A thousand dollar trashbag

First the Balenciaga Motorcycle bag, then the YSL muse bag, now the new IT bag is...a $1000 Chanel trashbag? Yes, it's true, Chanel's Cabas Vinyl Shopper is sparking a waiting list of hopefuls itching to tote the large trashbagesque purse on their arms. Goes to show that when you slap on a couple of interlocking C's on something as simple as a trash bag, (To be fair, it's polyester), and put a ribboned chain on it, people will still go wild for it. I mean , you can totally look at it as chic and sophisticated in a modern interpretation, but you can also think of it as a Chanel-Hefty trashbag collaboration at the same time.

Ironic- Kate Moss, the one model who can model a trash bag and still make it sell, is carrying a trashbag.

i'm not a fan of how utterly shiney it is, or the handles. it is a little too much for me.
