Chanel..Not Chanel

Carbs at Chanel…Really?

Not Chanel Bagel Bag

Actress India Muenez (Something in the Air, Mall and the upcoming Pretty in Green) wore this Bagel Bag to a big time star-studded Chanel No. 5 dinner in NYC. Bagels are a pretty fattening carb loaded breakfast food, that would probably not be consumed on a Chanel Model’s diet.  Although it could have been since Chanel did do the Grocery Store Runway Show during Paris Fashion Week for the Fall 2014 collection.

Turns out it’s a knock off. Or to keep it safe or politically correct, Canadian Artist’s Chloe Wise calls it a part of an ongoing Sculpture Series. I guess that’s how people get away with a knock off nowadays, they call it art. After a bit of internet searching, turns out this piece is actually entitled Bagel No. 5. India modeled the bag for C. Wise in a fake ad that went with the sculpture at a gallery showing. India mentioned to the artist that she was going to a Chanel dinner party and asked to borrow the cheeky breakfast bag. Of course the artist said Yes. I’d say, Quite a great way to get a ton of free publicity.

And since Moschino made all the McDonald’s inspired bags and phone cases in 2014, people probably thought it was a real Chanel piece. Would you wear it? Do you think it’s a knock-off? Is it cool to call it a piece of art? I wonder if it’s on sale now at Canal Street near Chinatown in NYC.  Hmm.

How bout’ the Moschino McDonald’s Gear? Would you rock these looks? Do you have friends who have these pieces? Or have you seen these on the streetz?  I saw an actual McDonald’s worker talking on her phone with the expensive Moschino McDonald’s case way out in the suburbs of Waukegan, Illinois around Memorial Day 2014. I thought I was seeing things, it was just one of those moments!

Have a nice week.  See you on the streetz.
