A decade old Chanel design makes a striking comeback as an ultra-luxurious ankle bag. Once again, the power of social media as an advertising tool and the influential power of celebrities is proven. The design of the accessory is incredibly small – only 3 by 3.5 inches. It debuted during the luxurious fashion house’s 2008 presentation for Spring. Resold by e-commerce store TheRealReal, the mini “carry-all” is picked up by Kendall Jenner who tactfully repurposes it as an ankle bag.
Whether the responses of the luxe item are positive or negative, the point is that the model and reality star is able to bring the attention to a forgotten product that has been released ten years ago. This can potentially fuel an abundance of ankle bags in future couture collections.
