Cameron Diaz in Chanel Cocoon Bag


First of all, how cute is Cameron Diaz? Having interviewed and interacted with her in the past, I can say without a doubt she is one of the most perky, easy-going and multifaceted actresses in the industry. I’ve noticed that while she’s fully embraced the relaxed, comfort-chic California vibe when it comes to dressing off-camera, it’s all about her accessories. Nothing punches up humdrum tees, jeans and UGG boots than a punctuation mark in the form of a discreetly conspicuous handbag (yes, such a thing does exist). To wit, check out Chanel’s Cocoon handbag (the one Lily Allen modeled in the Chanel campaign last fall), which Cameron was spotted sporting on a recent errand run. How much do you love that she chose a fiery red over boring black? Aside from a subtle CC logo emblazoned on the handle, nothing about this bag screams Chanel–which is to be appreciated in these economic times. Money aside, this lightweight nylon-and-lambskin bag, secured by a metal clasp on top, is as practical as it stylish: inner pockets galore, super soft handles, waterproof and easy to wipe down! (It also doubles as a fabulous pillow in case you were wondering). If Chanel made the Cocoon in a larger messenger style, it would be the perfect diaper bag. The best part? For those days you want a more subtle approach, the Cocoon fully reverses to a subdued navy with red trim.

  1. debbie, it’s not fabric.

    It comes in either lambskin or nylon.

    The lambskin is divinely soft and luscious. I love mine to bits. 🙂

  2. I saw these in person when I got my grande shopper tote in Vegas in October. Not only are they overpriced but in person, the nylon looks super cheap! Even my hubby said it was a waste of a Chanel bag. Eek!

  3. Whoa, whoa. “In these economic times”, $2395 for a flanker to my parka?! I easily found similar cocoon bags for less than $30.

  4. My only question is why anyone would spend $2,395 for a handbag that more closely resembles a sleeping bag than a Chanel?

  5. I saw this bag in person and fell in love. It’s so cute and different. Would I spend that kind of money for a handbag? Of course not, I’m a teacher. If money were no object? Heck yeah!

  6. Was asked what the devil is in the end is the stuff, give him 42 dollars he did not Ganna take to the streets! Others described it as simply the scientific name brand bag Louis Vuittonstrange package, may have only the eldest daughter of bizarre style of Paris Hilton would like.

  7. If Vert Tonic was on steroids,Louis Vuitton New Vernis Colors for Spring 2010is its sober counterpart. This calm greenish yellow color took its name from Impressionism, an art movement that seeks to capture a feeling rather than accurate depiction. Available from January to May 2010
