Elie Tahari “Emory” Handbag: Chanel Who?

elie_tahari_emory.jpg

How many Chanel-“inspired” bags have we seen that are ultimately nothing more than blatant knockoffs? Thank you, Elie Tahari, for getting us out of our tweed-and-chainstrap rut. You’ve given us the total Chanel vibe with none of the copycat trappings. The “Emory” shoulder bag is a Frugal Snob find that is sure to go a long way. Taking multi-tonal bluish-gray straw, weaving it perfectly and then laminating it, gives it the look of leather – or even the double-C’s tweed – without the lofty price.

A twofold chain-strap for sufficient support, mixed hardware, and naturalistic variation in weave, color, and texture give the handbag a rich look (and even an almost metallic effect). Embrace the irregularities – they only add to the deluxe air – and take it out to a nice lunch with the girls or on a date with your cutie. On Shopbop for $298
