A Clutch Bag That Is a Baguette

Just when you thought fashion couldn’t get any more outlandish, there's always one brand that steps over onto the wild side. 

The latest luxury label causing shoppers to scratch their heads is Moschino, which has been mocked on social media for selling a clutch bag shaped like a baguette for £758! 

The bakery-inspired bag is made from leather with a three-dimensional baguette design embossed onto it. It also features a gold-plated Moschino logo, a brown lined interior and a magnetic seal. 

On Twitter, people have been gleefully mocking the design and its price tag. 

“£758 to look like you’re holding a Subway”, wrote one person. 

Another user shared a photo of a Crusty White Baguette from Sainsburys, which costs 95p, writing: “Biggest dupe going, save yourself £757.15”. 

A third person commented: “Needs some ham and cheese on that.” Another wrote: “So pigeons can attack me, no thanks”. 

Moschino has become well-known for its quirky designs, especially when it comes to bags. The Italian luxury fashion house famously also sells handbags that resemble everything from croissants and cigarette lighters to a slice of birthday cake and a pizza box.

I wonder who buys them?! 

The pressure on manager Neil Lennon intensified further as his faltering Celtic fell 13 points behind Scottish Premiership leaders Rangers with a 1-1 draw against St Johnstone in Glasgow on Sunday. 

St Johnstone went ahead in the seventy-ninth minute – but Mohamed Elyounoussi's header restored parity with seven minutes remaining. 

This is getting depressing!
