?!
We had some terrible fashion trends back in 2018, from eerily tiny bumbags worn on belts, to sunglasses too minuscule delicate irises donned by the likes of Beyonce and Kendall Jenner.
And of course we can’t just forget Carmar’s ridiculously overpriced $223 “extreme cut-out jeans”, which literally didn’t feature enough denim to cover your own a*se.
We’re barely starting 2019 and we’ve been landed the first horrendous fashion trend in these comically large, human-sized backpacks.
Terrifying in their size, the oversized bags — sold by Plywood in Japan — are 180 litres and 100cm tall.
You could literally fit a small child in there, standing upright, with room to spare for their life’s possessions.
The enormous backpacks go from your shoulders right down to your ankles, and are wide enough to completely cover your body — handy if you’ve sat in anything unsavoury.
But alas, crimes against fashion are costly. This trendy look will set you back a solid $A348 — and that’s not including shipping from Japan.
Also, if you have any back issues you may want to give this one a miss; with nothing in it, the bag weighs 1.6kg, a measure that’s likely to skyrocket once the bag is stuffed full of your possessions — although it does feature a third middle strap to reduce back stress.
Wondering why the hell anyone would buy this? Hold tight — they’ve actually sold out in Japan. According to the website, they’re soon to be restocked.
To be fair, we’ve all heard of the capsule wardrobe. Literally being able to put the entire contents of your family’s wardrobes in your bag and cart them around is just the next step, right?
