Fashion is funny funny thing.
In some parts of the world, trends and styles can completely dominate. While in the other, they can mean something entirely different.
We as Pakistanis have seen this kind of thing first hand.
First with our ‘chandelier earrings,’
And then our ‘jute benches.’
That’s one charpayii for 42,000 Rupees btw.
Clearly, there’s some kind of missing element here that has gora’s going crazy about our trends in the wrong way. Instead of taking inspiration from our designers and styles, they seem to be picking up on other aspects of our culture, whether they know it or not.
This brings us to the latest in high fashion in the states today, the Lota Bag.
Yep. And okay, it’s not really called a ‘lota bag,’ per say. No no, the bag has been named the ‘Keaton leather bag’ by STAUD, a prominent brand in the United States. We found this baby on Nordstrom, for a whopping 50,000 Rupees.
The brand is known for its statement bags and looks that not only separate them for other bucket bags within the trend, but also has inspired major futuristic vibes.

When your new @staud.clothing bag doubles up as a plant pot 💁🏻 Good value for money, there. Talking about this and a few of my other recent purchases in my latest blog post! 🌵 https://t.co/4uuWaJaXLa pic.twitter.com/25lpebZxSs

A little weird but love it.
And though we here at MangoBaaz are all about the latest in fashion trends and styles, this lota bag is not our favorite look at the moment.
I am sorry, but all this bag is missing is a handle for accurate pouring purposes. It legit looks like a lota.
For visual purposes. See? Just like the bag.
Even people on social media have been stating that the bag looks like a cauldron.

Others thought the bag looked like a few other things, lmao.

But nah, to us – this is a fancy leather lota and honestly, it would be quite chic sitting next to our toilet. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below! Love you.
