Hooked: Chanel Miniature Hula Hoop Bag

You can’t hula-hoop with it, unless you’re Barneys’ Minnie Mouse, but you’ll be able to dig out your phone a lot easier with this miniature hoop bag from Chanel’s spring 2013 collection. Karl Lagerfeld explained that the larger version, while assumed to be a showpiece only, will indeed be produced because of its real-world application: sticking it in sand at the beach and throwing your towel over it to dry. So maybe the smaller bag—only 24 inches in diameter—could double as a dish rack. After all, at $2,400, it’s about half the price of Chanel’s classic 2.55 quilted bag.
