Chanel's Spring 2009 Handbags Are Too Clever By Half

Chanel's Spring 2009 Handbags Are Too Clever By Half

Karl Lagerfeld has always been a master at manipulating status symbols but we think his Chanel Spring 2009 handbags has finally replaced all reality and meaning with the iconic symbol of handbag. And that handbag is simply a Chanel shopping bag. 

It is some kind of twisted thing that it is as it is Disneyland simulacrum twice removed from an actual handbag. Frankly this bag is such a mind fuck we don't think any of our Baudrillard is going to help us figure it out. Its not an artificial placemarker for the real item despite its appearance because it is the REAL item and yet that item is not the item it purports to be. The image of the bag threatens to displace the real bag and yet that bag is the real bag. This is just all too much for us to process. Just WHOA.
