The Top Ten Chanel Purses and Handbags of 2008

You knew it was coming - inevitably, every fashionista worth his or her critical stare and designer digs must pay homage to Coco Chanel. I am no exception; why would I even want to be?! The lady revolutionized the way we see fashion, laying the foundations upon which all of modern ladies’ fashion is built. Thanks to her, ladies can wear anything men can - oversized cardigans, slacks, shots, mens shirts. We also have her to thank for the sweeping popularity of jersey-knit and more flowy, comfortable fabrics. Women used to be confined to long skirts and full-on dresses: Chanel gave them the freedom and flexibility provided by alternate modes of dressing. As for the 21st century, well, we’re still waiting for someone as visionary as Chanel - someone who could take a common affliction of humanity and turn it into an aesthetically pleasing pillar of design.

OK, enough on Chanel herself. For all you stylish ladies out there, I’m writing a post on Chanel Purses and Handbags. We all know that none of you would be caught dead without a Chanel clutch with your evening gown, or a Chanel tote hanging by your bed… Or the legendary crossed C’s on some sort of purse in your room (or on a pedestal or with a spotlight shining on it). The point is, women (and some, ah, guys?) have fallen under the spell of Chanel - and the easiest way to quell the craving is by sporting a Chanel bag. So, without further ado, I present: The Top 10 Chanel Purses and Handbags of 2008 as per the Gospel According to Fashion Hobo!!!
