As we review 2018, it's clear that irony has been trending across the board. Just look at Balenciaga's SS19 Comic Sans MS-style print dress, New York City bags (for which it got sued for copyright infringement), and Gucci's derided $870 distressed sneakers. But the year is not over, and neither is the irony, it seems. German brand pinqponq has just released its KART bag, described by the brand as an “urban shopper trolley,” which we guess is a euphemism for the carrier cart old ladies wheel to the grocery store. It's a similar vibe to A$AP Rocky's recent look, which included an all-Gucci Babushka.
Arriving in two colorways, red/silver and black/silver, the KART has a laptop/tablet compartment, a shoe compartment, a document sleeve, can be used as a shopping trolley, backpack, carry-on, or messenger bag, and has a capacity of up to 60 liters. As well as being the first attempt at making granny trolleys fashionable, the KART's fabrics are 100 percent made from recycled plastic bottles. Shop the KART below.
What do you think — weird flex, but okay, or has irony gone too far? Let us know in the comments.
