Chanel Makes the Most Luxurious Beach Bag and Towel Set Ever

Categories:Other Brands

The very wealthy are both just like us mortals and not like us at all. They’re like us in that they want to have cute stuff to take to the pool with their friends or on their next beach vacation, but they are not like us in that their next terrycloth beach set might be from Chanel.


The beauty of Chanel’s size is that it can afford to manufacture the kind of fun, idiosyncratic, small-audience pieces that would put a financial strain on a smaller brand. That frees Karl Lagerfeld up to get a little bit funny, and he’s done it with everything from ping pong paddles to surf boards, which fashion obsessives are known to use as home decor. In this case, he’s taking his talents to the beach.

The set, which is part of the brand’s Metiers d’Art 2016 Paris in Rome collection and in stores now, will set you back $1,650 for the towel and tote together. The pair are made of cotton terrycloth patterned to look like classic Chanel tweed, and the material and color variation mean that they’d actually make a pretty functional pool set if you wanted to use them for their intended purpose. If you’re gonna drop the money, you’ll probably end up leaving them safe in your fabulous cabana, though.

Take an Extremely Luxurious Trip with This Crocodile Weekender

Categories:Other Brands

We’re always on the lookout for bags that push the normal bounds of what consumers are generally expected to pay for a handbag on the Internet, and now we’ve got a promising entrant into that arms race. The Maison Ullens Crocodile Tote, which is billed as an ultra-luxe weekender for very fancy travel needs, will set you back a whopping $56,100. (If that’s too fancy for you, the black version is $60,085.)

If you’ve never heard of Maison Ullens, we’ll forgive you–I hadn’t until this bag and some other beautifully French travel options (most at regular fancy-bag prices) popped up for pre-order at Moda Operandi. The brand is French, but that’s more or less all I can tell from its relatively sparse website, which doesn’t offer much in the way of a brand history or heritage pitch on why you should pay this much for its bags, as most of the designers who want to sell at this price level do.

Thinking about spending this much money on a bag, let alone one from an relatively unknown brand, frankly makes me feel a bit nauseous. Moda Operandi tends to pick its brands very, very carefully, though, so if you’ve got stacks of cash sitting around your house instead of furniture and you’re bored, then sure, why not? Since it’s a pre-order, you’ll only have to cough up $28,000 and change beforehand.

It’s worth noting that the sale includes the same bag in leather, plus several other lovely pieces, in the $2,000-$3,000 price range we’re all used to.
