Celebrities Love…Chanel Lego Clutches

Celebrities Love Chanel Logo Clutches

Karl Lagerfeld knows what the fashion kids want, and the designer took us to an ultra-luxe Lego-land with the Chanel logo ‘Lego’ clutch.

The pint-sized Perspex purse debuted on Chanel’s Spring 2013 runway. Now the playful charmer, with its Crayola colours, has become an ‘it’ bag, punching up celeb looks at every turn. After all, the quirky, nostalgic logo clutches may be all fun and games, but they still wield the power of those interlocking double-Cs splashed across the side.

Up-and-coming starlet Hailee Steinfeld showed her style cred by clutching a lemon-drop yellow version at the Chanel Spring 2013 Couture show in Paris earlier this year. Also carrying off that sunny shade, DJ Leigh Lezark used the geometric bag to brighten her block-star dress at the Chanel Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner last week.

Taking her monochromatic ensemble to the next level, Diane Kruger recently went for a brick-red variation, worn with the iconic chain-link purse strap. And, just two nights ago, British songstress Rita Ora matched her hot-red lippie to her logo bag, which she crossed over a see-through trench. She completed the white-haute look with embellished, thigh-high Chanel Spring 2013 boots.

Other lovelies who won’t ‘lego’ of this logo clutch? British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley; ‘Vogue Japan’ editrix Anna Dello Russo; and French actress Elodie Bouchez.

Just think of the stylish fort you could build with these luxe Legos…

    As soon as I saw the pics, I thought of legos! I like that they’re funky, but I think they make the more stylish, fancy outfits look silly.

      Agree. Regardless of the couture house name, a good taste and judgement should rule. It is a funky and a very memorable piece, especially in primary colors. It looks silly as an accessory to an elegant attire.

    I love this clutch, especially in red.

    The only problem for me is their price.
    Anyone’s up for a plastic bag for 10,000$?

    I don’t like this bag.

    An ugly, gimmicky bag. The price tag is outrageous. I have a feeling this one will be left in the toy box once it’s newness wears off.

    That sheer trench is one of the most appealing things Rita’s worn, though of course she ruined it. The bag works with Diane’s look, but is too kitschy/cheesy otherwise. And SO expensive! It is a fun idea, though.
