Karl Lagerfeld staged his Spring 2013 collection in Paris this morning and OMFG WTF IS THAT A PURSE? Yes. That is a Chanel bag. It screams, I AM A CHANEL BAG GUYS LOOK AT ME. Like, where is she going? To a pool inside of Cirque du Soleil? To a beach in the future? Is this real life? It is. It is real life, and Karl Lagerfeld has a purse for you. Question: Who will be the first to rock this ridiculousness? Bryan Boy? Gaga? Place your bets, folks. Meanwhile, there were some other things in the show…

Mostly cropped, boxy jackets and sweaters, with slim dresses, skirts or trousers on the bottom.

The classic Chanel pearls showed up on denim jean dresses, on belts, and around necks.
