Chanel’s “Essential” Handbag

By  March 16, 2009

If you’re going to do a label, do it big and do it with unapologetic style. Label aficionado Karl Lagerfeld has come out with a leather shopping tote from the house of Chanel that’s functional and fearlessly fashionable. Best off it gives the appearance that you have perpetually just shopped in the house’s luxurious boutique. It comes in black, white, and light pink. (So Chanel.) Prices range from $1525 for the small bag to $2995 for the largest one. Just picture skipping down Rue Cambon with your Mary-Jane pumps, shopping bag in one hand and éclair in the other. Its the ultimate status symbol.~ Maria Denardo
