Wearable Whimsy

Among the photogenic monochromatic Chanel fashions walking down the runway streets in very French style, was a whimsical bag that summed up the whole cinematic-themed Metiers d’Art show: the Camera Bag.

The acrylic shoulder bag in the shape of a vintage movie camera is listed as the Chanel Movie Camera Minaudiere, the price is upon request.

I can envision this as an objet d’art in a fashionable woman’s dressing room. But would you wear it?

Paying homage to Paris as the ever-reigning fashion capital of the world, the show was also, sadly, an ode to a lost city as well:

I didn’t know when we started the idea of Paris in Rome that it would be the best moment to show a perfect, romantic Paris when Paris today in reality is the opposite of a romantic city. It’s really unbelievable, no?
