Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and the Chanel Tweed Boucle Knitting Bag


Lagerfeld wasn't messing around when he and his design team created the Chanel Tweed Boucle Knitting Bag which Ashlee Simpson-Wentz appears to be so fond of nowadays. The design does, in fact, resemble a knitting bag. My grandmother used to keep one inside a large basket next to her sewing machine, and I remember pulling out the contents (much to her dismay) so I could carry the bag around as my purse. Who would have thought back then that such a thing would inspire the "Kaiser" to create a designer bag resembling it.

I wonder if Ashlee's affinity for the design comes from a similar experience to mine? It doesn't matter, really. What does matter is that Chanel, under Karl Lagerfeld's direction, has slowly evolved into a label that continues to churn out these "one-trick-pony" bags. We can't seem to get enough of them, and neither can Chanel's celebrity clientele. In case you're wondering, this is quite the roomy bag and would certainly work well as a day bag. I happen to adore it, but it's safe to say my childhood memories could be clouding my judgement. As this is an older design, it's not readily available at Chanel boutiques. You'll have to try your luck online if you want to snag one. Fashionphile, a reputable dealer in pre-owned designer items, has one currently for sale at a reduced price of $1525.

I'd love to know what you think of Chanel's Tweed Boucle Knitting Bag. Is it too cute to bother with or is Ashlee Simpson-Wentz onto something here?
