  • Ah… Really? This seems more like a bad taste use of the huge fame of LEGO name…

    Remove the “LEGO” part and nobody will tell it was inspired by lego.

    What? says:
  • Except for the plastic and the Lego colors .and the way it snaps together. except for those few things it’s not evocative of Lego at all . . .

    Mort D'Urban says:
  • Nice work Matt Carter.
    Love the use of the lego heads!

    Matt says:
  • Wow, how ugly. Doesn’t even look classy. Really cheap plastic stuff. I hope, Chanel will be giving these away for free.

    DS says:
  • I love Chanel, but this is one instance that they’ve pushed the envelop a bit too much. I can only imagine Katy Perry wearing the clutch and the fabric on the pants looks like what i’d upholster my chair in.

    Amy says:
  • Yea Matt, your bag is awesome!
