Kris Jenner carries a black Chanel Hula Hoop Flap Bag (5)

When Chanel trotted the full-size Chanel Hula Hoop Flap Bag on the runways for Chanel Spring 2013, they insisted this showpiece wouldn’t be available for purchase. But after an unexpectedly warm reception to the idea, they made a few anyways, along with a more wearable, wranglable mini version. The bag you see here is a chic black mini version of the Chanel Hula Hoop Flap Bag, on the arm of Kris Jenner in NYC. This bag, surprisingly, looks a lot less gimmicky and cartoonish in all-black, though it seems to lose some of its hoop-like integrity when weighed down with a modest amount of personal belongings. These bags are currently nowhere to be found, but you can shop an authentic selection of vintage and pre-owned Chanel at Portero.

Truth be told, I’m highly surprised Kris Jenner hasn’t been spotted accidentally hooping innocent by-standers with the full size version of this bag on either coast. She loves black and white, she loves high-end bags, and she loves making headlines. (And I definitely saw her eyeing one on the last season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.) Could you see yourself carrying this kooky version of Chanel’s signature Flap Bag?

      It’s a really nice bag, but it will be hands off to everyone else’s. Only the privilege ones has the upper hand to have them. This is what sucks!

    She has rings in all her fingers. Is that suppose to alleviate pain from an arthritic pain in fingers or fashion faux pas? Just curious.

    it looks great on her

    • peggy

      It would looked great on anyone, regardless. It’s the availability that won’t be great for us all ordinary people.

    the media should stop paying attention to her Jenner/Kardashian clan … no matter what they carry or wear they don’t look classy… it’s like a pig wearing a pearl necklace…

    I love the more wearable version. It’s cute and different while still maintaining that classic Chanel look.

    Our home is in Phoenix however my fiancé works in downtown Portland so we keep an apartment there. While Barney’s, Saks, Neimans, etc. are absent from Portland, this Nordstrom is a gem for luxury bags. Nordstrom Notes are much easier to redeem than inCircle points through Neiman’s plus Portland has no sales tax!

    I work at Nordstrom Fashion Valley in San Diego and we had the hula hoop bag for all of 24 hours before it was sold but in that time, I was able to play with it and I fell in love. However, it’s coming to my attention that he bag is already getting saggy and I’m wondering if it’s too heavy. It’s not exactly the best look, I think maybe the smaller size is better because you’re forced to pack light.
