Wild & Wooley at Chanel

I'm back with more on Chanel, because in addition to the novelty ice cube bags, the first faux fur Chanel bags in the history of the company hit the Fall '10 runway. The white puff above isn't too bad, but the rest remind me of Chubaka--not really the direction I hope for in a new Chanel bag. What are your thoughts?

    Where do I begin? Is there really anything constructive to say about bags that resemble some sort of yeti? PLEASE!!! That leather/tweed/faux fur patchwork tote is ATROCIOUS! Coco must be rolling around in her grave. Poor woman.

    I do love the Perspex bags. Unlike similar bags from Fendi's spring collection, these are opaque and will prove to be somewhat more functional. Karl must be in love with Perspex as of late because he's using it everywhere.

    Chanel is known for its classic, timeless bags. These furry things don't seem like they'll stand the test of time. Plus they are really ugly.

    Hahah, I know that last one is seriously as bad as some of those hideous LV bags from prior seasons...oh dear. And I am SUCH a classic Chanel bag fan. Well, it will be interesting to see what the sales are like.

    I like the white puff ball bag, but I wouldn't ever use something like this - so unpractical. The rest does remind of Chubaka - you're so right. Hee hee.
