I always appreciate an interesting design concept when it comes to handbags. And that is precisely what you get from the Chanel Take Away Box Bag, a mixture of culture and whimsical fun with one of the bags from the Chanel Shanghai accessories collection.

Clearly inspired by Chinese take-away boxes, this handbag is made with metallic fabric and finished off with a classic leather and metal chain strap. For Chanel bags, this is a very different look. I picture it perfectly on Carrie Bradshaw. While this isn’t the exact bag I would purchase, I completely appreciate the design and idea behind it. But after inquiring I found out the bag is sold out. Price was $7,500 (info via Chanel).

What do you think of the Chanel Take Away Box Bag?

$7,500!?!? No thanks. While I can appreciate the concept of it and the fact that it’s different, I just can’t imagine anyone (aside from the aforementioned Carrie Bradshow perhaps) actually using it.
And does it really need “Take Away” spelled out on the side??? That really kills it for me.

It’s waaaaaaaaay too expensive. I understand it’s like a piece of art but I wouldn’t spend that much in something I almost don’t like. This piece is for real Chanel lovers.

Seriously? This is beyond tacky. I wouldn’t care if it’s $1 – it’s disgusting. I wouldn’t mind it so much if it was just the shape but the ‘TAKE AWAY’… wow. Then again, the shape is too kitschy- like it should be made out of PVC and used as a bag in the 90s.

I usually love Chanel but this is hideous beyond words.

My thoughts, exactly!

It would be 10x better without the “take away” logo in “Asian” lettering. A subtle nod with respect to the inspiration piece is so much better than throwing it directly into people’s faces (i.e. Proenza Schouler’s brown paper bag tote).

How about spending $7,500 to feed some hungry people?

I agree with this being tacky and way overpriced. However, WE ALL could feed the hungry with the money we spend on ANY handbag.

Yeah, the “take away” is ridiculous and this bag has been done before, in no-name brands. That’s way too much money for a piece like this.
