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.
