Massive Chanel bag in hula hoops wows on runway at Paris Fashion Week
Will fashion fanatics run circles around each other to get a hold of this oversized purse? Chanel sent a model down the runway for its Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Week wearing an enormous white quilted ‘purse,’ balanced artfully between two black hula hoops.
The bag itself, carried by a model in a swimsuit with the brand’s interlocking C logo, is constructed with the brand’s iconic quilted leather. Ideal for that wealthy matron who is weary of carrying a simple canvas tote to the beach or to the pool. The brand’s frantic spokespeople said they didn’t have a price for the oversized accessory -- or the silver-bubble jewelery that all the models wore.
While the circular bag may not be practical to shoppers, some predict that its concept is a design winner. “While this is pure fantasy, baby versions, with miniature circular straps, will surely fly off the shelves.”
