This bag probably seems really random if you’re not a modern art fan. But do a Google search for Jeff Koons and it’ll start to make more sense. As an art history major, you might think I learned all about him in undergrad, but funny enough I actually learned more about him in law school (he gets sued a lot –  those pesky copyright laws)!

So why do I have a handbag with Jeff Koons’ famous balloon dog on it? Because Koons has partnered with H&M to celebrate the opening of a new museum-inspired H&M store in NYC, and starting July 17, a limited number of these bags will be sold at select stores, on H&M’s website, and at the Whitney Museum.

I wouldn’t classify it as an “everyday” bag, but you have to admit it adds a little something unique and unexpected to this outfit! I’ll probably be sharing my bag with Kristin, because when she saw it she had the reaction of a small child who’s just seen…oh, I don’t know…a balloon animal.

If you want to get your own Koons for H&M balloon dog bag, they’re $49.99. I don’t know exactly how many there are or how popular they’ll be, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea to stalk the website tomorrow if you can’t live without one. Or if you live in a major US city, they might be in a store near you (the info I have says Chicago, LA, and Dallas). Good luck!

  1. You look great and I love the way you styled the bag with the top. It’s a perfect color combination! I only found out about the collaboration a week ago between Koons and H&M. I am going to see his retrospective at the Whitney in New York and hopefully see the new flagship H&M store this summer.

  2. Great outfit as always. There was something about that bag that I couldn’t stop thinking about. Then I realized why. On a visit to the New York city Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2008 there was a Koon’s art display there. That’s where I saw the gigantic dog in person.
