DIY: The Best Chanel Purse Knockoff Ever

Annika Harris | July 9, 2009 - 3:40 pm

Certain areas of NYC, like Canal Street and any street corner where a sheet can be unfurled and then snatched up quickly , are dedicated to selling knockoff designer wares. But there’s an even cheaper way to get a “designer” purse — all you need is a steady hand, a brown paper bag, a Sharpee, and a thin link chain. That’s how the above Chanel-inspired handbag was created. What makes this tongue-in-cheek knockoff even better is that the Double Cs logo isn’t perfect — so there, Karl Lagerfeld! Now if only someone would tell me how to create a DIY Hermes Birkin and my accessories closet could be complete. [Jak & Jil via Fashion Copious]
