Karl Lagerfeld sent some unusual looking bags down the runway for Chanel's spring 2013 collection debut. The bags reinvent the term "oversized" and are basically hula-hoops with purses attached. It's hard to imagine anyone besides Lady Gaga wearing one of these, but check out the picture below and let us know if Chanel's newest creation is fashion forward or a fashion flop.

Chanel is known for fantastic accessories. Whether it's the iconic 2.55 bag that is now more expensive than a small car, or shoes adorned with faux stalagmites, Karl Lagerfeld knows his ladies love their accessoires.

    LOL - I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I'd like to sell to anyone who buys this monstrosity! Can you imagine how many times you'd have to say "Excuse me" to all the people you bump throughout the day? ROFL

    I think it's hilarious, I love the fact that he put it on the catwalk (and he can get away with it because he's rich and well-known/highly regarded in the fashion world), but it's totally ridiculous.

    love the clothes, but the............. "thing she brought" ......that's a bad mistake, uniquely interesting but too unique to be in reality ~_~

    Lagerfeld is a relic and a total verbal fashion flop. Tired of the mean spirited tripe he parades around.

    Sorry, it's kind of cool, but it would get annoying to carry and it is kinda huge. I actually kinda like it. FASHION FORWARD!

    yet again a designer pushing the realm of practicality and feasibility... would it even fit in a car?

    This looks ridiculous...tho maybe if the purse part was removable, I'd bring it to the beach and do some hulas..

    Like most runway fashions, this is just to draw attention to their commercially available products that are far more practical. You never see any of the outlandish products in stores, but you sure notice them, and their label.
  • Milady 2012/10/08 09:24:59

    Pure stupidity! How easy would it be for someone to snatch that bag right off your shoulder?

    um do you know how easy it would be to steal something like that, and how annoying and childish it looks?lol from the side it would look a mother carrying her child's toys to work..

    It must be meant as a joke or to get attention to the collection. This is not a serious bag design.
