Karl Clearly Just Effing with Us Now

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

So the big, bad Saks Fifth Avenue Fall Catalog just showed up at our doorstep, and the thing that stopped us in our tracks -- and NOT in the good way -- was the Karl's Cabas handbag from Chanel. Doubleyou-tee-eff. It's fugly. It's pricey (Saks lists it at $3,850). And the mixed media monstrosity isn't even original; it just looks like a furry version of the hidie bag Marc Jacobs did for Louis Vuitton in 2007. Ha ha, and in a reversal of fortune (literally) in this morning's iPad case blurb, the Louis Vuitton fug was actually much, much pricier. [Saks Fifth Avenue]
