JIL SANDER // MARKET BAG DIY



I (like everyone else) was obsessed with Raf Simons' spring 2011 collection for JIL SANDER. I fell in love with this orange acetate market bag from the get go; such a simple idea. Unfortunately, they sold out on Net-a-Porter so quickly I couldn't get my hands on one. (so cheap too)

Then came the slew of knockoffs from other brands, and I couldn't justify buying any of them. None of them got the right "slouch" from the original. I figured I should just make myself one. I don't know why I hadn't thought to DIY this sooner, but anyways here it is. I used black pleather, because I couldn't get my hands on real leather. Definitely going to remake this.


I made a little video because the pictures just weren't doing it justice. That's a great mix of Destiny's Child's Emotions (lol) by E+E playing in the background in case you were wondering. DESTINE+E'S CHILD by E+E

I was going to post a step-by-step tutorial, but it was pretty straightforward. If anyone wants tips/the actual steps just let me know! I haven't had the time (do i ever) to take proper outfit pics, so here's a blurry shot from my phone of what I was wearing the other day (nothing special but you can see the bag in action). Totally into 90's grunge these days too, in case you hadn't noticed.

  3. 90s grunge, werk. I cant believe they were only 81 dollars. Why was I unaware of this before now! They were practically giving them out for free! And yours turned out so well. It looks really cute I think Im going to try to make it. Perfect bag to carry my shit around for school.

  4. Damn, that's pretty tight. Also, I like your look. Uh, DC3 'Survivor' was, like, one of my first CDs. How'd I forget about that song? :) Has a glistening yet ominous quality with that new bg music.
