The Chanel Coco Cabas

Helen Lee December 25, 2006 14

Add the Chanel Coco Cabas to your list of instant IT bags.

If you happen to walk past one of these bags on the street you could easily mistake it for a trash bag, but look closer.

This Chanel black vinyl Coco Cabas bag comes with the iconic Chanel chain handles, a signature double C charm and the double C etched into the side of the bag. It’s ordinary trash bag – they also retail at $995 to $1,285.

While black vinyl is the most popular, it can also come in leather and – if you can find it- satin. They’re the hottest accessory in Paris and New York, with a months long waiting list at Chanel boutiques.

It’s a shame we’re not a beauty editor or director at a top fashion magazine, beauty ed’s were gifted a much coveted Chanel Coco Cabas last week as a holiday present. They arrived in oversized Chanel boxes at publishing houses like Hearst and Conde Nast all wrapped with white satin Chanel ribbon. Talk about promoting Christmas Cheer.

Can’t stand waiting for one? Bag Borrow or Steal have it for you to borrow weekly or monthly. Get in quick!

You can even match them with these Chanel black vinyl knee high folder over boots. For pictures of the Coco Cabas bag being toted around the world, visit the NY Times and check out Bill Cunningham’s recent “On The Street” handbag expose.

    They are available (vinyl) but I’m not sure how hard they are to get… and they will ship to canada (chanel boutiques) they’re chanels over there too. You’d really have to call around. And its vinyl not patent unfortunately and the leather is super hard to get that i know for sure…. If you go to the you can find all this stuff out, thats how i know so much! Good luck!
