Chanel can make a lot of quirky, one of a kind items with a splash of couture – here’s one proof. But one piece in particular has nothing to do with the french fashion house – the Bagel Bag.
Worn by actress India Menuez at a Chanel event, the innocent, tasty bag caught the attention of several bloggers, socialites and journalists, who branded it as Chanel. But no, folks, it has nothing to do with a Kaiser, but a Wise-r. The interesting accessory is a “dysfunctional art object” by Canadian artist Chloe Wise.
“People are raving that ‘the bagel is going to be the hottest new trend this spring’—I’m just LOL-ling”, said Wise for Glamour.
Can someone blame her really? Every bit of unusual, slightly-artsy invention is now dubbed as a fashion trend. Trends have become synonymous with wacky ideas like rubber bracelets, mustache everything, feather hats, flatforms – nobody makes the difference now between true art and over-the-night, between-a-glass-or-two products.
So, it’s no wonder that a tongue-in-cheek piece like hers is seen as serious trend by many. In a hurry to have the latest item with a designer label, everybody has forgot to pass it through their fashion filter.
Chanel-lo?! Do you really love the fashion house? Then don’t be more excited for a bagel bag than a leathery, lady-like, classic piece!
