An ingenious solution or just a gimmick?

Have you ever gone to a flower market, bought a bouquet and then pretty much ruined it on the way home (or maybe it just ruined your walk home with all the manoeuvring from arm to arm)? Zara has the perfect device so that you won't so much as lose a petal (or your temper): a flower-carrying bag, part-tote, part-sling. Is this the accessory we never knew we needed? Or should we start eye rolling right now?

It's basically a circle of fabric with two long handles attached so that you can place your stems flat inside and carry them around without anything getting crushed. Zara has two variations, one of which is printed with sprigs of blossoms, the other of which is a plain beige cotton-linen blend.

Both can easily fit a decently-sized bouquet, and will mean, when the time comes to pop it in a vase with some water, you've still got some flowers left to admire. Granted, nobody was crying out for such a device but it would look nice on Instagram. And maybe that's all the justification we need?
