These are not limited editions – although they come in limited quantities. They’re not artistic collaborations – although a couple of them are arty. They’re not It items – although we can see devotees of the brands asking for them. What they are: a new category of outre designer ware.
Chanel spaceship purse
The French brand gave us the cassette (S/S ’04), the bagel (Prefall ’10), the milk carton (F/W ’14), and the No. 5 perfume bottle (Resort ’14). Now here’s the rocket. Pop the top, and it can even hold a can of Diet Coke (Lagerfeld’s favourite drink). In plexiglass with brass, strass and pearl embellishments, $19,150.
