Jumping Through Hula Hoops...The Chanel saga continues

Remember my post entitled : "Hula Hoop Handbags at Chanel"...?  Whaddaya mean No!
Well here is the link as a refresher:

I thought that would be the end of that...we had a laugh,we pointed fingers and we laid it to rest. After all we are talking about an actual hula hoop with a classic 2.55 Chanel bag stitched across the bottom and priced at £1,500 for a 24cm across version...Yes!! There is a price tag involved in this travesty!!

Designers often create "pieces" that are meant for the catwalk show only...call them "statement pieces" that do just that and then are never produced for retail. 
The  Chanel Hula Hoop wagonwheel started showing up on certain "fashionistas/bloggers"during Fashion week....Yes it takes all kinds and freaks do frequent Fashion week to get papped,smooched and applauded for their cunning and daring. 
But something unheard of happened,this farcical,cumbersome "bag" turned up at the Chanel Corner in Selfridges, modelled by the  One and Only Queen of Senseless Sensationalism : Kris Jenner .
Need I fill in the gaps?

    Now to add insult to injury; the great Karl Lagerfeld himself has provided an answer as to whom in their right mind would want to invest in something so gymnastic (without the benefit of whittling down your waist but only enhancing the hump that is progressively growing on our backs from the Ma- houssive handbags we schlep around anyway!!!):

    " It's for the beach....You need space for the beach towel. And then you can put it into the sand and hang things on it...."

    Well next to beach towel you can also place your brain 'cos that's obviously been frazzled by the sun and if you are Justin Bieber you can place your monkey  or Kim can carry Kanye...to keep him by her side....
    As for "the things that you can hang" on it ,well they are as obvious as the nose on your face:

    a) your dignity
    b)your self worth and
    c)... your pride 'cos they aren't going to be worth shit once you've been seen with this parody of good taste.

    It is good to know that Coco's Chanel is in such capable hands...
