I think we can all agree that the Chanel hula hoop handbag is not really a bag- its art. On the runway it serves as a buzzworthy piece of couture- definitely not something you’d expect to be translated into mainstream fashion (can you imagine getting into a cab with that thing?!), so when I came across this replica on GoJane.com, it gave me definite pause. If a piece has obviously been created for pomp and pageantry, what’s the point of knocking it off? What woman with even a sliver of interest in fashion would actually buy it?! Is there anything more cringey than faux Chanel? So many “whys?!”. What are your thoughts?
