Gotta Have It: Chanel Coco Cocoon Bag
Stars like Claudia Schiffer, Gwen Stefani and Cameron Diaz already have this season’s IT bag.
Lilly Allen is holding this season’s hottest accessory: Chanel’s Coco Cocoon Large tote. As the face of the Coco Cocoon ad campaign, the singer was among the first to own a piece from the collection, which features reversible quilted nylon bags that Hollywood is going kooky over.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Slumdog Millionaire‘s Freida Pinto, and a handful of their fellow lucky leading ladies have already snagged their own Coco Cocoon bags. But others like Blake Lively are searching high and low for the in-demand accessory, which is currently sold out in Chanel’s New York boutiques according to the New York Post.
Perhaps celebrities love the bag because it gives them a lot of bang for their buck — the bag goes for $2,595 to $4,000, depending upon whether you pick up the small or large version. Either way, it’s like getting two bags in one. One side has soft, shiny horizontal quilting that resembles a puffy winter jacket. Flip it inside out, and you’ve got Chanel’s classic quilted pattern, lined in red – which was Coco Chanel’s favorite color to line her bags.
If you love the look but aren’t enamoured with the price tag, here are some less expensive versions:
