Chanel’s Petrol Tank Bag Is Our New Favourite Thing
Forget his AW14 Supermarket Sweep; Karl Lagerfeld took inspiration from the forecourt for his Dubai Cruise collection…

Chanel’s 2015 Cruise collection was unveiled in Dubai yesterday and Karl Lagerfeld’s inspiration seems to have moved from the supermarket to the gas station forecourt. Enter the petrol tank handbag.
Gold and quilted with the label’s interlocking Cs stitched on, the showpiece was clearly a nod to host city Dubai’s overwhelming wealth, but for us it was just about the coolest thing we’ve ever seen.
Also available in black, Lily Allen is already a fan, taking to Instagram to declare the bag, “Very important.”
While we’re not sure we’ll have saved up quite enough cash to get our hands on one this time next year, Karl’s definitely provided us with a fun DIY project for the weekend – just make sure your petrol can is empty before attempting to punch holes for a chain handle.
