Chanel 2009: I Am A Plastic Bag


First, Lucy Liu and Michelle Obama cinched their waists with plastic belts. Loved it. Then, Maison Martin Margiela showcased plastic shoulder pads. Hated it. And now, Karl Lagerfeld has made plastic bags couture. Not sure what I think of it.

In theory, it makes sense to have a plastic container shield your quilted Chanel purse. This way you can make your investment last. But is it wearable off the runway? Probably not. But it does make a fab gift. In one clutch, you get Chanel makeup, an iPod, sunglasses, perfume and an iconic purse. Karl, my birthday is next week if you’re feeling generous!
