I have a really important announcement to make: Chanel’s new chunky clutch is not a certifiable LEGO handbag. They did not collaborate. Chanel did not ask to make a LEGO-esque bag. They may not even know they did.
I am totally in love with it and I too want to own one. But I think it’s important that people get the facts about these things. Proof here. If you’re going to spend your money, you should know that LEGO isn’t going to get a penny.
Also, it really is kind of a rip. I know, it’s not EXACTLY a LEGO shape, but it’s damn close. And the colors are damn close too. This is why everyone is calling it the LEGO handbag, but really, it’s not. It’s a Chanel bag inspired by LEGO… or so it seems. I feel better now.
i09 posed an important question this week: Could The Hunger Games get published today?
The reasoning is straight forward enough: dystopia is everywhere, YA has gotten less violent because of outside pressures and on and on. But not a single publisher said they disliked The Hunger Games books, so of course it would be published. And we’d all be obsessed all over again.
My favorite thing in life is seeing my name in print… did you know that? Probably makes me a narcissist.
