Follow us on Twitter tonight for LIVE tweets from the Chanel party and dinner with Karl!!
I am attending the Chanel cocktail party and a dinner with the Kaiser himself tonight– you all know how I feel about Chanel so you can imagine how excited I am right now. I’ve had a very long love affair with Chanel bags. In college, I carried my jumbo black lambskin Chanel classic flap to class– it fit a notepad, a change of clothes (Kelly & I spent the night at each other’s apartments a lot, she was always amazed how much clothes I could fit in my Chanel) and all of my cosmetic essentials. It was my very first Chanel bag and it’s been lovingly used for so long that the lambskin is now distressed (it is so much more fun to distress a bag than to buy one done for you!). Since then I’ve amassed dozens of Chanel bags and each carries with it special memories that no photo album nor journal can capture. The allure of the Chanel bag is as much in the selection of one as it is in owning one. When I look for a new Chanel, it is done with careful thought and consideration. I never ask friends for opinions because a Chanel purchase is so special, no matter if it’s your first or 50th, it should be a very personal decision.
For the Soho Boutique Exclusive bags, I’m aching for the red python (above). Red is such a powerful color and done in python, it’s a major statement but the tassles give it a playfulness that is very me. The bag also comes in gray or brown python (jump for more photos).
Size 15.5 x 26 x 10cm. Price: $4,900 at Chanel boutique in Soho.
