L' Angleterrible Bag

You already know how much I heart Alexander MacQueen’s Britannia clutch, with its spookily elegant skull closure.

Now Chanel has embraced the Union Jack. Vive l’Angleterre!

Yesterday I was paging through Bazaar and saw a photo of Agyness Deyn with what looked to be a Chanel clutch. Quick research this morning discovered a quilted Chanel Union Jack shoulder bag, complete with the gold chain strap that I’m never fond of.

The strap is, though removable, and there’s even a wrist strap that can be attached. And you can rent it for under $100 a week at Bag, Borrow, or Steal (now called Avelle?!). Qu'est-ce que c'est?

But seriously, this bag looks like a high end rip-off to me. I’d rather spend my virtual thousand-plus dollars on the cunningly delightful MacQueen.

I'm still stuck on the fact that Bag, Borrow or Steal changed their name.

After all that hype and product placement in the "SATC" movie? How is anyone going to know who they are now?

I agree with you, Miss cav.
That clutch is 1000 times better.
