Chanel’s New Accessory Is Fashionably Zero Waste (And Nearly $6,000)

There’s no question that hydrating via single-use plastic water bottles is déclassé, as well as terrible for the environment. With the multitude of reusable water bottles out there, chances are, if you drink water, there’s a refillable vessel for you. 

Now, that includes fashionistas looking to quench their parched lips as well with the release of Chanel’s new water flask and matching bag.

The gold-toned high fashion accessory is unmistakably Chanel, featuring the house’s signature, interlocking Cs on the black plastic cork and black, quilted lambskin carrying bag, with a golden chain shoulder strap. The ostentatious water bottle is perhaps the most conspicuous way to drink your water, but it won't come cheap, given its nearly $6,000 price tag.

The water flask bag has already been creating a buzz, being on the red carpet at events such as the Grammy’s, where nominee Maggie Rogers was seen carrying the chic water bottle instead of a traditional clutch, accessorizing her Chanel dress.

Despite costing more than five grand, the French fashion house has already sold out, with resell prices reaching $9,500, or about 395 cases of Evian bottled water. Surely a small price to pay to showcase your commitment to reducing plastic in style.
