Bar Rafaeli, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl and star of that DISGUSTING GoDaddy.com Super Bowl commercial, was recently spotted shopping on Robertson Boulevard in LA, carrying a puffed lambskin Chanel Coco Cocoon Satchel. This bag has been retired by Chanel, but since it's basically the designer bag equivalent of a puffy ski vest, I can't help thinking that maybe that's a good thing. (Though I'm certain puffy ski vests will have their day once again, and subsequently, the Cocoon Satchel will get a nice reissue.)
Of all the luxury leathers out there, I find "puffed lambskin" to be one of the most curious, mainly because it sort of sounds like the wearable biproduct of a kebab stand. But if it's good enough for Bar Rafaeli, it's probably good enough for the rest of us, right? (I'll just continue to try to avoid thinking of helium-inflated baby lambs when I touch it.)
