Nik Bentel Says ‘You've Got Mail’ With A New, Luxury Standard Shipping Box Bag

You might've thought you'd seen it all in the fashion industry, but New York-based artist and designer Nik Bentel is back again with another unique bag. Previously, Bentel's Barilla pasta box bag sold out within a minute, but this shipment box bag brings a new sense of satire to the fashion space. 

Designed with vegan leather, the Shipping Box Bag features a magnetic opening and opens similarly to a standard cardboard box. The white carrying strap states, "Fragile: Handle with Care." The bag comes in two different versions, with the first printed with UV shipping label stickers. The other, in contrast, is an unadorned box with separate stickers so the buyer can customize their own package. 

At first glance, one might think it looks identical to your typical shipper, taking packaging design to a new, wearable level. 

The Shipping Box Bag will launch on July 21 at 10 a.m. ET on Bentel's website. The exclusive release will include only 100 bags, priced at $199 USD each.
