There is always a niche in the market under capitalism .
Heightened airport security has provided inspiration for next season's most desirable accessory: the see-through handbag.
Several leading designers, including Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana, Fendi and Oscar de la Renta, are producing high-fashion interpretations of the transparent plastic bags necessary for carrying liquids and medicines on to planes.
Early versions, which cost from £250 to £850, have already been spotted .
The bags are part of a wave of security-friendly travelling accessories about to arrive on the market.
These include self-weighing suitcases, belts and bras guaranteed not to set off metal detectors. Non-liquid-based toiletries including paper shampoo, solid shampoo bars and a pre-pasted toothbrush - just add the water.
