Would anyone buy a $480 coat made from recycled brown paper bag? I donít think so! Well maybe if the coat looks fashionable and irresistible! But as it is, it looks like itís been lifted straight from the trash. Thatís how terrible it looks.
This new $480 coat called the Paper Bag Jacket is designed by New York-based designer Aki Goto using discarded paper bags. Apparently, a vintage jacket was used a base for this coat and the paper bags were applied on it using glue. Varnish application gave it a glossy sheen. Strips of grey duct tape served as a finishing touch on the lapels.
