Ok, it has a practical use. But really, you are buying this Shein X Wejdene cassette tape bag for one thing. The look. Perhaps the price too.
After all, there are plenty of modestly-sized, cross body bags out there if you want one. Too many to mention. But not too many that look like this.
The humble cassette tape, not unlike vinyl, has gone from being seen as yesterday’s technology to something far more hip. In an era of cloud-based music, some people still want to own and collect music. Vinyl is still king, but there is a growing demand for cassette tapes right now. Who knows, maybe even CD will have a revival at some point in the future?
Anyway, if you have a love of cassettes – or just like the retro appeal of the cassette tape – then this might well be for you.
As I said, this is a small bag with a chain for over your body, with enough space for the bare essentials. It’s made of PU leather and the selling point is the look of the tape on the exterior. A clasp on the top keeps everything in place too.
That’s about it really. If you love a cassette, then it might appeal. If you don’t, perhaps looks elsewhere. It does have one other selling point though, which is the price. You can pick up one of these for just £13 online.
