Chanel Hula Hoop Bag Hits The Streets

Kyle Anderson and the Chanel Hula Hoop Bag After all of the hoopla surrounding the Chanel Hula Hoop Bag, we’ve been looking forward to seeing it hit the streets, and were curious who would be the first person to be rockin’ the new bag. Our friends at Fashionista were too. Their money was on Anna Dello Russo, the editor-at-large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan. But as they report, “It’s a good thing we’re not betting people, because while the bag did finally make an appearance, it wasn’t on ADR: It was on the arm of Marie Claire accessories director Kyle Anderson. We don’t know why we didn’t think of Anderson first. But when I passed him on the way to Vera Wang this morning–perched on the fountain of Lincoln Center, phone in one hand, hula hoop bag in the other–it all made sense. He’s got an outlandish (in the best way) sense of style and, well, he’s an accessories editor, so he has easy access.”

Chanel Hula Hoop Holder Takes Hooping to High Fashion

Chanel Hula Hoop Holder After all of the hoopla surrounding Chanel’s hula hoop bag that took Paris Fashion Week and the world by storm, our friends at Fashionista have discovered something even more amazing for us hoopers. Just in case there was any doubt left in your mind that hooping is highly fashionable, Chanel not only made the super large and small versions of the hula hoop bag for fashion week, there is also a Chanel hula hoop holder. Fashionista’s Executive Editor Leah Chernikoff found something pretty amazing while reviewing everything in the Chanel spring collection recently. She writes, “While the massive life-sized hula hoop bag stole the spring Chanel show there were some other hooping accessories that got overlooked. A mini-version of the bag will be produced and retail for $2400-3100. But when I previewed the Chanel spring collection I was surprised to find a quilted Chanel hula hoop holder had been created as well. No word on whether the holder is actually being produced (the ginormous hula hoop bag is not so we’re not holding our breath) – but we can’t imagine why not? Because who doesn’t need a Chanel hula hoop holder amirite?”

Why settle for a Chanel hula hoop bag when you can score a really cheap knock off by Anderson Cooper? Cooper, an American journalist, author, and television personality who is the primary anchor of the CNN news show Anderson Cooper 360°, created his version as a gift for Alexa Chung. Chung, a British television presenter, model and a contributing editor at British Vogue, told Cooper upon receiving the gift, “You really shouldn’t have, no I mean really you shouldn’t have.” Want to make your own knock off? We told you how over here.

Chanel Hula Hoop Bag Dazzles Paris Fashion Week


Karl Lagerfeld

Hooping is hot and getting hotter so it’s no wonder that it continues to be spinning into the world of high fashion. Only this time, rather than seeing models working the catwalk with their hoops or simply holding them in a photo spread, the hoop itself has become fashion. At Paris Fashion Week it was none other than Karl Lagerfeld himself showing off his new bag for the Chanel Spring 2012 collection. V Magazine reports, “Karl’s got it in the bag for Chanel Spring 2013, starting in a few minutes!” Yes, even if you’re not a hooper, come this Spring you’re going to want to be looking like one. The Telegraph reports, “The model in a double-C fronted swimming costume (shouldering an instant-classic extreme Chanel bag made of two hula-hoops and a semi-circle of that famous quilted leather) was global-warming ready. And yes, when the clustered spheres used throughout as buttons, chokers and bracelets changed color from pearl – an enduring Coco motif – to metallic they resembled droplets of mercury spilt from a shattered thermometer.” Will you be scoring yourself a hula-hoop Chanel beach bag? Fashionista writes, “Designers have been showing a delightfully wacky, charming, and surprising array of shoes and accessories for spring. Karl Lagerfeld continued the streak this morning at Chanel’s spring show, sending a bag down the runway that just might be the biggest Chanel bag ever, and was possibly made of hula hoops. We shudder to think of the price if that thing goes retail.”
