The art of design is subjective and open to interpretation. Whether its fashion, marketing, home decor, or any other subset of the design field, sometimes well-intentioned designs aren’t always perceived as the designer had intended. Here are some of our favorite and hilarious design fails from around the world that make us really appreciate the value of a second opinion. Enjoy!

The tiny Jacquemus Mini Le Chiquito bag is smaller than a credit card and can be held in the palm of your hand. It was the biggest, smallest thing to come out of Paris fashion week.
"I have been wearing scrunchies for years," the 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice told the Wall Street Journal on March 19. "My best scrunchies come from Zurich. Next best, London, and third best, Rome."

After viewing a picture of the Queen visiting a Manchester bombing victim, I got to wondering what someone of her status would carry in a purse, or even WHY she would carry a purse. I mean, she has a staff to do that kind of stuff.
Turns out I'm far from alone in this, and she not only uses it to carry her queenly gear, but also to send silent signals to her staff about her moods and needs. Fascinating.

The toad would visit Newsome's porch almost every night, seemingly just to say hi. After being touched by the little animal's friendliness, he decided to do something special for the little guy. In his own words, Newsome said he "decided to enter the world of toad millinery." For those not in the know, that means hat-making. One thing is for sure: this toad is the most fashionable animal in Alabama, hands down.

This photo collection titled Poorly Translated Asian Shirts implies that this kind of thing happens by accident, but I've seen some really weird stuff come out of Asia so I'm not convinced it isn't intentional.
The iconic Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star canvas hi-top shoe has been re-vamped and comes out at the end of July. Now featuring an arch-supporting insole, no-slip tongue, and a suede microfiber lining. Awesome.

Fitted and unlined glove from basking shark skin, with the mic-rose thorns inside. Should you put your hand in, you will discover that the thorns, all directed to slant inward, will lock your hand in place in the manner of, ten thousand fishhooks. Should you attempt to remove it, the thousands of thorns will bite into the skin. You can put the gloves on, but to remove them would mean to cut them off. Gloves for life, or for one wear - the ultimate and final commitment.
