At first glance, you might think these women are carrying trash bags. Well, they’re not. It’s the latest Chanel plastic carryall, about $1,000, with chain handles and a signature double-C charm. A few are in leather, and, one, below, is a rare satin one. The bag, first spotted in Paris last month, above, is the superstatus bag carried by shoppers on Madison and Fifth Avenues. There is a waiting list of months to buy one.

LOL I really think if you are petite, it does kind of look like a trash bag. Plus I think it is a casual bag and some of those women in those photos look to dressed up for it with what they are wearing. Thats just my opinion.

It is fascinating to see them all together like that.

I would love to know what others think about the picture. What do we think of the dressy ladies in heels carrying the bag?

ETA - Tura**Satana beat me to it!

I can't get over how this picture bothers me. I suppose it is because the same *type* of NYC woman is wearing it... it looks so trendy.

I think if I were to see just one woman carrying this bag, it would look like the fabulous bag that it is, but together, as in this photo?... they look like lemmings.

In other words, a bag that is very distinctive, such as this one, should not go down the street with its sibling on the arm of the person next to you. Carry it when your friend has a different bag on her arm.
