Logo-Friendly Has Replaced Eco-Friendly at Chanel
After the advent of eco-conscious bags (Anya Hindmarch's "I'm not a plastic bag" skyrocketed that trend), it became cool to sport a reusable tote in lieu of a plastic bag. Chanel's "Essential Handbag" almost looks like a reusable shopping bag with its ginormous logo and store location emblazoned on the front--almost, that is, until you realize that this tacky bag is made of leather and therefore pokes fun at all of the environmentally conscious people out there who actually care about using vegan, organic, and eco-friendly products. Shame on you, Karl Lagerfeld!
