Netizens' react to Nasi Lemak-inspired designer clutch
One of Hermes clutch collections has been going viral on social media recently – especially on the Southeast Asian part of the world – for having an uncanny resemblance to a very famous local dish known as Nasi Lemak.
The unique clutch was designed by one of the most renowned fashion designers in the world Jean-Paul Gaultier and was part of his Spring 2010 collection.

Though the fashion bag was created six years ago, it had only gone viral recently when Twitter users started to come across it, and as a result many can’t help but poke fun at the design.
