I don’t dig the all-jean look that some people in fashion have embraced over the past six months, but it’s hard to argue with any outfit that includes a giant Chanel Flap Bag in one of the dusky military colors favored by fall’s trends. Photoblogger extraordinaire Tommy Ton, working the events at Lincoln Center for Style.com, managed to capture just that on the street in New York City.

    It’s okay, but Chanel still doesn’t mean that it’s okay to dress like Jay Leno.

    • Kelly

      LOL! That is totally a Jay Leno outfit!

  • courtney

    Still no good. I have that exact same shirt and wouldn’t dream of wearing it that way – with or w/out my Chanel:) The bag, on the other hand, is gorgeous!

  • Lori

    I am looking forward to the day when I can look at Chanel and not think of FUR. The whole winter line is so awful!

    • Well, at least it was fake fur. I’ll give Karl a few points for that.

      • Lori

        Good point.

  • michelle ( another one)

    I wonder if this is why chanel probably increased their price on the flapbag. Either too many people are have it or they are dress like this by brining down the style and value of the bag.

  • PT

    The Classic Jumbo and Maxi are great casual bags!

  • MsJeanDC

    Is it Chanel that makes it work or the magic of Jenna?


  • dalohavida.blogspot.com

    It looks like Jenna Lyons outfit….Hmmm??? Only she could look this good in mis-matched denim!


  • MsJeanDC

    @dalohavida: JINX! but don’t you agree, mismatched denim much better than MATCHED denim?

    • dalohavida.blogspot.com

      Oh my!! that is too funny…yes the mis matched denim looks so much better on Jenna…and those shoes…..

  • Handbag Lover

    This bag is hot! I want one sooooo bad.

  • Lucky girl

    Denim pants and white T with this gorgeous bag. That’s what I’d do. Don’t care so much for an all denim look.

  • bisbee

    My stepchildren refer to this looks as a “Canadian uniform” – please, if you are Canadian, I mean nothing negative by this, just relating something. I never understood…it’s something they said when DH would wear a chambray shirt with jeans…which I understand is now fashionable in some quarters.

    I agree – I’d much rather pair jeans with a white or black T shirt…

  • Chris

    The all denim look – not really my favourite. However, the handbag is very fab.

  • Candice

    Bisbee- its the Canadian tuxedo lol!!!!! and i am Canadian…so i can say this :P

    • I said “Canadian tuxedo” on here one time and someone got very, very mad at me.

  • jack

    I said ¡°Canadian tuxedo¡± on here one time and someone got very, very mad at me

  • mbtmvp

    I agree ¨C I¡¯d much rather pair jeans with a white or black T shirt

  • Demi

    I like pairing designer bags with jeans, but i’m not that into the all-denim look…

  • edoardo

    A stupid outfit can become amazing with just a chanel bag…and in this case it’s gorgeus the look!!


  • louch

    I actually like it. I’m not a fan at all of the whole denim look but somehow the flap makes it work. I’d like to see the shoes as well to get a better idea of the whole outfit. I love the colour of the flap.

  • Mochababe73

    I don’t mind the all denim look. Personally, I wouldn’t wear it.
    But that bag I would wear everyday of the week.

  • Charaze

    I’m not such a huge fan of some Chanel bags but this is really cute! It goes with every denim outfit. Love the straps, too.

  • Saa’iybah

    Omgeee!, this is lovely! i love the casual look it brings out :)

  • jm0979

    love the purse and great with casual look!

  • kat

    is this a new color for the chanel flap? does anyone know what color this is?

  • linda

    I can’t desire between lambskin and cavier. Does anyone help me think about it? I’m thinking to buy my first chanel,so I’d like to get classic chanel flap black jumbo size in gold chain color. However, I heard from many people if I wanna buy it, I should buy cavier but I like lambskin look. Does lambskin take too much attention? How long can I keep the lambskin bag?

  • Janine
