Fashion Faux Pas: Chanel’s Hula Hoop Bag

Oh Chanel...usually I love everything you have to offer, but this Hula Hoop Bag is simply ridiculous.

Apparently the bag is for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2013 season and is to be used, more or less, as a beach bag.


People have questioned that and designer Karl Lagerfeld recently explained the influence behind the design:  “It’s for the beach. You need space for the beach towel. And then you can put it into the sand and hang things on it.”

Ummm...okay. How practical! That doesn't really explain anything at all.

I am so saddened by this because I love Chanel.  I just don't get how this design made it to the runway.  How do you even create a bag like this?!  All I can picture is a big, important meeting with an intern sitting in the corner, saying "let's make a circle bag!" as a joke.

Unfortunately, it's no joke.  You can purchase this bag for the Spring/Summer season.  I'm sure it's crazily expensive.  So the combo of shelling out tons of money and using a bag that can double as a hula hoop makes me want to punch someone in the face.

If I ever see anyone wearing this bag, they'd better watch out!

I'm not kidding.

That is all.
