THE TRANSPARENT SHOPPER IS GOING TO BE *THE* BAG OF SPRING

Play peek-a-boo with this season’s favourite material: plastic.

By Ana Zupanoska

While most of us associate plastic bags with the grocery run, transparent shoppers are fast-becoming the fashion trend of spring — and we want to get our hands on one, stat.

Yes, you heard correctly. Plain ol' plastic is all the rage right now. At the Céline spring/summer '18 show in February, models were sent down the catwalk clutching a chic plastic shopper — which retails for a cool $750. The trend has also been seen on the runways of Chanel, Maison Margiela and Burberry.

But the runway is not the only setting where these plastic shoppers are getting noticed. Fashion bloggers around the world have already flooded our Instagram feeds with their own personal take on the trend, proving the accessory is more than just a carryall for your groceries.

Can't afford the Céline plastic bag? No problem. A number of labels are starting to cleverly reinvent this '80s throwback in a way that every girl can easily inject into their daily wardrobe.

Work this trend with your everyday essentials and style it back with your favourite denim ensemble for casual off-duty vibes. From bucket bags to round handle designs, we've picked our favourite plastic finds to get you started.
